Ladder 49 (2004) DVD9
Ladder 49 follows newbie firefighter Jack Morrison's (Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator, Signs) emotional and physical climb through the firefighting ranks. When Jack arrives and is assigned by the fire chief, Mike Kennedy (John Travolta, Pulp Fiction), to the search and rescue unit, Jack discovers the pitfalls and perils of one of the most dangerous jobs on earth. When one of Jack's rescue operations goes horribly wrong, he ends up somewhere inside a burning building while his comrades attempt to get him out. It's at this point in the story that the filmmakers flash back to Jack's beginnings as a firefighter, his eventual courting of and marriage to the lovely Linda (Jacinda Barrett), the birth of his son, and the deaths of some of his best friends at work. Jack's life hangs by a thread—can his buddies save him in time, or will he succumb to the dangers of the blaze?
