The Darkest Hour

DVDizzy
22 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Darkest Hour ranks pretty lowly among the long line of alien and disaster movies. Hindered by a clunky script, a frugal design, and severely flawed logic, the film's most redeeming feature is its abundant supply of entertaining failures.

The Darkest Hour 3D / 2D (Blu-ray Review)

14 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Darkest Hour isn’t as terrible as I expected but it’s also not as good as it could have been.  However, if you are looking for a benchmark, it’s significantly better than Skyline in my opinion.

The Darkest Hour - 3D

High-Def Digest
12 April 2012
  • Conclusion: To be perfectly frank, 'The Darkest Hour' is ultimately little more than what's typically expected of the Syfy Channel. The script comes with an intriguing concept at its heart, but the production dwindles down to a cheap, B-quality sci-fi disaster thriller with a weak storyline, terribly dull...

  • Excerpt: I’m sure I’ve said this in another review, but in case I haven’t I’ll say it here: wouldn’t it be cool if there was an alien movie in which aliens came to Earth and we just kicked their ass! I mean, seriously, why has no one thought of this as a plot for a movie?

The Darkest Hour 3D Review

DoBlu
11 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Darkest Hour earns mercy points for its approach to intelligent life from elsewhere in the universe, an electrical, nearly invisible species feeding on our resources. Note that humans are also a resource. Extra credit is thus earned for not treating the main cast as invincible.

The Darkest Hour (2011)

4 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Darkest Hour serves its purpose as acceptable mindless entertainment. It's slick, well made, kind of snazzy sometimes, but that's about it. Dull characters and a repetitive cadence keep the movie from ascending beyond mediocrity. This is the perfect example of the go-nowhere modern movie.

The Darkest Hour

AV Club
27 December 2011
  • Excerpt: If nothing else, the egregiously awful new sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour adds a formidable new entry in the pantheon of hilariously unfrightening horror movie villains, a strange subset that includes such oddities as Death Bed, The Bed That Eats.
