The Synopsis for Darkest Hour (2017) 1080p

Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.

The Reviews for Darkest Hour (2017) 1080p

Oldman's great; pity about the film.Reviewed byMartin BradleyVote: 5/10

When Meryl Streep won her third Oscar for playing Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady" it was as much for her make-up as it was for her acting, (it's actually one of her least interesting performances; more mimicry than anything else). The same can't be said of Gary Oldman's turn as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's "Darkest Hour". It's a phenomenal performance that demolishes all previous Churchills. Yes, he looks the part thanks again to his hugely talented make-up artists and he has the voice off pat, but more importantly he gets inside Churchill's heart and head which is, perhaps, something of a surprise considering the material he's been given to work with is really rather third-rate.

Wright's film, which simply covers the month of May 1940 when Churchill was elected Prime Minister and saw the evacuation at Dunkirk has every cliche in the book including a disasterous scene when Winston decides to ride the Underground for the first time in order to gauge public opinion. This sequence is positively embarrasing though Oldman just about manages to carry it off. Elsewhere the film is very unevenly acted. The men have the best of it with both Ben Mendelsohn and Ronald Pickup impressing as the King and Neville Chamberlin respectively. On the other hand, Kristin Scott Thomas isn't given enough to do as a rather genteel Clemmie and Lily James makes for a very dull secretary. So then, very much a hit and miss affair worth seeing for Oldman's Oscar-winning performance, (they may as well put his name on it now), providing you are prepared for another lame history movie and Wright's poorest picture to date.

Almost historyReviewed byferdinand1932Vote: 6/10

As a film this is quite good; it's not dull, the performances are good, the production design is excellent, the script is a professional piece of work and even Oldman's make-up is not too distracting.

However, something is not right. If most people get their history from movies, this is concerning. It's obvious that actual events occurred with real people and what they did and said but in a movie this gets pasteurized into what smart people believe will be more thrilling, more sympathetic, more emotional. That process necessarily alters things into something that is even anachronistically rendered and therefore not in the record.

This defect occurs frequently in this movie , so it's not history but myth making. A good example is Churchill's dive into the Underground to meet the common person to steel his resolve. Now Churchill had a mixed view of the average voter, and he was a patrician, but even that aside, he did not need to take a Tube train survey to gauge opinion.

This scene is poached from Shakespeare's Henry V where the king goes among his soldiers the night before battle to hear them and take courage from their strength. Steal from the best is a good policy, but it's not history. It's Shakespearean history and that trades effect for accuracy too.

The audience is given this scene to present Churchill as an instrument of democracy; he's acting for what the people want, therefore he's doing the right thing. It's called pandering.

Well, it is just a movie.

Gary Oldman is Electrifying as Churchill!Reviewed bynamashi_1Vote: 7/10

That Gary Oldman is one the greatest living actors in the planet is a known fact to all cine-buffs around the world, but with 'Darkest Hour', Oldman has put himself in a place of the all-time heavyweights in Acting. As Winston Churchill, Oldman is a veritable delight & shows us what an actor can do when he sinks his teeth into the part. Oldman is PURE, unfiltered Acting Greatness. And Yes, the movie is good too!

'Darkest Hour' follows Winston Churchill (Oldman), and follows his early days as Prime Minister while Hitler closes in on Britain during World War II.

Writer Anthony McCarten & Director Joe Wright deliver 'Darkest Hour' with great success. While its ambitious to a fault (the film particularly lags in its initial reels), its overall a great story of a leader, who's over-the-top & risky decisions led him to create history of its own. This is a personal story about a man in great power & how his courage & at times, humor, led him to become a leader to follow. Churchill is not a perfect man, he's always in need for a drink or smoking up a cigar with less regard to polluting a room, but he's a determind man with a vision of a true Prime Minister, that knew how to deal with the forces when the world was at War. McCarten's Screenplay is engrossing & despite some flaws for its initial tepid start, make up for a well-written Screenplay. Wright's Direction is commanding & powerful. Bruno Delbonnel's Cinematography & Valerio Bonelli's Editing are fantastic. Art & Costume Design, as well as Make-Up, deserve a special mention. Dario Marianelli's Score, also, is good.

But the reason to really watch 'Darkest Hour' is, of course, Gary Oldman. With his perfect body-language, to his impeccable dialogue delivery to the fierceness in his eyes, Oldman is truly remarkable. This has to be his finest performance ever after his mesmerizing turn in 'Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy'. With Golden-Globe & SAG Nominations already in, Oscar Calling is meant to happen.

Of the rest of the cast, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendelsohn & Lily James, are in top-form.

On the whole, 'Darkest Hour' is a Gary Oldman showcase. And it helps that the showcase is also a pretty good period piece. Watch It.
