A launch detection shows a full scale Soviet Strike and General Beringer (Barry Corbin) orders the move to DEFCON 1.

Once more, a wise-guy teenager tries to prove he’s smarter than any adult-and nearly destroys the whole world in the process-in Wargames. Computer-game aficionado Matthew Broderick inadverently taps into a hush-hush Pentagon computer, then proceeds to inaugurate his favorite game, “Global Thermonuclear War”. What we know, but Broderick doesn’t, is that the Pentagon, hoping to eliminate the chancy “human element” in the event of an actual war, has given its computer total, irreversable control over the launching of nuclear weaponry. Broderick and government official Dabney Coleman race against time to reverse the computer’s resolve to send bombers to Russia. Wargames scored a hit, especially with teenage filmgoers.

  1. I forgot how ride-or-die that driver was.

    "Is this important?" "It's really important." "I AM CRASHING THROUGH THE GATE!"

  2. Damn they had balls making this movie while the war was very much still in everyone’s minds

  3. This happened in real life when a computer was playing a simulation which they didnt know-it was playing,therefor they went through all the launch procedures but then did not go through with launch.

  4. One of my absolute favourite movies. It was certainly #1 on my list as a kid. LOVED IT. Still do.

  5. The Great Star of Command & Conquer Red Alert Series!

  6. Whitey Durham, before he retired from the military and be ame a simple high school basketball coach.

  7. So in trying to outrun the blasts of a dozen nukes, you proceeded to crash your car TWICE and end up as the last victim in the road safety statistics of human kind. Congratulations, Sir

  8. Fun fact: the jeep wasn't supposed to roll over, they were supposed to drive straight to the main entrance. Director John Badham kept it in and filmed the shot of David and the others running the rest of the way.

  9. Early 80's movies had much more believable computers. Gotta love how actual prop programs had to be written for them rather than just every screen having a trippy CGI sequence made in a compositor that says "HACKING… 54% COMPLETE"

  10. The Official Ennomerian Commonwealth says:

    Everybody loses, but one loses the least.

  11. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 4:5, Jesus Christ is the only way, KJV.

  12. I think the funniest thing is probably how he’s wearing his uniform with the jacket open

  13. That guy is pretty fat and slovenly to be a 4 star AF General.

  14. "After the gates are closed no one gets in or out."
    Certainly didn't seem like it when they smashed through.

  15. I forget the exact details to the story, but the government actually had a nuclear war simulator where they had a false alarm giving the impression that a real attack was inbound and here it was someone had left a tape of such a simulation playing by accident. Scared the crap out of everybody there though initially, they said thank God the President hadn't been in there on say a tour at the time!

  16. Absolutely one of my favorite movies as a child.

  17. I kept thinking… the Pentagon has the worst security in the world. They even left the suspect in the room with a computer, with direct access. XD They didn't even bother to read the messages from Joshua to find the address, a clue to where he might have been heading.
