Storyline

Two decades before the story begins, a young girl saves her younger brother from drowning at the hands of their abusive father. The boy watches as his sister and father are consumed by flames triggering within him a psychotic fascination with fire. He brings his new interest in flames to light by burning down the children's ward at the hospital where he was housed. By the time the story begins, the boy has grown into a man and has perfected his arsonist's tendencies. The fire department finds their hands full battling, not only blazes (and Seoul's traffic problems) but a lunatic bent on eliminating those who would stop his fires. Written by Anonymous

Nice fires
14 April 2003 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

excellent cinematography and choreography in the fire sequences. the rest? try to stay awake. watch the hong kong firefighter movie LIFELINE instead. that film had actual characters. this film has mannequins dressed up as characters. worst yet, they throw out the only good thing about this movie -- the notion of firefighters as underappreciated -- and exchange it for a silly Teen Slasher movie. i mean, come on, the only thing missing from the villain is a friggin' hockey mask or a machete.
