One of few Souviet action movies
This little action movie could be well forgotten now - finally, it is really not a gem of world's cinematography, but images of americans there are really memorable. I saw it first in Moscow cinema, being teenager, somewhere in 1986; recently I've seen it on TV, and realized with great wonder, that I really still can't find any flaws in "bad americans". Author go so far in their realism, that american missile base seems to be more technically equipped - say, I wouldn't expect such sliding doors with electronical code locks on our base.
Another noticeable thing is the fact that, AFAIK, this movie is THE ONLY Souviet film ever made which shows direct conflict between USSR and USA militaries, and even here, we have pair of quite positive americans. Compare it with endless legions of "evil russians" defeated by Rambo and other "heroes" in Hollywood movies.
