The tone of the film abruptly shifts to tongue-in-cheek toward the end, damaging the feeling.

A wild ride in dumb escapist sci-fi hokum.

Raimi's over-the-top filmic style tries too hard for cult movie status and becomes boring somewhere along the line. True cult movies are however born, not made, that way.

Darkman sustains mild interest throughout, but it never takes off, partly because a real-estate scam, gangland shootouts, city corruption and a love story clutter up the sad story of Westlake's strange mutation.

Truly the overall film is quite good, but the audience will likely be moved to unintended laughter on occasion and the film is sometimes too surreally silly to truly feel as "dark" as Darkman.

Darkman is a bizarre little film that merges together horror, sci-fi, comedy, romance, drama, and action into one hell of an entertaining movie.

Darkman still remains one of Sam Raimi's most ambitious projects to date and it's hard to do anything but admire the kind of lofty ambitions Raimi tosses at the screen with his self-created superhero crime thriller/dark comedy mash-up.

It's all very colorful and pulpy and (thanks to Raimi's mega-slick direction) a real treat for the senses.

...comicbook slapstick and off-the-hook mania in a combination only previously seen in Evil Dead II.

A wild and fun ride from Sam Raimi.

Darkman remains a powerful picture, isolating a pitch of superhero sadness while amplifying the rest with a comforting church-bell clang of violence. A sly Bruce Campbell cameo is merely icing on the cake.

It comes on exceptionally strong, sure of itself and its basic, primitive hold on the audience.

Raimi's flair for jazzy visual effects and extravagant action sequences, combined with direction that's full of punch and energy, makes this the best pop roller-coaster ride around.
