Audience Reviews for Point of Origin (In the Heat of Fire)

[font=Times New Roman][color=yellow][b][size=2]Newton Thomas Sigel -- acclaimed cinematographer of classics like [i]Usual Suspects [/i]and [i]Apt Pupil – [/i]takes a stab at directing with this made-for-TV drama about arson investigators searching for the arsonist responsible for the most damage in Southern California’s history. His attempt is successful. With his use of nearly every camera trick in the book and awkward angles, he adds more suspense to this well written film [font=Times New Roman][size=2]which[/size] [size=2]takes an interesting plot twist that makes me question its use of the term “based on a true story.” Ray Liotta and John Leguazamo contribute great performances that help make this a great film.[/size][/font][/size][/b][/color][/font] [font=Times New Roman][font=Times New Roman][size=2][color=yellow][b]***[/b][/color][/size][/font][/font]
