User Score: 67/100


A man struggles with memories of his past, including a wife he cannot remember, in a nightmarish world with no sun and run by beings with telekinetic powers who seek the souls of humans.

From the writer and director of "The Crow," Dark City is about a man who wakes up in a hotel with amnesia. Little by little he realizes that this is a make believe world created by aliens in order to find out what constitutes the human soul. This knowledge that they are collecting will hopefully save the aliens’ existence. This movie is very similar to "The Matrix" in many ways.
