    I think "Backdraft" is the movie that every fire fighter says in technically incorrect, yet, knows every line of dialogue. When it came out, I didn't know a thing about fire fighting. That movie got me excited about the field. So even if its not all exactly right, it did help get me motivated to join the fire service. If a sequal comes out, I'll go see it gladly. I have the soundtrack and I watch the beginning of "Iron Chef" just to hear the theme.

    Stay safe.

      It's an awesome movie....for one liners.
      The soundtrack is good, but the movie ******es me off when I watch it. Especially the part where he cracks open the bottle in his day room. Great "special" effects too. I'm sure I would have liked it a lot more if I wasn't a firefighter. Just my two cents. Don't get mad at me, you asked.
      Take care, stay safe, & stay low!

        On the subject of the Backdraft soundtrack. One night while living in the dorm at college, I happened to fall asleep with that CD going. Low and behold, about 3:30 in the morning the fire alarm in our building went off. It was a false alarm, but I thought the coincidence was interesting.

            Hey Everybody,

            I just moved to Albuquerque and haven't been online in a month or so. I was really surprised at how many of you have posted what you think to one of my topics. I just wanted to thank you all and tell you that I feel like a part of the forums now.
            Thanks for the kidding around and the fun. Unlike a lot of the topics posted on these forums, nobody got their toes stepped on, nobody got mad.
            Thanks everybody, keep posting, and stay safe!

              sorry to bump this from the graveyard, but I just rented this movie again. Is Kurt Russel Cast 2X in this movie?? First as the dad who dies when he hits the gas main and second as one of the brothers?

                Good eye. Yes, he also plays the dad in the opening scene, but with a mustache.

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
