[It's] like a bad holiday fruitcake that somebody tried to spruce up with a zillion lumps of neon-colored, soggy jellybean guts.

Did Olivia Thirlby and Emile Hirsch make this so they could visit Russia on somebody else's dime?

It's true mindless trash, but it's fun mindless trash... I'm not ashamed to say I would watch a sequel.

Once again it's time for the end of the world. But, "The Darkest Hour" fails to see the light and we're stuck with yet another mediocre sci-fi movie.
April 3, 2012
Uninspiring and insipid, this contemporary take on the zombie genre sees a group of gorgeous twenty somethings trapped in Moscow trying desperately to get away from an endless attack launched by nasty id-like blobs of energy.

So bad that Russian and American relations may break down and reignite the Cold War.

One accusation commonly levelled at films like Transformers is that they're big on budget but light on ideas. The Darkest Hour falls short on both fronts.

The title of this teen disaster-by-numbers affair could not be more apt - as a collective omen for all those involved

The setting in deserted Moscow is the biggest point of difference about this ho-hum end of the world scenario. Also invisible is the tension to give this apocalyptic sci-fi action thriller scares and impetus.
January 15, 2012
The most alarming moment is the revelation that there might be a sequel.

It is as though they got half way through making the film and had the budget catastrophically slashed.

In what might prove to be one of the most egregious examples of concept far outstripping execution, The Darkest Hour ends up as this year's Skyline: aliens+paper-thin screenplay=cinematic snooze.
January 13, 2012
Cool though this might seem as a post-apocalyptic fashion accessory, it's fatally ill-thought-through...

Our planet is ravaged by aliens in yet another sci-fi calamity so bad you'll be cheering on the invaders.
January 12, 2012
Invisible invaders!... Surely, then, we're in for an inspired, imaginative story and engaging, fascinating characters -- you know, to make up for the cheapness... Nope...
January 12, 2012
Very cheap and silly-looking.

Sadly lacks the stylish imagination that co-producer Timur Bekmambetov brought to his supernatural epics Night Watch and Day Watch.
January 12, 2012
An intriguing idea and inventive visual approach is let down by a script that runs out out of steam before it ever reaches full speed.
January 12, 2012
Sensationally poor.
