Rating: 5/5 -- The great merit of this picture, aside from its entertaining qualities, is the fact that it carries a passionate conviction that man is worth saving, after all. Full Review

Director Kramer's drama is a bleak and heart wrenching tale of the end of the world... Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Gloomy doomsday film that is more talky, melodramatic and numbing than imaginative. Full Review

Fine photography, but the script is a typically numbing affair, and the cast, aside from Peck and Meillon, seem totally out of their depth. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- As scary a horror film as any you will find.
Film Threat

...the haunting "fallout" of the drama lingers deeply in the mind, and Kramer in my catalogue was the producer of the year for daring to make a movie about the atomic destruction of the human race-and to release it a few days before Christmas. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- The scenario - one of the best in Stanley Kramer's filmography - is uniquely human in the annals of post-nuclear cinema. Full Review

Product Description:

After the entire Northern Hemisphere is destroyed by a nuclear war, a group of survivors in Australia prepare for their own inevitable demise. As a deadly cloud of radiation creeps toward the continent, some survivors cling to hopes that life as they know it has continued somewhere, hopes that are fed by the discovery of a mysterious, erratic radio signal emanating from San Diego. Others, such as Astaire's sardonic, race-car driving physicist and Gardner's world-weary, tippling party girl, throw their energies into squeezing the last drops from their lives. A grim, unflinching clarion call for sanity that inches along at a maddeningly deliberate and suspenseful pace. Based on the novel by Nevil Shute. Academy Award Nominations: 2, Best Editing (Frederic Knudtson) and Best Score (Ernest Gold).

Plot Synopsis:

This gripping, anti-nuclear drama imagines the world after the H-bomb is dropped.
The only survivors are in Australia, waiting for the clouds of radiation to blow their way. Along with the Australians, is an American submarine crew that was undersea when the bomb exploded. The film tells a tale of human beings copping with imminent death and the final destruction of the earth.
