A nearly perfect thriller with one huge downside and absurdity in the form of an absolutely unbelievable part of the plot: a no-body in the form of a lowly CIA analyst cannot only convince a high-ranking US military person to let him communicate with the Russian president (during the midst of the beginning of a nuclear war between the USA and Russia nota bene (!)) , no, he can even convince the president to abort further nuclear attacks on the USA. Absolutely rubbish and I will never understand what director Phil Robinson and his colleagues where think when coming up with this particular aspect of the plot!
