The sons of a Chicago fireman who gave his life in the performance of his duties, firefighting brothers Kurt Russell and William Baldwin carry their lifelong sibling rivalry into their work. Russell is convinced that Baldwin hasn't got what it takes to remain in the fire department. Baldwin is transferred to a "safe" assignment, assisting arson investigator Robert DeNiro, who is trying to make sense of a series of fires involving an oxygen-induced ball of fire called a backdraft. The investigation reveals a link between corrupt alderman J. T. Walsh and imprisoned pyromaniac Donald Sutherland. The trail of evidence leads Baldwin to suspect that his brother Russell, a much-decorated hero, may be the "inside" man setting up the arsons.

Backdraft 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Coming from a line of fireman, I absolutely love this film and Donald Sutherland's portrayal as a pyromaniac--right on target! Firefighters are some of the toughest of this society and the most incorruptable (same thing can't be said about the police or politicans, who the latter are criminals in my book). A great tribute to these fine young men and women, especially in the light of 9/11.

Movie really brings home the jobs of the fire departments in our country. A must see movie.

I would have to give the movie Backdraft a perfect 10! It gives a realistic glimpse into the life of a real firefighting squad. It magically mixes mystery, honor, bravery, and love into one exceptionally produced and directed 135-minute movie. Kurt Russell, Robert DeNiro, and William Baldwin are three actors who did tremendous jobs in filling the personalities of their characters. Kurt and William play two feuding brothers who work in the same fire department. William later quits and becomes Robert¿s sidekick in investigating a series of arson fires. Overall, this is a really exceptional movie and I would recommend this movie to anyone whether they are into dramas, comedies, or horrors.

It is an exciting movie with a suspenseful plot and all that but if you're looking for a ''glimpse into the life of a real firefighting squad,'' this is not the movie for you.
