Movie Reviews

It's not that hysterical
Stanwyck | Texas | 05/21/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Almost all of the movies contained on these three discs were made by the government during the early cold war. If you are interested in either movies about nuclear tests, or survival after an attack, you will like this DVD.

It could have been organized a bit better, the movies could have been put in chronological order, for instance, so you aren't watching a movie about the H-bomb and then see something about the Hiroshima attack.

In fact, all the nuclear test videos could have been put on one disc, and another disc could have contained the movies concerning civil defense.

Some of the movies about the tests are detailed, but they tend to repeat themselves over time, and some have been edited, because- even 50 plus years after the fact- they contained some classified material.

The civil defense movies are a bit naive- everyone always survives- and if they are seperated from their family- they always turn up safe at another shelter. However, a lot of what is presented about the dangers of fallout could still come in handy in today's "dirty bomb" environment.

A couple of the movies could have been excised entirely- one called "This is not a test" is a good example. It's just a lousy movie with an A-Bomb attack as one of it's labored plot elements.

It takes 17 hours to watch all the discs, so stock up your fallout shelter and make sure you have enough batteries for your DVD player, and then enjoy."
