Plot Outline:

Mere days after becoming the new Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchhill faces one of his most daunting and defining trial: as Nazi Germany subjugates Western Europe, Great Britain is clearly in its sites. An unprepared public, a skeptical king and with his own party plotting against him, Churchill will have to figure out how to rally his nation, and, in doing so, change the course of history. -- Chris Kavan

Joe Wright's film DARKEST HOUR is a good historical drama but it's no Dunkirk. Or if I may use an older reference, King's Speech. Remember how good that was?

Not a bad movie, but one Hollywood can make in its sleep. Churchill is an interesting, complex person, but this movie didn't even try to dig deeper than the familiar legend. Gary Oldman does fine work, but this is probably one of the least interesting roles of his career.

This film would make a great double-feature with Dunkirk. Gary Oldman gives arguably the greatest performance of his career by literally becoming Winston Churchill. This is not imitation, this is transformation, and it is a wonder to behold. The supporting cast, especially Stephane Dillane as Churchill's foil Viscount Halifax and Lily James as loyal secretary Elizabeth Layton are also quite good. But this all comes down to Oldman in a role that has been performed by many actors over the years, but if this is not the best, certainly rivals them and brings emotional heft and gravitas to one of the most important times in modern history.

Darkest Hour - Review

"Will you stop interrupting me while I am interrupting you!"

'Darkest Hour' is this years 'Lincoln'. Both films star a well respected actor who is unrealizable and brings one of the best performances of their career. History sure dose repeat itself.

It's quite shocking more actors have played Winston Churchill than James Bond, Spider-Man, and Doctor Who. Lets not forget we had another movie about Winston Churchill early this year named 'Churchill' staring Brain Cox. However, my excitement for Oldman to play the British bull dog was high, because I knew he's gonna stick his teeth into this meaty role, and he sure did. Gary Oldman was absolutely terrific and not once will you guess it's him. The level of humility, fear, and rage Oldman brought to role makes you see another s...
