Two-time Academy Award nominee® Ethan Hawke plays Edward Dalton, a researcher in the year 2019, in which an unknown plague has transformed the world's population into blood-thirsty vampires. As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human, or find a blood substitute before time runs out. However, a covert group of vampires makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race.
This is surprisingly good given the small budget. Pretty gorey though so be prepared.
Gore GOOD Movie Baaaaaad
Like their first movie, an Australian Zombie movie, these guys make their American debut on a small budget and it shows. The money was spent on the gore, which is good, on the actors, which are okay and not on the script. It goes from interesting to painful to watch, where you are just waiting for the next Vampire to be blown up, or the next human to be torn apart. Blade 2 this ain't.
Watchable But average
I've certainly seen worse vampire movies.
This one is distinctly middle of the pack... But still holds enough interest to be watchable. I certainly wasn't reaching for the fast-forward.
The ending was a little too convenient, to be honest, and this detracted rather a lot from the film altogether - but overall I felt this film was passable.
