During World War II, as Adolf Hitler's powerful Wehrmacht rampages across Europe, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Neville Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup), is forced to resign, recommending Sir Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) as his replacement. But even in his early days as the country's leader, Churchill is under pressure to commence peace negotiations with Hitler or to fight head-on the seemingly invincible Nazi regime, whatever the cost. However difficult and dangerous his decision may be, Churchill has no choice but to shine in the country's darkest hour.

Clive Owen is amazing in this. He does so much to pull you into the movie, and you don't even realise you are in it. It is so powerful. I cannot believe he is a 2nd rate actor, what a character. His performance is so convincing, I think he did a lot of work on this. It is brilliant. Definitely a 10 from me. The rest of the cast were fantastic. The script was brilliant. The pace is just perfect. The way it builds up and the way it ends is just perfect. This is a masterpiece. I recommend everyone see this. 10/10 from me. Can't wait for The Messenger, to come out in 3D. Now that is a film I can watch over and over again. I can't wait.

the movie is well written and well directed. I've read some of the reviews and although it has some flaws it is not one of those movies that is bad but just doesn't work well. What is more, it does have an interesting twist at the end that keeps you guessing, which isn't the case with most of the films in this genre. The story is well told. Its slow and doesn't leave you with many questions but that is a good thing. It keeps you thinking about what you've seen. There is not much dialogue but its nicely done. The actors and actresses are all doing a great job, some even better than others. The whole movie is shot in black and white, which is quite a contrast to the rest of the movie. The story line and screenplay are well done. I really didn't expect much from this movie but I was surprised. I've never seen a movie that is as good as this one, and I'm not a big fan of the genres that it is in. It is one of the few movies I have ever seen that makes me want to go to the cinema to see it again and again. The only negative comment I have is that the movie is too long. It does feel like it could have been done in a shorter time. Overall I would definitely recommend it. 8/10

I am an American who lives in Germany. I have been following the situation of the Germans in Poland since 1989. So I think I know something about what was happening. The movie is based on two of the best-selling books: "War is a Crime" and "The Boys from Berlin". The movie does an excellent job of bringing the events of 1939 and showing the horrors of the Holocaust. The movie also features some great actors. Not only the actors but also the music is excellent. The movie is very moving. It is an excellent movie to see in the theaters. I highly recommend it.

The movie is incredibly moving. It is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It was wonderful to see so many people come together and work to make sure no one ever has to live the same fate again. We all know how horrible the war was for women and children but it is shocking to see how much destruction is still happening today. I have never seen such a powerful movie. It was full of emotion and sadness. I couldn't get out of my seat for a single moment during this movie. It will not disappoint you. I can't wait to see the sequel.

I really enjoyed this movie. The most powerful image is at the beginning, when the sun shines into the steam rising from the refinery. I also loved the scene in the end when Churchill and his staff and the slaves are on a train being escorted by troops. It was so beautiful to see. The cinematography was amazing. I loved that the setting of the British Prime Minister was London. I loved how it was filmed in black and white. I especially loved how the story was told through voice-over, which is normally done very poorly in movies. There were some flaws in the movie that I did not like, but overall, I really enjoyed it. I wish there was more of it. I also thought the writing was very good, and I think it was very true to Churchill's actions and speeches. Overall, I think this is a very good movie, and I would recommend it.

I must confess that I am a little biased to this movie because I've been a soldier in WWII and to me this movie is just as good as Saving Private Ryan. Tom Hanks really did an amazing job playing a soldier who was never talked to by anyone and no one was a little guy or a senior officer. The movie is a bit of a political allegory. It is also quite funny. My best friend's dad fought in WW2 and he was sitting next to my mother who was in the military. She said to me when she was older that I was a little kid and she was a little boy. I'm sure some people in this movie are little kids. Anyway, I think this is an amazing movie and I would have to give it a 9 out of 10.

