A master piece!!!
17 September 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Simply brilliant!!!

A master piece!!!

This is one of the best and most important films I have ever seen. A film that really should be watched by everyone alive. THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD works as both a gripping tale, an intense thriller, and a true celebration of humanity and mankind.

A modern DR STRANGELOVE... but a true story. It really blew the minds of me, my daughter and my wife!!! Thank you so much Peter Anthony for directing this master piece... and thank you Stanislav for saving the world!
