Review: Though it has a questionable agenda and is especially glib about the reasons for developing and using the A-bomb, this film does a couple of things pretty well. It explains atomic physics to the layman in a very clear if reductive manner, and it sports some of the most beautiful animation probably ever used for such a purpose. The film is amazing to watch for the amimation alone.
