LmnO @ Movie Reviews: The Darkest Hour

The Darkest Hour is a film about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s rise to power during the bleakest period of World War II. Once thrust into his position by a reluctant King, Churchill is torn between his will to persevere in battle and his unsupportive political party’s insistence on peace negotiations with Hitler. To make the right decision, Winston must do what he has never done: connect with the common folk on a human, not political, level.

Highlights:

-Banter: I fucks with Engligh wit. This film has a lot of that fire dialogue the Brits are revered for. Was that a conversation or a chess game?

-Gary Oldman: Every once and a while during the film, I had to remind myself that this was, actually, a movie- not lost footage from WWII. The main reason is Oldman’s immersion into the role. More so than the hair/makeup/set design of this period piece, Through Oldman’s performance I felt more connected to the era as the riveting drama unfolded.
Lowlights:

-I need to hate: There’s really nothing, though. I mean, parts were boring, but that comes with the witty banter. Some of that shit was designed to make my American mind space out. Everything has its place and position in this movie and by the end, you can really see what the visionaries were going for in capturing this particular story. Makes it hard to hate and I NEED THAT!!
Overall:

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥(out of 5)
