Hello everyone..it’s blog-time again..
Well..nothing special happened these previous few days..so..no post for it..but it’s a different story now..I got a new story..
Ladder 49..for those who doesn’t know what it is..It’s a new movie..It’ll be premier on local cinemas on 14th October 2004..
KLCC alredy having a few shows a day..some kinda sneak previews..So..I watched it just now..Just came back from KLCC watching the movie..
Ladder 49..a movie about firefighters (we call it fireman in Malaysia)..It’s something like Hong Kong Chinese Drama – Burning Flame..
Ladder 49 starring John Travolta..Joaquin Phoenix..and a guy i don’t know what’s his name..umm..the guy in X-Files..not Fox Mulder..the guy after Mulder‘s death..
Anyway..this movie, Ladder 49..concentrates more on Jack Morrison (Joaquin Phoenix)..John Travolta as Captain Mike..
Jack Morrison..begun his firefighter career as a rookie..he works with the Baltimore Fire Department..and has a great headman..Captain Mike..
He’s doing fine with his job..as the hoseman..responsible for putting out the fire..
He meets his wife..Linda Morrison (hmm..quite pretty though)..together with his best-fren..Denise (a guy..also a firefighter..)
One day..it’s very unfortunate for Denise..Jack’s best-fren..he fell down into a collapsing building while doing his job..
It’s very hard for Jack and the other members of Engine 33 (it’s the number of the fire-truck they used) and Ladder 49 (the number of their battalion)..
From that moment onwards..Jack decided to shift his job..from a hoseman..to a truckman (runs into the fire and rescue victims)..
He tries his best to save lifes..as a way he shows his respect to his best-fren..Denise..
Until 1 day..Tommy..1 of the crew member..got into accident..some hot steam blew to his face at a very high force and momentum..
Tommy‘s face become so bad..that they need to use dead people’s skin to save his face..
Jack traumatised by the 2 incidents..questioning himself..whether to continue as a truckman to save lifes..or be as a chief assistant at the headquater as Captain Mike recommended..
Anyway..Jack still continue his truckman job..in trauma..until 1 day..the Christmas Day..
He saves 1 life..and being honoured for his bravery to save life on Christmas Day..
After that..he’s happy with his truckman job..and without any fear..he’s 1 great firefighter..
But..as a firefighter..risks are still exist anywhere at anytime..
A tall-building broke into fire..and it’s a great fire..with flames and explosion from every corner of the building..
Making it hard to put out the fire..but..there are victims inside the burning building..So..it’s the firefighters’ job to put out the fire and save lifes..
Jack together with other crew members of Ladder 49..charged into the building..to look for victims..
Because of the fire..other crew members need to rescue the people out of the building..left Jack alone trying to find the remaining 1 victim..
He found him..and rescued him through the firetruck’s safety ladder..
But unfortunately..an explosion burst out and the walls and floors in the building collapse..and Jack Morrison fell back into the building..Just to rescue a life..
He says to the frigthen victim, “I’m not going before u go..”
Because of that..he himself got into trouble..resulting the other crew from other battalions help out to find Jack..trapped inside the building, injured..
Captain Mike himself commanded the rescue team..because Jack is 1 of his best-fren..and among the best of the best..
It is so close for the rescue team to rescue Jack out from the flaming building..after lots of efforts from Jack to try to save himself..
He needs to crawl and break walls to get to another room for an easier rescue mission..
But..a hot and high burning flame between the door..where the rescue team is..and the room..where Jack is..
It caused problem for them to reach Jack..as the flames of fire is very very hot and thick to get through..
So..Jack decided to let his teammates to go..letting him burn inside..rather than burning other lifes..
By using walkie-talkie..Jack told Mike..to tell his wife, Linda..that he always loves her.. ~sob sob sob~..
I began try cry at this part..so do others who are watching with me.. ~sob sob sob~..
He risked his life..to save a man..Captain Mike also knows the outcome..
So..he decided to retreat his rescue team..and the burning goes on.. ~sob sob sob~ =’( ~ iskh ~ iskh ~ iskh ~..
And there’s the funeral ceremony..i creid again.. ~sob sob sob sob~..
Jack Morrison..I salute him as 1 of the greatest firefighter ever.. /(‘ ‘)
If everyone be careful not to let things like this happened..there’ll be peace everywhere in the world and no life risks..
I can’t stop holding my tears even when i write this blog.. ~sob sob sob~
This movie makes me think of Armageddon.. ~sob sob sob~..
I’m signing off here.. ~sob sob sob~
