A savage B-movie thriller with unrealized aspirations to profundity ...

Harbor only the expectations aroused by a production of WWE Studios and don't get too attached to any hobbits.

The film feels unbelievably long at 84 minutes, and the color-drained, hand-held cinematography serves only as a reminder of just how good "Night of the Living Dead" really was.

The Day's cannibalization of other, better films is its downfall; there's just not enough unique material here to nourish.

Despite being a nasty and skillful action film, Douglas Aarniokoski's film goes off the rails in the final stretch.

Glum, poorly acted, and hard on the eyes, The Day is a flat feature with a few spikes of absurdity that push the production into unintentional camp.

Could definitely have benefited from twenty more minutes of story.

Take Cormac McCarthy's The Road and cross-pollinate it with a couple dozen other more aggressively low-grade genre entries and the result is this very self-serious yet narratively unoriginal offering.

"The Day" cycles through bursts of horrific violence only to end much as it begins: static, hollow and vague.

Towards the end, you might find yourself thinking, "Well, this could have been worse." And you'll mean it as a compliment.

Once these tropes are established and have a minute or two to settle, that's when things get interesting.

Every day is gloomy in "The Day," Douglas Aarniokoski's film with a creepy, paranoid atmosphere that's more effective than the performances.

"The Day" is just good enough to engage audiences, but it falls well short of remarkable, leaving viewers wishing for a dawn that never breaks.
