I like the scene in the Towerning Inferno where two fire officers are watching two fire balls fall down an elevator shaft and one looks at the other with all the emotion one might have after making out a shopping list says, "those are two of ours."

I've heard that John Travolta has been to a couple of Lewisville's stations prior to making the film and even called a couple of Lewisville's firefighter's up to get advice on what to do in the film... but thats what I've heard...
anyone seen 15 minutes with Robert De Niro? Its supposed to deal something with arsonists I think..The Box. You opened it. We Came...

There's a few firefighters that show ball$ and pride in their posts here. I wouldn't mind buying drinks for you guys. If ever in KC, look me up. Drinks are on me. I'm sure you know who you are, have some pride.

Not a firefighting movie but I recently saw"The Guardian"where Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher are playing like they're in the Coast Guard.
It seemed to take a few scenes from "Top Gun" like where Kutcher was asking if the guy who had all them records was still alive and they'd best tell him they were about to be broken.
I think the funniest scene had to have been paid for by Bruce Willis where Costner uses his foot on his face to push Kutcher back into the pool for more "training".
The dumbest scene came when Kutcher was being lowered through masts and rigging to save a fishing boat crew.
The most I know about Alaskan fishing and helo rescues comes from watching Discovery Channel but I doubt any helo pilot would find it necessary to lower his rescue swimmer through entanglement hazards like that.Find a clear spot of deck there,Ell-Tee!
Then,when Kutcher and Costner were getting off the boat and they're climbing across netting with all their gear just ready to get caught up in it.
I was thinking that I always hated getting tangled up in search training sessions,and I sure wouldn't want to get hung up on a sinking boat that way.
It wasn't a bad movie.Besides,it was only the first instance I've seen where Ashton Kutcher wasn't being "Kelso" like he did in "Texas Rangers".

I can't stand Kevin Costner. Possibly the biggest pant load in hollywood next to Tom Cruise and K????? Reeves (by the way, are those two dating yet? It's only a matter of time before they both come out of the closet). Does anybody buy Costner in any role he plays?!?I am a complacent liability to the fire service

I liked Kevin Costner in the baseball movie, For Love of the Game. Thats about it.
Nice deflection of the reality of the thread though Chicago. Backdraft was the apex in the city of Chicago's existence. I would be defensive too.
