Brief Synopsis – A female vampire warrior must save a “special human” who is targeted by their Werewolf enemies
My Take on it – I can’t really explain why I have pyrposely avoided this movie over teh last decade.
Perhaps it’s because I view the theme to be closer to the horror genre than the action thriller one, or perhaps it just seemed too dark for me.
Regardless, based on a recommendation from Kim at Tranquil Dreams, I decided to check it out and found the movie to be quite fun. It isn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen about vampires or werewolves, but it also wasn’t the worst because it actually has a competent storyline.
The thing with this movie is that it grows on you. I saw it two days ago and the more I think about it, the more I like a lot of the ideas and themes. (Guess it’s good I had the weekend to think about it) 🙂
The best part of this movie tho is Kate Beckinsale who I have always enjoyed no matter what movie I’ve seen here in.
It’s actually quite interesting that she met her future husband (the director Len Wiseman) while making this film.
I am definitely intrigued to see where the sequels go from here and expect to see them in the near future.
Bottom Line – Fun Vampire action movie that creates an interesting war between them and the rival werewolves. Interested in seeing where they go with this idea in later movies. Kate Beckinsale in great here (as she usually is) 🙂 . Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