This is my favorite film of the year, and one of the greatest films of all time. By far the most incredible movie ever made. The performances by all cast members are amazing, but particularly that of Tom Hanks. The movie will touch you, it will touch you so deeply that you will be crying and sobbing at the end, it will make you laugh and cry. It will make you think, and it will make you cry. A movie for every age. Brilliant, superb, great, great, great. It's got it all. I have seen it twice, and I will watch it again soon. It's amazing. My absolute favorite movie of all time.

The way it was written and directed. Well done to all involved. A great film. Everyone should see it. The cast and crew should be proud.

This is the most powerful film of the year. We know what war is like from the news we receive, but this film makes you go deeper into the horrors of war. We see the futility of war in the lives of the soldiers, the guilt of their fathers, the realization of their feelings, and the "darkest hour" of the war. This movie has everything you want to see in a war movie: the actors are terrific, the settings are incredible, and the scenes are filmed with such precision that it makes you want to go back in time to the time of the films and to the time of the men that made them. This movie is also in my top ten for a great film.

Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of historical films. I was a little disappointed when I saw this film. But in the end I thought it was a great film. The sound of the movie is outstanding, the cinematography is gorgeous. The actors are all very good in this film. All of them are very believable. I love this movie. This is a film that will be a classic. The story of the film is excellent, as is the directing. I loved it, I thought it was a great film.

As a filmmaker, I've always admired Tom Hanks. I just loved how he portrayed this war on two levels. First, as a leader in one war. And second, as a character in another war. From "The Bridges of Madison County" to "My Left Foot", Tom Hanks always has acted his role to perfection. With "Fury" he finally proved his greatness. What can you say about a film like this that has had its own name for the last 40 years? It's simply an incredible film. This is the war that changed the course of history. And the men who fought it for the right to say, "I did my duty, sir." The men of "Fury" fought for the right to say, "We did our duty, sir." Tom Hanks as captain Buck Turgidson is perfection. He brought so much emotion and strength to the role. When his men say, "I'll be back" he answers, "I'll be back." And when they say, "We'll be back" he replies, "I'll be back." Tom Hanks is the best actor working today. He plays the role of a hero in this film and he brings it to life. Robert Duvall plays the role of General George Patton. His performance is truly amazing. But it is Robert Duvall that really carries the film. Robert Duvall should have won the Oscar for his performance as General Patton. This film is so moving and it has made history. It has brought back memories of the men who fought this war and it has changed the course of history. This is the war that changed history. So don't miss this film. Go see it. You won't be disappointed. 10/10

For me, it is the only good film of this decade and I can't see why it was not nominated for an Oscar. No doubt, it is a Hollywood masterpiece, but it is also a very realistic and beautiful film. It shows how, in the end, the man who believes he has everything is afraid to lose it all. And it shows how, when everything is lost, he can only remember the love that he had for his son and the love he had for the mother of his son, and he can never forget that. The movie is a superb film, I recommend it to all. 10/10.

With the worst British film of the year being Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and having already made a truly fantastic film which is Atonement, it is always refreshing to see a film that is as good as the previous film, and in this case that film is a masterpiece. An absolute piece of work and the best film of the year so far. The only issue I had with the film is that the character of Dumbledore was a bit one-dimensional and had not been developed in the film, this was a huge disappointment for me because I really wanted to see Dumbledore develop and learn more about Harry Potter, and he didn't. The reason for this was because the movie was very dark and had very dark themes that could have been developed in the film. Another thing that I didn't like was that the film was almost five hours long and I think they could have cut some of the scenes in the film. I do however think that it is very important that the film is the best that it can be and that it not be like the last two films of the series. Although I believe that the films that it is based on were much better than this film, but still, I thought that it was a very good film, I think that it was worth the money. I think that everyone should watch it, it's that good. It is a masterpiece and it is a must watch for everyone.

It is always a pleasure to see a new film, which brings a fresh approach to the genre. While not the best film ever made, it was very well done, and I have to say, I thought it was a great movie. First, the director, Christopher Nolan, wrote this movie. I think the actors were great. I believe that they were not only playing the parts of the character, but also the person playing them, so I was able to feel their emotions. I think that this film is a must see, and for me, it was worth every second of it. I would like to thank the director and all of the cast for a very enjoyable film.

