Is good to know English history to keep up. It lacks a little bit of substance in the story and the dialogues are at times a bit long - but Oldman owns this movie. Give the man an Oscar! Just because if that it’s worth the watch. *Good.

I enjoyed this movie much more than Dunkirk because it actually showed non-obvious things about the political conflict... although it wasn't 100% true... Gary Oldman gave a wonderful performance and it was interesting and left me thinking.

Darkest Hour is exactly the movie you've been hearing about. Yes Oldman is frequently unrecognizable and provides an Oscar worthy performance. Yes it's a relatively by the numbers historical biopic affair. And yes it would make an absolutely perfect double bill with Dunkirk (An unofficial single cut of the two would be fascinating). But DH also features the longest ever single stop London Underground journey of all time (actual journey would be around 2 mins) so it's worth seeing for that alone!

Oldman's good but the film itself is frequently cheesy, overblown and fawning towards it's subject. Typical biopic really.

Gary Oldman disappears into a role once again. You feel like you're watching Churchill, for better or for worse. At times feels its length but for the most part the movie does a good job keeping the plot moving along. Props to Joe Wright and Bruno Delbonnel for keeping it visually interesting, as the movie is very dialogue heavy and would've collapsed under the weight of its rhetoric if not for the visual element (though what was with the Hitler kids?)

Occasionally we get a film that relies completely on one aspect to drive the rest of it. With Darkest Hour, that's Oldman. He's the reason to see the film. Joe Wright is a good director, but blimey does this feel a wee bit shallow. Churchill is, in the context of 2017, one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century. It's hard to care about the inner-turmoil of his war cabinet when, five months prior, Christopher Nolan gave us an astonishing representation of Dunkirk's success.

Mostly set in tunnels and dimly but pointedly lit drawing rooms, it visualizes the inner workings of a man who is gauging options as darkness comes closing in. I see this rousing film less as biography and more as an intellectual, moral, and humanistic call to courage.

The movie is fun and rousing and well made. Plenty can be said about the beautiful cinematography. However, the real treat here is Oldman's Winston Churchill. I am convinced that they actually reanimated Churchill's corpse and that Gary Oldman's chameleon-esque properties are merely a front to hide the truth. The movie scores a 61, Resurrected Winston is a 100.

Watch as Churchill makes tremendous decisions and writes famous speeches from his toilet seat. White men quarrel and then congratulate each other on deciding to make war. Bland at times, but well-acted and well-made. No bad.

I like Joe Wright. He's a visually inventive director and is usually a reliable hand when it comes to period films like this. Yet this feels like a step down. There are some visually distinctive moments that stick out like a sore thumb rather than serving the material, but unfortunately the material is just the straight forward, obvious hagiography you'd expect from biopic land. Apparently Churchill united the country in the face of a Nazi invasion? Who knew?

Limiting the scope of perspective didn’t provide a deeper insight into the man. It's simply a paint-by-the-numbers oscar contender that follows a simple pattern. It is entertaining enough, but it will be forgotten by years end.

somewhere under that makeup is Drexl and that will never cease to amaze me. the rest of the movie is either good or meandering, but believe the hype about Gary Oldman.

a weak second effort in the World War 2 Cinematic Universe. the anti-war bleakness of Dunkirk clashed tonally with Darkest Hour, in which a jolly fat man with an ambiguously genocidal past rouses a nation of stock characters into certain death, primarily justified by the audience knowing how the war ends. future installments Lend Lease and Midway offer promise, but they'll need to expand the cast beyond Mark Rylance lookalikes and flesh out FDR, voiced here by the Mr Burns on Smithers' computer.

The script understandably cashes in on Churchill's humor and that provides a lot of fun. But! Please stop glorifying the normal/average/simple person from the street... or in this case in the underground. That's what got us in this mess we call 2017! It's such a lazy intellectual position. Almost as lazy as, let's say, making movies about that Nazis are bad. Although there are glimpses into a narrative much more interesting.
