The film was overly long and compared to other Holocaust films, did not make me feel the intensity of surviving int the sewer...it was good enough but NOT A GREAT FILM.

A certain contender for 2012 award nominations. One of the most intense and emtional films I have ever seen. You literally forget at times you are watching a film as opposed to being there watching in real time.The acting is first rate as is the cinematography. Not only is the story based on real events during the holocaust in Poland but it portrays the human fault line as never witnessed before

Excellent movie, but half an hour could have been cut by not filming so much time in the sewers...that part was getting a bit boring...the point had already been well made.

Quite a story about one brave Polish sewer worker who protects and saves Jewish citizens in Poland. This remarkable story tells how this sewer worker hides these Jewish citizens in the sewers from the Nazis during World War Two.

Wonderfully acted and directed. I believe this film will be up for an Oscar. This is a story told amid the holocaust, but with a unique look and feel from others. The story focuses on complex, a-typical characters. This film is moving , raw, and thought provoking.

For the film to work, Holland needs audiences to connect as deeply with the trapped Jews as Socha eventually does. With the exception of the group's leader, movie-star handsome Mundek Margulies (German-born, internationally recognized Benno Furmann), the characters are flat as shadows. Full Review

It is suspenseful, horrifying and at times intensely moving. But the ease with which it elicits these responses from the audience feels more opportunistic than insightful. Full Review
Time Out New York
You know the money-over-morality argument will eventually tilt toward righteousness, yet the film's turn toward charcoal-sketch notions of good and evil only fuels a simplistic view of historical tragedy in the worst sort of way. Full Review

It's a transformation as wrenching to watch as it is vital to remember. Full Review

It's the rare film that should not introduce new story elements or characters past its first act. In Darkness, a garbage movie applying for unlimited credit on the most meager collateral, is that film. Full Review
