B MOVIES POWER
30 May 2004 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

Bloodmoon is not a complete waste of time especially if you are like me into B action movies.

The fight scenes are not bad at all with a competent choreography and decent performers.

There are also some very amusing things in campy style like trying to accept Gary Daniels as a profiler chasing serial killers. I mean the guy is some pretty boy with lousy acting skills but its pretty funny to watch him trying to do some Clarice Starling's kind of speeches in some scenes.

His partner is some black dude that looks just like Eddie Murphy. And I kid you not. Even his voice sounds like Eddie. If only he had some of Eddie's talent!

The villain is a pretty good fighter and has a cool whacko look that suits the role.

Also something extra is Rob Van Dam's appearance in which he fights the bad guy. Pretty cool to see Rob.

On the bad side there's an awful stupid ending with a disappointing final fight and of course a weak story filled with clichés. Also no nudity! Too bad.

Still there's plenty of action, an Eddie Murphy clone and some awful acting with even worse dialogs that will make you laugh over and over again.

Not bad to get your male friends together (if you have any) with a lot of beer and a pizza. Party on!.
