Review – Darkman 2: The Return of Durant

Durant (Larry Drake) may be back, but he’s about it. The switch from Liam Neeson to Arnold Vosloo is fairly indicative of the change in the whole thing: the first had class and originality, while the second one is reasonably well crafted but uninspiring. Once again our hero battles crime while he searches for the formula for non-light-sensitive artificial flesh so he can have a face for more than 99 minutes at a time. There’s some mish-mash in here about energy weapons, and a new scientist gets stirred in so Durant will have someone new to kill. But beyond that this is strictly leftovers. Mildly amusing
