The movie is never more than a hesitantly filmed recording of the play.

At times The 24th Day plays like a two-man actor's workshop. As navigated by talented actors and director, it nonetheless proves a riveting ride.

What might have proved reasonably compelling onstage comes across as forced on film, with credibility taking a back seat to contrivance.

Despite strong performances, this drawn-out Day feels like a cross between the claustrophobic play it once was, and the R-rated After-School Special it wants to be.

No amount of fidgety editing and anxious soundtrack atonality can distract from the creakingly implausible scenario.
