Yes, this movie is hot! Afterall, it's about fire!! And it wasn't too bad, either. A little bothersome was the fact that Tracey Gold's character Nell went from prison to boss of a Smokejumper unit in just 4 or so years. Possible? Sure, but highly improbable. Also a little bothersome was some of the fire scenes didn't look very real, just superimposed and not very frightening. Oh well, I mean what can ya do with a small budget, put your actors in danger with real fire all around? Nope. Aside from what wasn't so good in this was the story of a woman wrongly imprisoned, reunited with her daughter not seen in many years, who was kept from any communication with her mom. Something that shoulda been explored somehow was the woman who was responsible for the cutoff in communication, who kept mom's letters from the daughter and who obviously didn't mail any that the daughter wrote.
What a horrible woman. Even though it was quite evident it would happen, not a surprise whatsoever, the mom-daughter reunion was touching. You've got a black hole for a heart if that didn't touch you at least a little. All in all this wasn't too bad, a little forced, a little predictable but a little exciting and a little touching, a decent little movie. My grade for this: C+
