Batman wasn't a good choice
23 October 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Having watched all Kuran's rather remarkable documentaries about atomic madness that seem to cover pretty much everything about the US a-bomb program, this last one of the series is probably the weakest.

Although I understand that Adam West falls to the same category as William Shatner in how their careers have worked out since Batman and Star Trek, the latter was much better narrator in all the other a-bomb docs.

Shatner's voice builds up a certain kind of enthusiasm in the viewer with his calm voice whereas Adam sounds like he's straining to sound more dramatic than his voice naturally sounds like. The crazy/beautiful pictures of the nuclear mishaps and explosions are an enough dramatic thriller already and Adam's voice just distracts the viewer.

This film like all the other of the series contain pretty awesome pictures and trivia of how close US came to some major megaton-scale accidents in their home turf and in Europe too. Unfortunately this film doesn't give too much information about how the accidents affect the world today with contaminated soil and radiation, and some accidents are covered with much more detail than others.
