Fail-Safe Reviews

Page 2 of 18
July 26, 2014
50 years on and Fail-Safe's chilling tale of the dangers of mutual assured destruction sadly remains as relevant and believable as ever. Henry Fonda is riveting as the President, tasked to deal with the most nightmarish of situations: a technical error has sent a squadron of US bombers loaded with A-bombs to Moscow, with little chance of stopping them in time. Sidney Lumet effectively creates a tense atmosphere (even without using a music score to heighten the tone), whilst Gerald Hirschfeld's stark black & white cinematography subliminally tells us everything about this film is a matter of life and death,
July 25, 2014
One of the realest movies ever made.
July 12, 2014
One of the most criminally overlooked films in cinematic history, mainly due to the extremely similar and far more popular Dr. Strangelove (my all time favorite film) being released in the same year, Fail-Safe derives more tension than I would have ever thought possible from the mere simplicity of blinking lights on a screen. Sidney Lumet demonstrates his directoral brilliance by attaining riveting performances from his cast and delivering the expected technical appeal with eerie lighting and excellently framed shots.

Released in the same year as Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove, Fail Safe suffered in comparison with the similarly-themed and more famous film, which had been released first. This is a shame, because it is an excellent political thriller.

Sidney Lumet created an overwhelming sense of claustrophobia, with the majority of scenes taking place in either small, windowless and sparsely furnished rooms within the White House and Pentagon, SAC Command Center dominated by the screen upon which the drama in the sky is unfolding, and aboard the cockpit of Air Force bomber. There is no music throughout the entire movie further underscoring the sparseness of the film's atmosphere. The conversations between the President of the United States and the Soviet premier are tense and believable, an effect achieved largely through the use of Larry Hagman as an interpreter rather than having the two leaders speaking directly to each other.
As time passes, and the stakes grow higher, the tension is cranked up to unbearable heights until Henry Fonda, the US President, is forced to make a horrific decision in order to assuage Soviet suspicions.

The cast is uniformly excellent from top to bottom. In the White House bunker, Henry Fonda as the President gives one of those leading man portrayals for which he was known. He brings just the right blend of authority and humanity to the role. Larry Hagman looks startlingly young and trim as the President's Russian language interpreter, and almost awestruck at the part he must play in the unfolding drama. His mannerisms, such as the blink of his eyes, are very much in evidence as his way of communicating to the President what the Soviet Party Chairman is saying and thinking.

In Pentagon War Room, Walter Matthau as a political scientist the is a dark individual with a cold analytical streak that is soon unmasked to reveal a streak of fanaticism. Counterbalancing him is Dan O'Herlihy as Colonel Black, the voice of reason throughout. More than that, though, the Black character is a framing device for the entire film. It is his recurring nightmare that opens the film and it is the reality of that nightmare that ends it. O'Herlihy's work in Fail-Safe is among the finest of his 50-year film and television acting career. At SAC headquarters in Omaha, both Frank Overton and Fritz Weaver are memorable as senior air force officials dealing with the crisis, and in Anchorage, familiar Ed Binns is effective as the pilot of the lead aircraft.

Beyond the cast, the most striking aspect of the film is the atmosphere it creates. The film is in black and white; it's lit from above or the sides creating a stark and sparse environment. This look and feel is uniformly maintained throughout the duration of the film as well as at all its locations. In fact, there is much about Fail Safe that is suggestive of film noir, from the visual style to the mental distress of the principal characters.

The movie is also packed with numerous memorable scenes: the opening bullfight; the US control room staff cheering spontaneously when one of their own planes is destroyed by a Soviet fighter plane; the poignant conversation between General Bogan and his Soviet counterpart as they realize all is lost; Matthau's clinical recommendation that, in the event of a nuclear strike, search efforts should be focused on retrieving corporation records instead of recovering the dead and dying; the superb climax that captures perfectly the sudden senseless obliteration of a city and its people, and irrefutably proves that multi-million dollar special effects aren't required to make a powerful, deeply affecting, impact on the view

Sidney Lumet made his classic films such as 12 Angry Men, Serpico, Network and The Verdict work so well because of those films' focus on characters and a claustrophobic setting. For Fail-Safe, he employed the same kind of method. Shot in very dark black-and-white, with cinematographer Gerald Hirschfeld closing in on the sweaty faces of lead actors, Lumet creates a very tense film that could easily be turned into a play. There's no music score and the movie is set in just a few locations, including the Strategic Air Command in Omaha and a very sparsely decorated room where the President's trying to convince the Soviet Premier (aided by Larry Hagman's bright, young interpreter) that Moscow is about to be annihilated - but not as part of a general U.S. attack on Russia. Watching Fonda and Hagman play this high-stakes game is fascinating. Other parts of the film also underscore a touching willingness among American and Russian military leaders to cooperate in the attempts to stop the bombers from reaching their target; less successful is the simple psychology behind Colonel Cascio's (Fritz Weaver) breakdown in the latter half of the film. Strong performances by the cast, including Walter Matthau in an early feature film appearance as Professor Groeteschele, the academic who disperses hard-line advice with a chilling enthusiasm on why attacking the Soviets first is a good idea.

By dint of its basic plausibility, its suspenseful script, and the uniform excellence of its cast, it is the epitome of cold war films, on par with its contemporaries dealing with the same subject: Dr. Strangelove and The Bedford Incident.

