Terrible movie.
8 December 2005 | by dbltrackSee all my reviews

Not a good movie. At all. Extraordinarily unrealistic...even for a movie. The teenagers stumble out of the ravaged forest looking like they spent then night at a Holiday Inn, and then messed up their hair and put a little dirt on their faces. The firefighters, dead and alive, are in their personal fire shelters upside down...lying on their backs instead of huddled face down underneath the shelter...they're not sleeping bags! jeez. someone didn't do their research. And well in short...the movie was ridiculous. The story of real smokejumpers is pretty dramatic stuff. It's a shame this movie didn't do it justice at all. Really, really cheap attempt at drama.
