  • With an authoritative Craig T. Nelson as the father, The Fire Next Time may be a downer but could burn up the ratings.

    Played on TV tonight....Flood catastrophe wipes out nearly a whole town! Craig T Nelson can act! Bedelia is wonderful too...as well as has a great body. Very Southern . The Amish way of life plays a significant part in restoration.

    Preachy futuristic disaster frilm repeatedly delivers a heavy-handed environmental message. As a result of global warming, coastal towns are flooding while plains dry up. Amidst this, Craig T. Nelson tries to reunite his estranged family. Unbelievable plot twists.

    When I first saw this movie on TV, I freaked out a little because I thought it was prophetizing the Louisiana Levee beak. As the movie went on, I realized this was supposed to occur 24 years into the future and it ended up being a sub-par disaster flick.
