As the film begins we see two men and a woman circling the Earth in a secret American defensive satellite of love (decked out with a number of nuclear warheads) called Project Nemesis (strange name for a defense satellite).Read more ›
A trio of astronauts orbits the earth in a top-secret defensive/offensive satellite equipped with nuclear warheads when the unthinkable happens down below. We don't see the atomic exchange, a good idea on the filmmakers part since omitting the mushroom clouds saves on the special effects budget, but we do see these three characters watching television stations going off the air as well as see computer generated explosions on maps. One of the astronauts, Howe (Tim Choate), predictably agonizes over the fate of his family. Touching. The other two are thick skinned about the whole thing, especially the taciturn Walker (John Walsch).Read more ›
I think that the cover is possibly the best thing about it. It starts off fairly promising but it seems like the director and crew either ran out of money or drive to finish the movie. It sort of peters out in a laughable finale of scenes that make you wonder if the actors were doing this bad on purpose. If you want more enjoyment than Defcon 4, you might try poking yourself in the eye because that is a more pleasant experience than sitting through it. So unless you have had some weird urge to see it since you were a kid, I would probably reccomend you skip this one.
(I give it three stars because it brought closure to this stupid childhood urge I had to see it)

I saw this when I was a kid, say 12 or so lol, been looking for it ever since, a classic if you're into B movies and scifi, if not then don't waste your time.Published 9 months ago by Michael
Don't get suckered in by the interesting cover artwork, which has absolutely nothing to do with the fime. I rented the VHS tape 30 years ago, and was incensed at what a POS it was. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Nagronsky
Cheesy, but still fun. If you are looking for classy Sci if, look elsewhere.

Classic B movie with scenes like the military truck breaking into the base just in time to stop one stars execution even though they were no were close by. Read morePublished on March 9, 2014 by Julia Elizabeth Sloan
The movie itself was at best camp. Poor story line, poor acting, disjointed plot. On top of that the qualify of the video sound was horrible. Read morePublished on January 14, 2013 by REDBuckaroo
