I'm not sure what I thought about this movie. Perhaps it's because I haven't been in an up mood for a while, but I didn't enjoy it, and felt very nit-picky. Harrison Ford found it impossible to keep a consistent fake-Russian accent, which distracted a lot from the movie. There were very obvious digs at the Soviet Union throughout the movie too, which seemed to be put in as it was an American movie. I have been told that the survivors of the real disaster were not impressed with the movie, and can understand why. I do wonder though, if it showed real reactions to radiation poisoning, that part was fairly horrific.
