Storyline

Darkman, needing money to continue his experiments on synthetic skin, steals a crate of cash from drug lord Peter Rooker, attracting the gangster's attention. Rooker is determined to find the source of Darkman's super strength, and uses his beautiful but evil doctor to lure Darkman into a trap. Thinking that the doctor will restore feeling to his tortured body, he discovers too late that they have taken a sample of his adrenaline, which they will market as a super steroid. As Darkman plans his revenge on Rooker's gang, he slowly begins to care about Rooker's neglected wife and daughter. He must now find a way to help them, and destroy Rooker before he uses the adrenaline to plunge the city into chaos. Written by Jordan Williams

Goofs

Dr. Thorne is (or at least claims to be) one of the doctors who cut off Peyton's pain receptors, leading to his enhanced strength. Yet, despite familiarity with this technique and its side effects (familiar enough to reverse it), she cannot duplicate the altered adrenaline in Rooker's thugs simply by performing the procedure on them (or at least some poor sap they don't have to hunt down first).

Quotes

[Nico finds a discrepancy in the drug supply]
Nico: Ah, Peter. The light should have turned this as blue as a bruise. Shit's been cut.
Peter Rooker: [to Johnny] Are you shorting me?
Johnny Lee: Fuck. It ain't happening on my end.
Peter Rooker: Of course it's not. How long have we been doing business? Four, five years?
Johnny Lee: At least four.
Peter Rooker: We've had drinks together, swapped dirty jokes.
[one of Rooker's men shoots and kills two of Johnny's bodyguards]
Peter Rooker: Did you really think you could cheat me, Johnny?
Johnny Lee: Like the tast of that, Rooker? I pissed in it.

Not as good as the first, but better than the second
12 June 2002 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

The first Darkman movie was awesome. The 2nd was stupid. Durant comes back from the dead to torment Darkman once more, please. If you're in the kind of chopper crash he was in, you're dead and you stay dead.

This sequel however was pretty good. Darkman is tricked by a doctor into allowing a procedure to reconnect his nervous system, but instead it's connected to some kind of electric shock device. She uses it on him if he doesn't obey her.

Darkman's skin formula and diskette the forumula's on are stolen by the doctor's boyfriend Rooker. Darkman has to try to get them back, but while he's doing this, ends up falling in love with Rooker's emotionally battered wife and child.

The movie would've been better if it wasn't done on a shoe string budget with lowgrade special effects (like garbage cans sailing into the air when they explode, please). But it's still a step up from the 2nd movie.
