This film has a very powerful story alongside a powerful soundtrack. It is emotional and heart wrenching. It gives you some idea of the dangers firemen face and the devastation fire can cause. It is a journey of life with the highs and the lows and the storyline is good. A film that I really enjoyed watching and have watched more than once. Definitely one to remember.

FIRE!!!
Verified purchase
This has to be maybe the best "Fire-Movie" ever done, or?. It`s at least WAY WAY BETTER than the awful "Backdraft".
Very well played by Mr. Phoenix as the lead role. And it ends differently than the average film!!!
