When Kit tries to go toward the Mid-River tunnel to bring Roy back out, Kadeem grabs him from behind, wrapping his left arm around Kit's neck. George grabs Kadeem from behind and Kadeem reaches back toward George with both hands. In the next shot, Kadeem still has his left arm around Kit's neck. See more »
Okay we're high and dry and out of danger. Now, what we do'nt need is more suprises. Right?
Okay, Were high and dry. Now what?
Now, I may have a way where I can take down a part of that tube, that will seal us off from the fire and plug up that leak.
How do you plan on doing that?
I gonna have to use an explosive.

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.
