...a misfire of impressively epic proportions...

Reel Film Reviews

A modestly sketched episode of The Twilight Zone with its visual ambition peddle pushed all the way to the floor, the early woozy, pop-art hold of this brooding, passably eerie two-hander unravels considerably in its final half.

Thomas Jane punishes himself as both director and star, in this erotically charged, paranormal noir hallucinatory honeymoon horror Nevada desert road movie. Not to mention that what happens in Vegas in no way stays in Vegas for its unfortunate characters.

Audience Reviews for Dark Country

While I respect the effort here...this film just tried too hard to do and be too much.

There are some great visuals and the (Twilight Zone-ish) story that's at the heart of the film is fun and interesting, but most of it's potential is lost in the convoluted mess that surrounds it.

"At the End of the Road... The Nightmare Begins"

A couple en route from Las Vegas are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride.

REVIEW
Thomas Jane directs a film that shows more promise than actual success. Its a Noirish tale about a honeymooning couple who who accidentally run over a man staggering in the desert, stop to help him only to have everything go horribly wrong when the man turns on them. From that point on it's a descent into hell as things get complicated on every level.

Give Thomas Jane points for making a good looking film. Give him a few more for getting some really good performances from all the actors. Unfortunately he looses a few for making an often tedious film. The pace of the film is often so slow that the film would cause you to nod off if you didn't want to know what happens. I don't know if the conclusion was worth the ride, but it kept me watching. That's about all I can say.

Worth a look, but I'd wait for cable.

Visually pleasant but tedious, unsatisfactory and lacking of any energy film experience.

I don't know why people didn't like this film.
Dark Country is visually stunning, and the plot while not the best is certainly one of the more unique storylines I have seen in long time. Thomas Jane is very impressive in his directorial debut, and gives a really great performance in front of the camera as well.
More people need to watch this movie, it is better than some may have you believe.
