kNobbY (7 out of 10 ) A very strange but enjoyable movie! If you need everything to happen straight away this probably isn't the movie for you, it takes a while to get going.
Mark (8 out of 10 ) Strange yes, but very well done. Very dark as the title suggests. It does take a while to really get into it. Once you get what is going on it is a most enjoyable film. I have seen it 3 times and every time I watch it I see something that I missed last time.
Grace (10 out of 10 ) The movie is perfect. This script is bizarre and very gory. I definitely prefer the movie - that's what the rating's for.
harry georgatos (7 out of 10 ) If the word "surrealism"can be applied it is to this film. This is an extremely mindbending premise that has striking film noir cinematography and set design within the sci-fi genre. For me this is Alex Proyas most successful film. More successful than "I, ROBOT", probably because it is a more personal film for the director. The subtext to the film can come straight out the paranoid sci-fi films of the 50's, with the threat of imminent communist brainwashing and mind control. It is a pity this director hasn't made more films.
Jon Kapp (8 out of 10 ) This film has a very different and unique style of cinematography, editing, and fast pacing of scenes, and the soundtrack music plays pretty much non-stop through the movie. This movie actually feels like it is a comic book on screen - a dark comic book, but one just the same. None of these comments are to detract from this film, it is a very unique and different type of movie, like some kind of odd dream. An interesting and unique sci fi motion picture.
magoo (10 out of 10 ) I've never seen such a multi-layered and profound movie like Dark City. I think Alex Proyas created a masterwork that is so strange but beautiful. This movie has revolutionized storytelling for me.
mike (8 out of 10 ) This is different than how I remember the movie. I suppose the script was severely rewritten for the movie. I like the movie better, to be honest. The ending is the total opposite of this ending.
