Not bad, but it's not as good as THE CHINA SYNDROME which has intensity and at times is chilling. William Devane is the whole show here as he tries to save the day at a nuclear power plant in Minnesota. It's your basic mid 70's disaster pic. And guess who plays the bad guy? None other than ole' Jim Siedow of Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE, sporting a beard which makes him hard to recognize. Ralph Waite of THE WALTONS also shows up as a big shot government boss who has a beef going with Devane. Although the story takes place in Minnesota, it was filmed in Texas. Siedow made all his movies down there because thats where he lived.

Score, 6 out of 10 Stars
