THEY SAY

The story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects.

WE SAY

It’s Skyline . . . but in Moscow!

Seriously though, we have higher hopes for Darkest Hour than that. It at least features some of the more interesting alien invaders in quite a while, namely invisible energy beings. This at least makes it a bit more appealing than your average aliens-arriving-in-spaceships routine, which has become quite stale by now.

The trailer is a bit misleading though. It isn’t strictly “by” the director of Wanted. Instead Timur Bekmambetov, the gifted Wanted / Night Watch / Day Watch director, merely served as producer. The movie is directed by newcomer Chris Gorak who previously worked as art director on the likes of Minority Report and Fight Club.

Also the Moscow setting is a welcome change from L.A. (We’re still stuck with vacuous photogenic Americans though.)
