FIREPROOF

The world keeps evolving daily. As the world evolves, Christianity is also evolving dynamically. Today, the gospel is no longer preached through the traditional and conventional means; the gospel is preached with every available medium, and this is quite commendable.

One of the many means of preaching the gospel today is movie. The cinema culture has been embraced by both believers and unbelievers which makes it a viable platform to preach the gospel.

There are a lot of gospel film makers today who are trying to match up with the quality in the non-gospel film making industry. However, one of the most successful gospel movies in recent times is Fireproof. The film is an American Christian drama written by Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick, and directed by Alex Kendrick.

Fireproof is a well written drama that centres on marriage and the importance of communication, understanding, humility and compromise. The writers’ portray Caleb as a hero at work and respected fireman but who never gets a corresponding respect from his wife at home. Ironically, the wife, Katherine, does not see Caleb as a hero because she feels he is never concerned about her feelings. As far as Katherine is concerned, Caleb is an award winning irresponsible and selfish man who only cares about how to save enough money to acquire a boat. As a result of these negative feelings which lead to heated arguments, Katherine wants a divorce. Caleb eventually agrees out of frustration and a deep feeling of disrespect.

It must be added that Katherine had started nursing an amorous feeling for a colleague at work. Interestingly, here is a Caleb who is known for an inspiring phrase at work, ‘’you never leave your partner, especially during fire’’. That is usually his line whenever he’s drilling his team members at work. But it seems like he has chosen to concur with his wife to tow the opposite path of that statement. Caleb’s closest friend does not want him to divorce and seriously advised him against it. Caleb’s parents also stand against the divorce. His father went to further to ask Caleb to hold on with the divorce proceedings, making him to commit himself to a 40-DAY LOVE DARE experiment which eventually transformed Caleb, saved his marriage, and even transformed Katherine.

THE FIREPROOF story is very timely and essential, especially for marriages that are going through serious challenges and on the verge of collapse. It is a beautiful piece that teaches the importance of sacrifice in marriage and essentials of sincere communication; most importantly, the place of Jesus Christ in our lives.

However, it must be said that the movie is a little bit dull and lifeless especially at the beginning, apart from few fire scenes. An impatient and hyperactive individual would have traveled some miles in dreamland before he realising a movie was still showing. Nonetheless, the cinematography was beautiful, soundtracks and audio were beautiful, and directing was okay. It must be said that the main actors gave a good account of themselves.

That said, Fireproof is a good Christian movie that must be present in every Christian home and a good recommendation for couples and aspiring couples. No wonder the movie, shot with $500,000 grossed $33,473,297 at the Box Office, and won many awards including Best Feature Film award at the 2009 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. Mind you, the movie was released in 2008 and still very relevant today.
