  • An alien invasion flick that evidently expects dramatic shots of a depopulated Red Square to make up for a flatlining screenplay and the absence of even a single compelling character. show more

  • Once upon a time, you'd go to see a grade-C genre movie like this willing to trade consistency and artfulness for a few stray thrills or oddball charm. But Darkest Hour doesn't have even as much character as those Discover commercials. show more

  • In a year-end season stacked deep with worthwhile films, what possible incentive could there be for submitting to The Darkest Hour's utter pointlessness? show more

    Waste of time that\'s for sure because this movie is low budget and the acting is not something special. www.moviezya.com

    Excellent acting, intelligent twist on an old plot (aliens invading) and suspenseful. Definitely worth the it. I can\'t wait for the sequel.

    Plot: Americans in Russia wearing light bulb necklaces and running from alien electric currents. Opinion: Not scary at all. This movie wasted not only time but the electricity it took to watch this film! Vote: 1 Star because I had to vote in order to post.
