The fire sequences are indeed thrilling, but the oxygen just gets sucked out of the film between the action sequences

I probably would be less troubled if it weren't so effective; filmmakers who can drive audience responses this well should be able to find more depth in the material.

Ladder 49 was not made for those who find comfort in the high brow works of P. T. Anderson and Robert Altman.

Ladder 49 is a action-packed film. Joacquin Phoenix is going to break your heart.

Ladder 49 is melodramatic, with the action driving the characters rather than the other way around. Then again, that's probably how firefighters feel about their lives.

It's only when the film's realistic scenes of buildings on fire roar across the screen that 'Ladder 49' comes to life.

It's a darn shame this Ladder 49 DVD didn't come with a copy of Enya's Memory of the Trees and a box of Lucky Charms.
