Great cinematic, great actors, dumb and pointless plot - especially the ending. I want 2 hours of my life back!

If you’re expecting some big revelation at the end of this movie, don’t. It’s not so much about the beginning or the end as it is about the journey. It was beautifully shot and the locations were astounding. The score was some seriously tense and wonderful undercurrent that completely set the mood for me. In-fact, about the score; I loved how it would peak up above the scenes from time to time with a quick cut and instant fade to black. It gave the movie a sort of episodic feel and was great at building suspense. I enjoyed it even if it didn’t have a big closure at the end.

There's something haunting about the chill of remote northern locations in film. The Grey, The Revenant, and Wind River are high up in my list of preferred movies. Hold the Dark is there with them, if only just. If you're looking for something that is paced, haunting, and cold, this fits the bill. Best viewed in the dead of night with the windows open. It might not answer all the questions you have, but it knowingly advises through one main character's dialogue that the answers and explanations are there, whether you are privy to them or not. I can't be more specific about if this is your sort of film without spoiling the contents within. I recommend it, not as a good time, but as a dark time. 8/10

What's happenned with this? It begins very good, interesting and beautiful, but the plot seems to fall apart till the end. Maybe I need to watch again. :\

I have... **No** idea what I just watched... But that bit in the middle was like something straight out of a _Payday 2_ heist, so I'm cool.

_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
