救火英雄 (As The Light Goes Out) (Blu-ray release 2014-5-22) is the latest Hong Kong movie about firefighters.  This one is significantly more interesting than the previous disappointing Hong Kong / China fire-fighting movie I watched.  It does not lack stupid people doing really stupid things to cause the fire and put themselves in danger.  What makes it interesting is that this movie is different from the others – it focuses far more on smoke than on fire.  We get a lot of slow motion beautiful shots of handsome actors in smoke.  The second thing that makes it interesting is that it actually feels like a ghost movie rather than a conventional firefighting movie.
