Point of Origin (In the Heat of Fire) Reviews

    Tv movie all the way but actually a good watch. Ray Liotta is brillant as the egotistical arson investigator/arsonist. Based on true story and all the funnier for it. Liotta's fantasy moments of violence and heroism and brillant and show how much of a nutjob the guy actually was.

    Interesting colours, but the plot wasn't so great. & good actors though! Not That bad of a tv-movie.

    Decent performances, some brilliant fire effects and camera shots but a truly poor script. The most obvious whodunnit I've ever seen. The guy wondering around even looks like who it turns out to be! Or does he? - yawn. Pretty pointless story in the end I thought, despite being an apparent true story, surprising to me as HBO is usually a stamp of real quality. Give it a miss.
