THE MANHATTAN PROJECT (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Stars ììì

The Manhattan Project—an interesting film—features John Lithgow as one of the actors. The story’s line seems a little improbable, but it’s a clean story.

Paul Stephens (Christopher Collet) and his girlfriend, Jenny Anderman (Cynthia Nixon), work up a plan to take plutonium from a secret lab, make a bomb, and show it at the New York Science Fair. Dr. John Matthewson (John Lithgow) finds the missing plutonium and knows Paul has to be the thief because he had access to the laboratory.
