Synopsis : Blood Shot is a quirky Action / Horror / Comedy about a
who works for the United States Government; CIA: Vampire Division. A
Cop pursues, determined to rid the world of this evil blood sucker.
When the Vampire is sent on a mission to annihilate a terrorist cell in Los Angeles, he must convince the Cop to join him in the fight against the greater evil; a warehouse full of terrorist scum.
Overview : A mixture of styles from BLADE to INNOCENT BLOOD with a little bit of American Pride thrown in. *Atmosphere - The setup for this movie got the point across : a cop versus the bad guys. A chain smoking detective debriefing an agent will let you know not to mess with these guys. You think they are all very serious until one attempts the name of the terrorist. 2 minutes later he is done
*Pace - A bit jumpy at the very beginning. I felt I was watching a trailer for the first few minutes then it finally kicks in with a smooth story. Definitely a movie for those that enjoy an action packed horror movie.
*Cast/Characters - Was nice to see actors with talent and that didn't have any difficulty in front of the camera. Michael Bailey Smith did a remarkable job as the vampire, I definitely wouldn't want to run into HIM in a dark alleyway! *F/X - A few impressive explosions and bad guys flying through the air, blood being splashed on the walls and the cop and vampire dueling it out.
Jekyll's Final Thoughts I have to be honest and say I am not a fan of movie shorts - only because I always want MORE MORE MORE! I had fun with this film and hope to see more work by Dietrich Johnston in the future.
Not being a die-hard fan of science fiction or action, I was not expecting to love this movie when I saw recently at a film festival. Within a conservative estimate of three seconds, I was sucked in and there remained for several minutes past the closing credits. This movie is amazing. Director Dietrich Johnston is going to be huge. He knows what great filmmaking is all about. Lead actor Michael Bailey Smith is huge already, 6'4" I think. His acting was flawless, and he has all the presence of the top of the "A list." The movie has a bit of many genres, including horror, drama, and excellent comedy. It's a bit too violent for the little kiddies to enjoy their popcorn to, but done so in a tactful way that was not offensive. If you do not want to see a movie that is shot beautifully, hilarious, quick-paced, and makes you root for a vampire, then by all means do not attempt to see Blood Shot. If you do want to see such a movie, then you will definitely not be disappointed with this one.
A vampire hired by the government to eliminate hostile threats. That's the
kind of hook that the Blade movies are missing. It shouldn't just be about
vampires killing vampires. It's about putting the vampire to use in a
realistic government mission.
For a low budget short, this is really well done. There are some over the top action scenes, great characterizations and you really get a sense of the vampire and the cop in only 20 minutes of film. I hope they turn this into a full length movie, because there's definitely a lot to explore.
This movie rocks! If you love action movies and you hate terrorists, you'll love Bloodshot! The humor is really really... umm... different. I hope we see more films from Dietrich Johnston real soon. Highly recommended!
