Garcia plays a former CIA operative turned political talk show host, who is hired by a corporate whistle blower (Unger) to expose her company’s cover-up of a massacre in a South American village. When he arrives, he is plunged into a violent and chaotic situation, with the military cracking down on a group of protesters led by a pair of activists (Longoria and Whitaker). The ever-increasing depletion of earth’s natural resource of water serves as the backdrop for this tense environmental thriller.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
A self-serious eco-thriller assembled with a competent but heavy hand.Justin Chang, Variety, 01.04.2013
For all the attempted intrigue and mayhem, the film is dullsville, mired by a poky script, unremarkable action and, the hard-working Garcia aside, uninspired performances.Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 01.10.2013
The film's heart is in exactly the right place, but there's not a brain in its pretty little head.Chris Packham, Village Voice, 01.02.2013
A slog of a thriller that tries for relevance with an environmental message, A Dark Truth's biggest mystery is how so many "name" actors ended up in this torpid turkey.Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 01.10.2013
