    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.

    Well, I like that this movie commits to its premise and never backs down; I was expecting the main character to wake up at the end and find out it was all a dream. And I liked how crazy the movie starts to get towards the end. But the rest of the movie drops the ball on a very good premise, It's good, but it could have been great.

    This movie started in one frame of mind and ended in a very different one. This isn't a criticism, it's just worth noting that the film goes from colorful and fairly upbeat to chaotic and depressing over the course of its runtime.

    To my initial befuddlement, the film begins with a breakdown of humanity's evolution and segues into the blossoming of a romantic relationship. The two relevant parties are Harry (Anthony Edwards) and Julie (Mare Winningham). They meet one day…

    I'm a sucker for armageddon type films. Add in a Tangerine Dream score, general 80s awesomeness/cheesiness, and the fact that Harry wasn't wrong and the strike happened and I really dug it.

    WATCHED AS PART OF MY UNSEEN '80s PROJECT

    A film that starts off as one thing and becomes something completely different about half an hour in. At times quite tense, the film shows how society collapses in a short amount of time when things go tits up. It is let down a tad by some of the performances and I don't really buy the motivations of the main character. I don't get that he would risk his life for someone he just met but would keep the news of the impending doom from her.

    Anyway, not a cheery film but not a bad one either.

    "Miracle Mile" is a mixed bag with some tense moments that were nearly outweighed by the goofy characters. I was disappointed because this movie can't decide if it wants to be scary dramatic or funny. So it tries to be all three and ends up being just okay. I also tired of Harry (Anthony Edwards) running around to trying to find people. A few of the characters do some pretty horrific things and it is interesting to see the way society collapses.
