AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Absurd yet anchored in knotty real-world themes, The Day Shall Come adds another bleakly funny satire to director/co-writer Christopher Morris' filmography.

Movie Info

An impoverished preacher who brings hope to the Miami projects is offered cash to save his family from eviction. He has no idea his sponsor works for the FBI who plan to turn him into a criminal by fueling his madcap revolutionary dreams. Based on 100 true stories, the explosive new film from Chris Morris is an emotionally gripping, laugh out loud thriller that exposes the dark farce at the heart of the homeland security project: It is harder to catch a real terrorist than it is to manufacture your own.

Critic Reviews for The Day Shall Come

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (20)

Witty and surreal, yes, savagely satirical and often chilling, but it's not really rolling-in-the-aisles material.

Top Critic

The Day Shall Come has a disappointingly similar approach, while tackling a much less edgy and altogether easier-to-trounce subject.

It's a diverting scenario, though maybe it doesn't quite have the "danger - high voltage" thrill of Morris's other works.

The Day Shall Come isn't prime Morris, but it's definitely not a total bust, either.

October 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Day Shall Come may draw from reality, but it fails to reflect it back to us with enough force to make us stop in our tracks.

October 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/5

Morris has already proved he can do lacerating mockery. At a time when we hear ad nauseam that current events are "beyond satire", making people feel something may be the greater achievement.
