As real as it gets
24 November 2013 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie is as real as it gets, no actors, no scripts, just just real firefighters doing there jobs and saving lives with so much against them. A year following the hero's of the Detroit fire department. It is filmed on the front lines so you are seeing what they see and the danger they put them selves in every day. So hard to watch these firefighters put there lives in danger every day with outdated equipment in a city with so many abandoned homes and buildings for so little pay. It is so sad to see what has happened to this once great American city. I would highly recommend watching this movie, and have a respect for firefighters and what they live with every day.
