FAT MAN AND LITTLE BOY (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Fat Man and Little Boy, at certain junctures, can be a bit obtuse in its storyline as it lacks uniform transitioning. However, its ability to link story with educational value cannot be denied. Casting department chose Paul Newman, John Cusack, John C. McGinley and Laura Dern to make the main acting team. That mix works for this movie. Watch for Dwight Shultz who played Murdock on the 1980s A-Team television series. This movie is an interesting interpretation about the making of the atomic bomb.
