Audience Reviews for By Dawn's Early Light
Smart and edgy action drama...this movie starts fast and only accelerates...razor sharp performances by the entire cast...this is an edge of your seat thrill ride that captivates your attention...don't miss it!
a really good tv movie akin to the Day After and Dr. Strangelove scenarios of WW3 of the USA VS the Soviet Union and the normalcy of living under the gun of mutually assured destruction.
Despite the low budget and small sets, this movie manages to be compelling from start to finish. The acting is top notch, and the fact that this could actually happen makes it all the more chilling.
