    The script is a hot mess of the highest order, taking some of the stalest chestnuts in the long, venerated legacy of the framed-cop-trying-to-clear-his-name genre and somehow f---ing it up, in scene after scene after scene.

    While full of welcome gore and blood spatter, it's bankrupt of any creative spark.

    What pushes the film, at long last, into the icy river, is its very design, as a monument to slick, mercenary grandeur.

    There's something about these films, something about the working-over these songs suffer--a wrongness that's intangible but inescapable, like the unseen menace of a bad dream.

    It's all very "found footage," Impolex by way of Discovery's The Colony, only with a lot more in the way of familiar consumer products.

    It's that rare thing, a movie that clocks in under 90 minutes, but feels like an endurance test in every moment, at every plot concern, and every musical number.

    Caters almost exclusively to the remedial, Duplo Blocks demographic, leaving parents and guardians bored to distraction.

    As film theorist Siegfried Kracauer once wrote, to paraphrase, art often blooms in the most hostile soil. No such luck here.

    It's the rare film that should not introduce new story elements or characters past its first act. In Darkness, a garbage movie applying for unlimited credit on the most meager collateral, is that film.

    Made possible by the half a billion dollars Clash of the Titans garnered worldwide, Wrath of the Titans sputters and coughs on the fumes of its own inevitability.
