Good movie
15 October 2005 | by snuffy-15See all my reviews

Uncommon Valor takes us through a day in the life of a firefighting unit in Salt Lake City, Utah. Headed by Batallion Chief Tom Riordan (Mitchell Ryan), the unit handles a series of emergencies culminating with their fighting a raging conflagration at County General Hospital. The hospital's head administrator, Dr. Margaret Houghton (Barbara Parkins) and her staff work to move patients to safety. The question is, who started the fire in the hospital and how?

Luckily, I was able to tape this movie and found out later that the reason it has never been shown since, is that it was the pilot for an unsold weekly TV series. It's a shame that it didn't pan out because I thought the pilot was quite good.

Other cast members were Ben Murphy, Belinda Montgomery, Gregory Sierra, and guest, Norman Fell.
