Burn (I) (2012)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
This documentary was incredibly well done!
The footage was amazing- if you wanna see a fire from a firefighters perspective, with no holds barred action, then this is for you!
Being non American, I know literally nothing about Detroit. I had heard via the news that they were in a financial mess, so this was a real eye opener. A sad state of affairs when essential services such as fire and police have no money to perform their job.
No money for PPE, equipment and truck repairs is a sad, sad state of affairs that everyone needs to see to believe and then make an issue out of.
It'd be great to see a follow up in a year or so to see the difference....
If this movie is presented closer to home, I drove over an hour to see it, I'll see it again! If you know someone in the fire service or are interested in the fire service YOU SHOULD SEE THIS FILM!! This is the real deal and it's the most honest representation of life in the service I've seen portrayed BAR NONE!
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.
Who doesn't want to see some of the best real fire department action fit for the big screen? This is no made-for-television drama with connived Backdraft fire scenes and cheese-ball situations. No, in Burn you get to be in a place where the drama is actually something that could be going on right down your street. And if you live in Detroit, it is. Don't forget to pay attention to the social subtleties spread throughout this move, which are portrayed in an objective, in your face way allowing you to take away from it what you will.
If you have a chance to go see this film, don't hesitate. It's worth every penny for the ticket and every mile of the drive to the theater.
