Newt's movie review

Kurt Russell and a Baldwin as brothers. Right.

But Russell is a macho, beer drinkin', almost divorced firefighter who lives on a boat, listens to 8-Tracks, and does what he can to be with his son and protect his baby brother. Very macho stuff.

It's action packed, exciting and filled with really amazing special effects. It was an OK film, but the FX were so incredible it makes it recommended. Check it out.
