    In my opinion, this is the greatest cold war, nuclear thrillers of all time. The suspense is perfect. The ending leaves you sitting in silence. You'll never forget it. 14 years 5 months ago

    It's unfortunate that this film gets so overshadowed by Dr.Strangelove since it's just as brilliant in terms of the subject-matter. I think it deserves as much recognition as Kubrick's film.

    The difference ofcurse being that 'Dr.Stangelove' is a political satire and 'Fail-Safe' is a more serious thriller, they are both expertly executed on their own terms.
