Movie Review: Right at your Door (2006)

This is my first movie review, but I told myself why not. It's fun reading about survival techniques, medication equipment and theory on radiation, but watching a little movie is also fun. I chose to write on ''Right at your Door'' specifically because I really liked the movie and it is up to some point very realistic in the terms of government reaction. I'm telling you in advance, I will not spoil the movie for the people who did not see it, so don't worry I'll won't tell you the punch lines. However, I strongly suggest you go see it because it is an awesome movie that clearly depicts what happens when terrorists strike and the government is not prepared. Being prepared yourself could be of great help if something like this happens and it will. In the bottom of this post I've included a chart of the failed terrorist plots in the US since 9/11. It is all compiled in a nice chronological chart with the manes of the people arrested and their targets. It's not because there has been no successful attempts that we should let our guard down, it's just that they have not succeeded luckily for us, until now.

In the movie, a dirty bomb goes off in Los Angeles, and sends radioactive and other unknown substances all over the city and it's surroundings. The story concentrates on a couple Brad and Lexi and how they live the horrible event. For all the survivalists out there, you will able to see your good share of gas masks and haz mat suits. Like in any terrorist event, law enforcement and the government agencies are seen running around like headless chicken not knowing what to do with the people injured in the blast and the people affected by the fallout. The shopping craze right after the bombs detonate can be seen and again is very realistic from what has been seen in natural events seen in reality in the US. Government tells people to listen to the radio for updates on what to do, which like expected are contradictory from one place to another. When panic of a biological attack sets in people start to be shot and drastic measures are taken by the government which isn't quite sure what to do to contain the virus. I won't say anymore about the movie, go see Right at your Door and use it to plan for what YOU would do if a such thing happened in your city.
