Critic Reviews for Miracle Mile
Miracle Mile has the logic of one of those nightmares in which you're sure something is terrible, hopeless and dangerous, but you can't get anyone to listen to you. Besides, you have a sneaking suspicion that you might be mistaken.
Miracle Mile grants us a poetic end in the face of absolute destruction. Someday, maybe, we'll re-emerge twinkling into the sun.
A master class in pacing and escalation, writer/director Steve De Jarnatt (Cherry 2000) crafts in Miracle Mile a John Hughes meets George Miller all-timer.
Its doomsday anxiety is more powerful than blockbuster disaster movies with much bigger budgets.
Edwards doesn't quite possess the gravitas necessary to authenticate the end of the world, but he holds Miracle Mile together amiably enough, such that we do actually care what happens.
Audience Reviews for Miracle Mile
An everyday guy stumbles into some big, big news: the bombs are on their way NOW. What follows are his attempts to get out of town by sundown clown. Only (and here is where my frustration with the piece begins) one thing or another keeps him from doing that. By the end I felt as if I was being denied satisfaction by a malicious little kid. Interesting, but ...
Space filler at one time on the old Movie Networks. This film has high ambitious and a ridiculously low budget. As a result, everything takes place somewhere else. It can work. What is not seen is often horrific..but it doesn't work here.
I picked this film to watch because of Mykelti Williamson, he was in two episodes of Miami Vice and I now want to watch all his films, In this movie he plays a very funny but short part. His performance is worth 4 stars. The movie itself is about a man who takes a call at a phone booth and is warned of a upcoming nuclear attack on Los Angeles, which will happen in 50 minutes, and in that time he must find his girlfriend and leave town, so starts the boring film, the only highlight is the performance by Mykelti Williamson. This one is worth 2 1/2 stars;
