    On the Beach

Rating:

Disaster:

Nuclear

Plot Summary:

A US submarine finds refuge in Australia after nuclear war decimates the Northern Hemisphere. However, it is only a matter of time before the radiation spreads to Australia and ends life there too.

Comments:

A haunting and tragic film about the end of the world. The cast performed well and the story was believable and watchable from start to finish. On the down side, the film focuses a lot on the romance between the two main stars of the film, rather than the epic scale of the event and as such loses a point. The dialogue is also a tad dated and lacks interest for todays audiences.
