Darkest Minds: Rainbow
They grow slightly older and have kids. Some of those kids are new colours. I like purple. Purple is cool.
Really bad, the kind of thing that probably at least would have been commercially succesful about five years ago, but now? Ends up not only a box office lightweight, but also a failure of a story.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
The Darkest Minds: Another doomed franchise
The Darkest Minds is the latest teen sci-fi franchise alike Hunger Games, Divergent, Twilight, The Host etc etc etc and alike the majority of them will never be a fully told story.
It tells the tale of a world where 90% of kids die leaving the remaining ones with a selection of super powers (For some unexplained reason). The government rounds them up and incarcerates them out of fear killing off the more powerful ones.
It follows the tale of one girl who is smuggled out and goes on the run. But who can she trust?
Personally I loved the concept, such potential! Under the circumstances a television series would have made a tremendous amount more sense as I think this is all we’re ever going to see from the Darkest Minds universe.
Our leading lady is fantastic, truly stellar performance and it wasn’t until late in the film I realised it was Rue from the Hunger Games (2012) all grown up. Alongside her we have the excellent Bradley Whitford, Wade Williams, Mandy Moore and Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie (Though all of them are rather brief).
One thing that struck me was the leading man Harris Dickinson, he just wasn’t up to the job in any respect and felt like a weak link throughout. I can’t imagine how he got the job and question castings logic with that one.
The main issue with the movie is that it’s the same as the rest. What I mean by that is these teen sci-fi types take a concept and then surround it by the usual tropes that are so blatant and so excessive it damages them beyond repair. This made the film cliched beyond words and criminally predictible.
All things considered it could be worse but all the teen sci-fi tropes, the fact this is all we’ll get and thus leaving us with an incomplete story and a weak leading man stopped any potential it had dead in its tracks.
Great for what it is and I see the appeal, but this is to the movie industry what pop is to the music industry.
Decent supporting cast
Some very good ideas
Hearts in the right place
Too many tropes
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Hollywood needs to go back to the drawing board on this genre
A world without kids sounds like my kind of place
The Vidiot Reviews….
The Darkest Minds
Teenagers already wield the greatest superpower around: they cannot be tried as adults.
However, the special abilities the teens in this sci-fi movie have don’t vanish at eighteen.
When a disease wipes out most of the world’s underage population, it leaves the survivors with strange new talents that the government colour code per individual powers. But when Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) registers as an orange, her power to possess minds makes her highly sought-after by a subversive group leader (Mandy Moore). Luckily Ruby has friends to help make the right choice.
Boasting clichéd superpowers, pointless musical montages and a love triangle that dominates the majority of the story, this adaptation of the similarly named YA novel is the last vestige of the dystopian teen genre. Unfortunately, it does little to reignite any interest in the tired concept.
Incidentally, the easiest way to defeat any super-powered teenager is by giving them mono. Red Light
