Synopsis:
High among idiosyncratic auteur Robert Aldrich's most powerful and intense dramas, 'Twilight's Last Gleaming' is a thunderous political thriller and race-against-time doomsday classic. Burt Lancaster stars as the Air Force general Lawrence Dell who seizes control of a stockpile of nuclear missiles to force the US President (Charles Durning) to tell the truth about the Vietnam war. As negotiations get ever more desperate, General MacKenzie (Richard Widmark) leads an elite fighting team into the complex to disable Dell and his team directly.

Nukem - Twilight's Last Gleaming review by dl

Spoiler Alert
24/11/2016

My god the first ten minutes of this and i was ready to turn it off, it just immediately screams low budget tv fodder 70’s style it really looked that bad, and what became more surprising was the cast which includes cinema giants Lancaster,Cotten and Widmark among the many others, who where all utterly dreadful delivering their lines of cheap dialogue in such a very tellingly and awkward manner, but here is the thing even after all this badness i just couldn’t bring myself to turn it off it became so moreishly fun and bonkers that i just had to see where this one was going and what the hell the outcome would be.Beneath its where not quite there cast and cardboard looking settings this nuclear nut job story had somehow got me hooked and gripped making it either the best worst movie I’ve seen or worst best movie I’ve seen i’m really not quite sure.7/10
