The dark world succeeds where the twilight trash fails! Hollywood is in disadvantage, because is not about quantity but quality
Since the first reviewer already wrote the whole thing about the "The Dark World" I will direct my opinion on "Marina" our heroine, who is an outcast, but destined to fight the evil forces. Yes, the movie resemblance much of what we have seen before, even "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon", but this is a movie that appeals to young and older audiences, because Marina is intriguing, vulnerable and strong at the same time, going against the condescending attitude of everyone else including her teacher who sees her as a girl with a head full of chaos, but that is what made her so appealing. Marina is out of place because of her beliefs; and at the very same time she gets depressed for this reason, because deep down she would like to be the normal girl, pretty as others, cool and magnetic. What I am trying to describe is a character that is multidimensional on screen, contrary to the flatness of "Bella" Swan, AKA Kristen Stewart on those movies and books I didn't like. This Russian movie works in a proper level, where we have the witches and the "warlock" without the so much distracting weird love story. Still we find the romantic element and the crush that at one point of another so many of us have experience in life. The visuals and acting are very acceptable, and even though in the last twenty minutes the movie show some of its flaws it made me feel that I didn't waste two hours and twenty minutes of my life. The only complain I have is that DARK WORLD: EQUILIBRIUM (2013) will introduce us to a whole new set of characters. So my questions are: Alexander will be back to get his butt kicked again by the witches? There will be more witches? One way of another I liked "The Dark World" because it doesn't carry the usual propaganda or agenda, is just the regular fight between good and evil, just let yourself immerse into this movie and have fun!
