    A classic revamped.

    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.

    Kurt Russell and William Baldwin star as two feuding siblings carrying on a heroic family tradition as Chicago firefighters. When a puzzling series of arson attacks is reported, they are forced to set aside their differences to solve the mystery surrounding these explosive crimes. Scott Glenn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rebecca De Mornay, Donald Sutherland and Robert De Niro also star in this critically acclaimed suspense story that features Academy Award-nominated visual effects and sound with some of the most awe-inspiring fire sequences ever filmed.

    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.

    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.

    How could you go wrong with De Niro and Russell?

    A really great action film with an ensemble cast with a great plot. It may be a bit cliche but that doesn't mean its a bad film. I would say its one of Ron Howard's best films behind Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind.

    I never thought I'd buy Backdraft again, but this is another example of an old film given new life on UHD.

    It takes a special person that runs into a building on fire. Firefighters are special.
