Darkest Hour (2017)
Critic Consensus: Darkest Hour is held together by Gary Oldman's electrifying performance, which brings Winston Churchill to life even when the movie's narrative falters.

Critic Reviews for Darkest Hour
"Darkest Hour" is a one man show for Oldman. And what a show it is.
Oldman brings a wicked wit and compassionate heart to the role, one for which he seems almost superhumanly suited for - and that's really saying something, consider how many great actors have played Churchill.
Darkest Hour invites viewers inside the heart and mind of a great leader but never really captures his deep rapport with the British people, which turned out to be one of his greatest political assets. Dunkirk takes a more populist approach.
Oldman's performance, like the film, reveres Churchill but doesn't glorify him.
Far from being a dry biopic, "Darkest Hour" reminds us that some things - such as honor and freedom - are worth fighting for.
