I received the product, but the whole 'get it within the next 48 hours using Prime' was a bogus as one could endure. Days turned into well over a week and some.

The only reason I made the order was to get the products in time before I departed. I was actually delayed in going and still did not get some of the overall shipment, and what did arrive was a nightmare to actually get.

So ... Prime was a waste and I hate, Hate, HATE ... I LLOOOOOOOAAAATHHHHeeeeee UPS.

Otherwise, the products were as advertised.

Excellent Remake of a Chilling Movie June 25 2007
By Mark R. Garner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As someone who grew up in the shadow of the Cold War, this movie has always intrigued me. A truly scary premise especially now that the machines have taken over (sorry, that's a Cyberdyne joke).

This made-for-TV remake was broadcast live in 2000 and I was most impressed. I am a technical flaw-spotting fiend and I only spotted one glitch - I'll let you find it.

The plot is already explained so I'll address the cast - well chosen, and the production values - top-notch. Live TV is most unforgiving and this was pulled-off in good fashion.

Sadly this scenario has been supplanted by terrorism but nevertheless, for those who recall the truly excellent 1964 version, this modern take still manages to grip you with suspense. Once I finish this review I am ordering a copy. You should do the same.

Intense, poignant, and flawlessly performed Oct. 18 2012
By Aaron Oleksa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Fail Safe" is a story of a Cold War turned hot as the result of a simple technological glitch. A very minor equipment failure accidentally triggers Armageddon, as the United States' automatic nuclear deterrent systems set in motion events that, once activated, cannot be undone. The star-studded cast gives chilling, edge-of-your-seat performances as the world rushes to avoid worldwide nuclear holocaust.

The first few minutes of "Fail Safe" appear to be slow and mundane, but the pace soon quickens to breakneck speed. Don't look away, don't blink, don't even wipe away your tears; you'll want to watch every moment of this tale. And then brace yourself for the jaw-droppingly shocking ending! This film is a must-see for every movie buff and cinephile out there! Fantastic!

Can you appreciate live? That is the question Sept. 13 2009
By Pauly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Recreates the look and feel of live B&W television, back in the day, beautifully. As if there was a extra high quality episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents produced live in 1960. But in fact, it actually is live television. Which made it all the more impressive and interesting to me. I watched it live years ago and enjoyed it even more this time, without all the commercials. The atmosphere has a certain tension which I found to be fascinating. Bare in mind that this is nothing like a movie. It's like a stage play, but spread out over a large television studio with several separate sets. Nobody gets 19 takes to get it down perfectly. The overall effect will appeal to serious drama fans in particular I think. I can't stop myself from giving it one extra star for sheer originality. Fine performances, dialog, and pace. A unique and entertaining film. I don't know of anything else remotely like it.

Both the 1964 movie and the 2000 made-for-tv are great July 25 2013
By Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have both the 1964 movie and the 2000 made-for-tv on separate DVDs. Both are great productions, if for different reasons. The original movie was made during the Cold War, and hence, may be more dramatic for those that lived it. The made-for-tv version adds the intensity of a live production and more modern production techniques. I can't say, in my mind, that one is better than the other, they are just different. The actors and crew in both versions created a compelling production with thought provocating consequences. Buy one, buy both, either is worth the experience.

Classic Life Television July 5 2007
By Daniel L. Whitaker Sr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I ordered this DVD I expected a movie production. I don't know where I got that impression but when I watched the opening credits I remember feeling disappointed, cheated almost to the point of stopping the DVD. I am glad I didn't. It took a few minutes for me to adjust to the medium in which I was experiencing art. I am old enough to remember Studio 90, Hallmark Hall of Fame or even life productions of Howdy Doody and situation comedies. This DVD put me back in an art form that does not exist anymore and I miss it. I have read the book and now experienced the live television production. A classic with modern applications
