"You go. We go." - Lt. Steven McCaffrey, Backdraft (1991)

Universal Pictures, rated R, 137 minutes.

Directed By: Ron Howard


Kurt Russell - Lt. Steven 'Bull' McCaffrey

William Baldwin - Brian McCaffrey

Robert De Niro - Donald 'Shadow' Rimgale

Donald Southerland - Ronald Bartel

Jennifer Jason Leigh - Jennifer Vaitkus

Scott Glenn - John 'Axe' Adcox

Rebecca De Morney - Helen McCaffrey

Jason Gedrick - Tim Krizminski

J.T. Walsh - Alderman Marty Swayzak

Domestic Box Office Gross: $77,868,585

Synopsis: An arsonist is on the loose and two fire-fighting brothers must put differences aside and work together to try and catch him.

Fact: Don Rimgale is actually a real fire investigator who has a cameo in the movie.

Trivia: Most of the soundtrack was used in the 1993 version of "Iron Chef".

Movie Mistake: Tim is wearing his mask when checking rooms with Steve. When they walk down the corridor the mask is no longer on nor visible.

My Take: Not Ron Howard's best film by a long-shot, but the "Let me go Bull."-"You go. We go." is one of the best quotable scenes ever. Sometimes it's all about the quotes!

      I agree Andy, it did have some very moving scenes. Supercibor, don't expect too much out of it.

      You are right, it's not the best film but it has some powerful moments and memorable scenes. The funeral parade with the stunning soundtrack is one of those moments which oozes spine tingling, memorable power.
