Don't expect "Ladder 49" to become another "Backdraft," the epic firefighter movie from director Ron Howard. "Ladder 49" is about firefighting, but on a personal level. The film is about one man's love for a fire company that changed since 9/11/01. The film also takes a look at the personal lives of the men of Ladder 49.

This movie was probably the best movie I have seen in a few years. My husband even liked this movie and he is in to comedy movies not drama movies. I would highly recommend this movie.

Good movie, definitely go see it. It's a serious one, but something that will please both the girls and the boys in the audience. :)

Hey, remember that girl from the Nickelodeon show "The Secret World of Alex Mack"? She's in there, ha ha! She's grown up from the little ooze-morphing girl she once played on that show!

It was a good movie, but not a great one.

A good look at the guy's life, but not as sensational as Backdraft was with the fire scenes.

Even though it was 2 hours long, it seemed rushed. I didn't feel like I got a good grasp of the character, so it made it hard to identify with him. Maybe it's because of the flashback way of telling the story, you are forced into the situation before you've gotten to know the people involved, and then you're spending the entire movie playing catch-up.
