He's only four films old, but his acting skills can give some seasoned actors a run for their money. With every movie, he just outshines himself. He has a knack for playing dark and extremely layered characters. OK, sorry for my spiel. Now the movie........... it's WORTH WATCHING! It's not perfect or unpredictable, but it's a good movie that holds on to you. You are eager to find out what's coming next.

Victor T (jp) wrote: Back in 1999 a film called "The Matrix" blew the mind of countless people as they saw it as an original concept, but I am here to say that if you believe that then you are wrong. Some films/comics/TV series have already approached the idea of mankind being the slave of another superior race and/or that everything you thought was real is not (the latter idea has been around since the times of Ancient Greece). Some examples of this statement are the original TV miniseries "V", John Carpenters "They Live", the Japanese manga "Ghost in the Shell", the comic "The Invisibles", the dramedy "The Truman Show", and the overlooked cult classic "Dark City". J. Murdoch is a man who can't remember anything from his life. In his search for answers, he starts to unravel a conspiracy that makes him doubt of his own existence. Just to clarify, I watch the Directors Cut and I recommend you watch it instead of the Theatrical Cut. Director Alex Proyas had met some critical acclaim with the stylish "The Crow", so it's no surprise that he managed to surprise audiences with his follow-up film. "Dark City" counts with peculiar acting, either it is solid or it is hammy (with the perfect example being Keifer Sutherland); a fantastic twisted story that has a lot of surprises and it is filled with creativity, a suspense vibe that will grab your attention and put you in the edge of your seat, some beautiful surreal visuals, Proyass directing is as energetic and stylish as it was in "The Crow" (it really reminds of Terry Gilliam), the setting is a bizarre but gorgeous combination of "Metropolis" and "Blade Runner", the themes are executed with subtlety and they ask some interesting thought provoking questions, the atmosphere is a gorgeous film noir tribute, the production design perfectly recreates the fashion of the 40s, the pacing is adequately slow as it takes its time to provide explanations, the character relationships surprisingly feel genuine (I say surprisingly considering the story), the cinematography is beautiful, and it has a big entertainment value. But even with all that greatness, "Dark City" has its flaws. The CGI is bad and as the film progresses it gets worse (sure, it is an element that can be forgiven due to all the things this film gets right but they take you out of the experience more than once), the characters arent memorable, and by the time the film finishes to surprises us and answers all the questions presented in the story (around the 90 minute mark), the film goes to a laughable action sequence that its reminiscent of the anime "Akira" but it doesn't work with the style the film has set. "Dark City" is one of the best-if not the best- science fiction films of the 90s. It is clever, fun, thought provoking, stylish, surprising, a well-made tribute to film noir, and beautiful to watch. One of the best films of the uneven year that 1998 was, a must see for sci-fi fans and people who like puzzle films. This is what "The Matrix" failed to be.
Ben L (es) wrote: Citizen Kane is one of those rare films where I appreciate the craftsmanship, admire the performances, applaud how it influenced cinema, but simultaneously don't love the story. I think there is a lot of great things going on in this script, and I see what they're trying to do, but I experienced a notable disconnect with the characters in the film. I acknowledge that they made a good choice introducing us to Kane as a young boy and showing how he developed into an aggressive but relatively noble young man. At this point I should be sympathizing with him, and have the same connection back to the innocence of his childhood that he had when he grew into a (seemingly) heartless tycoon. Yet for some reason I didn't make that connection, perhaps it was the short length of so many of the flashbacks which made it hard for me to relax and really get to know the characters. Naturally, since Citizen Kane is often considered one of the greatest movies of all time I feel compelled to defend my opinion simply because I'm not praising it on that level. However, there was so much that I thought was fabulous in the film. The composition of the shots was remarkable and clearly was planned out perfectly. The use of light and shadows was tremendous. The set design conveyed things to the audience without needing extra dialogue. There was so much that is right in this film that it seems a shame I instantly jump to the defensive and search for nitpicks. I wonder if, with more views I might embrace Citizen Kane even more. However, on my first watch I can see why it is so highly regarded but I can't lift it up to that height myself.

The sidekick knows everything there is to know about vampire, and is intelligent as hell while Kronos, our hero, is like the gunslinger of fencing swords... or should I say samurai? Well that's actually where this film gets interesting as it shares so many attributes with the Italian western or the samurai film. Not only that but it has a healthy dose of Italian and French exploitation appeal, and is produced by a British studio (Hammer, to be exact). So what you have is a cowboy/samurai/brit-horror hybrid or sorts that works despite it's slow parts and especially because of it's cheese and B appeal. It climaxes in an excited sword fight as well.How can you loose?

Whats with all the bad rotten tomatoe ratings you bunch of assholes, hey?!
