    I've been on a few dates that ended in full-scale nuclear war as well.

    Not without a few plot holes, and a little bit of 80s cheesiness, it is an interesting story, nonetheless. Watchable.

    A low-key disaster movie soaked in believable paranoia, Miracle Mile reveals itself more as a West Coast After Hours than a shoddier Earthquake. So many high-concept ideas fall apart because they refuse to acknowledge actual humanity in the face of "movie" humanity, characters making decisions based on pre-conceived behaviors and plot mechanics. What makes Miracle Mile special is its askew POV on people in the face of crisis: who saves who? What would you take with you? What lengths would…

    There's a lot to like about this movie, but it's weighed down by a script that relies on characters making completely idiotic and arbitrary decisions to contrive drama and suspense. I really wish this was better, there's some amazing stuff in here.

    a wonderful mixture of all the good things like all-nighters, high concept sci-fi and Tangerine Dream.

    Tense and unforgiving Miracle Mile is one of the 80's hidden gems. However the excessively slow first act and low budget distract from what is otherwise a very compelling film.

    This was pretty fun. Not much more to say about it, as I saw it a movie night where we all made fun of it.

    Undersedd och underskattad. Stressig och tajt. Överraskande och originell.

    I was looking forward to a great cult film but to be honest I felt short changed here. It is a film suck in a time and has not dated well. The lead character just becomes annoying as does the story around them. It's not all bad news though there is a certain amount of tension and the pace is good. Just so dated.
