    "It's nice to see the pressure of handling politics in the eyes of the leaders. While we cry foul that they use us as chesspieces, the Darkest Hour showed how Winston Churchill handled the pressure from Nazi Germany. It an impressive war movie."

    "This film is a historical revisionism: Japan NEVER bombed the hospitals of Hawaii! Michael Bay just did it for the sake of explosions. It's more of a love story than the actual war."
