**Secrets always find its way out!**
Actually not a bad film. Seeing the poster, you can expect the kids films like ‘ET’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Goonies’, et cetera kind. But it was a different. More matured kind of narration. Then the characters are still teenagers and as usual their mischievous lands them a big trouble. So the four friends set to wander around, but soon when they met with an accident, they decide to resolve it in their way. But it begins to take a twist when one of them goes berserk. Once again, they have to come up with something to end it all for good. It becomes more intense and ends with a decent finale.
The casting was so good. These boys were really great. The story does not look that fine, but the way it was made and performances puts it on the top. Looks like they are future big stars. It was from a cinematographer turned filmmaker. It’s his first direction and a fine debut. I don’t know the title meant exactly what the it had narrated, but convincing enough. So one of the decent thriller from the year, definitely worth a watch.
Any time a movie looks like it’s trying to hit the “Fucked Up Coming of Age Movie” notes, I’m interested. _Super Dark Times_ is perhaps not the grandest example of them all, but it’s still a very good one.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Intriguing until it’s not
If there’s another 2017 film that starts off really well and continues greatness until it loses all its momentum and potential and becomes a mess in its third act, then I haven’t seen it. This film is an intriguing but realistic psychological drama/thriller for its first two acts and then decides to become a genre film instead. By doing so, it loses everything that made it interesting. Maybe in retrospect and on a possible rewatch I will think the third act is fine for what it is, but it’s such a shame the turn the film makes. Still, it remains a worthy effort overall, with some fine performances from its cast and some effective imagery.
I had Super Dark Times watching this movie
Snowy or rainy days are moody and great to stay home curled up with a coffee, hot chocolate, or beverage of your choice watching films. What I just wrote is an example of “setting” and it works powerfully in Super Dark Times. The question I will answer in this review is: “Does it work well enough?” I have to report, I didn’t think so.
In preparing for this review I watched and reviewed Mean Creek with Josh Peck in a surprisingly good serious role. Someone said they were similar movies. I actually think the Peck film is better because it doesn’t play tricks on you, it just “is what it is.” The third act of Super Dark Times has some plot and characterization issues. So much in fact that I started losing interest. I rarely lose interest in 3rd acts. The lame at best, predictable at worst ending is satisfying enough but I felt let down by this film.
Kevin Phillips is a new director and I applaud him for the moody New England look of the film. After that, I thought all the males were substandard for the movie and they really brought it down. The females did great acting work and helped make the situations believable. Screaming, bleeding, and breaking things are really the only parts of this film that flesh out these characters. I truly enjoy mood and cinematography in a film but it should go in concert with a simple story that plays out, credits to credits rather than one that makes you work until you literally get a headache. All the cool photography in the world can’t compete with ibuprofen there. It had some good parts, and I look forward to what Kevin Phillips does in the coming years. This one didn’t do it for me.
