I rented this movie without any real knowledge of what it is about. I had no expectations about a kung-fu vampire movie, so there was pretty much no bias at all.
The very beginning is pretty cool. It has a very serious, dark, well thought out intro. It can be compared to Blade in the sense of intense action against vampires early on. There wasn't the excessive gore factor, which I believe ruins some films.
For most of the film, through the middle, it slacks off quite a bit. It is written into too much as a love story, and the jokes fall pretty flat.
At one point in the film (after the ambulance scene) I became excessively frustrated with trying to take this seriously.
The last twenty minutes or so really pick it up. The fighting is well choreographed, and the CGI was used well, not to an excess.
The beginning and end really assist the film. A rewrite of the middle could create a very strong movie that could set its place near Blade.
Still, it's better than Vampire in Brooklyn.
