A Must See~, 21 July 2011
Author: tishwilson1 from United States

The Forgotten Bomb has reminded me how important it is that we never forget how WWII ended and what happened to our fellow human beings in Japan. My father, a WW II veteran always told my sisters and me that it was necessary to use the bombs to end the war and he dehumanized the Japanese; that never really "fit" with my way of thinking/feeling.

The film focuses on several distinct themes: human cost, financial cost, moral cost and the current use of the technology developed and its potential continued misuse as a weapon of mass destruction OR for nuclear power and how unsafe it really can be (think tsunami in Japan after the devastating earthquake).

Ryan and Overbey have created a film that is rich on facts, at times tense with challenging information, a call to "do something" and, thankfully, some lighthearted bits of humor (in cartoon form).

I highly recommend this film be viewed by all.
