Sure, there is action and violence, but there is so much more.
Patrick M. Blackburn
The situations never merge well and the characters speak in philosophical pontification, so the end result left me feeling a bit cool and uninvolved.
K. Harris
Seems a lot of folk are championing this flick and I can't say as I see why.

I was pretty excited to have discovered the British comedy/romance/heist film "Comes A Bright Day" by Simon Aboud. With an appealing cast and an unorthodox set-up, the film has limitless potential. I thought I would absolutely love this quirky film as its ideas and themes really struck my interest. But, alas, there's something a bit off in the telling. In many ways, I thought the screenplay tried to cover too many bases and the film's tone is ever-shifting. It's not really a comedy, it's not particularly a romance, it's not quite believable as an action endeavor, and it falls a bit short as a character study. It is simultaneously all of these things and none of them! I well and truly hate when people say "I really wanted to like" something--but, in this case, I really wanted to like "Comes A Bright Day." And yet, it never really connected with me in any tangible way. The situations never merge well and the characters speak in philosophical pontification, so the end result left me feeling a bit cool and uninvolved.

The film has a terrific cast including Craig Roberts (from the underrated Submarine), the lovely Imogen Poots, Kevin McKidd and the great Timothy Spall. Roberts plays a luxury hotel employee with big dreams of success. On a menial errand, he stumbles upon the charming Poots who happens to work in a jeweler's shop that he needs to visit. Playing the big shot, however, to impress the lady doesn't go off as planned when armed marauders (including McKidd and a quite funny Josef Altin) stage a robbery. Roberts, Poots, and Spall (the proprietor) are soon trapped in a hostage situation.

I absolutely loved this movie. I had no idea what I was getting into when I turned it on, and was pleasantly surprised. "Comes a Bright Day" is a bank heist movie that is not told like a typical bank heist movie. Sure, there is action and violence, but there is so much more. The film centers on five main characters (two robbers and three hostages) who are thrust together after an attempted heist of a jewelry store goes terribly wrong.

The story focuses more on the characters than the dangerous situation they find themselves in, yet you are never allowed to forget that their lives could end at any moment.

I was caught up in the direction--the film was wonderfully shot. It was also hard to not get caught up in the beautiful Imogen Poots, who I hope to see in many films to come. She was stunning -- both in beauty and in her quiet, powerful performance.

"Comes a Bright Day" has it all -- action, crime, humor, love, loss, and coming-of-age romance. If you are looking for "Ocean's 11," this ain't it. If you are looking for a more cerebral thriller that focuses more on the characters than convenient plot twists, I highly recommend this movie.

Wonderfully entertaining. One of, if not the best films I've seen this year! Why haven't we heard more about this?
