This movie was incredibly boring and we almost did not finish it. The plot focused on the personal lives of the members of the crew and their families, not on the main event and technical stuff such training, techniques for fighting fires shown in the movie, there was basically no background to the hotshots' job ect.
Would be interesting to learn more about the fire shelters: why if there are claimed to be so successful did not help in this case? To us, as laics, the fire shelters seemed to be ridiculous. Left us thinking that one has to be crazy to believe the fire shelters can be any help. So this only lightened the situation we watched and we were just stunned, why on the Earth would someone use these?
Wish there was more on the tech side in the movie. Also left me wondering what was the aftermath of the event, what were the consequence of the failure of the communication between the hotshots and air units? Makes it more tragic the fact that a human failure caused so many deaths in this case.
The captions for locations and in the end of the movie were so tiny, that you have to get up and get closer to the TV screen to be able to read it.
On the side note: at the end the photos of the hotshots crew members were easily confused with the actors - the first photo was the photo of the actor and then small photos of the real men followed.
Anyway, having different expectations for this movie, we did not enjoy it.

I will always be thankful that my son stopped fighting forest fires before I saw this. Heartbreaking. Acting, cinematography, directing, musical score, all excellent.

I was not sure what to expect, but I was kind of blown away. Good movies are made, here is one. This movie has a heart, it will make you feel something and it has something to show you that you haven't seen.

Well done movie, and a good story.... although way too long! It was a sad ending, of course, as we all remember, but I am glad to learn more about the hotshots... I would rent if you want an entertaining film!
