This movie... gosh... the acting is... unparalleled. The portrayal of smokejumpers... spot on. The manner in which aerial ignition devices are used is completely accurate. The use of hardened, homicidal convicts on wildfires... I mean, we do that....right? And of course, the sawyer skills exhibited by the hero warrant the entire retooling of the S-212 course (to make it reflect the movie better). I mean, watching our hero drop start a chainsaw and wield it one-handed whilst piloting a dirt bike makes the whole cringe-worthy movie worthwhile. And of course... we parachute out of helicopters on the reg...
Ok, if you couldn't tell, that was a bit satirical. If you aren't familiar with this occupation, this movie is NOT even a close representation of what the work is like. BUT like so many hacky, cheesy movies from this era, if you want to turn your brain off for 2 hours and have a good laugh, this is the movie for you. For folks in the "biz", we put this movie on in the background of our end of the year gathering, have a GREAT laugh and take it for what it is... ENJOY
Many people have said that Howie Long's performance in this film is quite poor. I think that he did a fine job. I can honestly say his performance is totally adequate. William Forsythe is quite a decent villain too. Neither hammy nor campy. I'm glad he was in the movie.
But I'm not glad the film was a flop. It would have been a big hit if it was longer and had more plot. You can't call a film FIRESTORM and have only a few seconds worth of fire in it. I don't know what has been cut from this film but it has damaged it severely. Chris Soth is the only person credited with writing this film but rumor has it that Graeme Yost actually wrote the first draft but used his affiliation with the of the WGA to take if off after they hashed his script around too much.
Although it is bare-boned and anorexic it is still a cool film to watch.
It really would benefit from a Blu Ray release though.
This is one of those movies I can watch over and over again.
I just love movies set in the wilderness. Especially with a group of crazy convicts posing as Canadian Firefighters-- Eay!
I even enjoyed the soundtrack
This movie has some really scary fire storm scenes especially when it roars over the lake & they are in it
