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

Very intense homage to firefighters...
1 November 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 11/01/2001 - 8 out of 10(Dir-Yoonho Yang, Yun Ho Yang): Very intense homage to firefighters and their abilities to continue fighting for people first, then they battle the fires. Very much like many American-made action movies and very timely considering the recent September 11th disaster because it really makes the fire-fighters shine despite the difficult circumstances with facing their life's end around every corner. If you're looking for any bit of romance, or quiet drama this is not the movie for you. It starts and ends with one jaw-dropping scene after another. Not unlike the Ron Howard film about firefighting, the fire seems to have a character of it's own but these fires are just plain mean!! Side-story involving the arsonist gives you much greater insight into the character than most action movies and actually makes you feel for him (just a little.) Of course, when he's gone you're glad he's gone because you know your heart will stop pounding and you can relax and go on with your normal(everyday- non fireman) life. This movie needs to be watched, let's do it!!
