Retro - radiation ...........
21 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sabotage is suspected at a Minnesota nuclear power plant, and a struggle ensues involving government response by the book (Ralph Waite), and logic prevailing (William Devane). Also thickening the plot is a massive computer, political implications of a meltdown, and personal tragedy. Ethical questions abound, and someone has to make the life and death decisions. "Red Alert" is really a unique viewing experience. It has decent character development, an exciting story, and will make you think, even if it is only about an impending disaster, and it's implications for everyone concerned. This is truly an involving and entertaining film. - MERK
