The Real Deal
6 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the real deal, makes you feel like your on the truck and on the scene. You can't get Hollywood with this, this is the real thing, it's got heat and action all over it. IT's amazing what these guys do , with so little. It truly is a passion that we take for granted.

If you haven't been to a fire scene this will take you to one. Amazing characters that aren't fiction, you will find a kindred spirit with the crew.

It's well done, with great editing, powerful images, this is a must see. If you like Back draft this will be up a definite in your collection. But no Hollywood here, again THE REAL DEAL.
