A Mixed Bag
25 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made-for-TV (USA Network) film follows a group of Las Vegas hotel guests trying to escape a raging fire on the floors below. Among them is a TV cameraman who broadcasts a live feed to his station, as bar patrons around town watch the action -- cheering as though it's just the latest episode of a 'reality' TV series.

This movie is a mixed bag. At its best, you'll see some amazingly realistic footage of what it's like to be trapped in a fire. Especially gripping are the scenes captured by the cameraman (in a jumpy 'Blair Witch' hand-held style). Other scenes are intense to the extreme and downright scary -- with convincing special effects.

Unfortunately, though, the plot has major flaws and often reverts to a storyline that's typical of the average run-of-the-mill 'disaster film'. Credibility is frequently lost, and the ending is a joke.
