Deterrence (1998)

Deterrence, Rod Lurie's directorial debut, two years in the works, repeats the many overworked cliches of the nuclear paranoia pics of the early '80s, but comes nowhere near the achievement of kiddie classics like War Games, Fail Safe, The Longest Day, or even the melodramatic made-for-TV event, The Day After.