To those who claim this film has no plot, its about the art of war, I can only say that we were there. We were the poor starving minority. We lived in cramped quarters of a coal bunker, and we didn't have a choice. Our constant rifles, machine guns, bayonets, grenades and bullets were the only way we could survive. I'm from the Ukraine, I know what it was like to live in those days. We lived in constant fear of the Red Army who would come and take everything away from us. And then they came. They came, they came and they came. And the air was filled with so much fear. And then we would get lucky and survive. Those days where we were fed and our children were educated were days that we will never forget. The book "War Is Hell" talks about how we lost our freedom. War is Hell, our freedom was never as free as we thought it was. We were just a few stragglers in the forest of freedom. I think that's why people who don't understand the real history don't like it. But the movie did an amazing job at depicting what it was like. I can't wait for the DVD to come out!

It is a real shame that this movie is not getting the credit it deserves. First, it is based on a true story about Churchill. The film accurately depicts his actions in the later stages of the Second World War. Churchill, as a nation, is represented in the film by a brilliant actor who has brilliantly portrayed the image of Churchill. We can see that there is no one person who can truly represent the man. There is a great story behind him, and the movie doesn't disappoint. The movie is well-written and well-acted. All in all, a great movie.

This movie is the best ever. The acting is so powerful, the script is so true. These are the things that the greats were all about. That's why I think this movie is so good. If you like movies like 'Bram Stoker's Dracula', 'Schindler's List' and 'The Lord of the Rings', then you need to see this movie. This movie is so good it is impossible not to like it. I have seen it 2 times in the last 3 days. If you don't like it, don't watch it, but I can guarantee you that you will not miss the ending of the movie. If you are not a fan of the movie, you will not miss it. I'm sorry that I didn't get to talk much about the movie, but I was so excited for it to come out and I can't wait to see it again.

Absolutely brilliant. Every scene you see is so beautifully done that I just couldn't get enough of it. Every time I re-watch it I can't stop thinking of it. I wish this film was longer, it could have been an amazing 7 1/2 hours, but I can't wait for it to be out on DVD. Highly recommend.

I watched this movie 3 times in a week and then gave it a 4th viewing the next day. It was so engaging that I found myself reflecting on the film in retrospect and trying to understand why I had been so drawn in. The action was so intense and the cast was so compelling that I found myself sobbing and praying for the characters to overcome their fear and triumph. I do not agree with those who say that this movie is weak. I have been a film critic for 40 years and I have never seen a film that I felt was weak in the way this one was. This movie was the best I have ever seen. Well done.

This is a great movie. One of the best movies I have ever seen. It is very similar to the book, but I do not think it was perfect. If you like the book and watch the movie you will find some things in the movie that were not in the book. I think that the action scenes were just a little bit exaggerated, but I think that is what the director wanted. There was a scene where the guy is running and suddenly he gets shot. In the book that scene would have been in the movie because it was a little bit too exaggerated. I think the movie was good because of the great acting, special effects, and story line.

At first, I had to look for the warning "spoiler" in the description of the DVD. There is one, but you have to be careful. The movie doesn't have the violence of the first "Harry Potter" and "The Lord of the Rings". It's more like an exploration of human psychology. The characters are all very believable and intelligent. They are people you feel compassion for. The story line is more about the human condition than the battle between good and evil. We all want to know what happens next, what is at stake, and what will happen to us. This movie doesn't have any cheap tricks to keep the audience interested. It's all real and honest. To me, this is the best movie of the year. I think it will become a classic.

This movie is more than just about the campaign for democracy. This movie takes a look at the great powers of the world - Germany, France, England, Russia. They all do what they do and they have great influence. The Germans have great influence on the Russians, the English influence on the French, and the Russian influence on the Germans. If you want to know more about these countries, go to wikipedia, then read the most comprehensive book on them, but then watch this movie. The movie has a good plot, a good cast, and a good music score. Don't miss this movie, it will make you think. I give it a 9.
