The Cold Light of Day Reviews

This isn't great cinema, or even a movie you'll remember four hours later, but as stupid thrill rides go, it's smart enough to show you a good time.

Simply put, "Day" is a mess Cavill never rises above.

If there's anything positive to glean from Cold Light, it would have to be its use as an educational tool, teaching young film students how not to make a mid-budget action movie.

Empire Magazine

It exists basically as a long showreel for Superman-to-be Henry Cavill, who gets to demonstrate a mastery of run-with-a-gun acting and flex his leading man charisma without really breaking a sweat.

Relates more or less the same story as Spy Kids, though in this case the kid is in his late 20s and the spy stuff is much less believable or robust.

Bruce Willis was once our favourite wisecracking action hero. Now his movie career seems to be heading from Planet Hollywood to the dark side of Moonlighting.

The Ooh Tray

An occasionally involving, always brusque chase movie that doubles as a whirlwind tour of Madrid.

Liverpool Echo

A pedestrian spy thriller that casts itself in the mould of The Bourne Identity but falls pitifully short on every count.

[A] workmanlike slice of sub-Bourne hijinks...

The List

From the outset, The Cold Light of Day purports to be nothing more than a by-the-numbers action thriller. What's shocking is how it manages to take this predictable-but-sturdy template and sell it short.

There's the usual mixture of flying tables and chairs and various scrapes here and there while unknown director Mabrouk El Mechri tries to remember what he was supposed to be doing with the plot.

It all boils down to a series of riotously extended showdowns between Cavill and Weaver...

The one thing that's consistently fun to watch here is Weaver, whose prominent if surely rent-inspired role as a ruthless Terminator in pantsuits generates plenty of accidentally funny stuff.

The only thing shabbier than the dull, near-incomprehensible night-time cinematography is the shopworn script.
