The Dark­man Tril­ogy

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Dvd & blu- ray -

Re­lease Date: OUT NOW!

1990- 1999 | 18 | Blu- ray Af­ter Sam Raimi was un­able to ac­quire the rights to the Shadow, he cre­ated his own su­per­hero in­stead: a crime­fighter who’s a mas­ter of dis­guise ( thanks to ar­ti­fi­cial skin tech­nol­ogy) and feels no pain ( thanks to surgery). Liam Nee­son is en­joy­ably over- the- top as the sci­en­tist out for re­venge on the mob­ster who blew up his lab, dis­fig­ur­ing him and killing his girl­friend. In some ways a dry- run for Raimi’s Spi­der- Man tril­ogy, Dark­man is blessed with fre­netic ac­tion and the sort of dark slap­stick hu­mour which will ap­peal to fans of the Evil Dead movies. The two DTV se­quels ( which re­cast the hero) are throw­away schlock.
