There are several things that make this movie a standout in the apocalyptic genre. Most notably the fact that the pivotal female character isn't just a badass that looks hot while fighting. She has a legitimate backstory and motivation that is truly compelling. I also enjoyed the fact that the movie doesn't insult you by explaining everything before the story starts. It's not a perfect film, but for an indie it's pretty damn impressive.

never really been into apocalyptic/horror films, decided to try this based on word of mouth - it is definitely worth watching. I recommend this without hesitation, and I'm a female senior citizen!!! :) :) You won't be disappointed.

This is a variant of the post-apocalyptic genre, though it was originally scripted as a zombie movie. With so many zombie movies being made lately the zombies were changed to a gang of cannibals and production began. This is not save it from becoming a straight to video release though. As these kinds of films go it was pretty good once you factor in its small budget; it's no Book of Eli or The Road and has to stick with a small group of survivors and a larger group of cannibals in an isolated farmhouse setting; no ruined cities or bumper to bumper lines of cars rusting away. If you lower your expectations from those kinds of things it's a taut and mostly fast paced drama.

This film divides audiences with some finding it too much of a character film than an action film, though once the action commences toward the last third of the film it's pretty intense. Conversely, some feel there is not enough character development and think the film needed to be longer. The biggest controversy involves the cinematography. The production team opted for a color-bleached look much like The Road and Book of Eli, but instead of their sepia look they took it further and made what is in most respects a black and white film. Yes, a little color comes through now and then, but this is still a black and white film and many people don't like that. The box is also at fault for not making clear enough just how black and white this is.

Dominic Monaghan (Lost; Lord of the Rings) was one of the producers as well as acting in the film and he is a welcome presence. The rest of the acting is good, with Ashey Bell's Mary a standout as a lady you don't want to mess with. There are a few surprises and a grim and somewhat shocking ending.

I've watched a few end of days movies. The Day After. The Road (very bleak). I didn't mean to rent The Day. I thought I'd clicked on The Five Day War. I'd previewed The Day and when it played after purchase instead of Five Day War, I thought Ok, I'll run with this.

As usual, character names have escaped my memory. Four friends have been roaming in search of food since some catastrophic event ended normal society years back. They once were 12, but the rest have died or been killed. The story starts with them miserable, tired and sick on the road. There is a 5th of their number, joined them later in their trek, and she is not as trusted. They find a house and take refuge but are afraid. One young man is very ill. The mystery surrounding the 5th comes out quickly. She is one of "them" (enter dramatic music). The house is a trap, set to lure them into the basement, where they think they find food, and spring the trap. The basement locks down with one of the three killed in the trap. A siren blares. They burn their dead friend to prevent him from being taken by their nemeses. Just like in The Road, cannibals also roam hunting their human counterparts to eat. It was the cannibals who set the house trap and now the cannibals who attack. The 5th member of their party once belonged to a cannibal band. She fights with them, however. The end scene might be the best in the movie. This is a bleak, violent yet poignant story of friends remembering their loved ones, who have died, wishing for the past, clinging to hope for a future. (and hunted by cannibals)

Variety says "The Day is one of the most effective horror movies made in years". Five people armed with guns and wits roam through the destruction of a post-apocalyptic wasteland that is now America. Earth's population has dwindled due to warfare planet wide. They find what seems to be shelter but in fact turns out to be a nightmare! If you like The Walking Dead or The Road, you will love this! A very similar concept!

Gritty, survival horror. People who like "The Walking Dead" will like this film though it has nothing to do with Zombies or anything supernatural. Just mankind's capacity for evil when survival is at stake. I rented this and would recommend it to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic survival films. The female lead was awesome and I think what I liked most about her is that she is not the prettiest girl. She felt realistic and like someone you might actually meet.
