Format: DVD
This is a dark, psychologically-driven film which draws you in, keeps you thinking, offers delicious twists, subtle hints, and surprising secrets, and is never what it seems, not even when you think you know all there is to know.
The plot has been well outlined in most of these reviews; sometimes perfectly, sometimes with too much information, and a few times by reviewers who apparently didn't even watch the complete film. Rather than rehashing the plot this review offers simple and hopefully clarifying suggestions.
If you are an Alan Rickman film, do not hesitate; BUY this DVD! Forget about worrying about his accent, savor looking forward to his nude scenes, but do NOT skip to the end of the movie to view them. You gamble on missing too much of Rickman's spellbinding performance if you skip even one minute of this small, but very effective film.
Previous viewers who saw the movie on VHS will be enlightened by watching it again on DVD. I have been a movie fan for more years than I want to say, but have now discovered that the nuances of many films have sometimes escaped me totally over those decades. If ever there was something to be learned from a commentary this is the film to prove it (along with 'South of Heaven, West of Hell'). Not that the film itself needs to be explained, but the element of how a director presents of a film; the mood attained by the camera angles, the symbols included in every scene, the intricate details of the shooting of the movie, the input of the actors (particularly one as great as Alan Rickman) into their roles, the subtle nuances of looks, glances, and plot building all lend a deeper understanding and enjoyment of 'Dark Harbor'.

Format: DVD
I came to 'Dark Harbor' with illicit knowledge of the denouement, just by virtue of the place I'd first seen it reviewed. Given that DH is a suspense thriller, the sort where the ending should make you re-evaluate everything you've seen previously, I won't pass on what I knew. Which is a real shame, because some of you out there would buy the dvd just for those last 5 minutes, if you knew what they were - despite the fact that the preceding 84 are less than stellar. But I can at least tease with the fact that we get a full frontal nude shot of Alan Rickman, albeit from a distance. There are not enough nude men in the movies; kudos to Rickman for evening up the balance.
So what brings the movie down in the ratings? Certainly not the acting. Rickman, as David Weinberg, demonstrates his usual command of the set which so unnerved Kevin Costner, with a subtlety which might surprise viewers who have only seen him in his more flamboyant villain roles. Rickman is fearless in presenting unpleasant, difficult characters who nevertheless engage our sympathy. The only rub is the unconvincing Jewish Bostonian accent, which undermines his most powerful tool as an actor: his rich, expressive voice. Given that the plot hardly turned on him being American, it seemed a bit pointless to hamper his performance like that.
Thank heavens the same decision wasn't made in regard to Polly Walker, who has a classic beauty but again makes the acting grade more for her wonderful, low clear diction. Her cut-glass British accent enhances rather than distracts from her character, Alexis, giving her both the air of reserve and the upper-class status which strengthen some of the more creaking elements of the plot.

By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 9 2011
Format: DVD
Dark Harbor is a real gem of a film noir. The film has an ominous quality of foreboding to it that one rarely finds in a modern film noir. It also has an underlying evil so monstrous that one is totally taken aback by its revelation, which in many ways is the magical quality of this film noir masterpiece. It pretends to give you a typical run of the mill film noir story, when in fact the film has an emotional and psychological complexity that only becomes apparent as one progresses through the film.

This film does a marvelous job of toying with the viewer's pre-conceptions about what a film noir should be. The characters in this film are admittedly odd in the emotional baggage they all appear to carry, and their relationship with each other at first seems rather bizarre and unlikely. The film does a great job at hiding its diabolical premise, so much so that the viewer finds they are going through an emotional shock toward the end of the film that leaves them disillusioned and sad.

Directed and written by Adam Coleman Howard, this is a brilliant film noir. The work of Alan Rickman in this film is
absolutely terrific, though I wish he would have kept his British accent instead of trying to imitate an American one as it became somewhat annoying at times. The supporting work of Polly Walker and Norman Reedus was very effective. I particularly liked Polly Walker in this film, since she did very well in playing a role with a fair amount of psychological complexity.

A true gem of a film noir.
