|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Scientist hot on the trail of a formula for cloning body parts by computer is savagely attacked (and left for dead) by thugs who represent a crooked city developer. Retreating into a shadow world, and seeking revenge, the laboratory genius reinvents himself as Darkman. Grandiose melodramatics, and Raimi's over-the-top approach, are entertaining to a point, but there's a fundamental hollowness to this comic-book script. Old-fashioned laboratory montage and main titles by Pablo Ferro. Jenny Agutter and John Landis appear unbilled. Followed by two video sequels in 1995 and 1996.
