Ladder 49

John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix star in this heroic firefighting drama. Phoenix is a hotshot (sorry) young firefighter trapped in a deadly blaze. Through flashback, we learn how he became a flame jockey and how he was mentored by a wise old veteran (Travolta). The movie runs through all the usual clichés, but the acting is sincere. 105 minutes
