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.

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 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.

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

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

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

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.
