The American software designers Sean and Ben travel to Moscow to sell their software to investors. However, their Swedish partner Skyler pulls a fast one on Sean and Ben, and they are out of the business. They go to a nightclub, where they meet American Natalie and Australian Anne and they flirt with the girls and see Skyler in the club. Out of the blue, the population is surprised by lights, which they mistake for natural phenomena. But soon, they learn that the lights are aliens invading Earth and using power supply to annihilate mankind. Sean, Ben, Natalie, Anne and Skyler hide in the kitchen and when they leave the place, they seek out survivors on the street. Are they the last people on Earth? Written by

Production was suspended for a planned two weeks due to the extraordinary air pollution caused by heavy smoke from the wild fires surrounding Moscow in August 2010. It eventually resumed three weeks later. Even with this precaution, smoke still made it into a lot of shots and had to be digitally removed in post production. See more »
When they are floating down the river on the boat to get to the submarine, you can clearly see the footage is reversed to make it look like the boat is floating down the stream. The sailing route is clearly visible, and the boat is "floating" backwards along it. See more »

The Darkest Hour is without a doubt one of the absolute worst films I've ever seen. You know how some really bad films are so bad that they're actually sort of good/funny? This isn't one of them. It's just plain bad. If it were a made-for-TV movie, it would still be one of the worst I've ever seen. The only positive thing I can say about the film is it has an interesting premise. The actual end product, however, is sickeningly dull. We had two children with us and they were bored out of their minds.
The plot is rife with clichés. Character development is hollow and heartless. The script is dreadful. No one in the theatre laughed at any of the jokes. The aliens are horribly designed. It's not scary. It's not thrilling. And don't even get me started on the soundtrack...
Ultimately, this movie is an insult to sci-fi and just cinema in general. I shudder to think of the amount of time and money put into this film that could have been used for something infinitely better. Please don't contribute to the waste.
