Incredibly suspenseful TV movie. There seems to be hoards of these nuclear bomb TV movies from the 80’s (obviously) and they’re all surprisingly decent.
The acting in Special Bulletin is really solid and the situation itself, although farfetched, quickly becomes very realistic and panicked. The real life news anchors professionalism exemplifies all the suspense tenfold. It’s a sick pleasure of mine seeing news anchors try to keep their composure during tragedies, there’s something very humanizing about it.
I don’t want to spoil anything but the very last say 30 seconds or so of this film are way too relevant to todays media or well, media in general. The world is pretty shitty in general but films like this really remind me how lucky the we are to have never experiences nuclear war on our home soil.
