Rate this:
Tracing the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possessing nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. The film makes a compelling case for worldwide nuclear disarmament, an issue more topical than ever as over 40 nations have the technical capacity to construct nuclear weapons.

It gets lazy halfway through, and just shows footage of New York, and shows interview after interview. The first half is pretty interesting, and explains the background of nuclear weapons.

This was simply propaganda. There was over an hour about how "the terrorists" are trying to get nuclear weapons. This includes a long section about how Iran is getting nuclear weapons. In comparison there was 30 seconds about Israel getting nuclear weapons. They also didn't say where Israel got the weapons.

Very little mention of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the only time a country (the US) bombed a civilian population with nuclear weapons. Also not mentioned, the US and Russia have 80% of the world's nuclear weapons. Maybe there should be something in this movie about that.

This is the scariest film I've seen this year. We all live our lives with a certain complacency... well... it won't be so complacent after this!
