ABC has started a new series "Day Break" with a two-hour "movie" Wed Nov 15, 2006. The gimmick this time is that the protagonist Detective Brett Hopper (Taye Biggs) wakes up and lives the same day repeatedly, trying unravel a mystery of his being framed for the murder of a DA. The film has a bus crashing into buildings early on, echoing a tragic wreck in Washington DC in the 1990s when a woman sitting in a barber shop lost both legs. The film goes off into the space of shady government interrogation techniques, where he is masked. How often has someone wanted to relive a day and do just one thing differently. Not to be confused with the 1996 film "Daylight" with Sylvester Stallone, reviewed here.
