The only problem I have with Darkman is that on repeated viewings this could be seen as a comedy. However try and forget that. This film came out just a few months after the often hyped up but decent Batman film- But Darkman is the better one.
A dark, gnastly tale of deformation and revenge. Liam Neeson does his best as the acid victim who can transplant a new face on his, but only for a limited time. He plays the tragic hero well.
The bad guys could have been better- we're talking Knight Rider bad guys here. But there is enough action and coolness to please any fan. And any film directed by the great Sam Raimi is going to tick the boxes.
If you haven't seen this film give it a go- it made real noise when it was first released and this seems justified even today.
