Every young boy going up has a fantasy of becoming astronauts, firefighters, police officers, Olympic athletes, etc.
I personally wanted to be an astronaut but fireman was a close second and when I first saw Backdraft I was completely enamored. And even after growing up and picking a better and more interesting career path I still find Backdraft an excellent movie and brings back great memo... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. I have noticed that, even though there are countless movies about cops, there are somehow not so many movies about firefighters and this movie must be by far the most famous one about this subject. It is easy to understand why as the firefighting scenes were just so damned imp... read more

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. I have noticed that, even though there are countless movies about cops, there are somehow not so many movies about firefighters and this movie must be by far the most famous one about this subject. It is easy to understand why as the firefighting scenes were just so damned impressive, even more than 20 years later. Indeed, you really get the feeling that you are out there with those guys and they managed to give the fire some kind of mesmerising quality. Unfortunately, to be honest, pretty much everything else wasn't really good, I'm afraid. I mean, they had a really solid cast and they did what they could but instead of focusing only on the MacCaffrey brothers which s” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2016 (31 movies items)

" VHS- 2hrs. 15min. First Viewing As a piece of studio blockbuster fare, Backdraft is pretty strong. As a complete story however, it's pretty goofy. The script is all over the place, in terms of both story (fairly episodic) and tone (at times, bipolar), and the plot points are ones that you can see coming from a mile away. It's pretty well-made though; the sound and visual effects are some of the finest put to film, and things move along decently. The cast is solid too, if often misused; Russell "
