Tense Altmanesque thriller
18 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Obviously a homage to the narrative style of Altman i.e. Shotcuts, Day of the Sirens is an intelligent well written pot-boiler with some surprising flourishes and powerful action sequences. At times disjointed but on the whole very engaging and entertaining, kept fresh by sometimes startling plot twists and a couple of large set pieces that are very memorable. The DVD I rented had disappointingly few DVD extras as such, for those curious to know more production information, you won't find it unfortunately on this release. I really liked the artwork though, would be curious to see original film poster. Curiously little press around this UK release, for some reason a well kept secret, four out of five!
