Hysterical, lots of memorable one liners

Hysterical, lots of memorable one liners! This movie is fantastic, I do not get the bad reviews. Well unless it was by people that do not understand clever humor, hysterical one liners and a fantastically silly plot. If you are looking for a uplifting, super fun Sunday afternoon then check this movie out, it is just simply a great time.

The one liners really make the movie and Brad Dourif and Christopher Lambert are great as always. I really do not know what else to say, this movie is great, if you like purposely silly, fun movies then you will love this one. Give it a shot, you will have a great time.

Wow they like a long review for movies here, most people just want a quick summary of how the movie was without someone giving away the plot too much and ruining the movie. That is why I never listen to movie critic reviews, they not only give a pretentious review but they give away too much in the movie and ruin it.

Enough Fun to Warrent a Sequel

Some of my guiltiest pleasures come in the form of horror comedies from the 1980's. Waxwork, Dead Heat, House, are just three of the many titles that I would step on and over young children just to get in front of the screen to which they were projecting. Generally, the films are not very good. But they had a playfulness to them and I will give the benefit of the doubt to the producers that they knew exactly what they intending and to what audience it was intended.

The new millennium has tried to produce some of the magic of the horror/comedy peers of yesteryear, but have been largely unsuccessful. With exceptions handed out to a small few (including the best example of late: Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) the studios try too hard to mix the different genres without just letting it flow and develop into what it might become.

The latest horror/comedy to cross our desk was Blood Shot – a film that has brought 80's horror actors Brad Dourif, Lance Henriksen and Christopher Lambert together (even if none of the three share a scene). Blood Spot is a typical buddy cop film that is not your typical buddy cop film. Brennan Elliott plays Rip, a rogue cop who fights both terrorists and vampires. Bailey Smith plays a vampire – a vampire that works for the CIA (Vampire Division) under the direction of Sam (Henricksen). Rip and the Vampire are constantly at odds with each other with Rip trying everything from garlic to holy water to bring down the undead bloodsucker. But both are crusaders for good. And both find themselves having to team together to fight an evil Middle Eastern terrorist (Dourif) who is planning a nuclear attack on U.S. soil. That's the story. Long and short.

Blood Shot is based on the short film of the same name by writer/director Dietrich Johnston. Johnston gets a bigger budget (estimated at $3.5 million) for this full length feature and does the best with opportunity spinning an enjoyable tale that has a handful of good one-liners and a whole lot of fun as the story plays out.

The film never takes itself too seriously and comes very close at times to resembling a deleted scene from The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! But it manages to consistently pull itself back in from the brink of absurdity to get back to what it does best – entertain.

The story in itself is not ground breaking and painting white actors brown to look like Middle Eastern terrorists will either be offensive or hilarious depending on one's sense of humor. But the action and the relationship between the two reluctant partners is enough to keep this film afloat and amass enough appreciation to present a recommendation.

More interestingly still is where the premise can go from here. The idea of a vigilante vampire has been done before with Blade, but Blood Shot doesn't attempt for spectacular stunts and action sequences. It instead spends time on character and that makes the idea of continuing the series an interesting premise we would like to see exploited.

Could had been good, but was a mess.

When i first saw the cover, or the french title in the video store(yes some people still rent from video stores) "Vampire Assassin" i knew i was in for something pretty lame and dumb. Oh well i have not rent one of those in ages, and i had a coupon for 2 at the price of 1...

The movie start right away and this is my major complain, its never explained why the cop is after the vampire. We are supposed to believe the cop only want to bring the vampire to justice because he kill people... which is extremely lame. Eventually they will have to team up as the synopsis mention to take down a terrorist who want to blow out a Nuke in L.A. OK this part is from the start extremely hard to believe, terrorist running freely in the US in full "arabian look" and all. But on top of that the leader is so caricatured you can't take him seriously at all.

When it comes to other characters, the vampire is OK, he is imposing, look strong, outside the fact that he only use double pistol, you could think he is what you have in mind when you think "vampire". The cop ain't bad, but his character is so badly introduced you have trouble caring for him.

But the bad guys are just a total mess, they can't be believe in at all, and the whole concept of the president talking from his limo to a vampire division administrator is so whatever.

After that, i would say the way the movie is filmed is pretty decent, camera work is fine, blood is fine, but i am not sure if this is part of the vampire "powers" but when he sponge bullets, they just disappear in a little smoke explosion, not even damaging his suit, which i tough was extremely silly and just poor special effects.

In the end i would say the movie is hard to like, even if you see it as a total "nanar" as we call them in french, which could be translated to "a silly but fun movie" in English. The pacing ain't very good, the story is, even tough not really complicated" hard to follow because its simply badly written, and the characters outside the vampire himself, seem way too caricatured and dumb.

In the end really not a must, whatever you are a fan of vampire movies or action movies. And i saw it witch a bunch of beers... so i gave him a big chance.
