Poitier does an excellent job in both the light and serious aspects of his role, and manages to leave a personal stamp on his scenes.

Channels themes from Dr. Strangelove but leaves at port the black humor.

Harris, Stanley Kubrick's former producer, here came up with his own Dr Strangelove variant, muting the black humour but just as incisively diagnosing nuclear insanity.

The ending is a real piece of work that comes out of nowhere, and even though the film is a little repetitive up to that point, it's all worth it for the titular 'incident' in the end.

The whole thing transcends plausibility -- for a moderately wised-up viewer, at least -- because of its gross exaggeration of a highly improbable episode.

Parallels to today's global political environment and our government's new cold war loom as large as the icebergs surrounding the USS Bedford and its Soviet prey in the North Atlantic Sea.

Harris's film is a superior psycho-drama.
