For a movie that focuses on pilots, fire-jumpers and fire the cockpit SFX are truly badly done and almost feel 1970's. That aside the basic storyline of a hotshot pilot who feels he's caused the death of some fire-jumper friends and drops out of circulation, only to return on discovery of a 'super fire'. Cliched but made more believable with excellent fire SFX.
The fire shelter scene is especially intense and well done while the rest of the movie is watchable with flashes of brilliance (sometimes literally!).

Purchased because this was one of those flicks that had a tantalizing scene - one that stayed with me for many years as I caught a portion of the film at some point, but for reasons I can't recall, never finished.

The scene features one of my favorite character actors, Wes Studi, as a senior smokejumper talking about how some survivors of fire can functionally be alive, but are, in actuality, the living dead. He explains to a young recruit how fire can superheat air to the point where it cooks your lungs. That, even if you survived the flames while in a fire tent, you'd find yourself desperately thirsty - a thirst you'd never be able to quench. All the while as you drown in your own fluids. Yikes.

Crazy stuff. And stuff that sticks with you long after the source material has long passed from memory. So I finally picked up a used copy for a decent price, intent on finally finishing this film.

While my curiosity and need for closure was satisfied - my interest was not so easily sated.

'Superfire' is a tv movie with an assembly line script, typical melodrama and cardboard cut-out characters for the actors to step into. No real talent required. And I hate saying that because I happen to be a fan of D.B. Sweeney. An actor who teetered on the edge of stardom back in the 90s, but seemingly lost his mojo at the turn of the millennium. Sadly so, because he still has the chops for good roles. (check out 'Jericho' - one of those amazing short-lived programs that hardcore fans prop up long after its cancellation, myself included)

Tells the story of James Merrick, a cocky flying firefighter who plays fast and loose with the rules.

I think of this movie as a very good film it is about a small town with not a lot to do the kids get together to go camping when they find them self's cut of by a large forest fire the fight to stay alive. The young Ellen Muth is looking for her mother.

I like to collect movies about disasters such as fires, tornados and earthquakes, and this one did not disappoint! I watch it at least once each year!
