Charles S. Dutton,
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
One reason Sylvester Stallone agreed to act in this movie was to help him overcome his fear of confined spaces. He'd agreed to appear in Cliffhanger (1993) to help him overcome his fear of heights. See more »
When George looks at the security camera and tells the control room to cut the power, the camera glass has 5 cracks. When Kit looks at the monitor screen from the control room, the feed shows 7 cracks. See more »

Keep trying you piece of shit. Keep trying. You've killed everybody else. You know what, you haven't killed me.

I have found your heart, and I'm gonna blow it right out of you

By 1996, no-one held out much hope for a Sylvester Stallone action movie. Where Daylight scores is by bucking expectations and being a good old-fashioned disaster movie. The opening scenes are spectacular, as we are introduced, one by one, to a couple of dozen protagonists, who all then enter a New York tunnel and get blown to smithereens. The rest of the film concerns the survivors' efforts to get free, aided by Stallone. It's a lot better than it has any right to be, and uses all the genre cliches to its advantage.
