Take a chance - it's an interesting flick
7 July 2001 | by morjanaSee all my reviews

What a dichotomy! Directed by Alan Smithee but written by Tom Fontana. Alan Smithee is the pseudonym for Directors who have asked to have their names removed from the Directing Credits of films. Alan Smithee films have usually have a noticeable, ah, bouquet about them.

However, Tom Fontana, is a well respected name for creating solid TV series and for his craft in writing.

Take a chance on this film. It is different. Some very solid performances by Richard Dean Anderson, Bert Young and Skip Sudduth (of Third Watch fame).

Also, a correction on the synopsis of the film by a previous reviewer. The movie concerns a New York City Fire Company, and the drama revolves around of the firemen being shot by a sniper.
