"Days" terrifically evinces those days' timorous uncertainty of whether Red dread over ending the world matched Yankee angst. The knowing glances at its conclusion speak volumes: The planet's lucky break had only to do with random chance.

Suspenseful and efficient--to the point that it feels like a soulless, though remarkably well-calibrated, machine.

Mesmo recriando um incidente histórico, o filme funciona bem como thriller político e traz duas ótimas atuações de Greenwood e Culp.

Why hire a star, or 'allow' a star to hire himself, and then give him nothing to do? Why hire a star who doesn't seem able to do much to begin with?

The story is so gripping and the ensemble performances so dominating that Donaldson really manages to disguise the fact that the movie is just a succession of conversations between middle-aged white men.

Walking out of the movie, our historical knowledge was improved only a whit - now we know the entire shebang lasted 13 days. And I knew that from the preview!

A fitting dramatic tribute to the deadly brinksmanship that pulled us back from the edge during the most volatile two weeks of the Cold War.
