The Darkest Hour Movie Review

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

Tired of wreaking havoc in New York and Los Angeles (really, how many more CGI shots must we see of a deserted Times Square or a ravaged Staples Center?), aliens set their sights on Moscow in The Darkest Hour, a new end-of-the-world thriller that’s as much fun to watch as a 90-minute ultrasound video.The film’s single smart idea is that it’s about humans fighting semi-invisible aliens – an enemy they can’t really see – but instead of playing on that paranoia and treating it as a struggle for survival, the filmmakers quickly turn it into a saga of courage and bravado, which simply isn’t as much fun. I’m going with one out of five for The Darkest Hour. It packs few thrills and barely any scares. No reason you should waste your time or money.

In the darkest hour Alien invasion in the form of bright, yellow floating sparks of energy that decimates its victims to dust? Wow! But the same ball of light — almost invisible — but capturing three-quarters of screen time? Not that happening. Specially when the movie tries to send out a strong message to Earthians — mess not with the energies of the Earth what does one do when all is destroyed by the enemy from outer space — London, New York, Paris, Asia…. What follows next is planning and the innumerable hide and seek moments between the terrified five and the aliens. Sometimes they manage to escape, sometimes it just turns a few into dust. .

Woozy on science and woozier on fightback, the darkest hour is yet another alien film splashing desperately about to be different.The human race is represented, largely, by four Americans and a Swede.What we can be grateful for is that the aforementioned few survivors of this alien massacre do not mount a David-taking-on-Goliath battle here, concentrating on running, hiding, running and hiding. Their goal is a nuclear submarine that can take them out to somewhere, someplace. That’s a neat exit for a film that, in claiming a world-wide doomsday, leaves itself few.
