The Darkest Hour

I caught the latest "Teenagers save the world" scary film a couple of weeks back with the whole family.  Here's my short review:

There's not enough movie here.

Here's a little more:

Start with something nice?  Great special effects.
None of the characters have a chance to really develop.  That said, Emile Hirsch is decent in the film.
Did I already say "great special effects"?  I can't think of any other positives. 
What would have made this film better?  More story.  Better character development. 

Sorry for such an incomplete review.  It feels just like the movie.
