    A thrilling cold war might -have-been

    A terrific "could this really have happened" story. Everyone's nightmare come true, similar to "Fail Safe," yet a different take on the subject. Kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end, and even though I know how it ends, I keep watching it because it is my favorite cold war story, even more so than "Hunt for Red October" (Sorry Sean Connery but Powers Boothe really rocks! Even though Rebecca De Mornay makes a realistic co-pilot she can't substitute for Sam Neill.). Only "On the Beach," "The Day After," and "Testament" surpasses this movie in thrills and scares. Worth buying to have in one's library.

    Awesome movie!

    I have been waiting for this on DVD for some time. This is a thrilling post-cold war nuclear thriller. It has an all star cast and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. A must have!

    could this happen?

    what would happen if our government lost control of its nuclear weapons? this movie shows us just how horrible the results could be. with exciting action sequences and heart pounding plots, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat.it is also a touching story of one man's fight to do the right thing and one general's ultimate sacrafice to preserve peace and humanity.
