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 »

One of the better eighties post-apocalyptic films was and is Def Con 4. It bombed in 1985 but has gone on to gain a small cult following. It is the story of three astronauts, one in particular, who witness war and nuclear holocaust from a satelite. The space footage is well shot and a genuine sense of dread reigns as we watch them contemplate the deaths of their families and of civilization.
When their satelite is forced to land they fall into a nuclear wasteland fillled with armed militants and plague ridden cannibals. This is perhaps one of the dirtiest looking movies of its day, which rather adds to the already oppresive atmosphere. Unfortunately Def Con runs out of steam toward the somewhat hurried finale. Yet if your not easily put off by the brutal tone of the movie, its science fiction worthy of 90 minutes of your life.
