Trailer for Fire with Fire with Willis, Duhamel, Dawson, and 50 Cent goes down in flames

Jun. 18, 2012by: Paul Shirey

FIRE WITH FIRE, a new action flick starring Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, and, wait for it, 50 Cent, is coming your way and today you can have a look at the first trailer. I don't want to spoil the experience, so I'll reserve my thoughts until after you've had a look.

Flame on?:

What's kind of baffling to me is that this movie got made with a fairly reputable cast and has come out looking like an action-heavy episode of CSI. Yet, even as goofy as this whole thing looks, I'm still kind of intrigued to see it. On video, of course, which is probably the preferred method anyway. This doesn't exactly look IMAX ready...

I'm going to skip out on bashing 50 Cent and leave that to you. There are plenty of rappers-turned-actors that have done all right for themselves, but some should just stick to their roots, in my opinion. I love Rosario Dawson and could watch her dancing on a rooftop any day, but would really like to see her in some more esteemed work. There's always the SIN CITY sequel...

What do you guys think of this?

Here's the synopsis:

An off-duty fireman (Duhamel) is witness to a gang murder and agrees to testify, but when the witness protection program proves useless, he resolves to hunt down the gang leader on his own to protect the woman he loves.

FIRE WITH FIRE is set to open sometime in September.

Extra Tidbit: What is it about Josh Duhamel that's keeping him from leading man status? Acting? Looks? What are your thoughts?

Boooo!

This looks like a straight to dvd action flick with a bunch of good actors. I wonder if this was a tax write off. This will be a guilty pleasure for someone.

I didn't watch the trailer but ever since 50cent made all that money with the vitamin water BS he funds his own films, and hires somewhat famous actors to be in them, Val Kilmer, Willis, Phillippe ect. I have tried to watch 2 they were both horrible horrible movies.

Ruined Anyways

They pretty much showed Rosario's character getting sniped in the trailer...just another subpar action-movie that may make 10-15 million the opening weekend.

Ludacris is a damn good actor. There is an episode of Law and Order SVU that he is in that blew me away.

That's not a Bruce Willis role. I get sticking him in a supporting role, but to give him nothing makes no sense. Rosario Dawson, Willis and Josh Duhamel are actors with some rep, D'Onofrio, sadly, is not anymore. One of the most amazing actors today and he blew his wad on Law & Order it seems. And Jackson just never did make the right impact.

I think either Duhamel is too good-looking, not good enough, or too apt to take the rom-com to be a leading man right now. I'm not sure how to judge

I'm pretty sure every person who has ever hired Duhamel thought it was Olyphant too. "You're telling me that's NOT the guy from Justified???!!"
