Of its kind it's a rather good tale - Darkman review by RP

Spoiler Alert
25/04/2012

Another darkly humorous film directed by Sam Raimi, 'Darkman' is a sort of comic-book tale – yet not based on a comic. It also has the advantage of having big-name actors Liam Neeson in the lead role and also Frances McNormand who went on the win a Best Actress Oscar for her role in the Coen brothers' 'Fargo'. 'Darkman' tells the tale of Peyton Westlake, a scientist working on synthetic skin whose face is hideously burned when gangsters bust up the lab. Westlake survives to take revenge, using the synthetic skin to disguise his disfigured face – but there's a catch: the synthetic skin only last for 99 minutes before disintegrating... Yes, it's all most unlikely, but of its kind it's a rather good tale. Recommended – 3/5 stars. Or should that be 4 stars?

SORT OF 1960'S HORROR - Darkman review by TH

Spoiler Alert
06/03/2018

This film has the air of a 1960's cheap Hammer horror film. Poor story (contrived). Remenicent of the Phantom of the Opera. Poor production/ effects. The well known actors do not help retrieve the film.

Completely OTT - Darkman review by AB

Spoiler Alert
29/04/2019

Poor storyline, poor acting, faux super powers, standard baddies (who like them all, cannot shoot straight). Pretty dreadful over all
