(2017) (Josh Brolin, Miles Teller) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A team of firefighters strive to attain elite status, all while contending with the dangers of various wildfires they must battle.
- Eric Marsh (JOSH BROLIN) is the superintendent of Fire Station 7 in Prescott, Arizona. He's a seasoned firefighter and seems to have an innate knowledge of how wildfires will behave, but he and his crew must often take the back seat to elite hotshot crews from other jurisdictions. Accordingly, he wants his team to achieve that same status and pushes fire chief Duane Steinbrink (JEFF BRIDGES) to make that happen. While those on his team look forward to the prospects of that, including Eric's number two man, Jesse Steed (JAMES BADGE DALE), Eric's wife, Amanda (JENNIFER CONNELLY), is less than thrilled. She already worries about his safety and time spent away from home, and a promotion to hotshot status would only exacerbate that.
One young man who wants in on the action is former deadbeat drug user Brendan McDonough (MILES TELLER) who's decided he must turn his life around now that he's fathered a baby with Natalie (NATALIE HALL), even if that young woman initially doesn't want him around. Nor does Station 7 member Christopher MacKenzie (TAYLOR KITSCH) who knows of Brendan's burnout past. As Brendan tries to prove his worth to him and the rest of the crew, Eric does what he can to get his seasoned veterans and green rookies ready to pass their hotshot evaluation, all while battling various wildfires, some of which grow into quick moving and very dangerous disasters.
