    The Movie: Backdraft is simply put - awesome. It shows the dangers of being a firefighter and how thankful we are to them. On the flip side, sprinkle in a little Hollywood formula plot that rounds the movie out and you've got a very entertaining movie. 4K Picture Quality: There are some scenes that look good; colors pop and HDR really makes them pop even more. Then there are some scenes that remind you that you're watching a 28 year old film. Audio Quality: Good for what it does. During scenes where they're in a burning building, it makes tolerable use of the surrounds. Bass is OKAY. Dialogue for the most part is clear, but some lines spoken sound a little muffled.

    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.

    This is a great movie from start to finish. The story is awesome and the actors do a fantastic job. DeNiro And Russell are at their finest in this film. Baldwin and Russell lose their firefighting father in a fire in the beginning. Russell follows in his footsteps immediately and Baldwin does too later in his life. Someone is setting fires and killing people on purpose with backdrafts. Deniro and Baldwin are on the case trying to figure out who is doing it. You want to think all signs point to Russell's character but is it? This is a great movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat with great acting and better plot. The sound and picture are superb on blu-ray. This movie was Oscar-worthy for sure.

    A fire bug story before CG special effects

    Ron Howard said he wanted to do a movie about the many mysteries of fire and how it lingers waiting to kill. His dilemma was CG at the time was fake looking. After much experimenting, talking to the best fire experts of the time he finally finds a way where he can use real fire in the movie for maximum effect and realness. To say the least, fire is one of the main characters in the movie besides Russell, De Niro, Donald Sutherland and a very young William Baldwin.

    This is one of my favorite movies. Kurt Russell and especially Robert DeNiro are excellent in thi story of the brave men who fight fires. Although I have owned the blu ray for many years, I bough the 4K version. It’s like seeing the film for the first time. The quality of the print is fantastic!

    Ron Howard's drama is quite good. A top notch cast of actors do a fine job, and the amazing fire scenes, done before a lot of CGI was used are spectacular. I got a little tired of the off/on relationship between the brothers, but it's part of the film elements. See for the amazing fire scenes and the drama they present. Good film, but not one I can overly praise.

    I still remember the first time I saw this movie, when I was a kid. This made me think more about how incredible fire is. Im surprised this concept hadnt really been done before. But, leave it to Ron Howard to kill it!

    Happy to see the 4K release. A film I’ve always loved. Having it updated with improved audio and video was long awaited. The video transfer is decent. On my home theater system, the audio is overwhelming.

    As the years go by, the story doesn’t hold up as well but I love the movie . DTS:X is strong and great for home theater . Very immersive . HDR is strong with 80’s lighting.

    The movie with Kurt Russell was great! I upgraded from a standard dvd to blu-ray and was pleased with the outcome! The movie looks and sounds great! Has DTS 5.1 audio on blu-ray and came with a standard dvd, all for under $8.00 on sale! Can't beat it to add to your collection!
