At the beginning of the movie, two lanes of traffic go into the tunnel, with a solid, double yellow line between them. This road marking doesn't necessarily mean two lanes of traffic traveling in opposite directions, but that passing or changing lanes is severely restricted. Signs at the mouth of the tunnel say "Stay in Lane" and "Lane Crossers Will be Summonsed". See more »
[as seeing a huge gush of water pouring into the damaged tunnel]
Excuse me Mr. Latura. But, are we gonna drown?
What's your name?
Okay, Ashley. I may find a way to stop this leak. So, it will keep us from drowning, that's the good news.
Okay, what's the bad news?
This water is 38 degrees. So, the only thing we have to worry about is Hypothermia.
Hypothermia. It's when your body loses heat and shuts down. When your body is getting tired, really, you're getting dead. Does that ...

Daylight is hands down Slys best work of the 90's, and ranks in his top movies made. It ranks under Rocky and Rambo. Many people think Sly is one of the worst actors ever. But he really redeems himself in this film with above average acting. He plays Kit Latura, a taxi driver who used to work in search and rescue missions. Well, on one night, a truck with explosive toxins falls and explodes. Collapsing and destroying the New Jersey Tunnel. Leaving only a few people alive inside the death trap.
Sticking to his favorite role, Sly wants to be the hero of the movie. Due to the cowardliness and pessimistic of the emergency and aid teams, its up to Sly to go in the tunnel and save the trapped civilians, and get them out of there safely. On this journey, you will encounter exciting thrills and suspense dealing with Stallone facing the toughest obstacles ever. Both physically and mentally.
You really start to feel bad for Stallone with all the crap he deals with in this movie. I feel that they did a good job with character development on Kit Latura. The character development for the other survivors are bleak to very descriptive....it ranges. The film has a very effective music score and pertains to the scenes well. The Special effects is above average for a 1996 movie.
Overall, this is a very entertaining film to watch. With explosive and hold your breath thrills. I totally recommend this films to Stallone fans, and i also recommend it to those who want a good hero, save the day, action/suspense movie.
