Movie Info

An impoverished preacher who brings hope to the Miami projects is offered cash to save his family from eviction. He has no idea his sponsor works for the FBI who plan to turn him into a criminal by fueling his madcap revolutionary dreams. Based on 100 true stories, the explosive new film from Chris Morris is an emotionally gripping, laugh out loud thriller that exposes the dark farce at the heart of the homeland security project: It is harder to catch a real terrorist than it is to manufacture your own.

Critic Reviews for The Day Shall Come

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

  • In Christopher Morris' new satire, "The Day Shall Come," the stories of many people in the United States are condensed into one bitterly funny but dark comedy about the shortcomings of our justice system.

  • Morris has less command over the edgy material, positioning his modern-day Keystone Cops in a series of smarmy vignettes that don't cut quite as deep. But it still delivers a scathing and often very funny indictment of homeland insecurities.

  • Smart, bitterly funny, and probably too true for most Americans to bear.

  • Morris handles a delicate balancing act with an expected ease, the work of a satirist with so much to say yet with an awareness that saying less leads to so much more.

  • The film sizzles with an electric humor until, right near the end, it stops being funny at all, and aims right for the solar plexus with a punch fueled with righteous frustration and anger...

  • The Day Shall Come is a bold, compassionate addition to [Morris'] work.
