On Fire Review
The movie ‘On Fire’ is set to show only in cinemas all over the country from September 29. The film, based on the real and terrifying events of a major wildfire in Northern California, first showed at the 2023 Mammoth Film Festival. There, it got a nomination for the best genre film.

My On Fire review
I love disaster movies and watch them regularly so I was excited to be able to watch On Fire which is based on real events. We hear so much about disasters in the news lately that it’s interesting to watch a movie based on actual events.
The movie is based on a true story, which makes the intense drama feel even more real. The fires are shown in a way that is both scary and impressive, reminding us how powerful nature can be.
But “On Fire” isn’t just about surviving. It’s also about the human ability to keep going even when things are hard. This movie is a real success and a must-see that will inspire and move those who watch it.
So, if you enjoy adventure stories, this needs to be at the top of your must watch list. Laughlin and his family were so easy to relate to and I found myself on the edge of my seat as I waited to see what would happen next.
Check out the trailer. Look for it in theaters on September 29th.
