Countdown To Zero review

We’re all going to die. Arguably, we just saved you the job of watching director Lucy Walker’s depressing documentary about the world’s nuclear arsenal.

Revealing our frighteningly ongoing near-misses with atomic Armageddon, it’s a call for disarmament that’s too repetitive to land with the same impact as Oscar-winning eco-doc An Inconvenient Truth.

Sobering stuff, especially when smart talkingheads – including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and ex-US Secretary Of Defence Robert McNamara – confirm it’s a matter of “when” not “if”. Eek.
