Let's weigh the pros and cons, shall we?
29 August 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

REASONS NOT TO WATCH THIS MOVIE:

1) Ray Milland looks even more embarrassed here than in THE THING WITH TWO HEADS.

2) The captain of this hard-working team of oil firefighters puts a ban on anyone smoking while battling one particular blaze, then asks for a cigarette.

3) The American actors are all dubbed.

4) The cinematography here is as muddy, murky and (un)stomachable as a McDonald's coffee.

5) For a movie about people with such a unique and dangerous line of work, this is about as exciting as watching a houseplant grow.

REASONS TO WATCH THIS MOVIE: ...well, if you're THAT much of a bad movie lover...
