Storyline

Millwood City engineer Scott Daniels, moved from Houston, investigates a series of mysterious fires. Scott's and Lourie Harper's only son Jesse, who hated the move or dad's youth home, fakes a fever and invites his new girlfriend Carmen. She's reporter Allison Saunders, Scott's high-school ex's, daughter and finds Jesse unconscious, overtaken by fumes. The sewers are full of dead rats. Cracks appear in various buildings. Gass leaks start explosive fires. Mayor Walker, who only care for politics and publicity, overrules Scott's call for a mass evacuation. Scott and city administration friend Kenny Barrows later discover the link is steam pressure drilling by Talbot's oil exploration firm, but fire chief Patterson is in league with Talbot for years, covers their tracks and undermines Scott's credibility.

Thumbs up for Combustion
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this made for TV movie very entertaining. In fact, I have purchased it on DVD to watch again whenever I want. I agree that this movie is for entertaining purposes and not mind thinking, but with that said, I thought the plot was well established. I liked that Joe Lando's character, Scott Daniels, was an intelligent man and not some "like duh!" man who didn't know how to do his job. I liked the comradely between Scott and his co-worker. And I thought the special effects were good for such a low-budget movie. The movie is somewhat predictable, but still fun to watch. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes "disaster" movies, or is just a fan of one or more of the stars in the cast. I for one watched the movie because it starred Joe Lando, but found myself intrigued by some of the other characters.
