Storyline

During routine maintenance of a liquid-fuelled ICBM, the fuel tank is penetrated by a falling spanner. The film traces the efforts of the maintenance crew and associated military and civilian personnel to recover the potentially disastrous situation before the fuel tank is sufficiently depressurised that the stack collapses and explodes.

Military potboiler with religious overtones ........
16 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first half hour of "Disaster at Silo 7", setting up a Titan 2 Missle disaster, is pretty mundane stuff, with touchy feeley character development and a significant dose of religious overtones. Until a ratchet punctures a fuel tank and sets the crisis in motion, very little happens except a lot of confusing technical mumbo jumbo. Once things go terribly wrong the story picks up considerably. The main focus of the military seems to be covering up their sometimes incompetent orders, while the audience certainly can sympathize with the men on the firing line who seem to be constantly bogged down by command decisions. Definitely above average for a TV movie. - MERK
