24th Day back to product details

Surprisingly good

The production value is not high, which hits us somewhat starkly for the first 15 minutes or so (bar scenes and such feel cheesy). Then the plot starts to unwind and by about 30 minutes in, my boyfriend and I were saying, "This is actually really good." The actors do a pretty phenomenal job, and the balance of tension and exposition works well. The dialogue and plot regularly stray towards what you think will be cliched or stereotypical, but then complicates everything again. Hence: surprisingly good!

it was okay

Both actors are completely believable and provide intense performances. Feels like you're watching a play because most of it takes place in one apartment. There is nothing sexual about this movie. It is all drama with some suspense thrown in because you're not sure where it's going. Parts of the story unfold with flashbacks. Worth watching.

Anybody interested in the subject of responsibility--to those we profess to love and those we choose to have sex with--will want to see THE 24th DAY. Kudos to heartthrobs James Marsden ("X-Men") and Scott Speedman (TV's "Felicity" and "Underworld") for agreeing to make this movie, which wouldn't have seen the light of day without their relative star power to garner a small theatrical release. Basically a two-hander, the film's simple plot moves at surprising speed with little, if any, fat to trim. Based on a play and offering excellent dialog--highly believable with little needless exposition--the director hasn't bothered to "open it up," which is just fine, since this movie NEEDS its tight confines. Speedman is excellent, but it's Marsden who's the revelation. This gorgeous guy, who could easily coast on his beauty but proved an adept comedian in the under-seen satire "Sugar & Spice," here offers ample dramatic chops as the fellow who may be the victim--or the perp. Every moment between these two fine actors seems utterly real: no small feat, given the bizarre situation. Add this one to your queue.