Feels like a serious version of Dr. Strangelove with a ton of famous actors and amazing looking black and white photography.
April 9, 2010
Close "Dr. Strangelove", but in a serious way (well, unless you thing Dr. Strangelove is more realistic, which can be perfectly feasible), it is not strange that it was not a success with the hard issues it talks about. Lumet goes to the limit -even too much- to show us the dangers of a nuclear war and to let the machines too much of our decisions. Very hard to watch because it is very intense.
October 27, 2013
Fail-Safe is mostly remembered because it was released the same time as Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and as a consequence, failed tremendously at the box office. Both films feature the same subject matter and even the same sort of story, but this one plays it completely straight and in a very bleak way. It doesn't feature a whole lot of big names other than Walter Matthau and Henry Fonda (both of whom are great), but it's troubled by a lax pace. That's the only thing really holding it back, because the performances, the dialogue, the cinematography and the direction are all really great. Sidney Lumet did well with this one and even though I love Dr. Strangelove, this a more suitable tackling of the subject matter, I suppose... that is, if you're wanting to take it more seriously.
October 14, 2013
Could a little mechanical mistake trigger a nuclear war? Such a possibility seemed more plausible in 1964 perhaps when Lumet's Fail-Safe and Kubrick's Strangelove were both released, the former dead serious but overshadowed by the latter's satire. Today, it seems more likely that a dirty suitcase bomb will wreak havoc rather than mutually assured annihilation (although the doomsday clock, which now includes threats from climate change and other imminent disasters, is still set at five minutes to midnight). Lumet's film is tense and frightening, with the suspense generated by the distrust between the Americans and the Soviets and the necessity for one to believe the other truly made a mistake rather than an intentional first strike (which some, including political scientist Walter Mathau and defense Colonel Fritz Weaver, are advocating anyway). Henry Fonda is the level-headed and compassionate US president and Larry Hagman is his interpreter to assist with the delicate communication to the Russians (handled in a nice bit of acting by these two). Low budget and framed by a weird dream sequence, but gut-wrenching if you think about the power that politicians really wield.

Watched it right after watching the remake. Great movie of the era. Absolutely tragic, cold, and terrifying as the time it was made in.
August 19, 2013
Brilliantly acted and starlky realistic cold war' what if?' thriller with Henry Fonda as the President f the United States, Walter Matthau, Frank Overton, Dan O'Herlihy and Larry Hagman.
August 11, 2013
One of my all time favorite movies. The movie is raw tension without ever leaving the confines of interior sets. The acting is phenomenal. Henry Fonda is perfect as the president. Larry Hagman shows his ability as an actor when you compare this role with his eventual role as J.R. Ewing. Dom Delouise even makes premiere as a very put-upon technical sergeant. I would like to say that this movie is an example of how tension and suspense can be created without explosion and unbelievable situations, but I think this movie must be somewhat of an anomaly because nothing comes close to it. The only thing I have seen that can match the same atmosphere is the brief part of Close Encounter of the Third Kind with the air traffic controllers (which is my favorite part of that movie). Fail-Safe is not for everyone though. You have to have an understanding of the nuclear tension between the USA and the old USSR to fully grasp the scope of the dilemma. I can not count the number of times I have watched this movie, and I will stop and watch it every time it comes on.
June 10, 2013
Cautionary tale about not over-reacting... and all those implications. A must see.

Chilling. Absolutely Chilling. One of the most silencing films I have ever seen.

Tense, new-world thriller.

Once it picks up after its slow start, Fail-Safe is a riveting, quickly-paced Cold War thriller with a stunning conclusion. It's a shame it was so overshadowed by Stanley Kubrick's similar (albeit comedic) work.

Tense, scary, and filled with great performances.

Quite possibly the best depiction of the Cold War EVER made besides "7 Days in May" or "Dr. Strangelove". The paranoia, the mistrust of the era. The Soviets and U.S. locked in mutual suspicion. The President's end game is unthinkable.

The similarities from the comedy Strangelove and Fail-Safe, when watched back to back are astounding. One was a comedy, one a drama. The dialog and sets are nearly the same!

"During the early 1960s, Cold War tensions existing between the United States and the Soviet Union are heightened. An accidental thermonuclear first-strike attack by a group of United States Vindicator bombers (Convair B-58 Hustler aircraft) are launched in a mission against Moscow (the capital of what was then the Soviet Union)."---Wikipedia

Captivating, suspenseful drama, will leave most of you on the edge of your seats despite the retro clothing and sets. The appearance of the young and late Larry Hagman as interpreter for the President, Henry Fonda, are fantastic.

NOTES:

1 When Fail-Safe opened, it garnered excellent reviews, but its box-office performance was poor. Its failure rested with the similarity between it and the mutually assured destruction satire Dr. Strangelove, which appeared in theaters first. Despite this, the film later was applauded as a Cold War thriller.

2 Fail-Safe and Dr. Strangelove were both produced by Columbia Pictures in the period after the Cuban Missile Crisis, when people became much more sensitive to the threat of nuclear war.

Looks like it could be a good movie, will keep my eyes peeled.

Best thing I've seen in ages. Starts feeling a little cold and untidy, but the tension soon starts to build and doesn't stop.

Walter Matthau as a straight actor was astonishingly good at being evil and Larry Hagman did a fine job with the nervous translator.

Sorry Stanley, but I enjoyed this far more than Dr Strangelove.

Sidney Lumet keeps making great films through the decades. Just saw Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. Amazing to think of The Hill, 12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon... that's some legacy.
