Hold The Dark Review

<< Home

If you own a Netflix account you might have stumbled upon the movie Hold The Dark. After the deaths of three children suspected to be killed by wolves, writer Russell Core is hired by the parents of a missing six-year-old boy to track down and locate their son in the Alaskan wilderness.

Now, I do not want to call this movie trash. I am more than sure some people find it great but unfortunately, I am not one of them.

The story starts strong.I was intrigued to find out what's really going on and, well, it didn't take more than 30-40 something minutes to do so. The story wasn't anything too special. Since I don't want to spoil the movie I can't tell you everything that happened, but what I can tell you is that this movie's story is based around revenge , for the first part (watch it and you'll understand) and that after no more than halfway through the movie, you can already foresee the ending but I am not going to bash this movie for it. It's 2018 and a movie with and ending that's not predictable is hard to find.

Besides the story being very mediocre, this movie had some good things to offer: beautiful cinematography, good acting, and at certain moments, a great atmosphere, but that's not enough to make me ignore it's flaws and it's pretty blank story.

Final verdict: 5.5/10
