Okay my synopsis is going to make it sound better than it really is I am sure. A gung ho fireman is injured while saving a little boy from a house fire, meanwhile his brother is trying to set-up and bust a crooked man who owns most of the town and is running a very dangerous refinery that ends up catching fire while he is there inspecting it. The whole town goes up and the small, unequipped clinic in the middle of town is getting all of the fire victims and it is caught in the middle of a burning town. Firefighters have to get them out the best they can and all kinds of other junk is going on too...okay so my description isn't good either.
This movie is bad production. The fires are either edited from old footage or CGI, the acting is horrible for the most part, and the good actors in this d-list cast have stupid dialog and actions to work with. This plot is bad...
I mean a movie starting out with Ice-T "the cop killer" playing a cop as he seems to always do, as well as some nobody actor I have never seen before, is not a way to scream "watch this movie". We see all kinds of has beens and never have been actors like Tom Arnold, Cathy Lee Crosby, Amanda Pays, Pat Harrington, Jr., Edward Albert, Michael Dudikoff, Mary Jo Catlett, William Zabka and Christian Oliver.
The movie is directed by sequel king turned porn king Jimmy Wynorski, who has brought us movies like BIG BAD MOMMA II, 976-EVIL II, THE RETURN OF THE SWAMP THING and SORRORITY HOUSE MASSACRE II.
Stupid story lines include the cops in a dangerous high speed pursuit of a man who has a bomb taped to his chest; a little boy lighting toilet paper on fire attaching it to his airplane and throwing it on the floor in his bedroom, and workers in thick protective outfits welding while standing next to gasoline drainage.
I didn't hate this movie, it was fun at times, and so bad it was good at other times. It looked like it was made for TV, but it has language of an R rating. I give it 3 out of 10 stars, its not a fireman movie like backdraft, its just a silly drama with many major problems.
