Plot Summary:

World War III looks set to begin when a Russian terrorist group steals a nuclear weapon and detonates it over a Soviet city. Assuming that NATO was responsible, the soviets respond by launching a limited strike against the US. The US president responds in kind with an equal nuclear exchange. When the presidents chopper goes down, all hell breaks loose and WWIII seems inevitable...

Comments:

This story is told entirely from a military perspective and is a fast paced, thrilling ride through the potentials of World War III. You will want to watch this time and time again.

Special Effects:

The special effects are brief and localised, but what you do see is overall very convincing. Watch this film not for its effects but for the story.
