Dark City is unabashed in its eccentricities and relishes the hypnotic, mystifying world it creates.

Drew Dietsch, Giant Freakin Robot

A visionary slice of visceral experience.

Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com

Dark City trades in such weighty themes as memory, thought control, human will and the altering of reality, but is engaging mostly in the degree to which it creates and sustains a visually startling alternate universe.
