Trivia

The soundtrack for this documentary was performed by the Moscow Symphony, and recorded in Moscow. Oddly, this allowed people to view the previously classified material that the former USSR, now Russia, wanted and tried hard to procure it. See more »

FORGET THREADS!!
16 August 2004 | by (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) – See all my reviews

This is the scientific version of "Threads" and has much more drama. William Shatner's low and 'Star Trek' warm monotone narration combined with earth shattering images provide this movie with entertainment that you just want to watch over and over again. The 3D section is excellent, especially if your watching it in Dolby pro-logic and on DVD. The most interesting moment for me personally is where the news reporters are at the test site and you can see every emotion in their faces just before the bomb goes off. The device detonates and we are shown the images of a house imploding and cars and buses being hurtled into the air and disintegrating upon impact with the heat blast. Pure quality. Put it this way, choice between "Threads" and "Trinity"? Trinity will always come first because what's portrayed is fact, not fiction.
