Should never have seen the light of day...
2 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That is how bad Daybreak is. Of course there may be some novelty value if you're in a good mood, but if you are screaming with laughter it is because of how unintentionally funny the movie in its awfulness is. Daybreak is very poorly rendered visually, it is very choppily shot and edited and the effects look as though they haven't even been finished. The sound doesn't do any favours either, coming across as bizarre and the lack of audio authenticity dilutes any terror anybody is meant to feel in this situation because the threat is instead unthreatening. The dialogue is cheesy and inane, and there is nothing exciting, surprising or suspenseful in the story with listless moments that are so ridiculous you can have £10 for each time you laughed(you'll probably find yourself at over £1000). The characters are annoying stereotypical cardboard cut-outs, especially the loudmouth constantly looking for a fight, and the acting is dire with a mixture of over and under acting and nobody even Roy Scheider can do anything with what they had to work with. In conclusion, an awful, unintentionally hilarious movie that should never have seen the light of day. 1/10 Bethany Cox
