When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.Written by
It was definitely not a great movie but it wasn't horrible. It had a great storyline that was sacrificed to bad execution.
What I liked about it was its dark under-tone and scenes that were actually pretty scary! The acting was pretty good too and the meaning that popped up in the end was decent as well.
A one star review to this movie just isn't cool. Two stars maybe. Three stars, four stars WHATEVER! It seems the most reasonable ratings would be a five, six or seven. A ten is not acceptable unless you only liked the films darkness and storyline and completely avoided the bad execution.
I think that the best way the director and the writer could have fixed this was to show what went on when the survivors (Hayden Christensen, The black chick from Riddick, John Leguizamo (not sure if that's spelled right) and some kid) were learning about what was going on with the whole darkness thing. If they showed that it would've been way better.
Overall, the only main bad part in this movie was the execution. If they had better execution for the great storyline and premise it would've been a million times better, maybe even Oscar-worthy. Maybe.
At least it's better than Skyline.
