[after Crane leaves the missile silo's mortuary]
I noticed Dr. Crane seemed uneasy in here.
I can't imagine why anyone would be uneasy around all these *dead men*. Can you, Major?

A disaster of a movie but not the kind of disaster they intended
A disaster of a movie but not the kind of disaster the film makers intended. Just awful movie with inept "special" effects and a host of usually fine actors giving atrocious performances. Katharine Ross in particular is terrible, beyond wooden to positively inert but Caine is hardly better. The only one who is seemingly trying to earn his paycheck is Richard Widmark who gives his all while surrounded by bored costars. Although who can blame them with a script that stinks like year old cheese. Let's hope they were well paid. Do yourself a favor and don't watch. If you have to see a bee disaster movie seek out "Killer Bees" a TV movie with Gloria Swanson and Kate Jackson which at least is entertaining.
