Corny? Yes. Well acted? Also Yes. Fun and memorable with excellent fire effects? Absolutely.

Loved this film growing up. It's aged fairly well and if you're looking for a good old action packed 90's yarn then look no further. Plus Kurt Russell's in it and he's cool.

a pretty damn good flick if only for the special effects. But the story actually makes you care about these people. A great popcorn flick.

Backdraft is the best firefighter movie. It's a classic in many ways, but I don't feel that it holds up beyond average in terms of film.
