Film Review - The Day

The Day is a survival horror set ten years after the collapse of civilisation, a small group of survivors are trying to evade tribes of cannibals and survive. It's filmed in a style of many similar films with a washed out colour palette. The story is fairly simple with a couple of minor twists, but nothing too surprising.

The group are reasonably well played, there's a good dynamic within the group, although how they managed to survive for ten years is a bit of a surprise. It's paced well with keeps going until the climax.

Overall it's quite entertaining, but doesn't really stand out in any way. If you're after a post apocalyptic film then there are better choices out there and worse ones too.

Robert Rodriguez s prodigiously talented protégé Douglas Aarniokoski directs THE DAY, a relentless and visceral action horror, in the vein of MAD MAX, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and FROM DUSK TILL DAWN. Open war against humanity rages. Five survivors - lost and on the run. The pursuit is relentless, the bullets are dwindling and the battle is everywhere. THE DAY has come.

The Day is available from Amazon (and is an ok watch)
