IF ''BACKDRAFT'' were rated on its special effects alone, it would deserve a 10. Unfortunately, a movie of this sort can travel so far on special effects, then it needs plot.Ah, but those special effects! It's amazing that anyone could stage all this for the screen. It's equally amazing that no one died during the filming.Fire is treated as something of an "other presence" in this film, and it is. Ron Howard directed, and he and his crew have managed some spectacular conflagration. This is a movie in which flames are almost beautiful.

What you see isn't always what was writ.Books are often changed to give the audience more of what it wants -- or what studio executives think it wants.
