Expert Review Darkman - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 6/15/2010 4:53 PM
If you’ve ever witnessed his performances in films like The Haunting (1999), Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, and, more recently, Clash Of The Titans, you might think Liam Neeson is the kind of guy that phones his roles in and collects a rather meaty paycheck afterward. The same theory can also be appled to director Sam Raimi, who lost most of his reputation after helming the hugely successful but utterly terrible Spider-Man 3. Should any of you doubt the validity of either Neeson or Raimi, however, this would be the ideal time to revisit their only collaboration together, 1990’s Darkman, which is now available on Blu-ray from Universal Studios....read the full review

A scientist disfigured by a gang of sadistic criminals develops a mask-like second skin which allows him to change identities.

Disguised as different characters, the Darkman seeks out the men who ruined him and exacts brutal revenge.

Professional 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
