Loved the film, but the soundtrack? Forget it.
9 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A friend of mine recently gave me a pirated copy of The Reckoning day from a Chinese man on Kilburn High Road, which I rushed home to watch. I have to say, I actually thought this film was brilliant so I rushed out to buy a copy from my local HMV. One thing the pirated copy had over the DVD release was the sound - I actually prefer the sound on the cam version because the soundtrack is less overpowering, probably due to it being filmed on a crap microphone. I felt that in moments, the suspense was ruined by strange key changes, weird screams(?!) and lots of mediocre strings. I felt the soundtrack needed more rhythmic basslines to really support the strength of this film.

Overall though, a thoroughly enjoyable film which I've recommended to everyone, and would watch again.
