Terrible-Math is more like it.
1 July 2018 | by mhorg2018See all my reviews

If you're going to make a low budget film, especially about a nuclear war, one should try and hide the inadequacies of the budget. This movie, about two astronauts {there were 3, but one gets killed during the landing) returning to earth after a nuke war, does none of that. It's a terrible little movie full of bad acting and has a contrived plot. One of many post-nuke films to come out of the 80's.
