I have not been to the movie for years! This was an excellent film. Very professionally done and truly should be seen by everyone. I would definately see it again.

This was very well done it shows that the Firefighters are not the bad guys in the city's budget problems. They are willing to stay and fight for their city with very little help from the city. They are good people I love them all. This was a well done move and I would see it again.

This documentary was very well done & captivating. You really felt like you knew the characters at the end of the film. Obviously more of a draw for a specific audience, but a great film!

Burn was the absolute best documentary i have seen in a very longtime.
This isn't some historical documentary about something that happened years, decades, or centuries ago , this is a current story. This is happening RIGHT NOW! as i sit here, typing this review, the DFD is putting their lives on the line to save our great city.
Yes, they are Heroes, they save people, they risk their lives for people, but they are also HUMAN. They get injured, they have bad days, some even die. This is something i think isn't really portrayed in films about firefighters and pollice: the HUMAN side.
Overall i think this is an amazing story that absolutely NEEDS to be told.

Heard about this movie from my wife, who is from Detroit, and also had the pleasure of sitting next to two or the firefighters on a recent flight from Boston. The movie is very real and sad, both from the risks of the firefighters and the state of Detroit's economy in general.
A significant portion of any profits from the film will go the the Leary Firefighters Foundation to purchase gear for the firefighters. For more information you can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and at ***detroitfirefilm.org
