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.

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

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

"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.

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.
