Audience Reviews for Radio Bikini
Sobering, concise documentary made up almost entirely of old footage, surrounding the U.S. decision to test an atom bomb over Bikini Atoll.
I like this Documentary a lot, but it certainly is not an Oscar material. It is emotionally manipulative. Nice editing though, but there weren't any original material, just footages after footages of the oldies. Possibly only enjoyable for the hippies and leftists. God Bless America.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary, this film tells the story of islanders that were pushed off their land (Bikini Island) and thrown on another island by the U.S. government so that we could test one of our nuclear bombs on it. It remained dangerously radioactive for the next 40 years. The footage here is real from the entire process of explaining to the islanders they need to leave (Hollywood style and in their non-native tongue) to the men watching the blast from nearby, to sailors investigating the carnage afterward- not realizing how dangerous radiation was. You can guess how it ends. Glad this stuff comes to light, although it took 40+ years.
