Critic Reviews for Light of Day
A pure time capsule of '80s rock 'n' roll energy. Joan Jett is perfectly cast.
Your typical 80s nightmare. Fox does NOT work as a rock star.
Not bad for a movie tainted by "workin' man" Springsteen.
The "Back to the Future" sequel couldn't come any sooner
Audience Reviews for Light of Day
A rare film, apparently and one that showed us all what Michael J Fox could do. Joan Jett though deserves a mention too for one of her rare movie appearances and for providing the soundtrack.
Most of the characters are quite flawed individuals, but they create an interesting dynamic with one another. Having Joan Jett and some hard rock was also pretty cool.
Classic 80's rock n' roll with a strong supporting performance from Joan Jett, who shows some very real and very surprising acting talent. Fox is good, and Rowlands milks the melodrama for all it's worth. Only one scene feels really off, and that'd be when Rowlands and Jett reconcile right before Rowlands kicks the bucket. It feels incredibly cliche, forced and awkward. It doesn't ruin the film though, and Jason Miller comes in during the next scene and shows both Jett and Rowlands up with a heart wrenching moment that comes as another stunning surprise. All that, plus some fun music and a title song written by Bruce Springsteen makes Light of Day a really rewarding watch. Now if they could just secure the rights for a blu-ray release.
