Backdraft (1991)

Rating: ***
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Kurt Russell, William Baldwin, Scott Glenn, Robert De Niro, Donald Sutherland, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rebecca DeMornay

A definite macho flick starring Kurt Russell, William Baldwin, and Scott Glenn as Chicago firefighters. When a series of carefully planned arsons occurs, fire expert Robert De Niro is called on the scene and an incarcerated pyromaniac psychopath (Donald Sutherland) offers clues and insights as to who might be involved and why. Good performances and good effects sequences, but I really wanted to see more things burning and blowing up! But that's just me, I suppose.
