A Millennium ago

This movie has is 30 years old, but it looks like it has 130. Acting is poor, direction is poorer and script is bad. It starts as a romance, goes on as a farce and ends as a tragedy. A huge tragedy. Script writers should not fool their audience. If I am watching The Day After, I am prepared to what's going on. The screenplay is clever. You feel compassion for people in their generality. You feel sorry for Humanity. In this movie you should feel sympathy for single characters who will die in a small cloud of vapor. That is not fair to me. I did not like it. My wife was right when she said that old movies are at risk, unless they are masterpieces

This resourceful film is affecting and romantic in the most literal way and manages to be so against the backdrop of a nuclear attack. Neon lit and increasingly tense, ignore the few rough edges and you will be rewarded with an absolutely unique experience, if only more genre films were as original and sincerely offbeat as this.

A short review of "Miracle Mile" (1988)

"Miracle Mile" (1988) actually came highly recommended to me. And that's perplexing, because this is a pretty bad nuclear war thriller that I'd only grudgingly rate a 4 out of 10.

The script is terrible. We know that from the film's opening minutes, when it attempts to establish Anthony Edwards as a likable protagonist by showing him performing impromptu stand-up for schoolchildren on a field trip to a Los Angeles natural history museum. (He is not a chaperone for the field trip, or connected with these schoolchildren in any way. He apparently just hangs around alone at museums to inexplicably crack jokes for children he does not know.)

From there, we follow an abortive, cloddishly written romance between two mostly unappealing characters. (Mare Winningham is the other half of the romance doomed by the impending apocalypse.) I won't bore you with the details about the ensuing end-of-the-world thriller, except that an implausible plot device gives the nascent couple and a handful of secondary characters advance knowledge of the nuclear missiles that will hit Los Angles in just more than an hour.

Even the acting was mostly poor. Surprisingly, this includes the performance by Edwards himself, who has shown nothing but talent in every other role in which I've seen him.

The movie comes close to redeeming itself near the end. Its obligatory chaos-in-the-streets set-piece is surprisingly well done for an otherwise mediocre film, and there are a few good lines when the couple reunites at the movie's finale. I suppose you can also have a lot of fun spotting a bevy of other character-actors from the 80's and 90's.

I … can't actually recommend this, though. I can't remember the last time I was this disappointed by a film that my friends insisted was great. Check out 1983's "Special Bulletin," instead. Or, better yet, hunt down Britain's superb nuclear war mini-series, "Threads" (1984).
