HAL: "I'm afraid I can't let you not turn that key Dave. You must turn the key." 2001, A Nuclear Holocaust Oddysey.
I forgot how cool 😎this movie is. Way underrated.
Shit……scary. it's easy to say 'I would just do it' but really…..no one knows until they're faced with that moment for real.

1:56 "Anyone Caught Urinating in This Area Will Be Discharged" (sign on the wall).
I love how their casual opening conversation about growing plants immediately conveys that these two men have worked together probably countless shifts before this in the missile silo. And both actors perform phenomenally well during the later part of this same scene when their characters are each tested. A great opening scene to what is still an excellent film.
Killing the other operator would have made the actual launch mostly impossible begin that both keys needed to be turned to launch.
4:11 Destroy the world but "GENTLY" .
So THAT'S what Leo did before becoming the white house chief of staff…all this time I thought he was a pilot in the air force. Huh.
Who had the great idea to put Mr. Blonde in charge of nuclear weapons?
You would think that the guy who refused to turn his key would have gotten in big trouble, but it turns out he had a bright future ahead of him. He later became the White House Chief of Staff.
Kind of like that Eddie Slovik fellow who was convicted of desertion.
What happened to Michael Madson?😳🧐
Still miss John Spencer.
So if the one guy shoots the other, what good will that do if it takes two people to launch the missile? At the end they show smoke coming out of the missile why does it not just take off on its own?

Creepy that we have places like this all over the country.
Michael Madsen’s iconic voice doesn’t match his face in this movie, it’s strange. 😄
No wonder Leo drank, dealing with this kinda stress everyday. 😄
“BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! It was like a goddamn shooting gallery!”
Tense – great film
Are you gonna bark all day, sir, or are you gonna turn your key?
Thanks for sending me here Zach Braff
They run test firings all the time. The operators have no way of knowing if it's a drill or an actual launch of nukes, so there's no reason for them to defy orders since it's most likely a drill.
3:21 just something I want to put for next time
TURN YOUR KEY
He should have threatened to cut his ear off while dancing to Stuck In The Middle With You…
Damn, this is how you make an intense scene.
In case anyone does a remake, satire whatever…
How about a Mexican Standoff in the launch room?
According to some documentary I saw, which seemed rather plausible, the military hated Kennedy so much that they changed the launch code to all zeros. They wanted to be able to launch in case the President chickened out.
Not another Cuban Missile Crisis! Let em fly!
I would just like to point out how stupid it is to threat to shoot someone if they don’t turn the key. If you kill them, the missile def isn’t getting launched lol
Spencer and Madsen in 1st min and then later have such great careers in hollywood
TURN YOUR KEY SIR! Such a great scene and still gives me goosebumps even after all these years. 😲🔑🚀
THAT'S NOT THE CORRECT PROCEDURE SIR
Turn your key sir.
bee movie intensifies
Believe it or not we will witness a nuclear event between now and 2026
Funny though – if the younger dude shot the other one, the missiles most definitely would not fly because the launch keys need to be turned within two seconds or so of each other. (IIRC there is a documentary on Youtube somewhere that discusses this detail) And they are arranged in a way that makes this physically impossible to do for one single person, even if said person was 100% determined to go through with the launch. So there is nothing to be won by shooting anyone in this particular instance.
I was a little boy from the Bay Area when I saw this. This movie as well as vampire movies scared the crap out of me.
this was so scary for me as a teenager.
"Not the correct procedure" (to dislike this!) "God Damn" "Screw the procedure" Just "Give a big thump" to! 👍anyway. (Nostalgic Classic)
Because shooting him dead for not turning his key will make him turn his key more.
It says later on in the film that these guys failed. It never says whether or not one of them blew the other’s brains out or not.
What was the point of the guy pointing a gun at the other one (is that Leo from The West Wing)? Even if he did shoot him, that other key couldn't be turned at the same time as his own unless he had Go-Go-Gadget Arms! 😀
Love how the older guy is just drenched in sweat. I'd be pissing myself.
2:52 – Me going through the procedure to access the web-portal of my bank.
5:41 – My phone's battery dying just before I can to tap on the "Authorize access?" notification.
Where does the deputy officer take the launch code from?
"Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy? Or are you gonna bite?"
That sounds a bit like Casey Kasem.
