Critic Reviews of "Darkman"TIME MagazineMarch 28, 2010
Raimi isn't effective with his actors, and the dialogue lacks smart menace, but his canny visual sense carries many a scene.VarietyJune 04, 2007
Despite occasional silliness, Sam Raimi's Darkman has more wit, pathos and visual flamboyance than is usual in contemporary shockers.Chicago ReaderJune 04, 2007
Raimi's flair for jazzy visual effects and extravagant action sequences, combined with direction that's full of punch and energy, makes this the best pop roller-coaster ride around.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Wild, woolly and occasionally wondrous.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Darkman sustains mild interest throughout, but it never takes off, partly because a real-estate scam, gangland shootouts, city corruption and a love story clutter up the sad story of Westlake's strange mutation.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Raimi's live-action comic book aims to deliver scares spiked with laughs. That it does.Daily DeadJanuary 08, 2016
Darkman still remains one of Sam Raimi's most ambitious projects to date and it's hard to do anything but admire the kind of lofty ambitions Raimi tosses at the screen with his self-created superhero crime thriller/dark comedy mash-up.FilmLand EmpireJune 22, 2015
...comicbook slapstick and off-the-hook mania in a combination only previously seen in Evil Dead II.Film Freak CentralMay 01, 2014
Raimi, in 1990, made the best comic-book movie there ever was...Cinema CrazedMarch 13, 2014
It's a fun, gruesome, and original revenge picture for horror and pulp fans alike...Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)February 25, 2014
As with most of Raimi's early work, the second-hand premise is an excuse for the director's movie-mad visual invention.The DissolveFebruary 20, 2014
Darkman is funny, but it's no joke; it's the work of a man who underlines the conventions of adventure stories and horror because he enjoys them, and knows that even when rendered tongue-in-cheek, they're timeless.
