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.…
Sci-fi thriller which beggars belief it had $30 million spent on it. The idea of an invisible extraterrestrial enemy is a good one but the effects don't convince and the tension is non-existent. Strange really, as the director did a fair job building an atmosphere in his debut film RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR.
I applaud them trying to make something this silly. It just backfired horribly. I'm sure they wish they'd scaled it down into a low-budget release and I think it would've been treated kinder by the critics. This had no place being released on the big screen frankly.
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....
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…
The bro-ness in this film is real strong.
At some point, I saw this.
I've been meaning to watch it since 2011 for Olivia Thirlby and it is worth it only for Olivia Thirlby
I have to admit, I like this movie. It's not great, in fact, in a lot of ways it's pretty dumb and bad. Still, I come back for more.
I really dig the idea, and the design of the alien. I wish they got a little more screen time, but being invisible does make that difficult to explain in the narrative if you can see them over and over.
Worth a watch if you are a fan of alien attack movies, or just kind of stupid sci-fi action flicks.
I loved the experience on going to see this movie, meaning I loved everything apart from watching it. I was very impressed that Lee only needed to go to the toilet once before and once after - and not during! I loved the way Lee made profuse apologies to Will pre-film for what he was about to see. The Maltesers were amazing and the Frozen Coke absolutely incredible. Best part was the lads filling me in on the gossip about Rachel Taylor. Not to mention me showing of my car's subwoofer in the car park afterwards. A great night. The film itself however was total crap. Especially the ridiculous final act. Taylor was atrocious and looked like she'd been put…
Schade eigentlich den die Story hät potenzial gehabt, aber wurde doch zu sehr trocken umgesetzt. Die Dialoge waren ziehmlich lahm und auch wirklich viel Spannung war auch nicht vorhanden.
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.
I watch too many shitty romantic-comedies and direct-to-DVD horror movies.
