Why watch this film?
"Ogon" is a beautiful example of Russian cinema, and an interesting proof of its versatility: it is an action movie, but the difference is that it is not a story of good vs. evil, outlandish villains or relentless pursuits - here the enemy is fire and its devastating natural power. It is a movie about firefighters and the extreme risk of their profession, who daily challenge death for the greater good, one could say it is about real superheroes. Equipped with images as frightening as dazzling and well-filmed action sequences, the feature film is a choice that will please both action regulars and those interested in more human and real stories.
A heroic story about firefighters and rescuers. What we call an act of bravery is just a usual routine for them, if only one can get used to mortal danger and extreme risk. When people in distress seem to have nobody who may help them, rescuers come to fight against merciless forces of nature.
