Better than Backdraft
11 April 2001 | by treat-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first aired and have wanted to see it again but every time the TV Guide says it is showing they end up showing the movie of the same title with Gene Hackman. It is also a good movie but this is the one I want to see. It is mainly about firefighters and was one of the best films I have ever had the pleasure of watching. I would take it 2 to 1 over "Backdraft" and that was an excellent movie.

"Uncommon Valor" is a story of bravery, sacrifice, and compassion that is unsurpassed. See it if you can!!
