Somewhere inside this movie is another Die Hard waiting to get out. Aclassic exercise on what not to do when making an action epic - to wit:don't sellout your action scenes with chop sockey editing that rendersyour story incomprehensible. Don't try to rip off little bits of otheraction movies and do them with less panache.

Despite all the snark, Howie does a pretty good job and with a gooddirector he might have made something of it. Hell, Glenn and Forsytheare experienced actors and they suck eggs in every scene- that's thedirector and editor's fault. I think if someone had given the rawfootage to John McTiernan we might have seen a different, and decent,movie. If I remember correctly, Long was voted Male Star of Tomorrow atShoWest 1997.

So bad that is enjoyable as a comedyReviewed byDragonflyS6Vote: 4/10

This is one of those films that you can really get a kick out of because it is so bad. It is almost like someone took "Cheesey Movie Making 101." The casting is surprisingly good, the acting itself isn't bad, but script is humorously appalling and the characters are incredibly predictable and shallow. We actually had a very good time predicting characters' next lines with an amusing amount of success. The opening scene is hilarious (small dog included, I kid you not). Speaking as someone who has worked in the wildland fire the movie is completely unrealistic, particularly the beginning and end, the movie has nice symmetry that way. (To name a few errors, you light a backfire to eliminate the fuels-not the oxygen, we do not fly aircraft at night, and, trust me on this one, EVERYONE wears sunglasses.) This is actually quite successful as a satire on action films. Unfortunately for the film makers, I don't think that is what was intended.

Toasty, by-the-numbers b-grade natural disaster action joint which hasa stout-hearted Howie Long playing a smoke-jumper that has to tacklefirestorms and William Forsythe's gleefully hammy bad guy persona.Forsythe is great and you know you can always expect a show wheneverhis on screen, as he simply knows how to play devious tyrants. Alsoalong for the heatwave are Scott Glenn and Barry Pepper. Simple-mindedwriting makes sure that the bubblegum action flows with the blatantheroics coming to the forefront, which is led by Long and Glenn. Hammydialogues (I can't remember the last time I heard someone be called abutt-munch) are filtered in and the stunt-work can get hot and heavy.Too bad some of the computer effects come off rather lousy, especiallyduring the final climatic scenes. Director Dean Semler (who wascinematographer for such films as "Mad Max 2" and "Razorback") keeps itrugged and heightens it with some stylish shots of the woodlandterrain. Disposable, but crackling entertainment.
