A guilty pleasure - and not bad,
This review is from: The Darkest Hour (DVD)
In this movie, four young Americans (including Emile Hirsch, from Speed Racer, and Max Minghella, from Art School Confidential, among others) get stranded in Moscow when an alien invasion (represented initially, intriguingly, as a lethal form of electromagnetic waves) attack Moscow, leaving almost everyone dead. Our friends hide in a sort of basement, and when a few days later, they emerge from inside, they find wholesale destruction, and the news that the aliens have attack planet wide, but also intriguing hints that there maybe other survivors. And soon enough, they find that some Russians have banded together to resist the invaders.
Produced by Kazakh filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (from the interesting Nightwatch franchise) this movie is nothing special but is surely an entertaining outing. Among the plus: the survivors escaping from the aliens in a desolate Moscow, including empty landmarks like The Kremlin and Moscow State University. Among the minus: some of the special effects are really cheesy.

if you are that intrigued by electromagnetism, you might try gripping a stripped power line; i guarantee that will be a memorable experience. also, there is an unsettling rumor that certain critics who cannot speak it are actually forcing themselves to learn broken english, in order to warn innocent americans away from this death pit. not bad? review is sounding like a stalinist agricultural report; not bad is sounding much too good to be true, tovorish andres.
