For a hot-button issue movie with a lot of potential for character development, it's slower than Christmas and disappointingly sluggish.
Proves that even the most controversial of topics can be the basis for the dullest indie films.
Truth to be told, it's hard to care.
If the abysmal reception so far for films about the war in Iraq is any indication, Day Zero is the last thing movie audiences will want to consume.
As the pals, Elijah Wood, Jon Bernthal, and especially Chris Klein mope around noncommittally, as if it were an upcoming trip to the in-laws' they were dreading -- not a potentially one-way ticket to a war zone.
There's very little that rings true.
It's not a groundbreaking film, but I liked the gritty feel of it. It's a small, little movie that manages to be thought provoking enough for me to recommend it.
...an engaging little drama that benefits from the stellar performances of its various actors.
no one will mistake this earnest try for Medium Cool. Maybe just Smallish Cool.
Through portraits of these three men, [director] Cole uses the possibility to explore themes of loyalty and duty, masculinity, class conflicts and a youth culture gone soft and spoiled, at times slipping into political rhetoric.
Presents characters as concepts rather than actual people, and deals much more with the theoretical consequences of war rather than the actual human toll.
A film that revels in defeatism and hyperbolized dystopia; a would-be political statement that is more insipid than insightful.
This movie was really, really good, in my opinion. I was enthralled for the entire 2 hrs. I was amazed at how it all ended, also. Nice twist. This movie was well done, and well acted. An absolute gem, in my book.
This movie didn't impress me much, about the US Government starting the draft after 9-11 and gulf war. 3 Buddies get there draft notice and we travel thru time as the Days count down. We have the rich one, the cool guy, and the loser. Shows things they go through in the 30 day count down. Charlene Biton is a babe. It was pretty dry. Not sure how it got on my to see list. 2 1/2 stars, wouldn't watch it again, and it would have to be a rental.
