Watching Dark City makes you think you’re watching a mixture of The Matrix and Sin City. While Dark City might not have the finishing touch which is present in both mentioned movies, it does have respectively the “wat-if-the-world-is-not-what-we-think-it-is” story line and the comic scenery.
And what is even more exciting: Dark City was the first to be in the cinema. This makes The Matrix and Sin City look like Dark City instead of the other way around.
For its originality I give Dark City an 8.
