Movie Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert A great visionary achievement, a film so original and exciting, it stirred my imagination like "Metropolis" and "2001: A Space Odyssey."
Washington Post - 10/10 by Stephen Hunter If you don't fall in love with it, you've probably never fallen in love with a movie, and never will.
Time - 10/10 by Richard Corliss It is as cool and distant as the planet the Strangers come from. But, Lord, is Dark City a wonder to see. [2 March 1998]
Cinema Crazed - 10/10 by Felix Vasquez Jr. Was "The Matrix" before "The Matrix" was ever in the pop culture lexicon...
Houston Community Newspapers - 9/10 by Gary Brown Dark City is a truly scary flick.
ReelViews - 9/10 by James Berardinelli Dark City has as stunning a visual texture as that of any movie that I've seen...Visually, this film isn't just impressive, it's a tour de force.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Rita Kempley Obliged to go from lost soul to demigod, Sewell's performance is as fascinating as Proyas's mystical vision.
New Times (L.A.) - 9/10 by Andy Klein Full of provocative concepts, but, like most films that attack such metaphysical concerns head-on, things have become a tad too jumbled by the end to be altogether satisfying. It's a problem built into the subject matter...This all said, Dark City is immensely entertaining, as well as visually dazzling.
Filmcritic.com - 9/10 by Jesse Hassenger mixes visual marvels with B-movie archetypes
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by David Sterritt The story is dark and often violent, but it's told with a remarkable sense of visual energy and imagination.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Michael Wilmington Proyas' movie lacks a truly rich or compelling story -- although the city secret is certainly a rich and compelling idea. All too often, Dark City seems a great production design in search of a movie, an ultimate modern film noir pastiche, in which the images are so strong they overpower the drama. [27 Feb 1998]
Patheos - 8/10 by Peter T. Chattaway Dark City, based on a story he wrote, Proyas ups the style quotient and shoots for something more significant, plugging into current debates on the nature of the mind and soul.
