Audience Reviews for Firehouse

  • Jan 02, 2017
    To me, this is one of the most amazing firefighter movies of the 1970s and also a good film with extremely important morals about how all men and women are created equal. I really enjoyed the performances and seeing the firefighters in action.

    The firefighting scenes are cheesy in this 1973 movie. The music reminds me of the TV show 'Emergency'. Still, the underlying story about an all white firehouse that gets it's first African American was ok.
