i tuned into this movie about an hour into the film. stephen baldwin is in a hospital bad. his poorly made-up face looks fat and bloated. i couldn't believe the poor camera angle which exacerbated the size of his neck and lack of chin.

but it was the toy helicopter (with real chopper noises) landing on plastic grass that had me howling out loud. and then the model radio telescope arrays. i suppose if they couldn't afford a real helicopter they really couldn't afford to go on a real location.

this is one of the funniest film snippets i have ever seen. and it isn't even a comedy. make it into black and white, and it would look as if it was made in the 50s. except for baldwin's long hair style. i am not going to make it to the end, unfortunately. gee, i wonder what happens next.

I have to admit I watched it to the very end - barely -without falling asleep!

This is not a repulsively bad movie, just an annoying one! The acting is so universally horrible, I said to myself, "I could do a better job - where do I sign-up?" This thought entered my mind so often I started wondering how much these godforsaken actors where paid for their severe lack of skills! For them it must be a thrill to know you at least made it to DVD, even if you never made it to the big screen! But for the rest of us watching Dark Storm it was terribly distracting!

The special effects were enjoyable and the fantasy element was interesting. It's a shame who ever directed and produced this film didn't pony-up some more bucks to get some real acting talent! This could have been a half-way decent sci-fi/fantasy film!

For a MUCH more entertaining approach to Science Fiction see:Zardoz and Enemy Mine and Fantastic Planet and A.I. - Artificial Intelligence (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) and Bicentennial Man and Galaxy Quest (Deluxe Edition)

First Earthstorm now Dark Storm what next?

I could not get through this movie without howls of laughter both from myself and my family.

Everything about this movie suggests low budget and a C movie. There is nothing to raise it even to a B.

Where can I start? Bad acting, silly story, cheap effects, clunky effects, low levels of plausibility.

This movie has got them all which will probably make it a cult classic for years to come. Alternatively, one could argue that this is the 50s pulp sci fi renaissance.

I like this movie because of the concept of the story. I liked Stephen Baldwin in it and he has a lot of talent. He could have done a lot more with the character he was playing but all and all he did a very good job. Some posts said that it was bad acting and not worth a look but I thought it was pretty well done.

Yes, it is a good movie. I bought it for the actor Stephen Baldwin and because it is a scifi/disaster movie.
