I have no idea how realistic THE CHINA SYNDROME is, but I thought the story was great and I was especially moved by Jack Lemmon's performance. He was so intense that at times you almost forget you're watching a movie. The near meltdown scene was awesome. I do wish the ending had been different and maybe a little more substantial, but aside from that I was on the edge of my seat a few times.
Strong supporting cast, quick pace, pure 70's opening credits, nice photography, no musical score and no need for it, Michael Douglas with a beard, pre-JURASSIC PARK cup vibration, naturalistic direction and another home run performance by Jack Lemmon. I say check it out.
