Under Fire review
Netflix’s “Under Fire” is a show with potential, and it builds the characters well and far exceeds expectations. The film is set in a fire station. We see a group of close-knit firefighters whose lives have changed in the play. We see firefighters regardless of their ordinary and stereotyped lives, and always strive to provide high-quality work and put saving lives. in the first place.
During the making of the show, with so many seemingly unnecessary plots involved, the show forgot the need for a deep connection between the characters and the audience. The lack of depth and emotional connection to the characters is what makes the show a failure, despite its intriguing and dramatic story.
The shooting style of “Under Fire” is also very casual, often reminding us of something old, which is not a good way. The actors certainly try their best, but their roles are not enough to convince the audience of their performance. Overall, despite its flaws, Under Fire is an enjoyable show, and it has its moments of brilliance. However, the film was certainly a blip, with immature characters and too many subplots to stand out.
Under Fire Ending Explained: Has the fire station been shut down?
East Bank Station will not be closed, and when Patrick goes to his superior Gilbert to ask about the difference in the fire hydrant map, the latter stops Patrick to shut up. He also revealed that he would merge East Bank Station with another station, ending the single operation of East Bank Station. Gilbert tries to end the investigation of Patrick by suspending his work and threatening to close the platform.
However, files Vincent found on Gilbert’s computer allowed Patrick to learn the truth about the disconnected fire hydrant. At Patrick’s direction, Dominic finds documents about Gilbert’s troubles. As a fire department supervisor, Gilbert must have sold the underground pipes that were supposed to be connected to the fire hydrants to a company and steered them for financial gain. Since the documents were signed by him, it is clear that he was behind the whole affair, and it is likely that he had superior accomplices. Patrick’s conversation with an urban planner made it clear that water was an invaluable resource for Gilbert and his cohorts to sell.
The documents were also exposed, and Gilbert was implicated in the crime. The fire service then decided not to close the East Coast fire station or merge it with another fire station. After the stigma caused by Gilbert, they probably didn’t want to shut down the fire station whose people revealed the truth about the hydrant to raise suspicions.
