Audience Reviews for This Is Not a Test


It's a fine idea, but the film isn't executed well enough for it to be thrilling. I didn't like any of the characters, so the ending didn't effect me much. It ends, of course, the way you would expect it to. Overall, if it wasn't for the dumb characters and dull moments, it would be a good little atomic threat film.

This low-budget drama about a possible atomic apocalypse is stagey at times, but keeps your interest throughout. It reminded me, ironically of a film that came out the next year, "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" which also began with the meeting of strangers on a remote California desert highway

A good character piece that transcends the genre as we observe a small group of people preparing for "the bomb" (and I don't mean a football pass).
