Ladder 49 (2004)

After saving the life of one of the civilians inside, a firefighter finds himself trapped in a burning warehouse with a broken leg and looks back upon his life.

Above-average drama intended to celebrate the heroics of firefighters, sympathetic but quite sentimental.

Maltin***: "Warm depiction of firemen's lives as brothers in an extended family. Full of white-knuckle sequences depicting daring (but realistic) rescue operations, which cumulatively pay tribute to some of the bravest men on earth. Solid, old-fashioned storytelling."
