Not screened for critics and slid into a bizarre Sunday release slot, Ryan Daley hit the local cinema to check out Summit Entertainment’s The Darkest Hour, the Chris Gorak-directed alien invasion pic that follows five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack.
“While the lush 3D location shots of a desolate Moscow are admittedly stunning, the forgettable characters and paint-by-the-numbers plot threaten to burn the entire film out of your brain mere seconds after you’ve left the theater,” says Daley before joking, “Remove the sporadic alien attacks and ‘The Darkest Hour‘ suddenly feels like a Sunday night slideshow of your parents’ summer tour of the Motherland.”
