Following his turn as John Travolta's henchman in John Woo's "Broken Arrow," Hollywood tried to turn former NFL great Howie Long into an honest-to-goodness action hero with this formulaic-but-fun butt kicker. In "Firestorm," Howie's a Wyoming 'smokejumper' who has to battle a raging forest fire and a gang of escaped convicts (who set the fire in order to cover up their jailbreak). This enjoyable but instantly forgettable popcorn flick tanked at the box office and took Howie's movie career down with it, but William Forsythe is great as the sleazy bad guy and the fire scenes are suitably thrilling. Think "Backdraft" in the woods.

Very good action movie and parts of it are similar to the 19 forest firefighters who died a couple weeks ago in Arizona. You see the deployment of the fire resistant tents that they used.

Very good story with fine acting. Howie Long can act! Firefighting is always dangerous and this crew shows how to do it right. A must see for anyone who loves firefighters!

PERFECTLY ADEQUATE FILM
Inspector Gadget | On the trail of Doctor Claw | 07/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found nothing wrong with Howie Long's performance. There was not one point where I didn't believe him to be a smoke-jumper or a decent actor. William Forsythe was also pretty cool as the villain. If you like him in Out for Justice you will like him in this movie.My only grouch is that the movie only runs at 88 minutes. It should have been way longer. More plot and more fire would have a made a totally ace movie. For a film called Firestorm there is a big lack of fire in it.The DVD is in fantastic Dolby 5.1 and is letterboxed at 2.35:1."
Unparalleled realism, Howie's hygiene is beyond reproach
Gunny Sack | Missoula, Montana | 06/10/2006

"As a real-life wildland firefighter I am here to tell you that this movie is perfection and grace. The writers themselves must have eaten smoke in some former life. Indeed they nailed every aspect of wildland firefighting. From DOC crews who are chained to their bus while traveling to the fire and released with a potential deadly weapon in a camouflage ridden forest---to Howie's masterful portrayal of a smokejumper with a heart and the childlike demeanor of an alcoholic scoutmaster, this film is pure gold. If one flaw should be cited, it is, that the incendiary, helicopter launched, ping pong ball machine failed to explode with enough devastating force! Firefighters know that ping pong balls do not make a grenade sized explosions, but one more akin to a bunker buster launched from an F16. The chainsaw scene took my breath away, Howie's acting was certainly slighted by a lack of an academy nomination. The fire at the movie's end was the first true-to-life portrayal of a wildland fire since the Lions Gate film 'Superfire'. It is comforting to know that someone realizes wildland fires travel at speeds exceeding 125 miles per hour and rip mature pine trees out by their roots hurling them a quarter mile or more. Thank you Howie, you're the man!"

"THIS IS A ACTION PACKED MOVIE WITH PLENTY OF ACTION AND GOOD ACTING IT SEEMS [...]. I CARE ABOUT PLOT IT'S GOT IT , ACTION IT'S GOT IT AND OVERALL PLOT. SOME MOVIES HOLD YOUR ATTENTION EVEN IF THE PLOT IS WEAK BECAUSE OF SOMETHING THAT GRABS YOU. [...] THIS COULD HAVE EASY BEEN A 4 STAR. THAT'S WHAT'S WRONG WITH A SITE THAT NO ONE WATCHES.[...]. AGAING GREAT MOVIE. IT'S VERY EASY TO FIND ME!!! ANY TIME"
