(ag) wrote: There is so little that works in "Alone in the Dark" that you would think it would be easier to just list the things the movie did correct but you'll be hard-pressed to think of anything. The story is a mess, but here goes anyway: Thousands of years ago, an ancient people named the Abkani opened a doorway into another dimension filled with monsters. The people managed to seal the door but it came at a terrible price and the entire civilization vanished. Our story follows Edward Carnby (Christian Slater), a former paranormal investigator under Bureau 713 who is investigating his past and researching a series of Abkani artifacts. As more and more artifacts are discovered, it becomes clear that someone is trying to assemble them to re-create the key to the other dimension. Edward, along with Aline Cedrac (his ex-girlfriend, played by Tara Reid) and members of Bureau 713 must stop the mysterious forces at work before it's too late.From the very beginning of the film you can tell this is going to be bad. The movie begins with a long text crawl explaining about the monsters, the Abkani and what happened thousands of years ago. This is a movie! Why can't we see this instead of hearing about it? Not only that, but the whole text crawl is narrated Christian Slater as well. Why? After wracking my brain I was able to come up with a brief outline of the plot but the story is incredibly difficult to follow. Several plot elements are very vaguely mentioned or are quickly introduced then dropped. There are side plots involving conspiracies, human-monster hybrids, past relationships between the characters and more that often lead nowhere, do not pay off or seem to contradict the actions of the characters. It doesn't help that the acting is pretty bad (the worst offender being Tara Reid) and the special effects are terrible. It's not that the monsters look all that bad, they're nothing special but decently made; it's the little things that just scream "amateur hour". For example, there's a scene where a zombified woman is running towards a character and she's gunned down with a single bullet to the head. If you're paying even the littlest amount of attention though, you'll notice that the bullet (which was added digitally) doesn't even come close to hitting its mark so she just falls over for no reason. Obvious, unexplainable bloopers like that one can be seen here or there during the film. A perfect example is a scene towards the end where a character is killed due to incompetence, the characters leave the room with the body and you can see the the actress begin to get up again before the shot is cut. Did director Uwe Boll never hear of a retake? It's like no one cared or was paying attention movie. My favorite bad moment is a seduction scene between Tara Reid and Christian Slater that is so bad, it's LEGENDARY. So here's the setup: The two of them haven't seen each other for years and they've just been attacked at the museum. They part ways and he goes back to his house, which is some kind of warehouse to rest. For unknown reasons, he leaves the door unlocked (despite having been attacked by strangers multiple times during the day) and his ex-girlfriend, who really resents him because his arrival marked her near-death at the hand of xenomorph-knockoffs, walks in. She finds him sleeping and then starts making out with him. We then have a soft-core sex scene (no nudity, the one thing that could have at least been somewhat enjoyable) and it fades to black. Why? Shut up. That's why.Being badly acted, with shoddy special effects and an incoherent plot would have been enough to dismiss the movie as trash, but it gets even worse because "Alone in the Dark" is boring. It's never thrilling because the mysterious activities by the villains don't make any sense and are never explained. It's never exciting because the action sequences are so badly put together and the characters so bland you don't care about any of them. It's never frightening either. There isn't even a single scene where someone is alone in the dark and frightened. What does that tell you? If all of the reasons I listed weren't enough, how about a couple more? We get some locked doors that only stay locked as long as the plot demands it, a scene where the actors talks about four photos but the camera shows five, totally inappropriate music that breaks the mood and leaves you scratching your head, a ton of destruction that doesn't mean a thing, badly written, stilted dialogue throughout, and as a cherry on top, an evil, child-exploiting nun. This woman ran an orphanage and sold the children off to a mad scientist so he could experiment on them. What kind of experiments? Well our villain wanted to create half-monster, half-human hybrids... of course! When the actions of this film begin to play out, our evil nun suddenly begins feeling bad about her actions and ends up committing suicide. If you're going to be an evil nun, at least commit to it! Honestly, I thought this movie was going to be a lot of fun to ridicule, but it really wasn't, it's just plain awful. I can't recommend that you check this movie out for any reason, even morbid curiosity because even though there are moments where it is so bad it's laughable, it really is a dull, dreary experience to watch it. Among Uwe Boll's films, "Alone in the Dark" is one of the worst and that's saying something. (On Dvd, July 5, 2013)

(nl) wrote: Pretty good until the animation takes over. Tom's hackneyed Artful Dodgerisms are seriously grating, "Wotcha!", ditto the songs, which are gringeworthy in every concievable way. Redeemed by some of the other animated figures and classic faces from British stage and screen.
(ca) wrote: It pains me to not be able to give this movie a better rating. But although I love Katharine Hepburn, and Spencer Tracy is wonderful with her usually, this had just a bit too much slapstick about it for me. I do always appreciate Hepburn though... you can't help but feel she's beat you at the boys' games, and then at the girls' games too. B
(ag) wrote: Two undercovers who are not aware of each other's identity do make an interesting plot. It is energetic but not riveting. Denzel Washington seems to be the result of a wrong casting.
(jp) wrote: Visually it is stunning, there is a massive sense of scale and the cinematography is pure art. Small elements detract from the action such as the constantly ambiguous accents which fluctuate (especially from Aaron Paul and Christian Bale) between American and English. Joel Edgerton offered some questionable acting aswell as Ramases, but this film is none the less enjoyable. To keep someone entertained for nearly 3 hours is difficult to do (trust me I have seen King Kong), and despite what others have said I thought the pacing in here was just right, it included all the points from the story without dwelling to much either.
