I've been an avid Vampirella fan since she first appeared in comics, so when I saw the video, I wondered why I had never heard of it before or saw it on DVD. I finally knew why: the movie is a totally disappointing experience. The costume of the main character isn't nearly close to the original (as portrayed in the comic books), and Talisa Soto (no matter how truly beautiful she is) is not the most appropriate leading lady for this particular role. From the look of the comics, we can figure out that Vampirella is a mixture of Slavic and middle east ethnic features (not a bad thing for any girl, because it's truly exotic in nature), and Soto is a Latin beauty. Not quite a match in casting, at all. For those viewers who aren't familiar with the characters from the comics, the movie is boring and slow paced, with loose references to the comic and really cheap costumes (the experience is even worst for those who knew the characters before hand). Also the visual effects are quite poor, to say the least. However, Joel Goldsmith's score is excellent, and it's really about the only production value on the film. I'll give this movie a 5, just on the basis of the music track alone, and I wouldn't mind at all to have it on CD, because it's truly enjoyable.
