'Fire With Fire' With Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson And Rosario Dawson Coming Out On DVD Nov. 6th

The suspense/action thriller Fire with Fire toplined by Bruce Willis, Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Vincent D’Onofrio, is set to be released on standard and Blu-ray DVD on Nov. 6th, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

The film deals with a firefighter (Duhamel), who, after witnessing a black convenience store owner and his son killed during a robbery by white sumpremacist Hagen (D’Onofrio), is placed into a witness protection program. Howveer, when Hagen finds out who the witness testifying aginst him is, and and severely wounds his girlfriend (Dawson) during an attempt on his life, Duhamel joins up with the leader of a rival gang (Fiddy) to take revenge.

Now, with a cast and storyline like that, I immediately wondered why the film was going straight to DVD and not to the big screen. Well that was until I saw a trailer for the film (which I can’t post here unfortunately, but you can check out HERE), and, as you can see, it’s rather on the straight-for-the-DVD-market, made-on-the-cheap side.

But, no doubt, I’ll check it out anyway, since the premise still intrigues me.

I just picked up Hardwired because it looks like the ultimate B-flick. Val Kilmer, Cuba Gooding Jr, and Michael Ironside. Between crazy action and cheesy dialogue jalapeno-flavored popcorn, I'm sure to be entertained. I love these off-beat movies because I never know which will turn out to be the diamond in the rough.


This storyline has auteur(s) Werner Herzog(bad lieutenant:port of call), Nicolas Winding Refn & Takashi Miike written all over it, what a shame.

Thanks Sergio. The action and acting looks sound eventhough the production value and lighting is low budget. But Ill check it out for sure. I'd rather watch 50 cent act if you can call it that before watching Boheem Woodbine and Sticky Fingaz anyday.
