I always felt like this film was a cheap Hollywood exploitation of the firefighter following the 9/11 tragedy. It drew big numbers at the box office from sympathetic viewers but ultimately, the film was just ok.

Ladder 49 is a dramatic realistic look at life as a firefighter, at times sad, funny and very moving. The story focuses on Jack Morrison a freshman at a new firehouse, you watch his life through flashbacks as he lays underneath a pile of rubble waiting to be rescued. At times the movie is slow, that is because this is a realistic look at being a fireman which means that they don't go to fires ever... read more

Honestly, before watching this, I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since it was starring John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix, I thought I should give it a try. Eventually, it ended up being the best movie about the subject I have ever seen. I mean, it is not like any I have seen 1000's movies about firefighters and it doesn't mean it is a masterpiece but I thought the whole thing was pretty... read more

"30.08.2014 "People are always asking me how is it that firefighters run into a burning building when everyone else is running out. Courage is the answer." I really wanted this movie to be good. Firefighters are some of the bravest people out there and definitely some of my heroes. So it's a shame there are so few movies dedicated to them when the police gets about 500 movies about them a year. That is why i really wanted this one to be good. But sadly, it really wasn't. This was incredibly bor"

“Ladder 49 is a dramatic realistic look at life as a firefighter, at times sad, funny and very moving. The story focuses on Jack Morrison a freshman at a new firehouse, you watch his life through flashbacks as he lays underneath a pile of rubble waiting to be rescued. At times the movie is slow, that is because this is a realistic look at being a fireman which means that they don't go to fires every second. As I said you watch Jack's life through flashbacks, along the way you meet his Captain played by John Travolta and his teammates who are arrange of good actors, as well as his wife Linda played by Jacinda Barrett. I really enjoyed this film, it is slow paced drama. It is a really good firefighter movie, and worth a look.” read more

A good movie

I mean, it is not like any I have seen 1000's movies about firefighters and it doesn't mean it is a masterpiece but I thought the whole thing was pretty entertaining but still rather realistic. John Travolta gave, as usual, a decent performance and Joaquin Phoenix was just impressive (thank God he dropped the whole retirement-I-wanna-be-a-rapper thing!). I know it is not a really popular flick but I think it is actually rather underrated. Of course, the story is nothing mind-blowing whatsoever and it is actually rather predictable but they manage” read more
