Fail-Safe

Year: 2000
Studio: Warner TV
Director: Stephen Frears
Cast: George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Brian Bennehy, Hank Azaria, Don Cheadle, Sam Elliott, Richard Dreyfuss, Noah Wyle, James Cromwell, John Diehl
Mostly faithful remake of the 1964 nail-biter, broadcast live on US TV and released on DVD in Australia.

George Clooney showed a little of the early leftie politics that would eventually mark a large part of his persona in Hollywood (thanks to Syriana and Good Night, and Good Luck).

It mostly retells the story with a few inevitable stumbles that you expect when watching a stageplay or a live show. You're better off watching the original first.
