    Synopsis


    Ladder 49
    An everyday hero recalls his life as he's forced to look death in the eye in this adventure drama. Jack Morrison (Joaquin Phoenix) is a young firefighter who is a member of Ladder Company 49, led by Capt. Kennedy (John Travolta), a tough but compassionate man who looks upon his fellow firefighters as a family. While battling a blaze, Morrison finds himself trapped inside a burning building, and as Kennedy and his men try to find a way to rescue him, Morrison looks back on his life and how he came to choose such a dangerous career. Ladder 49 also features Jacinda Barrett and Brooke Hamlin as, respectively, Morrison's wife and daughter. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Excellent for high def

      Right from the first scene, the soundfield is fully immersive. Flames roar in the rears, various discrete effects are directed to all channels, and the tonal clarity of the mix is superb. At even a decent volume, I could detect the sound of a fire hose being turned on, or the echo of a fireman's feet racing up a flight of stairs -- all amid a cacophony of sound that, on a lesser mix, would have decimated any hint of subtlety This is what hi/def audio provides. Great demo material, the film put me into the "fire" It is a film my wife enjoyed as well!!!

      Ok, so it is another firefighter story where the rookie becomes a seasoned firefighter. What makes it worth watching, is the relationship between John Travolta and Loaquin Phoenix.
