Very interesting low budget nuclear war drama that you should see., 31 March 2001

This film takes place on a stretch of lonely highway where a bull headed state trooper has been ordered to set up a road block. Strange messages broadcast from the radio. A nuclear war is on the way. Holding back a group of stranded motorists that arrive at the road block, the state trooper soon begins to lose control of the situation. The film deals with the various reactions of an odd assortment of characters when they realize the end is coming. Being a low budget film with a cast of some professionals and amateurs, the performances are uneven. The dialogue ranges from good to silly. But the film is intelligent and well made on a small budget. The films makers did not attempt to do anything that could not be done with the limited budget they had, and instead decided to tell a simple but intelligent story. This film is hard to find and I was lucky to find a copy of it at my local video store. Don't believe what critic John Stanley says about this film. If it turns up on T.V. or you can find a video copy, by all means see this film!
