Two firefighting brothers (Kurt Russell and William Baldwin) are forced to confront the ghosts of their past whilst pursuing an arsonist who targets prominent members of Chicago's political elite.
Former TV actor Ron Howard ("Happy Days") directed this high-profile Hollywood blockbuster, in which a cast of solid B-list actors and A-list supporting players (Robert DeNiro, Donald Sutherland, et al) are upstaged by scenes of fiery devastation, wrought with frightening intensity by incredible stuntwork and state-of-the-art visual effects. Plot-wise, the film is an old-fashioned barnstormer, directed with gee-whizz efficiency by Howard, whose attempts to wring high emotion from Greg Widen's corny script rings entirely false from the outset. Hans Zimmer's generic music score is overbearing in places, particularly during the 'tragic' finale.

Spectacular fire scenes, but the drama is hopelessly insincereReviewed byLibretioVote: 4/10
Visually, pic often is exhilarating, but it's shapeless and dragged down by corny, melodramatic characters and situations.
There is more then enough cop, lawyer and doctor movies and shows but this movie and Rescue Me as a TV show are the best representations of what it's like to be a firefighter and what they do for a living. Going into burning buildings and bringing people out. Ron Howard really gets his actors in there with the fire it's not them in unrealistic fires where they're not even close to the flames, very well done by the effects team.
The story is about a pair of brothers whose dad was also a fireman. Kurt Russell plays the father and also the older brother Stephen who's a veteran firefighter and now a Lieutenant while William Baldwin plays the younger brother Brian who after bouncing around from job to job finally decided to get into the family business and is now a probationary at firefighter as part of Stephen's fire company.
