Matrix Pre-loaded - Dark City review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
26/04/2005

Excellent performances from the cast make this an eeiree film full of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.

The story of a higher force controlling our lives is obviously a familiar one thanks to the Matrix but this film was out the year before the Matrix and this is a far darker version of a chilling story.

A film-stealing performance from Keifer Sutherland

A Genre Classic - Dark City review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
26/02/2009

The year before The Matrix was released and its sizeable influence since, I had the pleasure of seeing Dark City in the local cinema. Despite sinking without a trace, I'm pleased that many of us who did see the film, remembered the unique imagination it showed. So the opportunity to pick up the film in blu ray was too good to miss. This world is far from what it seems and those who live out their days on the surface are unaware of the real purpose of their existance. A very dark, gritty science fiction film that deserves your attention. Perhaps Kiefer Sutherland's best performance in a movie to date and Jennifer Connelly in an early role. It really has everything and this blu ray edition contains the theatrical and director versions, both very different. Much of the extra content concerns the issues bringing the film to the big screen and being given the go ahead. While other critics reflect on why it was overlooked, when clearly it deserved better.
