One breath of oxygen and it explodes in a deadly rage., Silently behind a door, it waits., In that instant it can create a hero... or cover a secret.

[Howard] gives the fire fighting scenes a satisfying feel of terror. But the psychological portraits of the fire fighters and the arson mystery that dominate the film are flimsy, like an art student's dutifully crafted reproductions of the great masters.

Although the movie is unrealistic in its depiction of fircfighting, it's a stunning piece of cinematic storytelling.

Until Backdraft, no one had mastered the effects necessary to show what it's like inside a burning building. Now someone has.
