ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review This movie is very orange. Not surprising, considering it's director Ron Howard's tribute to firefighters. Kurt Russell and William Baldwin play two brothers, one whose a fireman and one who would like to be, with some fundamental differences. It's more than the average buddy picture -- the characters are better rounded than that -- and the special effects are amazing. Robert DeNiro and Donald Sutherland shine in supporting roles. At times, the story falters, and the picture takes a while to build up steam, but the closing hour makes it well worth a viewing.

Review Ron Howard's "Backdraft" is a movie half in love with fire, a film like "Fahrenheit 451" that finds something seductive in tendrils of smoke and boiling cauldrons of flame. Never before in the movies have I seen fire portrayed by such convincing, encompassing special effects. Unfortunately, they are at the service of an unworthy plot...What is particularly impressive is the way the filmmakers are able to convince us the stars are in the middle of the action. A conventional fire scene uses doubles and stand-ins, over-the-shoulder shots and other evasive tricks, for brief scenes showing men in the middle of a fire.
