Day Zero ★½ 2007 (R)

In this slightly futuristic fare, the U.S. military draft has been reinstated because of increasing terrorist acts. Three New York friends are called up and react to the news in different ways: lawyer George (Klein) asks his wealthy dad to help him wriggle out; insecure writer Aaron (Wood) thinks the military can make him a man; and cabdriver James (Bernthal) is patriotic and willing to serve. Overly self-important and formulaic. 96m/C DVD . Chris Klein, Elijah Wood, Ginnifer Goodwin, Elissabeth (Elisabeth, Elizabeth, Liz) Moss, Jon Bernthal, Ally Sheedy, Sofia Vassilieva; D: Bryan Gunnar Cole; W: Rob Makani; C: Matthew Clark; M: Erin O'Hara.
