4.0 out of 5 stars Very good... March 13 2001
By Peter
Format:VHS Tape
...Firestorm: Blazing Inferno is worth its price. The footage is first person, similar to a newsreporter. It's independently filmed...basically someone with a video camera but at least he kept the camera steady and microphone off. There is no "on scene" narration or sound but there is a general voiceover of what the footage shows. Such as, "The intense winds force the firefighters to retreat to the coast to make their stand. They try to save this building for an hour but abandon the effort when they run out of water and the roof catches fire." An electric guitar music clip plays in the background but fortunately it isn't annoying Heavy Metal or Hard Rock.
The first tape is about the 1993 in Southern California. The footage shows the fire spreading all the way to the coast and talks about its day-to-day progress like a newsreel. It's 27 minutes long.
The second tape focuses on structure fire clips in progress across America and another Southern CA wildfire. This tape is 23 minutes long.
All tapes are edited and shows water being poured on the fire for a few minutes and then the fire as extinguished before moving to the next clip.
Firestorm doesn't show fire fighting procedures, equipment, tactics, battleplan, or interviews with the firefighters and public. It does show the vehicles briefly (but not closeups). Essentially, it's a cameraman who hitched a ride on a firetruck, got off, and filmed from hotspot to hotspot.
Firestorm does convey the sense of power and awe seeing a wildfire. Highly recommended for the low price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Howie Long Needs to Stick to Football Feb. 22 2001
Format:VHS Tape
FIRESTORM is Howie Long's first film where he is the Marquee star and, and so far the only one. Which may be a good thing. The buff, square-jawed ex-football player and FOX NFL commentator should DEFINITELY stick to bantering with Terry Bradshaw and the rest of his FOX co-workers on Sunday afternoons. Perhaps I was expecting too much of this movie--after all, it is an action flick--but Long only seems to wear one facial expression throughout the movie, and he reads his dialogue like he's watching cue cards off camera. The rest of the cast is little better. Scott Glenn appears in every shot to be thinking "How did I get roped into making this movie?" Suzy Amis' character is pure cliche as the developing romantic interest for Long's character. The only joy to watch is William Forsythe, who seems to be the only one who really seems to enjoy playing his role. He plays bad guys very well--You may remember him as Al Capone during the short-lived syndicated revival of "The Untouchables" TV show a few years ago (Or Maybe not). Of course, the forest fire special effects are spectacular, and they may be the only reason I give the movie two stars instead of one. There's one question that puzzles me: How did two bird's eggs survive intact in an unpadded, unsealed metal case through A) a motorcycle ride over a rough forest floor B) a parachute jump into a river and C) immersion in a forest lake?

4.0 out of 5 stars HEROIC HOWIE March 5 2004
Format:DVD
Sports stars turned actors have never been serious threats at the Academy awards, and big Howie Long is certainly no exception. However, with his buff bod, icy blue eyes and a hint of malevolent humor, he acquits himself quite nicely in this blazing adventure. He plays the news fire chief of the Smoke Jumpers when buddy Scott Glenn is injured in a frightening opening rescue scene. The pyrotechnics in this movie are awesome and heat up the screen (ha ha). Suzy Amis is fun as the ornithologist who just happens to walk into the thick of things; William Forsythe is painfully effective as the cold-hearted killer who offs his prison escapee buddies so he can get all of his 37,000,000 dollars! There are some mind-blowing fire scenes and the firestorm itself is awesome.
A great kickbutt type of movie, and Howie's the man!!!

I admit, I only watched this movie for one reason. That reason is the incredibly talented and undeniably adorable Barry Pepper. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MOVIE KICKED!
I am a pyromaniac and that might explain why i like this movie but it also had tight fight scenes with lots of violence.
