The U.S. military Defense Condition (DEFCON) system actually counts down from five (normal peacetime operations) down to DEFCON 1 (maximum readiness for nuclear war), despite the film's title implying DEFCON 4 was reached during a full-scale nuclear war. DEFCON 4 is actually only being slightly more prepared for war than a standard peacetime defense condition. The highest confirmed DEFCON was DEFCON 2, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. See more »

I have to say that I am very surprised at the very low 3.5 rating! This film is very underrated and I must say that it is genuinely one of the best movies I've seen. Okay this movie is very low budget and at times cliché but the subliminal message of the whole storyline is intriguing. Not many people will see this but there are many references to past dictatorships and sociological theories. If you can try and watch the movie without acknowledging its low budgetness then perhaps you can witness some fine acting, particularly from Alan MacGillivray, who plays the eventual hero of the film, Boomer. I am surprised from his sheer excellence in his performance as Boomer, that his career did not extend to bigger and better things. This film is a hidden gem. Highly recommended.
