Darkman, formerly scientists Peyton Westlake, still lives in isolation in the big city. His world, however, is turned upside down when he discovers the gangland boss who blew up his lab and destroyed his life is still alive. Before long, said villain has employed the help of a half-crazed scientist to help him build powerful weapons to control the city. Darkman's only hope is in the use of his synthetic skin creating machinery, sets out to stop the maniacs.
Though never equalling Liam Neeson, Arnold Vosloo is great as Darkman. There are plenty of other good performances as well. The almost-as-monstrous-as-Darkman villain Durant is still an imposing presence, the crazy old genius scientist is good and the film succeeds in re-capturing the spirit of the original very well.
