It's a good movie with credible actors. You don't know what's going to happen. Good to have in your personal dvd library!

This film wasn't quite what I expected but I gave it some latitude and while it wasn't the slickest production,it did have enough going for it that I did enjoy it. The locations being shot in Moskow were interesting and it made the best of a modest budget, I would say. As a sci-fi fan I am open to most scenarios and story telling styles so I would say that I rate it up with Cloverfield and the like. I didn't recognize the actors but they were believable enough that I followed the story along with them...... You might enjoy this one as well!......

..for heckling.

This was our choice for a night home with friends, and very quickly became a shared opinion: this is a great movie to watch drunk and heckle. Maybe a drinking game? Like MST3K. I have no doubt in 20-30 years The Darkest Hour will feature on the show.

I want an hour of my life back. Nothing in this movie works. Nothing is believable. Characters, dialogue, relationships, plot, actions and choices, effects, science, aliens. I have a great capacity for suspension of disbelief. I'll buy almost anything, and stretch way beyond where most people will just give up and move on. I can overlook massive holes in one area, as long as the story and characters are engaging and make me care.

There is a lot of use of technology and gadgets and concepts, but even as a layperson the holes are big enough to drive a truck through. Such as the Faraday cage, well, I mean, it has the word "cage" in it, but that's as far as that goes. Or the aliens with the apparent intelligence and attention span of a dog or toddler; out of sight, out of mind. Well, there was something there, but now I can't see it because it's hiding behind a piece of glass, so it must not exist anymore.

This is too bad, because Darkest Hour showed promise. The previews were really good. The idea and plot sounded cool. But things really fell apart right from the first scene, and kept going downhill.

0/5 terrible

A guilty pleasure - and not bad Feb. 17 2012
By Andres C. Salama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In this movie, four young Americans (including Emile Hirsch, from Speed Racer, and Max Minghella, from Art School Confidential, among others) get stranded in Moscow when an alien invasion (represented initially, intriguingly, as a lethal form of electromagnetic waves) attack Moscow, leaving almost everyone dead. Our friends hide in a sort of basement, and when a few days later, they emerge from inside, they find wholesale destruction, and the news that the aliens have attack planet wide, but also intriguing hints that there maybe other survivors. And soon enough, they find that some Russians have banded together to resist the invaders.

Produced by Kazakh filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (from the interesting Nightwatch franchise) this movie is nothing special but is surely an entertaining outing. Among the plus: the survivors escaping from the aliens in a desolate Moscow, including empty landmarks like The Kremlin and Moscow State University. Among the minus: some of the special effects are really cheesy.

surprisingly good April 13 2012
By daniel tynan - Published on Amazon.com
especially for what looks like a relatively low budget endeavor. casting was good, actors were likeable, dialog felt fresh, the pacing was crisp, and while it followed the usual structure (5 survivors becomes 4, then 3, then 2, etc) it offered a few surprises along the way. it made excellent use of the Moscow location, and the special effects were not as cheesy as you might expect. worth a rental.

Ghost Busters vs Pikachu April 14 2012
By Icejon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My wife and I like to see alien movies. Darkest Hour is more understandable than Cowboys vs Aliens, and the characters are more likeable than Skyline. The steady camera work also makes it less of a nausea fest than Cloverfield. The movie is entertaining, even though it has a few tropes.

Unfortunately most of the time in Darkest Hour is consumed by the heroes running from glowing shadowy angel things. All the running really showcases how nicely Moscow is filmed. Oddly the movie takes the heroes through all the famous tourist spots in Moscow. A nightclub, the highway, Red square, The Kremlin, Moscow GUM(mall), the US Embassy and the famous metro are all setpieces. Perhaps without all the shadowy ghostly things, all of these places in Moscow would be fun to see.

If you are looking for over the top violence, sex, or drama, there is none here. That isn't the fault of the young and unknown actors and actresses, its because you can't really script a movie about running from invisible angel things. The movie has more Deus Ex Machina than the average Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. It's a better movie than Cloverfield but it is begging for some closure.

Close your eyes and imagine Ghost Busters vs Pikachu. If that vision makes you smile, rent the movie!

Don't be so serious, people! April 21 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I don't know why everyone has ripped so much on this film. When I first saw the trailer, I thought it had an intriguing idea-one I've not seen before. I never went to the theatre to see it because of all the negative reviews. Finally, once it was available here, I went ahead and took a chance. Partly, to be honest, because I am a HUGE fan of Joel Kinnaman.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked it. It's not a movie I'm watching because it's going to be Oscar nominated (besides-I usually don't care for those anyway). It gave an explanation for why the aliens are on Earth, how to kill them and the end left you with hope.

It actually reminded me a bit of Red Dawn or the Australian flick, Tomorrow, After the War Began; everything is not wrapped up in a bow but the end leaves you with hope.

I don't know what everyone was expecting, but I thought it was worth watching and did so twice. My mom also watched it and really enjoyed.

This Should Be Getting Higher Ratings! May 19 2012
By Brian Driver - Published on Amazon.com
NOTE: THIS CONTAINS NO SPOILERS!

I really liked "The Darkest Hour." In fact, I am surprised at the number of negative reviews here on this site. While I do not feel it was a five-star movie, I do feel this movie did exactly what it had to, as well as it could.

To be honest, when I first heard that an aliens-invade-the-earth movie was going to involve two American "aliens"--that is, two Americans visiting Moscow on a business deal--I found the notion intriguing but not compelling. I mean, why Moscow, right?

But the movie takes off very quickly. Once Ben and Sean, the two Americans, are double-crossed by their Russian "partner" Skyler, several things are set in motion: their two personalities are clarified in crisis, they have a need to go out and burn off steam (and meet Natalie and Ann), and the audience is ensured that Skyler's gonna die.

All of that takes no more than five to ten minutes of screen time. And when the aliens do arrive, they do so in noteworthy fashion: as little Aurora Boreali that drift to the streets. As it has been typical of aliens ever since "War of the Worlds" did it on the radio 70 plus years ago, the intruders somehow zap! people into nothingness. It isn't until sometime later we begin to understand how (through some kind of electrical disintegration).

And, as we find out after the five of them spend an unspecified number of days hiding in a food storage room, there are apparently precious few human beings on the planet left alive.

What really made this film enjoyable was the clever use of its characters, particularly Sean, played by Emile Hirsch. I hesitate to use the word "plucky" except it describes him to a T: resourceful, creative, resilient, he becomes the backbone of not only their twosome, but also the film. I found Hirsch to bear a resemblance to a more cheerful "Bourne" as he noodles his way through situations that are making others crumble.

Indeed, this characteristic is echoed throughout the movie, a thing we are fond of calling The American Spirit, but its appearance in this movie proves it does not belong to us alone. A likewise spirit among surviving Moscovites helps prove human tenacity is a worldwide human characteristic. Not that everyone has it--and this film doesn't mind killing off its central characters, mind you--but those that do are like little islands within the desolate streets of a ruined city...and, we suppose, world.

I loved "The Darkest Hour." I thought it did what good sci-fi movies without a blockbluster cast or budget do: package its product with good, clever special effects, but never forget it is character and story that drive a movie. Emile Hirsch and the rest of the cast (Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor and Max Minghella, among others) created compelling personalities who were always interesting.

Credit also goes to the special effects team for not only dreaming up a clever representation of a menacing alien presence, but also for giving its characters interesting ways of dealing with it as well. The film never feels stale, never drags, never becomes unbelievable.

And the proof of the fact is that, given the fact that we are left in the perfect position for a sequel, it is one I definitely want to see.
