The Synopsis for The War Game (1965) 720p

The War Game is a fictional, worst-case-scenario docu-drama about nuclear war and its aftermath in and around a typical English city. Although it won an Oscar for Best Documentary, it is fiction. It was intended as an hour-long program to air on BBC 1, but it was deemed too intense and violent to broadcast. It went to theatrical distribution as a feature film instead. Low-budget and shot on location, it strives for and achieves convincing and unflinching realism.

The Reviews for The War Game (1965) 720p


This is nuclear war.Reviewed bylastliberalVote: 8/10

If you like horror films, you will absolutely love this film.

It was made for BBC television, but deemed too horrendous to show. It was later shown in theaters and won an Oscar for best documentary film in 1966.

You cannot tell that you are not watching real live news instead of a film. It shows not only the horror of nuclear war, but the fact that the government is not prepared in the least to cope with the evacuation and damage.

It has some really horrible scenes of death, but the most terrifying aspect of the film is the naivety and total lack of realistic expectations. The aftermath is a testament to the stupidity of nuclear weapons.

The film draws on the aftermath of Dresden and Hiroshima and Nagasaki for realism.

One has to realize that this was 1965 before we reached the level of weapons we have today.

This is a film that should be seen by everyone.

Surprisingly realisticReviewed bydownward_machineVote: 8/10

I saw this for a class in film rhetoric, and it was quite stunning. About halfway through, I began to wonder if this was actually a news report, and if there had been a nuclear attack in the 1960's that I had not heard about. I'm not kidding. I was feeling silly until someone else in class actually asked if it was real. The action was realistic, the mood was as though the incidents had already happened. It was very depressing, seeing with some certainty how a nuclear war might look up close, but potentially very valuable in that it likely rallied any who might have considered such a thing as an available option. Long story short: if you're the type who watches Frontline but can still appreciate T2, you'll get a lot out of this flick.

Too important to ignore, too powerful to dismiss.Reviewed byBaroqueVote: 7/10

Although this film clocks in at a mere 48 minutes, not a scene, second or frame is put to waste. A level-headed and all too analytical examination of civil preparedness versus the yield of nuclear weapons. What this film presents is the absolute horror of nuclear war in simulated newsreel footage so realistic, you may feel the pain of those on screen. Fire-storms, asphyxiation, flash-burns, over-burdened hospitals leaving victims to die in pain, street executions under martial law, total social collapse, all filmed in a typical English suburb. Originally planned to be a simple documentary on nuclear warfare made for BBC-TV, the film was banned from television (officially because of it's graphic depictions of suffering, but most likely for it's anti-authoritarian stance and defiance of the official line). Later released to theaters, it went on to win major film awards. Two scenes in particular, one of men being executed for violating water rationing and an interview with children at a medical camp, haunted me for days. This is the great-grandfather of such films as "Threads" and "The Day After", but the matter-of-fact narration in BBC English to the devastation on screen adds an element of sheer horror that no other film comes close to. If anyone you know talks about the survivability of nuclear attack, show them this film, and watch their reaction. This film is too important to ignore, and too powerful to dismiss.
