It has been a few years since I last viewed this film and although some of the vehicles and tech used in this film make it a little dated (1991), this film is still a tour de force of acting, writing, directing, fire effects, and all else involved. My fiance had never seen it, she was completely engrossed and loved every minute.
By far the best version of this movie available. Picture quality was really good colors popped and details really stood out, such as skin textures, fire trucks and names on equipment really stood out. The new dtsx soundtrack was awesome if you have a avr that does 7.2.4 you will enjoy this. The fire scenes were the firefighters are inside the buildings was awesome sounding. Sounds came from from all directions and overhead, one of the best dtsx soundtracks I've heard yet. Though I've seen this movie on satellite DVD cable I've never bought a copy till the 4k dtsx version. Glad I now have it in my collection.
great movie shows the dangers and struggles of firefighters shows the tolls that this profession takes on people performing this line of dangerous work not only physically straining but also mentally strenuous
This is a great movie which includes how two brothers work together to save lives I love this movie my boyfriend and I watched it together years ago now my husband and I bought it on DVD blue ray love it.

A classic movie centered around a family with multiple generations in the fire service. One is an established Captain who has earned the respect of the men under him , while his younger brother decides to join up and realizes it will take alot to measure up to his brother and meet his standards. This UHD 4K release is a huge step up from the original Bluray release in terms of sound and visual quality. Anybody who enjoys this movie should definately consider an upgrade if you can do 4K.
