The studio designed special nozzles for the fires. There was an outer ring nozzle that shot out the flames and an inner one that shot out a mixture of water and India ink to simulate oil. This can be seen in how easily the "oil" is wiped off the actor's faces. See more »

[referring to the fact that Greg brings a girl to a different fire]
What did you use for openers this time, the old headache gag? Why, you poor man, perhaps if I rubbed your neck?
True - every word, true. But it works.
Can't say I blame you. A fellow as ugly as you are probably couldn't get to first base without a fire.

I read the review of this movie and was astounded to find someone felt this was the original Armageddon movie. While there is one similarity, in that they both involved the so named "Hell Fighters", the other movie is a cheap knock off of some idea to put these guys in space.
This movie was so far above the Bruce Willis movie. If you are able to watch this movie and not feel the heat of the job you are not watching close enough. John Wayne and fact the whole cast play this movie with such a realistic feel you can't help but get into. No cut on Mr. Willis, but that was such a fluffy, far-fetched movie, you could not really believe it for a moment.
Watch this movie if you want to see the lives of people who truly live on the edge of danger.
