Adaptation of Min-Woo Hyung’s vampire action/horror series in N. American theaters
I’m actually going to see this tonight for a friends Birthday. I will let you know how much it sucks.
Actually, it wasn’t too bad. It certainly wasn’t great, but it was much better than I expected. It actually turned out pretty enjoyable, despite some flaws. The style was interesting. The performances were all solid, and the effects were pretty good despite the fairly modest budget (by Hollywood standards.) It sort of reminded me of a mix of the Riddick movies and Underworld.
The friend I went with really enjoyed, as did most of the people in the theater. It was a bit shallow, particularly given its relatively short run time, but it was fun. That’s really the best you can expect from a summer movie.
Saw this last night and I actually have to agree with a lot of what cody said, especially the mid of Riddick and Underworld movies part.
It seemed like they put more effort into the fight scenes (which I thoroughly enjoyed) than they did the rest of the movie, for reason that are easy to understand, but it was almost to the point of where it was too easy to see.
Aside from that, it was a very enjoyable movie and glad I saw it.
I saw this and thought it was pretty good. A bit short for my taste, at least it seemed to be over rather quickly.
Didn’t really care for Karl Urban as Black Hat. I don’t think they developed his character much, and they should have.
