YA hodgepodge 'The Darkest Minds' whiffs on storyKids under the age of 18 are being persecuted by adults for their special powers in "The Darkest Minds," an adaptation of book one of Alexandra Bracken's young adult trilogy that's about five years and 15 movie dystopias too late to feel the least bit fresh or interesting. The stereotypically sinister military guys (like Wade Williams' "The Captain") running the camp she's in are suspicious and decide to stage a test to figure out what she really is, but a kindly nurse at the camp, Cate (Mandy Moore), helps her escape before that.This first 30 or so minutes is actually fairly riveting with interesting action and tension as we all get acclimated to this strange world, but soon it becomes clear that this story has no intention of actually going anywhere, in this movie at least.
