      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The opening's got a great fiery explosion and Stallone puts in another earnest, sympathetic performance, but all else in Daylight feels designed to annoy the audience into submission.

      Blu B It's pretty standard stuff when it comes to disaster movies. The music is super forgettable. There is too many forgettable one dimensional characters that don't get enough devlopment. The first 20 minutes with the explosion is really good and the special effect and set design are the best things in this. But after that it slows down and never regains the franticness of the start with a lot of scenes that drag or are just boring. It feels like stuff just happens as they get out and Stallone really is in only half the film and doesn't get much backstory. What's weird is a lot of scenes just feel like they drag on even the Stallone only ones. Besides that yeah it's pretty standard by the book stuff of the disaster movie genre. Unless your a die hard Stallone fan most people should skip this. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Daniel M Definitely a unique story that felt relatable since we take that tunnel all the time in NYC. It had some thrilling moments. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/30/23 Full Review Michael W This disaster movie was great. Sylvester Stallone, Amy Brenneman, Viggo Mortensen, Jay O. Sanders, Sage Stallone, Danielle Harris, Stan Shaw, Colin Fox, and the rest of the cast did a great job in this movie. The plot of the movie was intense, dramatic, and insane. It's about doing everything you can to save people trapped underground and bringing them home alive. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. It's worth watching. Don't listen to the bad reviews this movie has gotten, everyone that said that this is a bad movie has terrible tastes in movies. They can't see why this is a great movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/16/23 Full Review Daniel Obra prima um dos melhores filmes já feitos, atemporal!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Steve D It has no surprises but is still entertaining enough. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review bernie h Excellent thriller action, as always Sylvester's performance is great. I can only say that any reason it would be rated less than 5 stars is , some expecting absolute CGI perfection, which wasn't used in the days this movie was made. This movie is exciting.

      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: C Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Todd McCarthy Variety A lower-echelon disaster thriller, in which the best character is knocked off early on and the leading man runs out of ideas with a third of the picture still to go. Mar 27, 2009 Full Review Nick Bradshaw Time Out Cohen keeps the vehicle cruising in fourth gear, hoping the audience won't get too impatient with the familiar scenery. Big, efficient, mindless entertainment. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight One of his final roles that managed some box office clout was in Daylight, a derivative disaster flick that has few actual thrills. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a solid entry within the disaster-movie canon. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 10, 2020 Full Review Adam Sandel Santa Cruz Sentinel As Daylight and other recent thrillers prove, it's much easier to create synthetic disasters, tornadoes, dinosaurs and dragons than it is to create sympathetic, believable human beings.
