The "Citizen Kane" of brother firefighting movies. William Baldwin has never been better.

I was very disappointed in this movie. It was a rivalry between two brothers, lots of special effects and most disappointing of all so many of the firefighters smoked. The real life firemen I have known, hate smoking because it is the cause of so many fires. In this movie the smoke is still thick and they are lighting up a cigarette. That was just one of many things I did not like. I just couldn't get into this movie at all.

I forgot how great this movie is. A bit of everything comedy, drama, tears, romance, and most of a mystery. Good on Ron Howard for coming up with new scripts that are interesting.

An action packed thriller!

This movie has it all:

-Great actors
-A cat and mouse game to catch a deadly arsonist
-The maze of municipal politics, graft, and corruption
-A love story!
-A man's struggle to find his place in the world.
-Sibling rivalry in a very incendiary environment....
-And an excellent and inspiring music track by Bruce Hornsby!
