Seeing young Matthew Broderick as a young and geeky, rather pathetic looking teen, all of the sudden thrown into the midst of a nuclear war scenario was perhaps one of the most entertaining things I've seen all year,
Great fun and reasonable accuracy on the military side of things.
For a film over 20 years old, it still has punch. What a brilliant film with a very potent message! Engaging, suspensful and an overall enjoyable experience. I found the acting great and the idea of computer systems in such a powerful position is believable (if not actual in current day) and relevant still. 4 Stars.
this movie kept us on the edge of our seats, not knowing who was good or bad made it more edgey, the kids decided that after watching this thay were'nt ever touching things that were'nt theirs! we'll see!
I know this movie is a bit old now but it is still worth watching. The questions that are raised are still current.
Although a bit dated now, was still enjoyable. Chance to see how much technology has advanced in such a short time.
