Avengers star Mark Ruffalo plays an altogether more down to Earth hero in urgent and angry environmental drama Dark Waters. The film is based on a shocking true story, and stars Ruffalo as a defence attorney who exposes the actions of a chemical conglomerate that have been steadily poisoning an American town's water supply.
The film is directed by acclaimed Carol filmmaker Todd Haynes, and co-stars Anne Hathaway and Tim Robbins. Cineworld Unlimited members got to see the movie in advance of its UK release date, so what did they make of it?
We'll start with this from Dave Billingsley who praises the movie as an important yet uncomfortable watch.
@cineworld #DarkWaters is right up there with my best of 2020. Gripping, yet very unsettling that it is about a product that the vast majority of us have used without a second thought. Great performances by @MarkRuffalo & Anne Hathaway. A must watch.— Dave Billingsley (@dab051176) February 18, 2020
Sir Dan Mumford describes it as a horror movie in all but name.
Wow... #DarkWaters Great movie, very well told, but one of the most horrifying non horror films I've seen, how a company and people can be so corrupt and get away with basically a slap on the wrist! Definitely a must watch film! #UnlimitedScreening #Teflon— Sir Dan Mumford @DanRogueMumford) February 18, 2020
Hazel Drummond says the movie will surely inspire people to take action.
Wow, what an eye opener of multi billion dollar corruption that was.— Hazel Drummond(@Croft2012) February 18, 2020
As soon as the word #Teflon was mentioned in conjunction chemical poisoning, I wanted to rush home and clear my kitchen cupboards of any suspect pans. #DarkWaters A must see movie!!#Unlimited
Daniel says the movie is an eye-opening experience that sheds important light on an essential subject.

Katie Butters lauds Mark Ruffalo for putting his A-list support behind the movie.
@cineworld really great #UnlimitedScreening #DeepWater - it’s so crazy this is still ongoing. Awesome work @MarkRuffalo in the film standing up to DuPont to fight justice. I will recommend this film to everyone.— Katie Butters (@KatieJButters) February 18, 2020
And Kyle Liles describes it as the best movie of the year so far.
#DarkWaters needs to be seen by everyone. Just got out of the #unlimitedscreening at @cineworld and I'm so glad I watched it such a powerful film and am very happy to say it's easily the best film I've seen so far in 2020. Seriously go see this movie.— Kye Liles (@KyeLiles) February 18, 2020
