The movie could be better. But Oldman's turn is indeed the kind of flamboyant transformation that wins little golden men.
September 5, 2020
The truth is that only Oldman's performance here truly matters.

Gary Oldman delivers what could be his finest hour, becoming Winston Churchill to declare, "You cannot reason with a tiger when your head is in its mouth!"

There is no doubt, had it not been for Oldman and the visually stunning composition of the film, Joe Wright's prelude to Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk could have been a completely different film.

[It] serves no purpose other than to galvanize awards voters and rack up its own army of golden little men, an effort that won't be spoken about when awards season ends.

Oldman is so good that he almost masks the rest of the film.
June 27, 2020
It is a chamber biopic, in which we witness the bureaucratic decisions of a Winston Churchill who has been masterfully played by Gary Goldman, who, without a doubt, offers one of the most memorable performances of his career. [Full review in Spanish]

Make-up does not a performance make, as is proved by Darkest Hour.
May 20, 2020
It may be history, but Darkest Hour doesn't feel like homework. It's vibrant, thrilling, and intriguing all at once.

It's definitely watchable.

Gary Oldman is fantastic.

A naff piece of Middle England patriotic propaganda and historical revisionism. Winston Churchill's early days in office are depicted in nigh-on cartoonish terms.

There is a lot of ground covered in this film about one important month in the fate of the world. Once the film hits its stride, it's as thrilling as any action film.

The ultimate delivery and obvious climax of this film is spine-tinglingly great and goosebump-inducing, regardless of how many times you think you've heard it.
August 2, 2019
Gary Oldman performance makes us to forget his fantastic makeup in the first ten minutes of movie, and ends up being Churchill himself. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 1, 2019
It is not a great movie, but it is a proposal that is worth watching, and not only for the Gary Oldman's good performance. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 21, 2019
Casting Gary Oldman as Churchill seems like a risky gamble, given that both are known commodities. But Oldman, who has already portrayed such disparate figures as Sid Vicious, Lee Harvey Oswald and Ludwig van Beethoven, proves to be up to the task.

The birth of the last lion
July 3, 2019
It's [Gary] Oldman and his masterpiece of a performance that takes the movie to a whole new level.
June 18, 2019
Darkest Hour is a meticulously crafted, very-special-History-Channel movie unlikely to leave a major impact, outside of once again raising a glass to a mean, white dude who admittedly did a real good thing in standing against Nazis.
