In Darkness Reviews

February 13, 2020
Natalie Dormer gives a passionate performance in a thriller with a moody style but not many interesting new ideas.
October 23, 2019
An absurd movie that travels between genres and ends up being a ridiculous waste of time. [Full review in Spanish].
July 26, 2018
There are a lot of great moments here, unfortunately, they just don't mesh into a cohesive whole.
July 6, 2018
It feels like three long seasons of quality television squashed into one savagely overstuffed cinematic piata.
July 6, 2018
A talented cast and a handsome sense of time and place can't save this thriller from being caught in a cliche-ridden and uninspiring undertow.
July 5, 2018
This initially promising blind-woman-in-peril thriller soon loses its way.

It wants to convert Atomic Blonde into Atomic Blind.

Despite a compelling opening, In Darkness ultimately reveals itself to be a substandard thriller, its increasingly ludicrous plot becoming irritating rather than entertaining, and eventually it feels like it doesn't actually matter how the film will end.

Those who do brave Byrne's silly, distasteful film will be rewarded with a twist that renders everything that went before it as complete and utter gibberish.
June 22, 2018
What could have been an exciting thriller with a complex, well-written female protagonist instead ends up being a convoluted and messy misfire.

The first third of the story then presents [the protagonist] like a typical Hitchcock ingenue before branching out into a promisingly ambitious mystery. Too bad that story ultimately loses focus and its protagonist's point of view.

In Darkness may feature a fantastic performance from Natalie Dormer but the rest of the film falters in bringing anything new, or even remotely exciting, to the table.
May 25, 2018
This thriller starts well and has worthy elements -- especially a strong female character, co-created by Dormer herself -- but the plot eventually becomes needlessly stretched-out and convoluted.
May 25, 2018
I did find myself wishing that all films this narratively misguided were so directorially sure-footed. Makes getting through them a lot less painful.
May 25, 2018
After it spends the opening minutes establishing a rich sense of atmospheric suspense, this flimsy psychological thriller loses sight of any such ambitions in a mess of incoherent plotting.
May 25, 2018
Games of murder, betrayal, revenge, and torment are played, but Byrne doesn't bring anything to a boil.
May 20, 2018
Anthony Bryne's high-flown style only serves to highlight the film's icky way of exploiting real-world tragedy for kicks.
