FILM REVIEW: DARK CITY

Starring Rufus Sewell, Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connelly, and William Hurt. This film is an elegant blend between rich science fiction and psychological thrills. The part that I enjoy most about this film is that it depicts my favorite superhuman ability, reality warping, which is called tuning in the film. The ultimate twist at the end is really mind-blowing and will answer questions you will be asking yourself as you watch. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys science fiction in its purest form as well as mysteries that will keep you constantly guessing what will happen next.

  1. I tried to like this. I really, really did. It has EVERYTHING I like in a film except it has Rufus Sewell… I just can’t get past my dislike of him as an actor. I’m a terrible human being I know. I own all of those great cult classics BUT I don’t own this strictly because of Rufus. Sorry!

  2. Sounds entertaining. I’ll have to check it out. How long has this movie been out? I don’t remember seeing anything about it lately.

  3. Saw Dark City in the theater (late 1990’s?) when it first came out and loved it!! I went to see it because my favorite British actor at the time, Ian Richardson was in it. I’ve seen it several times since on video tape and DVD. Each time I see things I missed in previous viewings.

    Dark City is mysterious and creepy but best of all it doesn’t disappoint at the end of the film!!

  4. Absolutely loved this movie! So much so that I read the novelization by Frank Lauria hoping it would delve even deeper into it’s secrets. I don’t recall the book shedding any light or adding anything to the movie.
