New ‘The Darkest Hour’ movie delivered great thrills,special effects,action & more. Summit Entertainment dropped their new sci-fi/thriller flick “The Darkest Hour” into theaters today. I just watched it,and I thought it was pretty spectacular,and had a great plot. It was extremely suspenseful,and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The movie stars: Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, Rachael Taylor,and Joel Kinnaman.
Two guy friends Sean and Ben hit up Moscow,and appeared to be enjoying the club scene. They hooked up with two gorgeous chicks Natalie and Anne,while partying it up. However, things quickly turn dark,which seems appropriate as it has to do with the title of this movie.
All the club partiers walk outside to see alien light forms floating from the sky. They seemed mesmerized by it at first,but after one of them totally smokes a cop into dust,the total panic fest began. Everyone started scrambling,while the aliens dusted all the extras,one by one.
The original four,plus one German guy, all manage to hide out in the basement of the club until everything cleared out. Afterwards, they immediately ran to find help,and eventually found another survivor girl,along with a mad scientist,who’s developed a gun that can tear down the aliens’ microwave energy shield long enough for them to shoot them,and kill them.
The crew ends up facing more death and drama before they’re finally able to team up with other Russian rebels,tweak the microwave gun,and get down and dirty. It capped off with a very,suspenseful and action-filled conclusion that involved lots of shooting and extreme close calls.
I enjoyed watching the flick. The plot was pretty sound and unique. The killing was pretty straight forward. If those things touched you,you were immediate dust,so everyone had to be very meticulous about everything,which drove the suspense level up a few more notches. I liked actor Emile Hirsch in this. He’s been in a couple of other movies I liked. I gave the movie a solid B+ grade. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
