Ron Howard's Backdraft will make kids want to be firemen, and scare the hell out of their mothers. Brothers Kurt Russell and William Baldwin battle fires and a secret avenging arsonist. Howard skillfully uses special effects to engulf the audience in the fire scenes, creating the best adventure film of the year. The fire becomes a character, an alien coming to destroy and devour the buildings it enters. Donald Sutherland, as a convicted pyromaniac, adds to the atmosphere of danger which surrounds the film.

This is a top quality, top of the line adventure. Don't miss it.
