It actually has less features than the individual DVDs of the films. The first disc contains Darkman and Darkman II, as well as the trailers for each. The filmographies and production notes from the earlier releases are missing. The second disc has Darkman III on it, but inexplicably has no features at all--no scene selection, languages, not even a menu! If not for the fact that I bought this new, I'd probably suspect that it was a bootleg.
The quality of the picture is good but not great on all three movies.
In all honesty, it's an affront to fans that, when a franchise collection was finally released, it is actually worth less than the individual releases. The only reason this gets 3 stars is on the strength of the first film, and the passable quality of the second and third. If you absolutely can't find the separate DVDs, you might get this (if only to save space and/or money). But any Darkman diehard will want to stick with their old copies until something better comes along.
What are these movies about, you may ask? Well the movie's main character is a scientist by the name of Peyton Westlake (Liam Neeson in the first, Arnold Vosloo in the sequels) who is working on a revolutionary severe burn related project. Specifically, synthetic skin that completely covers up any burn wound and remains on the person like it's real skin to the point no one can tell the difference.
In the first movie, his girlfriend is a reporter who unfortunately gets on the bad side of a local mob boss, Robert Durant. Durant tracks down a piece of paper he wants to Westlake's lab where the girlfriend forgot it. Durant ultimately has the lab blown up and (thinking) Westlake killed. In reality, the blast blew him from his lab and only severely burned him over most his body.
Westlake is able to break free from his hospital--where his nerves were removed leaving his brain to feed off adrenaline and his body to increase his strength and unfortunately more or less uncontrollable rage--and re-establish his lab to continue his work.
Westlake takes it upon himself to take down Durant in the first two and a businessman who is secretly a drug dealing mob boss.
To do this, Westlake, as his new identity Darkman, can literally look and sound like anyone thanks to his skin project and ability to alter his voice.Read more ›
