About this movie

A 80's teenager, bored by traditional high school subjects like biology but fascinated by computers, accidentally taps into the Pentagon's top-secret computer...the USA's NORAD system. He starts what he innocently believes is a computer game called "Global Thermonuclear War," but the "game" is real. The Pentagon's best minds cannot shut down or reprogram the supercomputer that is readying a missile attack against the USSR, and thereby unleash Armageddon. The teen and his girlfriend attempt to aid the helpless Pentagon and, in a frantic race against a ticking "doomsday clock," try to persuade the computer to end the "game."

I can't understand why the ratings are below 4 stars.I watched it when I was a child and it's a reason why I love cybersecurity today.It didn't aged well at all but it's still a little journey into the past.If you like technology and hacking you will enjoy this movie. It's not like reality but you still get this feeling of could it become real in the future?And also I am so happy computers don't beep and make sounds all the time like in old movies or else I would get crazy with all that beeping.
