Storyline Heading
When teens mysteriously develop powerful new abilities, they are declared a threat by the government and detained. Sixteen-year-old Ruby, one of the most powerful young people anyone has encountered, escapes her camp and joins a group of runaway teens seeking safe haven. Soon this newfound family realizes that, in a world in which the adults in power have betrayed them, running is not enough and they must wage a resistance, using their collective power to take back control of their future.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Sci-Fi Thriller - This is a science fiction action-adventure based on the young adult novel of the same name and therefore also aimed at teens. The more familiar veteran actors such as Mandy Moore, Bradley Whitford, and Gwendoline Christie only have smaller supporting roles, with the lead played by Amandla Stenberg, known from films such as The Hunger Games and Everything, Everything. While aimed at younger viewers, there is some language and action violence that would be too intense for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Certain scenes just don't work at all, like a painfully awkward dance scene in the film that's so poorly staged, the camera feels like a grown-up supervising a gym full of eighth graders at a dance. However, "The Darkest Minds” does manage to keep some of its bright moments shining.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...the film shifts from a focused, coherent vision of generational terror and oppression into a grab bag of lazily compiled genre tropes. The characters are rushed through the process of introduction and familiarization
