One of the most innovative movies I have seen. The story was quite refreshing in its originality. The cinematography was dark yet the images were an important part of the storyline.

This is a great Scifi flick that came out before the Matrix and was overshadowed by it.
It has a retro look like Gattica (another great flim) along with a noir 50s look.
Check it out for Kiefer Sutherland who steals the show as a mousy doctor with a dark side.

WARNING: Blu-ray is defective
Elvis GaGa | Houston, TX United States | 08/13/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Blu-ray version only: Proceed with great caution when ordering this disc. When played back through a stereo receiver or TV there is much static/distortion of the audio track. I tried two different discs with the same result. Had to return them both. Fortunately Amazon's customer service is excellent. There are numerous similar comments from other customers here, wish I would have read them before I ordered the movie. It's possible that when played back through a new receiver with the proper decoding that the distortion goes away, but when played through a stereo receiver or TV it's unbearable. I have purchased many, many blu-ray discs and this is the first and only time I have experienced this issue."
Concur with reported audio issues

"I finally upgraded to an HDTV and Blu Ray player, and "Dark City" was the first disc I put in to test my new system. That was an unfortunate choice, because the audio static drove me crazy trying to figure out what I had set up incorrectly. Now that I've read other reviews here (and verified that my other Blu Rays sound terrific), I realize the problem is the "Dark City" disc. While I'm obviously relieved the problem is not my new TV or player, I'm disappointed I won't have an enjoyable Blu Ray experience with this film (apparently until I upgrade from simple stereo to full surround sound). I've seen "Dark City" in the theaters and on regular DVD, so I didn't hesitate to buy it again on Blu Ray. It's a beautiful, 5-star film, but be leery of this Blu Ray audio experience."
