Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

"There may be no tomorrow. There maybe no this afternoon". So goes the narration for this lacklustre Cold War fantasy spawned by the nuclear jitters of the 1950s. A missile launched somewhere in Eastern Europe circles Earth and, after destroying Ottawa with the heat generated by its 5000-mph speed, homes in on New York. Scientist Robert Loggia invents an atomic counter-missile to destroy it but a battle against time begins when juvenile delinquents steal its vital warhead. Perfunctorily directed by William Berke.
