Fear-mongering, conspiracy theory garbage
29 May 2019 | by david_candlishSee all my reviews

I'd hoped this would be a feature touching on the disaster - of which there is already a lot of material available - but spend the bulk of its time discussing the state of the cleanup, new safe confinement, effect on people and animals...

Instead it's an hour long anti-nuclear, absurdly biased rant. Filmed using cheap tricks to imply threat and terror and reusing the same footage time and again, it adds nothing to the legacy of Chernobyl & nothing to the discussion. It is an hour long diatribe against nuclear power with nothing to recommend it.

It doesn't even focus on Chernobyl, cutting back and forth to other radiological stories such as the salt mine at Asse, all in its quest to try and sell nuclear power as some kind of uncashed demon and unless we all live off grid as vegans we're doomed.

Do not waste your time on this pile.

(I made a nuclear based joke for those truly interested in the source material)
