The China Syndrome Reviews
It got a quite slow start, but it turns very good for the later half. It looks pretty good for it's age and it's still fairly relevant 35 years after it's release. Top acting from Lemmon as well and it got a vibe that shifts from thrilling stuff, political stuff and more dramatic stuff. An actor called John Pancake was in it too. What a name.
6.5 out of 10 Fernet posters.
Even without the message it's an entertaining movie. The only performance that really stands out is Jack Lemmon. He does a good job of looking like a conflicted man that you feel sorry for. It's fun watching him freak out while running around pressing buttons like Dr. Frankenstein in his lab. He's also in a thrilling car chase that's probably the films main highlight.
It's a good movie, but it would have been better if it didn't state what side it's on in such a shameless way. It takes the impact out of the message. After just watching the movie for the first time I'm not afraid of power plants, but I would like to play in the control room. It's a good thing I don't own a nuclear power plant.
