Reviews
Mine: Fun, if overwrought. Glenn, Sutherland, and DeNiro add fun. Great effects with the fire.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two brothers whose father died fighting a fire now spend their time on the force battling each other. A hoary B-movie-type script fired up by square-jawed conviction, and stunning special effects; also the first film to ever explore a sheer fascination with fire. The gifted Leigh fails miserably playing a normal young woman. Footage added for network TV showings. Super 35.
