American tourists in Moscow are swept up in an alien attack.
" It's clear from early on that these characters are as indistinct and lazily rendered as the floating blobs chasing them. "
" There's literally nothing here that works: the SFX are limp, the acting is dire and director Chris Gorak seems to be fighting a losing battle with the concept of narrative logic. "
" If these dimwits represent the hope of humanity, bring on the alien overlords. "

" An alien invasion flick that evidently expects dramatic shots of a depopulated Red Square to make up for a flatlining screenplay and the absence of even a single compelling character. "
" Really, how slovenly is it to use invisible aliens? If you're going to tease us with nothing but pinwheels of light for three-quarters of the film, you'd better have one heck of a reveal up your sleeve. "
" "Darkest Hour'' doesn't have even as much character as those Discover commercials. "
