Storyline

There are over 20,000 wildfires in a typical year; we follow crews to a few of them. First, we see the preseason physical training and a prescribed burn, which burns the flammable underbrush before the trees themselves are flammable. But since these burns can't do the whole job, we see how firespotters pinpoint lighting-caused fires that smokejumpers then have to parachute into. In the open wilderness of Idaho, the job is relatively simple. In California, where forests are closer to civilization and the chaparral forests are much more flammable, access to the fire is easier, but fighting it is harder. And in Australia, where the forests are full of eucalyptus and tea, the flammability is compounded by the acrid smoke. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The first IMAX film I have ever seen, ho, hum...
19 July 1999 | by (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada) – See all my reviews

My friends told me that I might get disoriented because the screen is so big. I did not. The movie was boring. Before the film began, images on the screen advertized that the frame-rate of IMAX movies are higher ... I didn't see any difference. The fire was not spectacular enough. This movie was more about the people who put out the fire than the fire itself. The coolest part was when a jeep drove over the camera and broke many twigs in surround sound. This movie was not impressing at all.
