Deterrence

We watched Deterrence last night. I had heard good things about this movie where the President of the United States, isolated by bad weather is confronted by a situation where he may need to use nuclear weapons.

The reviews I heard implied that it was a very good, tense psychological drama. I was sadly disappointed. The movie had a decent premise and a decent cast. The failure of this film was the ridiculous dialogue and a clear lack of understanding of some of the political issues the movie is trying to deal with.

As a result, I will have to say that this movie was only mildly diverting. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 64.
