One of the most unusual films with Sylvester Stallone, who allegedly divided career the first part, which is famous for a number of thrillers and militants, and later, in which is dominated by thrillers and drama. "Daylight" Director Rob Cohen at a time and very high quality Thriller, and pretty pathetic story about not surrendering Americans have become hostages of the disaster and the human factor. After a good tale about the heart of the dragon, the Director has decided to put the remake of the film in 1987, which he was once produced. It turned out ambiguous. Those who loves creativity Stallone and any disaster movies, the movie should be like. But here's a particularly cynical spectators and those who thinks Stallone is an actor in one role, probably not. On there are reasons.

Begins "Daylight" is very dynamic. With a very entertaining pursuit, high speed. A couple of crazy criminals, for whom was chased by the police, managed to cause a fire in the underwater tunnel, bringing people in it was walled up with two sides of the collapsed concrete slabs. Time and oxygen of hostages quite a bit, but fortunately a witness to the accident was the kit Latour in performed by Stallone, who previously was fired from the rescue services, but still knows the schematics of that tunnel. Therefore, the salvation of people for him only a matter of honor, but also a way to atone for a past mistake that cost the life of his employees. At this time sly saves not peace and not even the country and only a handful of victims, of different ages and status. The emphasis is not on action, which has upset many fans of the actor.

And it is strange, because Rob Cohen movie that is good at action, and any dramatism in his films look like something of a stretch and not very convincing. Exceptions can only be considered a successful and entertaining "fast and furious", although there the script is not without flaws. But "Daylight" without Stallone in the title role could be passing, weak Thriller-a disaster for a TV show. First, a lot of attention is paid to the helplessness of people in extreme situations. They rushing, crying, swearing, shouting, and only the desperate professional kit can help them out of the trap that every fifteen minutes throws up new mischief. Frankly not successful was the attempt to present it as the work of the elements, especially when the character Stallone yells for concrete blocks with clay which pushes another batch of explosives. In short, the heroism of the authors a little guess.

Here include a crazy time with a black man, trapped beneath the machine — the absurdity of film by Rob Cohen in any way could not be expected. With a rescue dog too lame, but wherever was. Yeah and whole of characters, in addition Stallone, interesting only climber-show-man in the performance of Viggo Mortensen. Others like for the crowd, it looked as though the main character is really someone help. Of the advantages — a great soundtrack and high-quality special effects, given that almost all the action takes place underneath the earth. But despite all of the above, "Daylight" personally, I like it because it is another opportunity to Stallone to prove that he has played in all genres. Lifeguard kit was not Superman and just a brave man with remarkable endurance and courage indispensable. It always deserves respect.

In my opinion — just a quality Thriller that neither what would not was so no Stallone in the title role.

When people fall in the enclosed space was overwhelmed by feelings of danger, the survival instinct can be a destructive force if there is not will need support.

In the morning, several dozen residents of new York are not suspected their lives can be ended under the depths of water and concrete. In one of tunnel there is an explosion and the collapse. People find themselves in a trap. To him off a former lifeguard. The opening scenes are very competently accents. We show people that will soon be in the trap of circumstances. The constant feeling of a closed space sometimes produces a depressing effect, so that is good to know that it's just a movie. And Sylvester Stallone in the main role leads to the idea that this story will have a happy ending. In General, we have a story about how people are trying to get out from under the collapse. No complicated plot twists, yeah they are not needed. An important component is the relationships within this little society — people are scared, they were driven angle. There are criminals business and family children. Local attraction events does not make bored: a collapse of rocks, flooding, fire, electricity. All this must be overcome by heroes. It's amazing how massive the sets were involved in some scenes.

You would be on the place of the heroes of this film, so enjoy this spectacle with Sylvester Stallone in the other side of the home screen, in the security a Cup of tea.

Several times during the film, I want to say: "this man!" Stallone actually plays just Superman, which people dogs in General, all save!

The plot is simple, a lot of inconsistencies, but the film is really cool. A movie you need to watch in rainy weather with girl popcorn. In it has some kind of magic American fighters of the 90s years.

Actually, if you like all of the above me, it safely watching a movie. He you will love it.
