Darkman III - Die Darkman Die (1995)
Movie InfoDr. Westlake/Darkman (Arnold Vosloo) is up to his old tricks, stealing from the bad and keeping for himself while still trying to perfect his synthetic skin which only lasts 99 minutes in the light. After stealing from industrialist and mobster/drug dealer Peter Rooker (Jeff Fahey), Westlake is approached by Dr. Bridget Thorne (Darlanne Fluegel) who is engaged to perform an operation to relieve his pain, but instead she implants in his brain a special device that enables his enemies to control him by inducing unbearable pain. With the help of double-crossing Dr. Thorne, Rooker wants to create a new drug based on Darkman's research. But Darkman strikes back by infiltrating Rooker's gang and his life. Darkman even starts to feel drawn to Rooker's wife Angela (Roxann Biggs-Dawson) and her daughter, who are neglected by the real Rooker. But in disguise, Darkman is able to cling to a normal life, posing as a family man. Even though this sequel was filmed before Darkman II: The Return of Durant, it was ultimately decided that it should be bumped back to part three. This direct-to-video sequel is however, in many ways, superior to the first sequel. Fahey makes an excellent villain combining the best of what made Larry Drake and Colin Friels so enjoyable in the original. Vosloo still can't capture the essence and power of Liam Neeson's character portrayal, but he does a good enough job. Fans of the saga will go feverish over this sequel and others with find it fun as well. ~ Sean D. MacLaggan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Darkman III - Die Darkman Die
Definitely suffers from flaws, but it's an enthusiastic, tense, and exciting finale...
Suffers from the normal low-budget sequel afflictions (spotty FX, lesser actors, skimpier action, lamer dialog).
Perfect for USA Network's Up All Night.
Audience Reviews for Darkman III - Die Darkman Die
I didn't think it could get any worse than Darkman II but I was wrong. For a Doctor, he's isn't very clever, just get a skin graft dude! The bad guys are pretty bad here, 1996 was pretty late in the day for the big-suited, shoulder-padded pony-tailed villain, no? Again, Bradford May relies on old stock footage from the first film and decides to shoot before actually writing a script. It's terribly dull and a shadow of the original.
This third Darkman series is not great than the second one with Arnold Vosloo who returns again as the title role.
Vosloo seems alternatively bored and exuberant from scene to scene, to be honest, he still does okay, and Jeff Fahey, while a joy to watch as an over-the-top villain, just doesn't quite fit in with the series.
The use of OTT visuals and nightmare vision scenes is retained and very like Sam Raimi's style - in fact some of the shot almost mirror the first film. While Westlake lacks some of the craziness that he had in the first film he is still a tortured soul - it's just a shame that this is mixed with the image of him as a sort of Batman figure.
This should have been named Go Away Darkman and please don't comeback, its about as good as Rocky 56 would have been, Its been over 10 years so I guess we will not see anymore of Darkman. Not with this crew of actors anyway. Now that I have seen all 3 Darkman films I like the 1st one best. Liam Neeson made the best Darkman, when making the sequels they should have either waited for Liam or offered him more money and maybe this Trilogy would have taken off. Larry Drake Made the best bad guy in this series and it also sky rocked him in the bad guy roll. But again he didn?t return for Darkman III after all how could he arise from the dead a second time. At the end of Darkman 3 you can see where there is the possibility of a Darkman 4 but it never happen, Thank the Stars. I wouldn?t put Darkman in the class of Indiana Jones , Nightmare on Elm Street, or Die Hard when it comes to Movie Collections, If you get the trilogy as I did for under $10 go for it, if not I wouldn't pay for a copy of this nor would I rent it.More
