Daylight [DVD] [1996]

Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Daylight looks about as good as DVD pictures are going to get. All the colors are even and bright with black levels solid. No imperfections of any kind are present during the film. This transfer looks beautiful and will please fans looking for the best possible way to watch Daylight. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is also as well done as the transfer. This 5.1 audio track packs a very nice punch and sounds excellent. Speakers are utilized on all sides, with the bass low and rumbling. All effects, music, and dialogue sound perfectly even with no distortion present. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track in Spanish, as well as English captions and Spanish subtitles. Although Daylight may not be packed to the brim with extra features, it does include a good batch of supplemental materials. Featured on this disc is an audio commentary by director Rob Cohen that tends to be a bit dry but informative; an hour-long documentary ("The Making of Daylight"), featuring interviews with the cast and crew; a music video for the song "Wherever There Is Love" by Donna Summer and Bruce Roberts; a still gallery; and some theatrical trailers and teasers. While opinions may vary about the quality of the film itself, Daylight nonetheless proves to be a worthy DVD edition for action film fans.

Synopsis


Daylight
Sylvestor Stallone comes to the rescue in this disaster/adventure picture. A truck containing dangerous chemicals explodes in the Holland Tunnel, trapping those New Yorkers not killed in the explosion. Authorities know there are survivors, but cannot figure out what to do to save them. Ruptured water mains and leaks in the tunnel itself, which is beneath the Hudson River, will cause it to fill with water in a few hours. Of all the colorful characters trapped there, only Roy Nord (Viggo Mortensen), a mountain climber, has any ideas about what to do, but he quickly dies while attempting to save the others. However, Kit Latura (Sylvester Stallone) is a former city Emergency Medical Services director who was in the area of the explosion, and he knows the tunnel's construction quirks. He quickly convinces city officials to let him wend his way through the tunnel's maze of exhaust fans to help the exhausted survivors confront the obstacles that await them. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    This standard action thriller stars Sylvester Stallone as a former medical services chief-turned-cabbie who impulsively goes back to his former profession after a mishap involving crooks causes an explosion to rip through a traffic-filled commuter tunnel beneath the Hudson River. He then risks life and limb to get through the rubble and pull out any potential survivors before they run out of air. Despite some nice SFX work, the film is predictable with Stallone giving us the same schtick he's been giving us since Rambo. The survivors are also stereotypes (a dysfunctional family, a group of convicts, a dog, etc.), &, naturally, there's a potential love interest for our hero (Amy Brenneman).

    Stallone's final action movie of the 90s.

    This was the last of Stallone's 6 big action movies in the 90s, which began with the man vs. nature thriller, Cliffhanger. This one is played more straightforward and serious. There is no evil villain to overcome. Parts of the film are very realistic in the human interaction. Other parts, are simply fun 80s style action. Stallone plays Kit Latura with a convincing world-weariness. Amy Brennaman is ok as the female lead, but forgettable. LOTR fans should look for Viggo Mortenson in an early role as an extreme sports celebrity.

    I only bought this to own this movie. I thought this film was very boring. It sounds a lot better and looks better, but still the same bad movie. Id pass on Daylight if I were you.
