Kurt Russell and William Baldwin are two feuding siblings carrying on a heroic family tradition as Chicago firefighters in this acclaimed suspense story filled with some of the most awe-inspiring fire sequences ever captured on film.

ILM contributed to a number of critical shots for the film — cutting seamlessly with the onset special effects supervisor and cinematographer’s incredible work — and its miniatures, matte paintings, and live action elements were combined to create the magnificent imagery of a burning, collapsing rooftop. The ILM team was honored with an Academy award for Best Visual Effects for their work.
