My hopes were raised significantly for "Firetrap" when the PM Entertainment logo came up, because PM Entertainment made some really good made-for-video action flicks. Sadly, several seconds later, my hopes were dashed when the names of Richard Pepin and Joseph Merhi (the honchos of PM Entertainment) were not listed in the credits. They were the driving force behind those great action flicks, and without them, what we have here is an extremely mediocre movie at its best, and a painfully predictable and flat movie at its worst. You'll be saying, "I've seen this before" throughout, even if you can't remember where you've seen it before. Dean Cain makes for a one-note hero, and none of the other performances are memorable as well. I guess some of the fire effects aren't bad for a low budget movie, but you can't make a good movie simply with good special effects. If it's raining outside and this is playing on TV, you'd be more entertained going outside and being soaked.
