Critic Reviews for Comes A Bright Day

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Aboud has a strong visual sense - the framing is precise, the colours rich - but with a threadbare, episodic plot, thin characters and uninspired dialogue, this soon outstays its welcome.

Time Out
Top Critic

Ultimately, Comes a Bright Day offers insufficient excitement and - like its incompetent robbers - once it battens down those hatches the film has nowhere to go.

The List

[An] ambitious but flawed heist-cum-love story.

Radio Times

Roberts turns in an interesting performance, but the film is treacly and contrived.

Full Review… | July 12, 2012

Props to director Simon Aboud for trying something a little different, even if things didn't quite come together.

Little White Lies

A charming and thrilling coming-of-age story packed with impressive performances and a charismatic dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Comes A Bright Day

"I was lucky enough to stumble upon this streaming on Netflix. It's a film that can logged under the following, comedy, crime-thriller, and romance. It has all of that going for it, including some quirky characters. The script is pretty good. The dialogue between the characters is the best part of the film. The bickering and bantering is quite funny. I really liked Craig Roberts in Submarine and he doesn't disappoint in this either. Imogen Poots does a really good job in this as well. They are my only purpose for pushing play on this film to start. But it ended up being a pretty good flick. I'd see it again."
