Movie Info

Miracle Mile starts conventionally enough, with bashful musician Anthony Edwards going ga-ga over waitress Mare Winningham. After a pleasant if somewhat quirky day together, Edwards and Winningham plan a tete-a-tete at the all-night restaurant where the girl works. While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a Midwestern missile silo. The message: nuclear warheads have been launched, and it's only 70 minutes to Armageddon! This

By focusing one frantic couple's attempts to salvage their future together it channels Cold War anxieties into something beautiful.

Mile still packs a wallop, especially when everything goes to hell and our lovers are forced to confront their mortality. The gorgeous, unbearable feeling of doom that De Jarnatt evokes is, well, miraculous.

Holy God, somebody showed me this depressing on my birthday long ago. I decided afterwards they didn't like me very much.

Shadows on the Wall

Surprisingly good little film, if too bleak to be any fun.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A strikingly original, if relentlessly bleak, nuclear thriller.

Flipside Movie Emporium

A low-key and unsettling look at one possible armageddon.

Audience Reviews for Miracle Mile

I picked this film to watch because of Mykelti Williamson, he was in two episodes of Miami Vice and I now want to watch all his films, In this movie he plays a very funny but short part. His performance is worth 4 stars. The movie itself is about a man who takes a call at a phone booth and is warned of a upcoming nuclear attack on Los Angeles, which will happen in 50 minutes, and in that time he must find his girlfriend and leave town, so starts the boring film, the only highlight is the performance by Mykelti Williamson. This one is worth 2 1/2 stars;

Dream-like story of a man's attempt to escape from a nuclear missile attack on LA. Plus a Tangerine Dream soundtrack.

Space filler at one time on the old Movie Networks. This film has high ambitious and a ridiculously low budget. As a result, everything takes place somewhere else. It can work. What is not seen is often horrific..but it doesn't work here.

This movie came on in the middle of the night and scared the hell out of me. Partially because it was so deranged and I couldn't figure out what it was and why I had never heard of it.
