The ugliest comedy I have ever seen. 'Nuff said!
This is easily one of the best films about World War II that I've ever watched and I enjoy Charlton Heston as an actor. Henry Fonda does well in this film as well and is a true patriotic film that touched me when I first saw it when I was 12 back in the day. It's arguably the best World War II film that I watched before films like Saving Private Ryan.
Quite entertaining and creepy!
I grew up watching Backdraft since I was younger and I loved it ever since I saw it on TV. When this was announced, I was kind of excited since I wanted to know what would happen almost 30 years after the original. I was wise enough not to buy the film on DVD or Blu-Ray. I watched it for free and I was angered beyond recognition, because it was slow, boring and tedious. What was arguably an even bigger insult is that Brian (William Baldwin's character) dies at the end. A lot of the new characters don't serve a purpose and honestly if you want to see a true sequel to Backdraft, watch Chicago Fire since that has nods to the film and had guest appearances by supporting actors who appeared in the original film. I am never watching this film again EVER! This deserves all the hate it gets. I know Backdraft isn't realistic, but it's entertaining and iconic. Nothing can touch the legacy of the 1991 classic. Again, I won't watch this again for as long as I live. Disregard this pile of smoldering junk and just watch the original film.
