ire with Fire
Starring: Josh Duhamel, Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio
Released straight-to-DVD in the US (never a good sign), this lacklustre revenge thriller has fireman Duhamel witnessing a murder, going into police protection and falling for the FBI agent (Rosario Dawson) assigned to look after him.
While that sounds a bit like Ridley Scott’s superior Someone to Watch Over Me, this has a (dumb) twist – our hunky hero doesn’t just sit back and wait for the cops to get the bad guys, he decides to take matters into his own hands and turns vigilante.
Willis and D’Onofrio pop up as the world-weary cop and main baddy respectively, but even their enjoyably gruff screen personas can’t save this forgettable movie from being a dull dud.
