Refreshing And Rewarding
24 September 2004 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

I love good, idea-driven sci-fi. Where there's actually a fresh concept. Not just another alien or killer android story. Darklight has an interesting hook, a she-devil who comes from the garden of eden and needs to reform herself to become a champion for man and woman kind. This movie asks for a little patience. I don't recommend it for people with A.D.D. But I believe the audience's investment is rewarded, as mine was. There's a lot going on. The story is filled with concepts, many we've seen, but they're presented in a refreshing way: a secret religious group, a mystical energy force, genetic experiments, a biblical plague, ancient curses, and more. I appreciate that the movie-makers took a novelistic approach to a TV movie. It's certainly dense. But that's a good thing IMO. I found myself discovering things on my own and not being force-fed a simplistic idea. The nicest part for me was the partnership between Lillith and William, Richard B's character. It was pretty evenly matched. I cared as much for him as I did for her and when he was struck with the plague, I wanted to see him pull through. I like David Hewlett on SGA and always liked John Delancy. Darklight was like a puzzle, when the pieces came together, it was more than the sum of its parts.
