As a fan of fantasy and horror movies (particularly vampires) you'd think this movie was made for me. Unfortunately though, it's just not pulled off all that well. The story itself is interesting, if... Read more the dialogue is a little clunky at times. Of course it didn't help that many of the actors were obviously just there for the paycheck and had no idea how to act in a fantasy movie i.e. just like in any other movie, don't overact. Michael Madsen in particular who I've been a fan of, really just phoned in his lines and didn't seem like he wanted to be there.
The main problem with the movie though, was the direction, which was clumsy at best and somewhat reminiscent in style to Uwe Bol's last clunker, 'House of the dead'.
On the positive side, Kristanna Loken did a fine job taking on this character. Not only was her acting top class, she also looks great, which doesn't hurt. Also the sets were well done, there certainly seems to have been some money spent on the film.
So, if you're a genre fan like me and are willing to look past these many imperfections you'll come away thinking you didn't entirely waste your time. And if your not, well, it's not very long so at least it'll be over quickly. 3/5
Violent. The only interest is Udo Kier. Violent. The only interest is Udo Kier.
liked the movie. Good acting, just no good for all the blood stuff, not real good
Would get it again
The story was good. Some of the thinking of the actors in the story were, stupid and unbelievable. But OK all the same.
I feel sorry for one of the associate producers. He must have had a rough... Read more upbringing as his name was Max Wanko. Straightup.
As a die hard vampire fan i really enjoyed this movie
Great story but so many pridictable fight scenes and whole thing could have been done so much better. Dont waste your time.
Another Uwe Boll spectacular. A laugh to watch because there is so much wrong with it. Watching Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen, Michelle Rodriguez and Billy Zane completely phone in their performances... Read more was something to behold, especially Michael Madsen - it's plain to see that he doesn't care at all.
The dialogue is rubbish, the plot is just like a video game.
This guy is a modern day Ed Wood.
Okay I have absolutely nothing good to say about this movie. It's a bomb ... a TOTAL bomb ! This is a movie that you'll watch and think " What the hell were they thinking ?! " Weak script, weak acting... Read more and even weaker storyline. This is the type of movie that could potentially ruin an actors career. Rent it at your own risk.
The action scenes were wooden and the plot was predictable.
Sorry but this female version of Blade simply does not work. Kristina Loken better known for her turn in T3 as the female terminator (a role she was very good at) struggles to come to grips with acting... Read more with feeling - I guess its much easier to play a machine than a "real" person - hell it made Arnold a star. With a suprisingly good cast including Michael Masden (Species, Reseviour Dogs), Michelle Rodriguez (Catfight, Resident Evil and TV's Lost), Billy Zane (Titanic, Memphis Bell, Dead Calm) and even Ben KIngsley (Ghandi, Sneakers, Schindlers List). Unfortunately a good cast can never make up for a terrible script o poor direction. 40 minutes into this shocker I switched off and moved to something more paletable. For die hard vampire lovers only.
