Show preview

(1991) Directed by Ron Howard. Firefighting brothers Stephen (Kurt Russell) and Brian McCaffrey (William Baldwin) carry their lifelong sibling rivalry into their work. Stephen is convinced that Brian hasn't got what it takes to remain in the fire department. Brian is transferred to a "safe" assignment, assisting arson investigator Donald Rimgale (Robert DeNiro), who is trying to make sense of a series of fires involving an oxygen-induced ball of fire called a backdraft. The investigation reveals a link between corrupt alderman Martin Swayzak (J. T. Walsh) and imprisoned pyromaniac Ronald Bartel (Donald Sutherland). The trail of evidence leads Brian to suspect that his brother Stephen, a much-decorated hero, maybe the "inside" man setting up the arsons. [Drama | Action | Thriller]
