Darkest Hour

2h 5m
Drama, History
A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

Gary Oldman is fantastic in the part, but the movie did very little to keep me engaged or entertained, unfortunately.

I have no idea why people are raving about this film, it's a bit crap, it's probably Oldman weakest performance to date, and the cinematography is terrible. Churchill with Brian Cox in the lead role is a *FAR* superior film on the subject.

When viewing this movie, two recent movies spring immediately to mind: Dunkirk and Lincoln. Dunkirk comes to mind because of the battle being predominant to the narrative of the film. Dunkirk makes the battle visceral, sure, but this film surpasses it in describing how critical that battle was and its importance to Churchill's career. Lincoln is the film it more closely resembles. It's a character study of a national leader in their early years, during war, surrounded by political enemies with a standout performance by the lead. I found this movie more compelling because the character of Churchill more readily demonstrated his fear and lack of confidence in his own convictions which made for a more dramatic film that I thought brought the gravity of the war more to the fore. I'm not debating who was the better leader, but who had the more engaging story and I think this is it. It moves along at a good pace and the "secretary" character does a good job of being the new person added to the world so the "Morris the Explainer" exposition is fairly well camouflaged. 8/10

This film won me over. It began poorly for me. I didn't care for Gary Oldman's Churchill or Ben Mendelsohn's choice of characterization of George VI. I was unuse to seeing Winston or the King portrayed as a blowhard or a faltering man but this provided a base upon which Anthony McCaren would build an arch that would span upward to a glorious triumph. He frames his story with a juxtaposition of viewpoints from the back rooms of power to the typewriter of a lowly secretary. Brilliant writing. Incredible performances from the aforementioned as well as Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas. A superb film for which I give a rating of 9 (superb) out of 10. (If you haven't already, you should immediately watch DUNKIRK following this movie - bring tissues.) [Historical Drama]

"Will you stop interrupting me while I am interrupting you!"

'Darkest Hour' is this years 'Lincoln'. Both films star a well respected actor who is unrealizable and brings one of the best performances of their career. History sure dose repeat itself.

It's quite shock More

It's 1940, and Hitler is attempting to take over Europe. The film takes an interesting look at Winston Churchill's first five weeks as Prime Minister. The acting in this movie is quite accomplished; good actors bring insight and depth to the characters. Overall, it's a well-done, engrossing film. More

As with many of the biopics I've seen recently, _Darkest Hour_ is more focussed on delivering you the facts than getting you involved with the characters. It is an interesting idea to have the majority of the story revolve around the of whether or not to sue for peace. That as a core concept in so m More
