So Darkman 3: Die Darkman Die isn’t all that great. That’s kind of the trouble that direct to video movies that were filmed back to back dealt with back in the 90s. There’s usually one that’s at least okay and then the other one is kinda okay at best. This suffers from just kind of being boring with mostly uninteresting things happening. They also kinda just forgot about what makes Darkman Darkman. The only thing that I remembered about the movie was Darkman giving the skin to the little girl but couldn’t remember what specifically caused it. It was directed by the same person as the previous movie, which is another thing that happens when movies are shot back to back. It was written by Michael Colleart and Mike Werb, who wrote a wide variety of movies together.
The plot centers on Peter Rooker, the newest crime boss to take on Darkman. He is infatuated with physical strength and especially that physical strength that Darkman possesses. There’s also a doctor that was one of the doctors that worked on Darkman when he was originally found after his attack. There’s a bit more to the plot, but I don’t really feel like getting anymore into the plot. The only thing that I remembered was what I had previously mentioned.
Darkman 3 stars Jeff Fahey, Arnold Vosloo, Darlanne Fluegel, Roxann Dawson, and Nigel Bennett. Jeff Fahey is top billed in the movie, which I guess was a way of using their big name actor to help to get the movie seen. I thought it was weird rewatching it and one of the first things that I see is the name of an actor that wasn’t in either of the previous movies. I wondered why Nigel Bennett looked so familiar to me, it was because he was in Forever Knight.
I really want to just talk about the stunts. There are a lot of explosions in this movie and they look really good. I do want to point out the big explosion, or well explosions, at the end of the movie. Its really big and boy howdy does it look crazy. I spotted the stunt people that were there were caught on fire during it.
I don’t really think many people will watch this unless they want to finish the trilogy. It’s an okay movie and definitely the least of the trilogy. Unless you have it physically you’ll have to rent or buy it through your preferred digital storefront.
