In this taut, low-budget drama, a heated office argument is abruptly curtailed by a terrible disaster that leaves the four contentious participants trapped in a nuclear fallout shelter. It all begins within a large Manhattan bank when Rachel, an ambitious young executive, terminates long-time employee Dan for approving a bum loan. She then informs him that the man who recommended the loan, Will, is taking over his job. Joseph, Dan's personal assistant swears that it is all a surprise to him. The situation is about to explode when a fire alarm sounds and the building begins shaking horribly. In a panic the four flee to the basement where they end up in fallout shelter. Terrified and confused, with only a single water bottle to sustain them, the foursome try desperately to survive while figuring out if the rest of the world is intact outside their prison walls. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

It Ain't Pretty by JJones9 June 7, 2012 - 11:48 PM PDT
Fallout, the movie, is worth seeing if you do not expect to sit back and be entertained. Trying to understand how these characters, for the most part, wholly desert each other in their time of mutual need, requires thought and patience; this movie is a lot like homework. The office situation described in the opening scenes reveals some ignorance of how banks and corporations work, however. Boards of Directors typically don't make hiring and firing decisions at the loan officer level; making one bad loan is not likely to get a loan officer fired, as bad loans do happen; there is no discussion as to why this loan was unsecured, as it apparently was. Listening to the version of the movie with the artists' voice overs indicates that these are talented people who really wanted to turn out a quality product, and who worked well with each other. That Fallout would be their final product is disturbing, indeed.
