Audience Reviews for By Dawn's Early Light

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.

It definitely feels like a TV movie, but it's engaging and has some good performances. It's nice to see that James Earl Jones received a promotion after Dr. Strangelove.

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.
