Backdraft (1991) - Kurt Russell, William Baldwin & Robert De Niro - A rookie firefighter tries to earn the respect of his older brother and other firefighters while taking part in an investigation of a string of arson/murders. This detailed look into the duties and private lives of firemen naturally features widespread pyrotechnics and special effects.
An engine company is on fire when an arsonist attempts to recreate the Great Chicago Fire and an inspector (Robert DeNiro) is giving the men a hotfoot to solve this thing (Kurt Russell as a seasoned smokeeater; William Baldwin as his rookie kid brother). Directed by Ron Howard ("Ransom"). Written by Gregory Widen ("Highlander"), himself a firefighter for a time.

Backdraft This broke my heart but it was such a moving and dramatic realistic movie I had to watch it. Especially since I nearly died in a fire, lost consciousness and quit breathing. It is difficult for me to watch but necessary.
