"What an eye opener."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This has to be one of the greatest hologaust movies ever to grace the big screen. It has been many years since I first saw this giant of a movie on big screen, and this release all these years latter has lost none of its original punch. It should be manditory for world leaders to watch this, it shocked me when I first viewed it and I am sure it would do the same for them.

Description

Apocalypse... The end of the familiar... The beginning of the end.

SYNOPSIS
The starkly realistic drama of nuclear confrontation and its devastating effect on a group of average American citizens caused much controversy upon it’s initial U.S. TV in 1983.

Previous films depicted the Nuclear weapons race as the domain of over zealous military staff and politicians, this film focuses firmly on the effects a devastating Nuclear holocaust would have on the average Joe.

The story takes place in Lawrence, Kansas, the geographical near centre of the U.S. We are succinctly introduced to a cross-section of American life; a doctor (Jason Robards) , a graduate student (Steve Guttenberg) , a young bride-to-be (Lori Lethin), and an academic (John Lithgow) , before the Bomb destroys nearby Kansas City. The resulting destruction is entirely horrific, however a few manage to survive whilst struggling to come to terms with the inevitable collapse of society, not to mention the rising radiation levels.

As a protest vehicle The Day After is a bleak look at the effects Nuclear war would have on humanity and is no less powerful, more than 20 years after it’s initial release.
