Eye for Film

Lucy Walker's chilling documentary serves as a reminder that the threat of a nuclear bomb going off somewhere in the world to devastating effect has not diminished just because it has slipped from the public consciousness.

We've gone backwards rather than forwards. To watch a film such as this is to shudder all over again.

Financial Times

The film's most sobering fact: any world leader has a maximum of 10 seconds to decide to retaliate in the event of a nuclear attack.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

The threat of nuclear disaster is clear and present according to this documentary. Yet its argument that Armageddon is right around the corner is as terrifying as milk.

Daily Express

The chilling and highly informative film shows how perilously close we are to nuclear catastrophe, either via terrorism, Dr Strangelove-style cock-up or simple accident.

Screamingly urgent and contemporary.

Countdown to Zero leaves you uneasy enough about the threat from nukes, but also amazed that to date, at least, no blunder has ended in annihilation.

This campaigning documentary offers a sobering warning that the possibility of nuclear destruction is still very much with us.

Comes loaded with a relatively big budget and a line-up of talking heads more powerful than a meeting of the Bilderberg Group.

A valuable and scary film that should be seen.

Looking at Walker's film objectively, it suggests how damn lucky we've been so far, and attempts to finish on an 'upbeat' note - after scaring the bejesus out of us

Sobering stuff, especially when smart talkingheads - including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and ex-US Secretary Of Defence Robert McNamara - confirm it's a matter of "when" not "if". Eek.

By miscalculation, accident or madness (not to mention badness), mankind, or much of it, could evaporate in a nuclear cloud ... the film grabs our attention

This film may not be the best researched or most balanced, or most reliable documentary of the year, but it is the scariest.
