A master class in pacing and escalation, writer/director Steve De Jarnatt (Cherry 2000) crafts in Miracle Mile a John Hughes meets George Miller all-timer.
Its doomsday anxiety is more powerful than blockbuster disaster movies with much bigger budgets.
Edwards doesn't quite possess the gravitas necessary to authenticate the end of the world, but he holds Miracle Mile together amiably enough, such that we do actually care what happens.
Deceptively simple and relentlessly gripping, it represents American independent moviemaking at its most exciting and accessible for mainstream audiences.
The movie keeps viewers at the edge of their seats thanks to its propulsive score ... and realistic, practical special effects
De Jarnatt does a superb job of cultivating a vibe of bleak, apocalyptic hopelessness...
By focusing one frantic couple's attempts to salvage their future together it channels Cold War anxieties into something beautiful.
Monograph for MIRACLE MILE now available.
Mile still packs a wallop, especially when everything goes to hell and our lovers are forced to confront their mortality. The gorgeous, unbearable feeling of doom that De Jarnatt evokes is, well, miraculous.
Holy God, somebody showed me this depressing on my birthday long ago. I decided afterwards they didn't like me very much.
Ridiculous nuclear holocaust tale
An everyday guy stumbles into some big, big news: the bombs are on their way NOW. What follows are his attempts to get out of town by sundown clown. Only (and here is where my frustration with the piece begins) one thing or another keeps him from doing that. By the end I felt as if I was being denied satisfaction by a malicious little kid. Interesting, but ...
Space filler at one time on the old Movie Networks. This film has high ambitious and a ridiculously low budget. As a result, everything takes place somewhere else. It can work. What is not seen is often horrific..but it doesn't work here.
I picked this film to watch because of Mykelti Williamson, he was in two episodes of Miami Vice and I now want to watch all his films, In this movie he plays a very funny but short part. His performance is worth 4 stars. The movie itself is about a man who takes a call at a phone booth and is warned of a upcoming nuclear attack on Los Angeles, which will happen in 50 minutes, and in that time he must find his girlfriend and leave town, so starts the boring film, the only highlight is the performance by Mykelti Williamson. This one is worth 2 1/2 stars;
Dream-like story of a man's attempt to escape from a nuclear missile attack on LA. Plus a Tangerine Dream soundtrack.
