Welcome to another installment of Cinema Sound Off!
Here’s the little summary from IMBD:
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
Okay, first off, there is a lot of blood–and I mean a lot–in this movie. I’m all for a great vampire flick, any day. But jeepers, this one was really full of blood. Gross sounds, too. Yikes.
BUT, having said that, I really liked this story. Mostly the STORY, though. The acting…not so much. Felt a bit campy when it came to Wilem Dafoe’s character. And what was up with Ethan Hawke’s raspy voice? Sounded cartoonish to me.
The whole idea of a world of vampires and them running out of blood because the humans are dying out–heck yeah. Loved that storyline. And I liked Ethan’s character. The movie showed his struggles with being a vampire very well. Liked the depth there.
So, if you can stomach the gallons of red stuff spilled in this very violent movie, you might want to venture out to Blockbuster and rent it.
I’m giving it 3 tickets.
