The Day Shall Come

Critics Consensus

Absurd yet anchored in knotty real-world themes, The Day Shall Come adds another bleakly funny satire to director/co-writer Christopher Morris' filmography.

  • Witty and surreal, yes, savagely satirical and often chilling, but it's not really rolling-in-the-aisles material.

  • The Day Shall Come has a disappointingly similar approach, while tackling a much less edgy and altogether easier-to-trounce subject.

  • It's a diverting scenario, though maybe it doesn't quite have the "danger - high voltage" thrill of Morris's other works.

    October 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Day Shall Come isn't prime Morris, but it's definitely not a total bust, either.

    October 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Day Shall Come may draw from reality, but it fails to reflect it back to us with enough force to make us stop in our tracks.

  • Morris has already proved he can do lacerating mockery. At a time when we hear ad nauseam that current events are "beyond satire", making people feel something may be the greater achievement.

Audience Reviews for The Day Shall Come

  • Jan 19, 2020
    As funny as the first 3/4 of the movie is, it doesn't compare with the gut punch of an ending which reminds you that this "satire" is essentially reality now.
