Trouble strikes when runaway robbers in a getaway car hit truck full of explosives in the tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. Survivors are left in a weakened tunnel blocked at both exits. As Kit Latura approaches the tunnel, he sees the impact and knows he gotta take action. With time running out, he enters the tunnel through a system of maintenance walkways. Can he get the survivors out before the tunnel fills up? Written by
The tunnel sequences were filmed in Rome's Cinecitta Studios, on a set a third of a mile long. Cinecitta was chosen as the main studio set because of its enormous floodable sound stages. See more »
While George is lying in the hole with the vehicle on top of him. Stallone comes to save him. The rest of the survivors come from the same direction as Stallone, followed by Amys character (Madelyne). 1. She was with Stallone when George fell into the hole so shouldn't she have came before the rest of the survivors. 2. Was George yelling at Stallone about the other side of the tunnel, did he have the other survivors in between him and Stallone, but that meant Stallone ran past everyone to get to George first. 3. Did the other survivors run past the hole with George lying in it to climb down the same side as Stallone, before Madelyne arrived. See more »
Stallone returned after a break from action movies to make "Daylight." Here he tried to make his character more three dimensional, a human with weaknesses and flaws rather than the mute and destruction minded heroes of some of his other movies.
Making Latura as a human was a good idea, and you get to like him, although the rest of the movie doesn't quite hold up it's end. It plays as some cross between the "Poseidon Adventure" and an Irwin Allen disaster film, with an uplifting musical score. You know pretty quickly who's going to live and die, and even though Latura is a mere mortal, only he can save those lives.
Still, "Daylight" makes a good diversion, and the "good guy really is a good guy" concept works for the most part.
