Backdraft is my all time favorite fire fighter movie. I remember watching this for the first time as a kid and absolutely loving it. When I heard they were rereleasing it on 4k and in steelbook format I just had to have it. Awesome looking case and perfect for any movie lovers collection.
This is a heavely steelbook for the hottest film from 1991 - with a cast so HOT, this film literally induced my wife's labor for our first child! This demo-worthy disc with HDR10 makes fire more seductive and scary than it's ever appeared before. The DTS:X track is a fully enveloping and room shaking experience. If you didn’t buy this film when it first hit standard 4K - and what's wrong with you - stop reading this review and buy this new piece of home video art!
I was very weary on returning to this film because I didn't know how well it holds up to today's standards but I was shocked and surprised. The story is just as good and the acting is wonderful. The 4k steelbook packaging looks great and the transfer is one of the best of the year. I would highly recommend this film.
Excellent movie. The sound and picture cannot be beat for a 31 year old movie. I already owned the 4K, but made no bones about double dipping for the gorgeous steel book.
I have a problem, it's costly, but it sure looks good on my shelves.
We have been looking for this movie for years, stores, online ext( Yeah it’s that good) On the edge of your seat action movie, action, suspense, mystery, Definitely an excellent stay at home movie night
