Dark City

Dark City

Rating: 4/5

Premise:

From IMDB:
A man struggles with memories of his past, including a wife he cannot remember, in a nightmarish world with no sun.

Review:

This was a cool one. The narrative unveiled in such an interesting way. This normal guy wakes up in a tub, obviously has trouble remembering where he is or even who he is.

From then on, there was intrigue, suspense, tension and freaky aliens who could change your memories, amongst other very nifty things.

Granted, some things were a bit too much, like Kiefer Sunderland’s character, who seemed to be an odd mix of Dr Frankenstein and Quasimodo and always short of breath, as well as the oversimplified process of handling memories but, overall, a cool sci-fi flick.

I was sad about the ending, though. I had hoped for more resolution.
I cannot imagine anyone remaining sane, living like that, growing old in that rock. I had really hoped they’d make it home. I am pretty sure the Doctor mentioned Earth in the beginning of the movie so he should know of it, right?
