Dark City is one of the best neo-noir films ever. It combines the dark, dystopian vision of "Blade Runner" with some cinematic nods to past films of the 1930's and 40's. The film crafts an intriguing, detective story plot, while still concluding with a glimmer of beauty and hope (That last scene is iconic.)

Overlooked and underrated. Visionary sci-fi elements mixed with a great unfolding mystery. Director's cut adds more and is a better version of the film, in my opinion.

Dark CIty is a unique sci-fi. The filming is very dark and really adds to the overall mystery of the movie.

"Dark City" by Yojimbo

Dark City has the dubious honour of being known as "the film that's not as good as The Matrix." Released a year earlier and featuring some very similar ideas, it is the story of an amnesiac, stalked by mysterious black clad strangers who can alter reality through a city that's shrouded in perpetual darkness. In fact the whole concept of the hero with no memory, hunting for clues through darkened streets reminded me a lot more of a videogame plot, and to be honest, it felt as underdeveloped and episodic as one too. The performances did not help either; Rufus Sewell's hero is about as memorable and charismatic as a dead TV channel, Jennifer Connelly acts like a prom queen in a high school play and Kiefer Sutherland (at his least bankable, when everyone was sick of the bratpack and the 24 cr...

Dark City review

John Murdoch (Sewell) is being hunted by the Strangers. Dr. Daniel Schreber (Sutherland) was able to explain the reasons behind the city, Strangers and the reason for people to forget their memories. Emma (Connelly) is baffled about his husband’s reactions. Inspector Frank Bumstead (William Hurt) aids John to solve the mystery of the murders and forgetfulness of human’s. Anna invites John in the end to go to Shell Beach. The acting and soundtrack was decent, the thing that stood out was the screenplay and visual effects. Pace of the story was way better than Blade Runner. Some memorable dialogue: John Murdoch – “..everything you remember, and everything I’m supposed to remember never really happened. Someone just wants us to think it did.” Dr. Daniel Schreber – “The only place hom...
