Format: DVD
I can remember a defining moment for me in this film when, only a few minutes in, the titular character looks out her car window and sees a CGI unicorn made of clouds running alongside her. I immediately reached for my gun, but a compassionate friend stopped me, ensuring me that this couldn't possibly be the two hour long Guess Jeans commercial it was setting itself up to be.

My friend was damn wrong.

S. Darko is a sequel, like Troll 2 or the Second World War. The direction is hopelessly one-note and plagiaristic, the dialogue is reminiscent of a TV spot for Calvin Klein cologne, and the story is less a sequel, and more an accidental anthology of mini sequels, each sucking a little harder than the last.

Remember the pensive sequences in Donnie Darko where they'd show a time lapse of cloud cover, or morose suburbanites living out their lives to a somber soundtrack? Well, this movie does, and is considerate enough to include 50 or 60 shot-for-shot reproductions of those scenes for those who might've forgotten. With the bulk of the movie thus out of the way, the remaining running time is filled with multiple time travels that are impossible to care about, because they're established, abandoned, and picked up again like a relay baton in the Special Olympics.

Also, the principle relationship between Sam and her idiot friend is painfully bad. You know the one: lifelong friends who have been forged in the crucible of adolescence to become blood sisters. A bond so close that they can only communicate their intimate connection through the following dialogue:

Girl 1: "We're perfect together."
Girl 2: "Immaculate."

I am not making that up. That back and forth happens at least three times.

1. I think the idea of telling the story from the point of view of the Manipulated Dead instead of the Living Reciever was great. 2. I think the idea of continuing the story using Samantha Darko was great. 3. I believe Iraq Jack was a brilliant character.

These great ideas, unfortunately were poorly executed. Here's why I think this way:

1. As I have watched Donnie Darko, I have certainly wondered what it was like for Frank the Bunny. He was the second most important character in Donnie Darko but we know virtally nothing about him. So I could certainly understand why someone would want to write a movie from this perspective. I think the reason it was so poorly done in the movie is because the idea that Samantha Darko would be the Manipulated Dead is just downright stupid and illogical. The Manipulated Dead should have been a completely different character.

2. Continuing the tale from Samantha Darko's perspective is brillant. Why? Because she would have found the book The Philosophy of Time Travel. She would have been motivated to find out why her brother had this book and what the book meant. She could have tracked down someone who knew Roberta Sparrow, leading her to Iraq Jack. Then Fisher (the director)could have explored Roberta's back story like he said he considered doing in the special features on the DVD. Perhaps Corey could have still been a part of it. A friend occupying her on her journey trying to run from her past, while Samantha was trying to find information so she could understand hers.

3. And while these two young women are trying to deal with their past, Samantha meets Iraq Jack (and some of the towns characters. A few of them were nothing but filler in this movie.).

I think that if you truly loved Donnie Darko (Director's Cut) then you will find some redeeming quality in this movie - hence my two stars. If you only liked DD or hated DD then you will projectile vomit all across your TV screen while watching this abortion of a movie. The writer and director DESTROYED the entire DD concept with this thing. They left GAPING plot holes - completely unexplainable pieces of BS - throughout the movie. The acting is terrible. The CGI barely passable.

Do yourself a favour: go online and read the storyline line complete with spoilers. You will be satisfied with that. Save your $.

If you are a DD cult film fan: It is nice to be able to return to the world and imagine it all being a better story than you are watching. Plus Sam Darko is a real cutey.

On my first viewing of this film I hated it but for some reason it kept creeping back into my head so I revisited the film again and realized that I just didn't understand it. The film extras help the film non experts like me but it really stayed with me and I started to think about it in a seriously different way and now I love it! I think about it so often its scary. It really is not a film for the " I just want it to entertain me" crowd. You need to watch and think with this and it will have a different meaning to many. The final kicker is that it has a killer soundtrack! The last song on the film is "The Carnival Is Over" by Dead Can't Dance and its a great song to end with being the most haunting beautiful song written. This is definately not a film for the masses but I am glad that it was able to be done by us few who appreciate such obscure film making and its meanings.
