|Didn't Deliver - 3/5|
The special effects meant that the film was visually appealing, especially to fans of gore and blood. The violent scenes of vampires feasting on bodies did not make you realise you were watching a film. They were done effectively and certainly will appeal to fans of the genre. As far as acting goes, well it won't be remembered as the best film any of the leading talent has appeared in. I recorded this film because of the presence of Ethan Hawke who remains one of my favourite actors. He is so good at playing gritty, emotional characters, in particular those he played in 'Training Day' and 'Staten Island'. This role however did not suit him. He simply shouldn't do films like this.
As is the case with many films nowadays, the trailer got me very excited about the film but the film itself failed to deliver. Of course this is because they pack the best clips into a 30 second slot so it seems fantastic and of course this can't be replicated for an hour and a half but I still felt disappointed. It was good, don't get me wrong, but again I felt it was a movie that didn't deliver as much as it could have.
