I would recommend this to all.
I bought this because of all the great actors in it. And was not disappointed in any way. A lot of suspense, drama, and some romance, everything that makes a great movie.

Brian McCaffrey's father's a fireman and he was there, as a child, when his father died. When he grew he tried to be a fireman but quit and left town and for a few years tried other jobs. He would eventually return and try to be fireman again. However, he finds himself working under his brother Stephen whom he doesn't exactly have a good relationship with. When Brian gets his picture in the paper and is lauded as a hero when in fact it was a mistake, a politician offers him a job working under the department's arson investigator, Donald Rimgale. It seems that Ringale is working some unusual fires wherein someone is killed. Brian initially refuses but when he has too many confrontations with Stephen, he takes the job. And he gets a lesson on what it means to be a fireman. Ron Howard did a wonderful job of bringing some of the real-life problems that firefighters face everyday in Backdraft. Very realistic, well directed, excellent movie.Read full review

I love the character Kurt Russell plays. He loves his family, but is so misunderstood. his father died in a fire, and he is trying to over protect his brother and train him to be a good fire fighter at the same time. what I hate about the movie is Kurt Russell dieing in the end. I've seen this movie once on tv and I liked it. I wanted to see if it was better with no commercial interuptions and all the good parts either bleeped out or cut out. the movie is fantastic!
