New York Times:
"The Day" cycles through bursts of horrific violence only to end much as it begins: static, hollow and vague.
Every day is gloomy in "The Day," Douglas Aarniokoski's film with a creepy, paranoid atmosphere that's more effective than the performances.
Los Angeles Times:
"The Day" is just good enough to engage audiences, but it falls well short of remarkable, leaving viewers wishing for a dawn that never breaks.
A savage B-movie thriller with unrealized aspirations to profundity ...
New York Daily News:
Towards the end, you might find yourself thinking, "Well, this could have been worse." And you'll mean it as a compliment.

New York Post:
The film feels unbelievably long at 84 minutes, and the color-drained, hand-held cinematography serves only as a reminder of just how good "Night of the Living Dead" really was.
Harbor only the expectations aroused by a production of WWE Studios and don't get too attached to any hobbits.
