Critic Reviews for Darkman II - The Return of Durant
Doesn't quite match the maniacal tone from Raimi's film, but sticks true to the neo-pulp whimsy that the first film paid tribute to.
"Fun enough junk" would be a fair way to describe both Darkman sequels.
Horrible sequel, even for straight-to-video fare. Why would Durant be a big villain? He was a henchman. Darkman III was a tad better, but both sequels lack the Raimi touch.
Audience Reviews for Darkman II - The Return of Durant
Arnold Vosloo does an exceptional job taking over Liam Neeson's character in this straight-to-DVD non-stop action sequel film against his arch-enemy Durant (Larry Drake) who's back from the dead.
This movie which results is not a great one, but it's a neat watch. I prefer the original first.
Vosloo is good and convincing likable, had some cool one liners, and was a lot of fun to watch! Larry Drake is awesome as the main villain once again, he looks very menacing, very convincing, and was also a lot of fun to watch. Kim Delaney is hot and was decent as the reporter. Renee O'Connor is good with what she had to do, and was decent looking.
The writers did a very good thing by bringing back Drake as Durant.
What change the actor in a Super Hero Movie, well it happen in Batman, Superman, now in Darkman, But I ask you is Darkman really a Super Hero. Anyway we have a new Darkman, but I don't understand why they didn't just put in the movie that Darkman whipped himself up a new and better face. And my favorite Villain Larry Drake rose from the dead, he had to no one survives a helicopter crash that hits a bridge and explodes, but we see him come back to life out of a coma, and after that fiery crash, what no burns. am I to believe that, it would have played much better if he was burned and went after Darkmans formula, Right about now the director is saying hey why didn't I think of that. Anyway I'm glad I got the Darkman Trilogy for $9.99 which is about $5.00 to much, I pity the fool that seen this on the big screen when it came out. More like made for TV, but with the action it just makes 3 stars, Its in my collection but only because its a freebie. I can only hope Darkman 3 is better.
"Aren't you the pretty one?"
Darkman 2: The Return of Durant starts out with the ludicrous request that we all believe crime boss Durant could have survived that massive helicopter crash at the end of the first film. Incredibly, the almighty Robert G. Durant awakes from a three year coma to take control of his territory, and seems to be having a good time doing it.
Peyton Westlake (played by the Mummy's Arnold Vosloo) meets another scientist, David Brinkman, working on the same formula for synthetic skin that he has been trying to figure out, and Brinkman has made huge improvements. Brinkman proposes a partnership, which Westlake eagerly accepts. Sadly, Brinkman happens to live in a huge warehouse that Durant wants to buy because it is the ideal factory to construct illegal weapons, but Brinkman doesn't want to sell. The expected 'convincing' ends in Brinkman's death, and Westlake has to suffer through the loss of another partner. Kim Delaney plays a tenacious reporter, too bad her stint here is so brief.
