Emphatetic Topic, Awful MovieBy Witness from London, England , 25 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Two kids videotape their lives. They happen to have guns. They dislike people at school. Much, unneedless, dull interaction between characters +families. They go into school and kill people. The end. This is literally it. Dismal movie which I heard good things about, dreadful acting especially by the darker haired of the two characters. I'd really hate to watch this again. Avoid.

Quietly ChillingBy d1senior (3 reviews) , 08 Jan 2013The obvious comparison for 'Zero Days' would be Gus van Sant's lyrical, better-known 'Elephant,' though there are pretty fundamental differences between these two Columbine-inspired dramas. The main being that van Sant's work is at heart an ensemble piece, viewing the tragedy from several differing points of view. 'Zero Days,' by its very nature as a faux-video diary / found footage piece, focusing overwhelmingly on the killers only. I must admit I don't quite understand some of the 1-star 'OMG the most boring film ever' reviews on here: I've always found the mundaneness of evil and violence far more disturbing than showy action, and the sequences of the teenage killers simply hanging out and drifting through life here are bleakly electrifying.
zero funBy christof2009 (6 reviews) from Blackburn , 26 Dec 2009Zero Day is quite possibly the most pointless film I have ever had the misfortune to sit through. The fillm is well made for what it is but is still a totally pointless exercise. It is as if the filmakers watched a documentary about the events of Columbine & just transferred what they saw into a film with zero substance & zero entertainment value. If you are thinking of renting this movie my message to you is simple. Don't bother.
Somewhat chilling and revealingBy JustKewl (105 reviews) from Ipswich , 12 Sep 2009This is very good; for documentary, home video style film that is. The first hour plots out the boys moves towards there planned shooting at their local high school. It can come across as boring for the first hour (most of the film that is) but there are lot of interesting scenes involving other charactors, such as the boys families, several high school friends etc. If you're paying attention, can give you clues as to why the boys are about to do what they do.
The last twenty minutes of the film is actually very chilling. You don't see any gore, blood. Most of it is more auditory then visional the last part of the film. However, that's enough to chill you to the bone. A hard subject to cover in a film and, this film does a good job of it.
School MassacreBy a customer from LONDON , 17 Feb 2008This 'fake' documentary uses primitive video camera techniques to tell the story of two disgruntled High School kids who decide to carry out a 'Columbine School type' massacre. It's not as sophisticated as Gus Van Saint's 'Elephant', which covered the same story and it has some poorly constructed scenes in it. Yet both have the same problem. Neither of them comes close to explaining why the kids do this. As I type this comment yet another one of these incidents has taken place in the real world. Obviously the US hasnt found any answers yet.
GreatBy a customer from Northern Ireland , 01 May 2007Zero Day is brilliant. It is Columbine Massacre meets The Blair Witch Project.
The film/documentary is based on a fictional event. However after watching it you may think it is identical to what happen at columbine.
The two main characters, Cal and Andre, remind you so much of Eric and Dylan it is uncanny.
Although Zero Day is not a touch of Elephant but it is still highly watchable!
Recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about school shooting massacres.
