Alone in the Dark

It's tepid cinema, truncated, abbreviated. It panders to the kind of aesthetic that says loose cutting and sloppy formalism is not only ok, it's the way studio films should be done. Alone in the Dark is a genre film with no direction. It's Aliens without the brains. Pitch Black without the dense geography. It grasps at focus, only to slip constantly into chaos. It is, quite literally, a film that is everything to no one at all.

The worst film of the year.
