    Entertainment Weekly

    Backdraft has some of the raw filmmaking excitement that has been missing from Howard's recent work.

    February 05, 2008

    Visually, pic often is exhilarating, but it's shapeless and dragged down by corny, melodramatic characters and situations.

    Chicago Reader
    February 05, 2008

    Visually speaking, the film does pretty well with fire-as-spectacle, less well with everything else (Howard tends to trot out fuzzy-toned Spielbergian backlighting on any pretext).

    The fire sequences are stunning, and the build-up to them, complete with blaring sirens and bellowed conversations, has an aggressive immediacy.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    The spectacular fire sequences, which must have been hellish to film, are powerfully enveloping on screen, thanks especially to the eerie effect of the title.

    Washington Post

    Backdraft is sure to do for fire what The Poseidon Adventure did for water.

    ...a top-notch thriller trapped within a poorly-paced and needlessly bloated piece of work...
    September 10, 2015

    Ron Howard's film is one of smoke-eaters, crispers, and torches... and it bestows a renewed respect on a profession all too often taken for granted.

    Antagony & Ecstasy
    July 26, 2014

    Absolutely fantastic setpieces strung along an absolutely dimwitted script.

    Common Sense Media
    September 23, 2010

    Ron Howard popcorn-muncher is sappy, not smokin'.
    January 16, 2009

    Backdraft may not be a very good movie, but it sure is great entertainment.
