|Scientist Peyton Westlake continues to
work on his synthetic skin, whilst fighting crime as Darkman.
Trying to perfect his synthetic skin with the assistance of Dr David Brinkman (Jesse Collins), Durant turns up, and in a scene reminiscent of the first movie, Brinkman is tortured and killed, leaving the work in ruins. It is upto Darkman once again to disguise himself as members of Durant's gang and manages to destroy them from within.
Whilst Westlake is infiltrating Durant's gang - reporter Jill Randall is trying to prove that Peyton Westlake is still alive.
|The feeling of deja vue in this movie is
quite strong, a lot of the scenes remind you of the first movie, and
indeed a lot of clips from the first one are also included.
It seems from this movie that the producers wanted to try and establish a franchise for the character. This is also backed up by the fact that a new comic book and novel series were also released around this time. But with the fact that this movie was released direct to video, and the fact that the story borrow heavily from the first movie, it was unlikely that the movie series would continue... but it did.
It was originally intended that Die Darkman Die was going to be the sequel to the original movie, but when Larry Drake became available to reprise his role of Durant, this movie was fast tracked into development.
