This could only have been made in the Cold War 1980s
Not to be confused with the pulp novel series. A small nuclear device is detonated in Siberia and sends the world into a cold war panic. Back in Texas, Jack Tillman (Steve Railsback), a sort of doomsdayer-lite, is fully prepared for the chaos erupting. He gets his family together to go save his son at a summer camp. But when his wife and daughter are killed by random roaming ruffians, he is forced to go on the run with his doctor friend Vincent (Cliff De Young) and his wife Linda (Susan Blakely). Of course, not before offending National Guard nut (and former 'Nam nemesis) Lt. Youngman (Marjoe Gortner), who decides the biggest priority in this worldwide panic is to kill the man who crushed his motorcycle with a backhoe. This is a film that seems like it could have only been made in the '80s. Director Sig Shore (producer of SUPERFLY) gets the most out of the barren locations, but ineptly handles the rioting masses (which seem to be about 12 people). The screenplay is credited to one John V. Kraft (amusingly, a copyright search finds a script from 1986 with that title credited to an equally pseudonym sounding Louis J. Mayo...mmmm, Kraft and Mayo) and it seems really confused as if Tillman is the hero. I assume they wanted this to be a FIRST BLOOD (1982) type flick, but Tillman is so mean to nearly everyone he meets that it is hard to like him. Railsback is his usually self and the supporting turns by De Young and Blakely are better than one would expect.
