A bunch of youngsters, swedes, Americans, are the only survivors in Russia, where a gang of Aliens are attacking humans. The aliens are blobs of electricity, that burns humans when they come in contact with them. How the bunch manages to end the mayhem is the crux of the non existent story in the film.
Right from the beginning , it is amply clear who in the bunch would die after whom, the predictability of the script is such. Not one sequence sends the chills down your spine, neither are the situations unintentionally funny to make time pass.
The heart of any creature movie are the creatures themselves. Here, the creatures for most parts are electricity waves, and the few minutes they actually show their form, they are not even half as scary as Ra.One.
With no thrills, nothing in terms of a plot line and absolutely nothing new in terms of action, The Darkest Hour is a completely unbearable enterprise. Steer clear of it at any cost.view less
