Created by Sam Rami because he couldnt' secure the rights to THE SHADOW. Fun movie, still good to watch. The two direct to video sequels were okay and helped start a couple of careers. The two sequels are on Netflix streaming.

I saw it in the theater. It was cheesy but fun. I think Liam Neeson was still perfecting his American accent. A lot of the movie's elements I would write off as very mediocre but there is some sense of fun and visual style that makes me like it. The two sequels were much more mediocre and didn't do much for me (although I did by the trilogy DVD set when it was at Walmart for $10). I remember seeing a preview of the Marvel Comics "sequel" where for example the crime boss who gets his fingers cut off at the beginning of the movie comes back with robotic hands. I didn't see the rest of the story. "Darkman Vs. Army of Darkness" from Dynamite Comics a few years back wasn't that amazing either but it was a diverting trifle.
