Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The secret of a good disaster movie is to ensure that the victims hardly have chance to draw breath after one crisis, before another follows hot on its heels. Few have subjected the victims to a more sensational "frying-pan-and-fire" scenario than this Rank adventure, in which a plane crash-lands on an island, only for the survivors to discover that it is the site for an imminent atomic test. Considering there is only one outcome, director Guy Green sustains the suspense remarkably well, helped in no small measure by a sound cast led by Richard Attenborough, Pier Angeli and Eddie Constantine.
