The film's heart is in exactly the right place, but there's not a brain in its pretty little head.

A Dark Truth is one of those unfortunate projects whose component parts are immediately at odds with one another.

Pedestrian action scenes that wouldn't be out of place in a direct-to-DVD cheapie.

Can't come up with a single reason to recommend this leaden excuse for an eco-thriller, which one Damian Lee claims to have written and directed.

An interesting baby step toward a larger discussion of the water rights issue, but there's not enough integrity here to savor, with all the violence and cliche drowning out the lasting message of the movie.

Generic thriller has plenty of dead bodies, few surprises.

...never moves beyond a slow jog, even in what should be the most exciting moments.

This eco-thriller's message is an important one, but there are too many slow-moving scenes and too much screen time with characters just staring at each other.

A slog of a thriller that tries for relevance with an environmental message, A Dark Truth's biggest mystery is how so many "name" actors ended up in this torpid turkey.

For all the attempted intrigue and mayhem, the film is dullsville, mired by a poky script, unremarkable action and, the hard-working Garcia aside, uninspired performances.

A self-serious eco-thriller assembled with a competent but heavy hand.

A lightweight flick about a heavy-duty subject, A Dark Truth plays like a TV movie back in the days when TV wasn't worth watching.

There are many roads to hell, and A Dark Truth travels the one paved with well-intentioned efforts to wrap complicated social/political issues in genre movie clichés.
