A BS Production
22 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening credits say that it is a BS production and that is certainly correct. Just another in a long line of movies slamming the evil old U.S. for nuking Japan and calling for a complete elimination of nuclear weapons from the face of the earth. Well I've got a newsflash for Mr. Ryan, it ain't going to happen. Do this genius really think that the likes of North Korea and Iran are going to stop their nuclear ambitions if the rest of the world does it first? Like it or not the nuclear genie is out of the bottle and there is no putting it back.

This film is worth a few laughs though. The best is when they say that during the Cuban missile crisis John Kennedy made the statement that if the situation was not handled carefully, 200 million people could die. Not likely since at this time the population of the entire U.S. was less than 200 million and the missiles in question did not have sufficient range to reach much further than some east coast cities.
