This movie is about a firefighters life and how he is remembering the good time while his fellow firefighters try to get him out before it is to late. This movie tells the dangerous life of a firefighter. I guaranteer after watching this movie that you will never look at a firefighter the same. I liked this movie because it sends a message. I think that after people watch this movie they will look at firefighter different. I think that they will realize that these men and women are there to do something that most people would not do. I also thin that this is dedicated to the firefighters and their families. This movie has a lot of action and will keep people wondering what will happen next.

Loved the cast in this, expecially my number 4 fave actor of all time Joaquin Phoenix who is the main charector in this film proby fireman Jack Morrison who after saving a worker from a burning industrial highrise ends up trapped himself and as his team leader Capt. Mike Kennedy(John Travolta) and his other fellow fire fighters look to rescue him, we look back in time as he shows us his joining of company 49 and life associated with, Alot of critics had panned th...
