I must admit that I am behind but we finally went to see this one yesterday and it was well worth the money. Call me cheap nut I hate payng 16.00 bucks to see a movie when I can buy it whn it comes out for the same price and watch it over and over, but this one was worth it.

I saw Ladder 49 a while ago but here's my review on it from Netflix:

Just saw this movie in theatres and thought I'd write a review. I really enjoyed this movie and I am amazed that it recieved such bad reviews from the critics. This movie does exactly what its supposed to do, tell a compelling story of bravery and service to the public while presenting it in a way that illicits an emotional response. The acting by Travolta in this movie is very good genuinely believable. Joaquin Phoenix gives stale performance as a rookie fire fighter but the story is compelling enough for the viewer to overlook his vapid performance. The director guides the audience through the trials and tribulations of fire fighters quite effectively using the now familiar flashback story telling method. It works well in this film as we see the relationship between Phoenix and Travolta grow into a strong friendship. The movie performs well visually and without any annoying camera angles which I thought this film might include. Overall I was very pleased with the presentation of this movie. The actors were able to effectively form a bond with the audience so that all the emotions seem more real and appear to hit closer to home. This movie is a must see for anyone.
