Daylight [DVD] [1996]

Release Date:05/27/1998
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.

    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
