No sanitized rendition of nuclear exchange offered here, it has not always been portrayed so raw and bloody; but this is accurate on what we were led to expect in the 60's. Duck and cover seemed so meaningless as I grew up 11 miles from the largest SAC bases in the northeast; nobody thought we would live through the first hour. This movie is a straight up 9/10; I don't need to watch it again.

this is one of those films that really stick with you over the years. Its terrifying because it could so easily happen in real life. Really thought provoking film. Check it out if you havent already watched it.

So... this movie is from 1984 and I watched it today for the first time. Holi fxck that was so real looking a few times it felt like I was watching some old footage it scared me. I kept thinking poor Ruth and I can only imagine what that ending looked like. That was so perfect. I'm so scared of that happening now than ever before. Good job. 5/5

I thoroughly agree with IVgeologists review. This movie is from 1984 - almost 30 yrs ago. I remember watching The Day After when I was a kid in the 80's and that one gave me nitemares. The threat of nuclear war was a fear back then, even living in Canada, it was scary. I found this movie even better than The Day After. Way more intense...depressing...bleak...the feelings that I got watching it are something else. I can't even put it into words. The fact that it's a 30 y/o film and it could all be relevant to this day speaks volumes. Not a pleasant watch at all, but well worth the watch. 9/10

Very depressing and moving film. Shows a very realistic what if scenario should the world unleash nuclear armageddon, which is still a possibility. This film is the epitome of an antiwar film. Perhaps this is why the concept of mutually assured destruction in a sense worked during the Cold War, both sides knew the wouldn't win and advisers probably warned of consequences as those shown in the film. Seems that in their situation the ideal position to be in would be armed security, at least you get food and you protect yourself. Does a good job of showing the longterm environmental issues that would arise and the breakdown of the social structure we've known. You have to live in the stone age without the comforts we are used to and are more susceptible to the realities of a harsh environment. One thing I started to wonder though is, how would events such as these affect neutral nations in somewhat more isolated parts of the world like in Africa, South America, or small lowly populated islands? They would suffer some environmental issues, but perhaps not the direct impact of a blast or fallout. Overall quite the thought provoking film, that should be watched by most as some point. We no longer face the imminent fear of nuclear war like during the Cold War, but this is still a possible scenario should governments decide to push the button at some point during high tensions in the future between nuclear powers. Heres hoping they acknowledge the peoples wishes and think twice before sentencing humanity to a fate like this. For what this film is 9.5/10

Thank you for sharing this movie with us....I beleive this would be very accurate or close to it on the way it would go down...I would really like to see a remake of this movie...The Day After just didnt do any justice for me...But this movie touched me in a way..5/5

Very dismal, depressing movie, and in a good way! It gives us the type of fright we look for in an end of the world movie. This movie has never been topped, not by The Day After, 2012, or any of the other doomed society movies! The only other movies that depict how society would become savages and the aweful things we would eat and drink to survive, are 28 Days Later, and a few other foreign movies. Threads is the absolute best, no one can do this type of drama like the British! You should also get the best Titanic move ever made and it was done masterfully by the Brits, it's called A Night To Remember! It really captures the mood and look and feel of the sinking of Titanic.

A wonderful but powerful, dark and thought provoking 'what if...' film about the ever present threat of nuclear war that still lingers over us to this day. Kinda strange though seeing my home city being fictitiously destroyed from the fallout :(

The most depressing, painful non asian movie I have ever seen. that said, it was done quite well, and even though it's a bit dated it's still very moving. If you don't mind being depressed. I can't really give it a rating though.

I remember when this first came out and it spooked a few people. Well worth watching though.

Realistic movie about the consequences of nuclear war. In that vein, it is the best of its kind. I would caution anyone who thinks this might provide any sort of entertainment, though. It's more of an infomercial for keeping our warheads in their silos.

Cautionary tale about the realistic preparations of a nation and the after effects of a nuclear attack upon a large city.I found it decently accurate for what would probably occur having been trained myself to respond to such an event in my community along with about 100 other volunteers in the area. The struggles and situations faced by survivors are appropriate and it takes one past the first few days exploring the long-term consequences for individuals, the community and what happens to the land as well. Included are natural consequences unpleasant as they maybe we may not even think about. Thought provoking,covering a wide range of points of view and it presumes that national events leading up to the attack would give a city time to prepare. Making the actions that individuals take all the more life or death altering. It even goes into environmental changes most people probably don't think about long-term and the impact it would have on people.3/5
