Overview

In this taut, low-budget drama, a heated office argument is abruptly curtailed by a terrible disaster that leaves the four contentious participants trapped in a nuclear fallout shelter. It all begins within a large Manhattan bank when Rachel, an ambitious young executive, terminates long-time employee Dan for approving a bum loan. She then informs him that the man who recommended the loan, Will, is taking over his job. Joseph, Dan's personal assistant swears that it is all a surprise to him. The situation is about to explode when a fire alarm sounds and the building begins shaking horribly. In a panic the four flee to the basement where they end up in fallout shelter. Terrified and confused, with only a single water bottle to sustain them, the foursome try desperately to survive while figuring out if the rest of the world is intact outside their prison walls.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This clever chamber piece by director Robert Palumbo is a not-too-bad first feature, in both concept and execution. The idea that office politics would follow the four co-workers into what may be their death chamber is intriguing -- would you continue to bicker about losing your job if you were near losing your life? -- and the sense of claustrophobia is palpable. Although on the surface Fallout is a disaster movie -- there's an explosion in a high rise building, after all -- Palumbo doesn't waste any of his preciously tiny budget (a reported 90,000 dollars) on pyrotechnics; the disaster is implied rather than shown, and that makes for a far more powerful threat in the viewer's mind than some cheesy explosion. The emphasis is on the characterizations and the figurative, not the literal, meaning of the title. It's a small movie, but well cast and acted, and although for the bulk of the running time the characters stay in the same concrete bunker, the film is never boring. Kudos also to the cagey sound design that keeps the ear attuned just as the script keeps the mind engaged.
