There are no real laughs found in this short piece (actual story time is 69 minutes). Cross' character walks through the movie in a daze, at the mercy of the opportunism of every other character in the film. There is no character development and it is difficult to care about anyone in the story. I agree with the former reviewer that the film's intro held great promise, but the payoff from this setup never materializes. 2 out of 5 stars.

Format: DVD
In the first few minutes of the film, you know it is going to be a quirky indie filled with symbols and metaphors. The title of the film is a double homonym. There are also religious symbols with the names of Gabriel(messenger of God) and doubting Thomas.

Philip Katz (Joseph Cross) reminded me of Neil Patrick Harris in this film. The planet earth is going to come to an end because of the sun, yet it is business as usual. Politicians are worried about re-election and corporations are more concerned over profits than prophets.

Philip meets a street beggar/philosopher named Gabriel Peterson (Danny Glover). Gabriel dubs Philip "The Son of Morning" similar to the "son of man" title. Gabe spouts modern day slogans and truisms at Philip who stops taking his stress pills. During a church service, blood comes out of Philip's eye. He is immediately taken by a reporter (Heather Graham) and is proclaimed the messiah who will save the planet.

The film is overwhelmed with themes of aforesaid corporate and political wants, but is also critical of the media, the no talent celebrity status and those that cling to them and exploit them.

Religion is used as a template for the film, but I didn't see it as being satirized. The film incorporates numerous techniques to imitate the stressful and confused mind of Philip, most enjoyably, a giant Gerbil.

Smart, clever, filled with symbolism and metaphors for today's time. Not for everyone. If you like quirky films such as "Chumscrubber" you might want to view this one.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, brief sex, brief nudity, drug use.

In truth, I wasn't expecting much from the direct-to DVD comedy "Son of Morning." However, individual elements in this quirky piece work quite well. The premise, in fact, presents a fascinating scenario that with a little more development might have made a blisteringly funny satire about religion and fame in contemporary America. It ends up being a bit undercooked for my taste--and while not a total disaster, a dynamic idea is squandered in the telling. Still, this lightweight romp has an energy and an easy appeal. While not totally cohesive, certain moments stand out as quite amusing. My primary disappointment comes from seeing the potential that was not realized in the final product. Going in with zero expectation, I ended up rooting for this little picture and appreciate, at least, the intent behind the narrative.

In an awesome introduction, "Son of Morning" opens with an unexpected suicide followed closely by the news that our sun is facing imminent death. These two catastrophic events wreak havoc on our hero (Joseph Cross) who inexplicably gets branded as the savior of the planet. I'm being purposefully vague as to let the plot's surprises unfold naturally. The innocent Cross soon becomes a pawn in the end-of-days timeline and is being manipulated by the press, by politicians, and by an array of groupies. Even Cross is unsure what is happening--but there is no doubt that his celebrity status has changed his life forever.

As I said, the ideas behind the satire are sound. But everything is rushed and relatively unexplored. The film relies on too many short cuts instead of developing its theme deeper. Here's a classic cliche: When Cross is on TV, we get reaction shots from everyone else we've encountered in the movie watching him.
