THE DARKEST HOUR is a sloppily put together film from start to finish. Everything from the story to the dialogue to the acting is just exceptionally terrible. The worst performance of the entire film comes from Into The Wild actor, Emile Hirsch, whose facial expressions and faces as he tries to depict various emotions is laughable. It doesnít help that Hirschís dialogue for the movie was by far the worst. The other actors may have been given equally terrible dialogue to work with, but Hirsch is the one who seems to really give emphasis to just how terrible it really is.
The special effects for the movie arenít by any means terrible, but theyíre meant to be the films saving grace and I canít even tell people that itís worth watching for that reason alone, because itís really not.
Visualizing an Invasion: A feature that takes you behind the scenes of the special effects. Itís pretty in-depth and gave me a little more appreciation for how the movie came together in that sense.
Deleted and Extended Scenes: A very short set of extra scenes. They were mostly cut out for good reason and definitely didnít add anything else to the film overall.
And the last feature thatís included with THE DARKEST HOUR Blu-ray is an Audio Commentary.
