The Darkest Hour is an Apocalyptic Sci-Fi film that was released on Christmas Day by Regency Enterprises. It’s also an apt assessment of the current mind-numbing trend of excessive CGI and 3D “technology” in mainstream American cinema. Far from dazzling my senses, this approach induced a brief sensory overload followed by an acute disconnection to the rest of the film. If that’s what you were trying to do, well done. If not, will you please, for the love of God, stop! Your money would be much better spent on talented writers, actors, and directors.
The Darkest Hour, directed by Chris Gorak, stars Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minhella, and Rachel Taylor.
