Left only with 'Why?'
2 January 2008 | by hmd-ramiSee all my reviews

It blows me away that such good directing and editing work were put into a story that lacks the basics of what it takes to achieve what it aims for.

So many characters that occupied significant parts of the film had virtually NOTHING to add to the story, and the causes that supposedly drive the plot were either badly overblown or completely unrelated. The level of disconnectedness actually puts to question the otherwise fine acting of almost everyone in 'Day On Fire'.

Come to think of it, I had another issue with this film...why is it called 'Day on Fire'? Even on a symbolic level, nothing really was on fire!

In short, nothing is connected and nothing is clear in this film...hence your left with asking yourself the question...'Why?'
