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
Now that the Statute of Liberty has been exploited for alien invasions and natural disasters a tad too much, Americans shift their filming equipment to the chilling streets of Russia. If that's not enough, they go ahead to overwhelm the Russians, by showing how smart their kids are in planning as compared to Russian patriots (seriously when will this "war" be over?). And when the invisible villains bring in no exciment, it's just a series of boring expository dialog.
I guess the "darkest hour" here was me watching this boring shit.
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.
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.
Hubiese preferido que no se hubiesen llegado a ver nunca los alienígenas esos.
This movie is full of dull characters who say and do idiotic things and who have zero charm and zero personality. The aliens aren't any more compelling to watch. The plot contains nothing new or remotely interesting. I can't think of anything to recommend about this movie. It really sucks.
how illogical can a movie be... out of nowhere, Aliens come and start killing people and then lose the war because obviously the lead actor wins...
this is a mind fuck movie in a totally unpleasant manner
I watch too many shitty romantic-comedies and direct-to-DVD horror movies.
