(gb) wrote: This damn movie aggressively tried as hard as it could for THREE DAMN HOURS to turn one of the most fascinating and badass real life stories of all time into the most boring and somber film about assassins ever.

(gb) wrote: As in most bad horror flicks, intimations of unspeakable evil are supposed to distract us from the yawning gaps in story logic and character motivation. It's just a murky, dark mess where no one wins. Especially those of us watching it. Simply put: Darkness fails. It's about as chilling as an unplugged refrigerator. It's not even bad enough to be any fun. Some movies should never come to light, either, and Darkness, bearing a 2002 copyright, might well have been better left on the shelf. Full of shuttery jump cuts set to music cues so loud your heart can't help but convulse, Darkness should have been left to molder in Miramax's vast vault of horror-movie stiffs. The sketchy characterizations, laughable dialogue and less-than-stellar performances by the formidable cast, all of whom have done far better work in the past, provide further reasons why Darkness should never have seen the light of day. Unoriginal, frequently incomprehensible and cheaply made. VERDICT: "Hit The Exits" - [Panned Reaction] These are some of the worst films ever made. These films do everything wrong and do it worse than bad. Audiences should never see this film under any circumstances! (Films that are rated 0.5 or 1 stars)

(us) wrote: One of the key films in British cinema, as it significantly helped shape its landscape, and perhaps the film that truly put Ken Loach on the map. Here, Loach is heavily influenced by the masters of Italian neo-realism and takes the cameras right to the street. The result makes Kes seem gripping in a realist way, as the film not only comes across as a genuine and honest portrayal of the hardships of childhood but also a harrowing study on loss of innocence under society's lack of kindness.
