I was a naval aviator deployed aboard the USS Ranger (CV-61) when I
first saw this film. The show had aired back in the States some time
before the film reels (this was before video tape decks were
commonplace) were flown out to our Battle Group, so we knew that the
telecast had had a big impact on the American public before we had the
chance to view it.
That didn't matter. The film had as great, and possibly even more of,
an impact on those of us out on the "tip of the spear" as it did on
those back home. The military characters seen in the film were not
actors -- they were contemporaries of ours, some even familiar faces --
so we felt a true connection to the story. The tension between the US
and the Soviet Union was real and nobody knew better than we how nasty
things could get in a short period of time. Even as we watched the film
over the ship's closed circuit television system, Soviet military units
were intent on locating and targeting our Battle Group. Our job, our
daily routine, was part of the story, which emphasised the point that
we were responsible for keeping the peace and to not allow events to
escalate as we all feared could happen.
The reaction I remember most from this film was worry for family back
home. -SPOILER- The one airman who left the silo area to reach his
family before the missiles arrived displayed a sentiment that we all
felt. No one aboard our ship would shirk his duty, but we all
understood the sentiment that once duty is done, family is foremost in
The argument could be made that the film was rife with error, but I
maintain that it ultimately succeeded in what it was designed to
do...make people seriously consider the consequences of nuclear war.
That point was not lost on those of us aboard the Ranger at the time.
While I watched the film again just recently (21 years after the first
viewing), the lesson was still not lost. We may or may not be
vulnerable to such a massive strike as what was feared back in the
1980s, but nuclear terror is still a very real possibility. It is as
imperative now, as it was then, that we ensure that this type of
calamity is never visited upon anyone, especially those about whom we
love and care.
Yes, better special effects would make from some jaw-dropping images,
but would that improve upon the film's message? In my opinion, no.
