Despite having to wade through no end of sigh-inducing clichés, Sly actually comes off better here than many of his co-stars, a rather unfortunate result of...bit-part actors who may well have been dragged off the street and paid in ham sandwiches.

This is a nineties disaster flick that deserves more attention...

Still more millennial fear and commuter angst get routed through this toll-heavy disaster vehicle set in New York's Holland Tunnel--call it The Tunneling Inferno.

A lower-echelon disaster thriller, in which the best character is knocked off early on and the leading man runs out of ideas with a third of the picture still to go.

Cohen keeps the vehicle cruising in fourth gear, hoping the audience won't get too impatient with the familiar scenery. Big, efficient, mindless entertainment.

The best of the 1990s disaster-flick revivals, and certainly a solid effort by the usual standards of its star (Stallone) and its hack director (Rob Cohen).
| Original Score: 7/10

A disaster flick about a group of New Yorkers trapped in the Holland tunnel.

You know something is wrong when Stallone actually gives one of the best performances in the picture.

It will seem suspenseful only to those who wonder whether Mr. Stallone can get the dog out alive.

Far more entertaining than it has any right to be.

This new yarn about survivors of a tunnel collapse shows that it is still possible to deliver heart-stopping action, stunts and special effects without an Uzi in sight.

Almost works as an Irwin Allen-style adventure ... except it's really boring and all the characters stink.

A standard- issue disaster film that borrows conspicuously from both "Poseidon" and "The Towering Inferno."

Stallone realmente convence como um homem forte e susceptível ao mesmo tempo.

"Daylight" is persuasive in its action moments but puny in terms of character and dialogue. Anyone who expected anything else is probably in the wrong theater.

Alas, the movie can't trim its metaphoric bulk. Before long, daylight represents the viewer's reward for surviving this ordeal.

In typical Rob Cohen fashion, it does exactly what it says on the tin. But that's all it needs to be the visceral rollercoaster ride we all expect.

I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud at the wrong places.

Stallone gives it an earnest go, but "Daylight" makes one major mistake that will probably prove to be its fatal flaw. The film is almost completely without humor.

Though the explosion that seals off New York and New Jersey will have even curious theater concession stand crews bolting their posts, the characterizations are strictly low-cal.
