Not Great But I've Seen Worse
15 May 2019 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Haven't seen the original 1991 film, but from what I've read this one does not compare well with it. Some of the actors, such as Donald Sutherland and William Baldwin, do return here.

Joe Anderson stars as Sean McCaffrey, the hard-boiled, loner, and dedicated arson investigator, whose father (Kurt Russell) was the lead actor in the 1991 movie. He will be reluctantly partnered with the young Maggie Rening (Alisha Bailey).

Together, they will investigate a blast at a townhouse on Halloween night that killed 5 youngsters. Although the politicians want the case to be closed as an accident, Sean and Maggie will quickly realize that the explosion was meant to happen. Their investigation will lead them to a possible case of nefarious international arms sales.

Look for scientific jargon that will make your head spin, some plot elements that are ridiculous but some good action scenes as well. and some brief but gruesome scenes of charred human bodies. Also, look for a terrific performance by Sutherland, who has a rather small but important role as a deranged and jailed arsonist.

All in all, this is not a great film but, in my opinion, it's watchable and I certainly have seen worse movies.
