This tale of a young fireman and his absolute commitment to the saving of lives (as well as the adrenaline rush of charging into fires) is a mixture we've seen before. Mr. Phoenix and John Travolta deliver perfectly fine performances, and the fires are appropriately menacing, but it lacks...dare I say, heat?
Give it a C+.
