High energy action film with a comic book feel

by Jackie Dan on 3/11/2000

This is the movie the 'Batman' sequels wish they could be. A dark, brooding examination of a man whose identity and life is taken from him during an attack by criminals and the revenge he seeks. This sci-fi/action movie gets corny at times (especially with the dialogue and the fact that the bad guys can't shoot worth a hoot) but it is a fun movie to watch none the less due to Sam Raimi's wonderful directing style. Check it out! Read More

Disguised as different characters, the Darkman seeks out the men who ruined him and exacts brutal revenge.
Reviews
New York Times "...An ambitious and self-consciously old-fashioned film....Terrific effects..." 08/24/1990 p.C15
Entertainment Weekly "...A hilarious homage to comic-book superheroes..." -- Rating: B 07/14/1995 p.64
Los Angeles Times "...[The film] successfully captures the graphic look, rhythm and style of the super-hero books....DARKMAN somehow stays in a comic-book universe: a world of satire and swoony self-caricature..." 08/24/1990 p.F10
Wall Street Journal "An elegant admixture of horror and humor, it stars Liam Neeson as Peyton Westlake, a disfigured scientific genius who becomes the tormented antihero of the title." 05/29/2009
Premiere 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A campy superhero flick that could only be made by Sam Raimi. It's fun, it's gruesome, it's tacky, and it's the ideal midnight movie." 06/14/2010
