"I think Joe Lando (DQMW, Higher Ground) did a great job as the Chief Engineer trying to warn the (evil) Fire Chief about the gas fumes running under the city of Millwood that was highly combustible and setting businesses on fire. I liked that he was a smart man who was respected by the Mayor,his co-workers,and other firemen and that they did not treat him like he was a crazy person. (Not to mention he is really "hot" in this movie which fueled the fire so-to-speak for me.) Anyway, we get small amounts of background of the trouble Scott Daniels had with a previous job working for NASA from conversations, but we can tell he has always been a good guy. The "friendship" between Scott and Kenny Burrows is a plus throughout this movie. They supply some of the humor so it isn't all gloom and doom. The plot of this movie came off well in my opinion, and it has a happy ending. Who could ask for more from a movie made for television?"

"Hampered by sophomoric special effects, a limp script and an uninspired cast, COMBUSTION is a disappointment. Joe Lando (Dr. Quinn) stars as a city engineer who believes deadly gases are somehow being released into the city's underground sewer system, resulting in deadly fires and deaths. Greeted with skepticism by the egotistical fire chief (Michael Gregory, overacting shamefully), Lando must convince the mayor and everyone that he is right. Of course, a greedy oil baron (Michael Gross, looking woefully embarrassed) is the one responsible for the gas releases, but he doesn't want Lando to uncover this. A subplot involves Lando's troubled marriage to Gabrielle Carteris and their son's involvement with the daughter of Lando's old flame, who is now a newscaster(Susan Walters). Directed with little regard for common sense or pacing, COMBUSTION fizzles instead of sizzles."
It's a little better then okay.

"This movie is about a family man who tries to save a town from these mysterious fires. The movie has a good acting but not as good writing. If you are one of those people who likes a little mystery and family strife in a movie you will like this."
