Description by OLDIES.com:
We built a super computer with a mind of its own and now we must fight it for the world!
The ultimate computer creates the ultimate terror in this chillingly real sci-fi suspense thriller. When electronics genius Charles Forbin creates a massive computer complex that is capable of independently regulating the national defense of the United States, it appears that no enemy will ever be able to penetrate its sovereign borders.
But such a promising thought turns into a stunning nightmare when it's discovered the Russians have built an equally sophisticated computer and that these two "doomsday machines" have linked, sharing classified information and top secrets. Desperately, Forbin and his Soviet counterparts try to stop the all-knowing "monster" computers from seizing command of the world's nuclear missile stockpiles.
A U.S. Defense Department computer, named Colossus, develops a mind of its own and starts sharing classified information with its Russian counterpart, a computer called Guardian. A frighteninging believable thriller that was ahead of its time in 1970 and is still timely.
