"Despite an unfortunate 30 minutes of dullness around the middle, The Man Who Stole the Sun leaves one with a desire for much more, thanks to the fact that this movie should probably end at two hours but then it goes completely bonkers and gives you all the things you never knew you needed to top off a movie about a guy building a nuke and not really knowing what to demand from his country to not blow it up. There's an earnest attempt in the end of exploring the mythology people like him are obse"

"3.8. Koulun tiedeopettaja päättää valmistaa atomipommin ja pitää Tokiota panttivankinaan tietämättä, mitä oikeasti haluaa vastineeksi. Valmistusprosessin huolellisuutta painottava opettaja suojautuu säteilyltä kertakäyttöhanskoilla ja mopokypärällä. Sitten hän pistää atomipommin uuniin ja unohtuu katsomaan baseballia kalja kourassa. Homma menee plörinäksi, mutta pommi saadaan lopulta kasaan. Tässä vaiheessa kuvioihin astuu huikealla innolla työtään tekevä yrmypoliisi"
