Satisfying action thriller – Stallone shines
Daylight is a surprisingly good action/thriller movie. Stallone turns in a strong performance as the ex-head of an emergency service branch serving NY City. He’s now driving a taxi, and ends up trapped in this tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey.
The acting and directing were both pretty good for a smaller budget film. The director manages to achieve a decent amount of tension, and Stallone is able to show enough acting ability to make you believe he really is one of these calm heroes in emergency services who knows what he’s doing. The cast is interesting enough with a mixture of a family, an elderly couple, a young girl, an action hero (Vigo Mortenson), a cop, and several young convicts.
The movie at times seems like Poseidon Adventure, except the ship is this tunnel. The water is seeping in, things explode, electricity shocks you, the survivors try to escape. All good stuff. Then the ending is Hollywoodian, but I expected nothing less – this is a Stallone film, so just go with it, and you’ll enjoy this easy 100 minute crowd pleaser. Enjoy.
The Po-Sly-don Adventure
Geez, that cab driver sure knows a lot about rescue procedures. Hey, he’s Sylvester Stallone! Sly plays Kit Latura, a disgraced EMS hotshot who was fired for a major men-killing mistake (even though he’s still clearly the #1 guy in this particular line of work) and happens upon some major trouble. A couple of thieving imbeciles inadvertently cause an explosion in a tunnel under New York’s Hudson River, trapping a multi-culti band of survivors between a rock and an impossible place. Latura volunteers to shimmy into the proverbial hell and lead the bedraggled few to—say it with me—‘Daylight’. Would he have been as gung ho if he’d known he’d get so wet?
Label this one ‘Die Hard’ in a tunnel or ‘The Po-Sly-don Adventure’. In fact, director Rob Cohen probably screened ‘The Poseidon Adventure’ a few times while prepping his film. That’s my favourite of the absurd ’70s catastrophe flicks and ‘Daylight’ strikes the same notes, often successfully. There’s water and fire, rats and stereotypes, it’s dank and dark, and you’re never sure which mid-level movie star will die next. And credit where it’s due, there’s even plenty of pathos in the “we all gotta work together” vein and touching scenes of quiet humanity that stop an inch short of treacle. I was moved more than usual by a Stallone picture.
The movie made squat at the box office back in December ’96, but it’s worth a DVD rental for its solid craftsmanship. The F/X and sound design are money. As for the acting, the lead characters (Stallone, Amy Brenneman, Viggo Mortensen) aren’t especially memorable, but some of the lower-billed performers (Stan Shaw & Colin Fox, to name two) escape the movie with some dignity. The only real villain is human idiocy—people go where they’re not supposed to go and do things they’re not supposed to do. ‘Daylight’ is formulaic, but it’s still better than most disaster crap I’ve seen.
