The numbers of the fire companies are all "dead" numbers in the Chicago Fire Department. Engine 17, Truck 46, Engine 24, Truck 6 (now back in service, as of March 2004), and Engine 33 (referred to, not actually seen in the movie), are all out of service. The Chicago Fire Department has twenty-four battalions. Battalion 25 was created for the movie. See more »

This work features some great, entertaining and witty banter by Kurt Russell, the hot dog firefighter, willing to risk it all for the people of his city. Okay, maybe that was a little overstated, but it's still accurate.
I like this movie at least as well as the first couple of Lethal Weapon movies. When there's action, it's awesome; when there's witty repartee, it's witty; and when there's drama, it's dramatic. The performances here are top notch, and the plot is intriguing, holding your attention throughout.
Hats off to the Cowboys! Ron Howard's direction is inspired, the effects are awesome, and the performances are legendary.
I was nothing, if not entertained.
It rates an 8.8/10 from...
