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.

HIDE AND SEEK WITH THE ALIENS Jan. 8 2012
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
An alien vs. earth film that doesn't take place in L. A. Two software developers go to Moscow to present their software only to discover the Russians already have an exact copy. Unfortunately the beginning and their talents don't factor later into the film. They meet a couple of other Americans at a nightclub and when it looks like they are going to score aliens attack the planet (story of my life).

These are not ordinary aliens. They are mostly invisible and like Predator seem to hunt by infrared. They kill humans and barking dogs using some kind of microwave beam that causes living things to explode (the cool part). Our focus group of 5 young adults hide in a large storage closet that has food.

Now what? Do you A) stay put until all the food is gone, then maybe venture out to get more food, hoping that the aliens have killed enough humans. And if captured all they would want to do is probe you?

or B) Try to find the US embassy so they can get you back home. Personally I would go with "A" because I know for a fact the US embassy does not have contingency plans for an alien invasion. Perhaps they need to advertise that more.

** mid point Plot SPOILER? but not ending**

Our group chose option "B". Later they discover the aliens can be killed with a "Ghost Buster" looking weapon and there is a Russian sub in the river awaiting survivors...but not for long. They meet people along the way. They gain a few and lose a few.

To be honest I got a bit bored during the alien hide and seek part. There were no monsters to see, so they saved a ton of money on make-up and special effects. I didn't feel much intensity. The acting was okay considering the lack of a script. They needed to add a little humor, maybe a love scene with an "exploding" ending.
Asylum dull.

2 f-bombs. No sex, or nudity. Some hip-hop song lyrics were suggestive.
