Burn full movie review - An honest look at life in the FD
A no BS look at one year in a firehouse. This was done at Station 50 in Detroit, a fire department that is troubled more than most major metropolitan departments, but is dealing with the same issues many departments around the nation struggle with.
The new Fire Commissioner comes off as abrasive and unwilling to work with the members of the department but it becomes apparent in one scene that at least some of the personnel/officers aren't taking an ownership stake mentality in a department that desperately needs it. According to cast members attending the film at the 11/29/12 showing in Austin, TX the staffing is down to 150 personnel. Detroit FD is definitely in need of help.
If this movie is presented closer to home, I drove over an hour to see it, I'll see it again! If you know someone in the fire service or are interested in the fire service YOU SHOULD SEE THIS FILM!! This is the real deal and it's the most honest representation of life in the service I've seen portrayed BAR NONE!
