Plot Summary

In the jungles of Ecuador, blood taints the waters. A multinational conglomerate's unholy alliance with a bloodthirsty military regime has resulted in a massacre. Only the rebel Francisco Franco (Forest Whitaker, Repo Men) and his determined wife Mia (Eva Longoria, TV's "Desperate Housewives") can prove the truth. To settle a personal debt, former CIA agent Jack Begosian (Andy Garcia, Ocean's 13) takes on the freelance assignment to rescue Francisco and risks everything in a brutal battle to expose the cover-up.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A self-serious eco-thriller assembled with a competent but heavy hand. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jan 4, 2013

Rotten: 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, Jan 10, 2013

Rotten: 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, Jan 2, 2013

Rotten: 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, Jan 10, 2013

APPLE should not inflate the prices of movies and add the tag "SEE NOW BEFORE IT'S IN THEATERS!" when it's extremely clear that the movie will never BE in theaters, and will be a freebie on Netflix in the near future- this is NOT a movie that will make it to theaters, it's clearly a direct to video film, but still good. But the ten dollar price is misleading, it's not that kind of production, and it's not designated for theaters. I dont mind pre-theater movies at ten dollars, but dont lie to me either.

Eva = TV

Andy ok, Forest better but Eva = made for TV if I've ever seen it. Like others have said why pay $10 for this movie why you can pay $8 and watch several movies including this one in a few weeks or days in some cases. SHAME ON YOU APPLE!

One star for apple not for the movie itself.

Big $$$ Rental - Was this ever in the theaters?

Big money rental … Was this ever in the theaters ??? The movie leaned too far to the "made for video" production. I don't recommend the 9.99 wasted on a movie which will be on Netflix in a week or two. 7.99 for Netflix and 9.99 for one hour - forty six minutes. iTunes has many decent finds and many amazing new releases, save your $$$ because this isn't one of those releases.
