Zero Day is one of the best and most shocking non-Asian movies I’ve ever seen. I saw it during my first year of high school with some friends and I was simply in awe all the way through. One of the things that made it have such an impact on me was the fact that I was told by the friend who brought it, that it was put together from real footage and was something similar to the Columbine shootings. I actually felt sick to my stomach when the two kids Calvin and Andre finally attacked their school at the end of the movie. I call it a movie, because it’s not real, it’s just made to look like it’s real and wow, does it do a great job! I was fooled that’s for sure. Everything in the movie seems so ridiculously real it’s not even funny, but man it’s a fascinating movie.
The movie is called Zero Day, because two boys refer to the day they’re gonna attack their school “zero day”. And I like how they choose the day to begin with; by waiting for the first day they say on the radio that it’s zero degrees outside. That doesn’t happen though because Andre gets sick, which is another thing that sounds so realistic. Anyway, awesome movie.
ZERO DAY was the code-word that two students used to describe the assault they planned for over a year, and which they finally executed on May 1st, 2001.
On that warm and beautiful spring day, Andre Kriegman and Calvin Gabriel, two students of Iroquois High School, walked onto to their campus with three semiautomatic weapons, a shotgun, a revolver, at least twenty explosive devices and several knives.
ZERO DAY, the movie, brings us into the world of best friends Andre and Calvin.
Self-named the “Army of Two” they used video cameras to record everything relevant to their final “mission.” Their video diaries provide a window into their chillingly ordinary lives, and as we get to know them we become seduced by their intelligence, their humor, their directness, the inward and outward expressions of their adolescence, and their terrible single-mindedness.
And here’s a music video set to a song by Rammstein.
this fucking movie is amazing.
