Miracle Mile

Overview

Miracle Mile starts conventionally enough, with bashful musician Anthony Edwards going ga-ga over waitress Mare Winningham. After a pleasant if somewhat quirky day together, Edwards and Winningham plan a tete-a-tete at the all-night restaurant where the girl works. While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a Midwestern missile silo. The message: nuclear warheads have been launched, and it's only 70 minutes to Armageddon! This unsettling news casts ...

While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a Midwestern missile silo.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
A charming little flick that combines elements of Night of the Living Dead, The Towering Inferno, and The Morning After into an improbable date movie, Miracle Mile gives Cherry 2000 filmmaker Steven de Jarnatt another chance to prove that a decent cast and a cool premise are more valuable than millions of dollars in special effects. The best classic science fiction stories favored compelling what-if scenarios over razor sharp prose. In the cinematic equivalent, we get workmanlike production values and a heck of a concept: What if you accidentally intercepted a phone call that alerted you to impending nuclear war? Anthony Edwards and Mare Winningham are the everyday youngsters whose tentative romance gets interrupted by the imminent big bang, and their winsome appeal goes a lot farther than something more high-octane. Meanwhile, a rich collection of character actors including Star Trek: The Next Generation's Denise Crosby provide expendable supporting players and lend the race to infinity its sociological scope. Any movie predicated on a nuclear countdown is bound to end on either a downer or an unexpectedly giddy note, but the game cast and tight little script keep the audience guessing right down to zero.

    A remarkable little gem

    Flawed, but a gem nonetheless. How would you act and what would you do if you knew that your world was going to end in a little more than an hour? De Jarnatt turns a light romantic comedy into a statement on World War III. He accomplishes this in a most clever way. Once events begin to unravel, they do so in real time, with the digital clock at Johnnies Coffee House on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles keeping track of the countdown. The hapless protagonists' actions, words, and encounters are like those of a cartoon world, with people doing things which are totally counter to their best interests. Many of the people themselves are like cartoon characatures. Harry, the main protagonist even ponders whether it could all be a dream? The intensity not quite flawlessly builds to an incredible climax. Yet, the whole is more than the sum of the parts. In spite of its flaws, I have rated it all five stars because it is that memorable of a film. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a widescreen copy of this. The DVD is presented in 4:3 full screen format. The sound track, composed and performed by Tangerine Dream, does an excellent job of keeping ones heart thumping as the tension builds to the film's climax.
