Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"These are respectable intentions, but, unfortunately, the film is too slight in dramatic structure and too prosaic, really, to carry much punch."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"This terrifying account of life under the fear of nuclear war successfully illustrates the harm undue panic and thoughtlessness can provoke."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Um triste retrato da paranóia que dominou o mundo (especialmente os EUA) durante a Guerra Fria - e que, nos últimos anos, vem ganhando uma lamentável sobrevida."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
