News & Interviews for The Darkest Hour
Critic Reviews for The Darkest Hour
There's literally nothing here that works: the SFX are limp, the acting is dire and director Chris Gorak seems to be fighting a losing battle with the concept of narrative logic.
It's clear from early on that these characters are as indistinct and lazily rendered as the floating blobs chasing them.
Not since Mark Wahlberg trembled in fear beside a menacing houseplant in The Happening has a film tried to provoke terror with such an unlikely object of menace.
If these dimwits represent the hope of humanity, bring on the alien overlords.
"Darkest Hour'' doesn't have even as much character as those Discover commercials.
Audience Reviews for The Darkest Hour
It's not that bad. I mean the leads are really good actors and the suspense was really there. Not knowing who the invisible aliens were going to kill next and all. Mmm, although the whole invisible aliens sounds like a cop-out, it really comes out quite interesting. That is until you listen to what these actors are saying...man, talk about a really crappy script and sub-par co-stars. Seriously if this had been better developed it could have been a great sci-fi flick. That script is really just what brings down this whole thing for sure.
Well...not the worst that I have ever seen, I guess. Just nothing new. Nothing very original. Kind of lame...
"It's not bad for a sci-fi alien invasion movie. It wasn't great though and I got a little bored with it. It lacked excitement and wasn't believable. When watching sci-fi flicks I want the characters and director to make me believe this one day can happen. The story could have been developed better. The acting was OK. I like Emile Hirsch. I haven't seen him in a film in a long time. I guess I thought I would see him in a better flick when I did. Not worth viewing more than once."
