Another TV movie but with the billed cast, you wouldn’t even know it. Everything George Clooney does is fantastic, incredible actor. So is Don Cheadle, their chemistry is admirable.
Fail Safe basically all takes place in one room, which is something I have grown to love over the years. It really forces filmmakers to have to tell a good story in a creative way.
This is a Cold War film made in 2000 but some of the military mechanics felt almost like science fiction. It added another layer that I wasn’t expecting.
It’s really well paced and almost always tense. The ending really drives that home, seriously dark. My only one partial complaint might be (and I’m not even sure about this) the final frame. It feels both chilling and ever-so-slightly goofy.
Anyways, definitely check this one out if you’ve been following along this month and enjoy these Cold War TV movies.
