Synopsis

Rebecca Ryan works as an undercover agent for the Organised Crime Division (OCD), posing as a taxi driver while investigating London's south-side mob. When she finds her young daughter Lynn brutally murdered she fears her cover has been blown wide open, so she turns renegade and begins a brutal campaign of vengeance against the mob she believes killed her daughter. As she trawls the seedy depths of London's underworld hunting down her daughter's killers, the lines between good and evil, right and wrong begin to blur as do her notions of justice and revenge. It falls to the world-weary OCD agent Darius Cruise and his newly-assigned, hot-tempered partner Abby Barrett to track down Rebecca and bring her in before all hell breaks loose.

Production notes

  • Although incorrectly described in the British Films Catalogue as having been shot on 35mm film[1], Bad Day was in fact one of the first independent feature films shot entirely in the UK using the Panasonic AG-HVX200 P2 camera.
  • Notably this was the first acting performance in a feature film from Sarah Harding of the popular UK girl band Girls Aloud[2]. Owing to release schedules her subsequent appearance in St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold was released to the public before Bad Day.
  • When it was decided that Sarah Harding's character in the film should have long, dark hair a wig was used to cover her distinctive short blonde crop[3].
  • The visual FX supervisor for Bad Day had previously worked on The DaVinci Code, commenting that the number of individual FX shots he completed on Bad Day exceeded those on this previous film. SVFX included greenscreen driving scenes, muzzle flash and squib/wound/blood enhancements, mic/wire removal, digital scene enhancements and day-for-night image manipulation.

Reception

Bad Day was released as a direct-to-video release on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK. Despite its low-budget indie pedigree it has received consistently favourable reviews on sites such as DooYoo[4], Cineology[5], Lovefilm[6] and Filmdates[7].
