A group of "smokejumpers", or firefighters who jump out of planes and into the middle of forest fires, are called to the scene of a crime - a forest fire set by a group of escaping convicts who were sent into the woods to do community service. A nearby birdwatcher trying to escape from the fire winds up a hostage. Then you have your typical movie hero, a big, beefy firefighter who's in charge of the other smokejumpers. And there's a subplot about a smokejumper whose career was ended when he injured his leg helping to save a little girl from a fire.
The acting was, for the most part, well done, and the rather silly ending fit wrong with the serious premise of the movie, but other than that, it was a wonderful film.
