Under Siege in space
DEAD FIRE is a lot like UNDER SIEGE, only DEAD FIRE takes place on a space station with an evil madman played by Matt Frewer that takes control of the station and plots to take over the world but there is only one man that stands in his way.
Basically if you watch this film today you'll forget about it tomorrow, it doesn't really have much going for it in terms of originality, if you've seen UNDER SIEGE you'll be able to predict how this film plays out, the only original part is that it plays off in space.
In terms of the acting leading man Colin Cunningham plays a typical action hero (nothing special there) Matt Frewer plays a typical villain thats hellbent on world domination and you can see he has fun doing it, and C. Thomas Howell is actually a good comedy relief.
In short its nothing special, see it once and after wards you won't really care to much about it.
