The Darkest Hour
Survive The Holidays
The story tells of a group of young people who fight to survive in Russia after an alien invasion.
Some of these don't really work, I just hate this movie
If the aim of the film was for you to root for the aliens then The Darkest Hour is a roaring success. It is rare to be confronted by such abhorrent examples of humanity as we get here. Emile Hirsch, an actor I normally quite like, and Max Minghella play two of cinema’s most odious shits yet bizarrely they are the heroes of the movie. They are poorly supported by equally reprehensible and banal individuals that you beg receive quick (and hopefully painful) deaths.
Even at 80 minutes this film feels long and slow. Because the characters are so hideous there is no sense of peril or tension as it is impossible to care if they eventually meet their maker.…
Skyline might be bad, but The Darkest Hour is even worse.
Some might think it nearly impossible to make a film with worse acting and a worse storyline. But looky looky, how they managed just fine.
Oh well, if everything else fails, use more awesome CGI... oh no... wait... even the special effects sucked.
Right, this felt like having your brain lobotomised with a blunt knife by a three-year-old with poor motor skills.
Really, why do I keep watching this crap....
I can't even begin to explain how bad this film is. It's so bad. It takes a perfectly good genre, squeezes the worst elements from it and combines it in to a complete travesty. It really is a sorry excuse for a film and it's sad to say, because you can tell a bit of thought went in to this. Unfortunately, it doesn't work at all. The acting is atrocious, the script is dire and the effects are utterly appalling. The story is poor and the characters are unthinkably stupid and unlikeable. There are absolutely no scares here. There is no build up of suspense and no moments of tension. Don't even question if it's worth holding out for the "epic" ending; there isn't one. Avoid, like the Plague.
Generic and shallow, though moderately entertaining overall and not quite as bad as they've made it out to be. Nevertheless, it's sad to see actor Emile Hirsch go from a top-class indie like Into the Wild to something as mundane as this. At least his acting is somewhat decent though, compared to that of, let's say, Joel Kinnaman. I know I should be happy that one of my countrymen has made it into Hollywood, but it's a struggle when he supplies one of the film's most insecure and downright lousy performances. I shudder at the thought of him playing Robocop in the upcoming (and supremely unnecessary) re-make. I smell a Robo-flop!
Apart from said malady, we're also forced to endure…
There some genuinely cool ideas in this flick. Shame it ends up being some wannabe YA slopfest full of crap acting. The only upside here is that you really get to appreciate how far Joel Kinnaman has come as an actor.
Two and a half "mehs".
Perfectly adequate little space invasion movie. Keeps it simple.
Una película de terror fantástico apocalíptico acción mix no puede traer nada bueno con unos villanos que apenas se ven. Funcionan a secas en títulos como Depredador y se quedan justitos en aquellos de terror sobrenatural sobre "manchas", como yo los llamo.
Aquí no atemorizan pero la acción se desarrolla de forma lineal y correcta , siguiendo todos los pasos que esperas.
Espectacular inicio/" llegada" y poco más.
Ein Spass wie Zähneziehen, nur nicht so aufregend.
Unmotivierte, wenig talentierte Schauspieler, eine grottige Regiearbeit und ein Drehbuch aus der Billig-Retorte.
The premise of the movie looked ok but watching it I thought it just wasn't right.A group of talented (normally) actors just couldn't put this film right.Special effects were lame and I'm just glad it wasn't an overly long movie.The locale of Moscow was nice but most shots could of been done in a studio.The 3d part of it I don't understand because it wasn't a big movie and although I was watching a normal version there seemed very little 3d effects.Anyway most will pass this movie by so you're not missing much.
When aliens invade Earth, a group of survivors try to fight their way out of Moscow.
Russian / American SF movie that tries it's best, but it has all been seen before. The plot has is nothing new and though the presentation of the aliens has some nice ideas, everything just becomes very silly and the ending feels like a pilot for a failed TV show. The production values are quite good, with some beautiful exterior shots of Moscow. The characters are about as one-dimensional as possible and are played with varying degrees of woodenness by the small cast. The special effects are quite well handled, and the minimal alien design does work quite well. All in all this is not a bad movie, but the silly story, paper-thin characters and weak ending just doesn't make it very good either.
This movie is absolute garbage.
Good graphics, ends there.
Woww!! this films is dumb beyond words. I don't want to spoil the way in which they kill the aliens in this movie, but they might as well have kill them with piece of wood with a nail sticking out it and that would have make more sense.
There are also some leaps of logic that make no sense.
I watch too many shitty romantic-comedies and direct-to-DVD horror movies.

Every horror film that I have seen, Films that has horror as one of the films primary genres.
