The snoopy reporter Sadie Blake is called by her nerd colleague Ethan Mills that has deciphered a code and found an address in Koreatown from information of the Goth Tricia Rawlins about a bloody cult. Sadie does not give attention to Ethan, but when she sees on the front page of the news that Tricia has been found dead in a dumpster in Koreatown, she decides to visit the address. She finds an abandoned house with a gruesome basement full of blood and she immediately drives to Ethan's apartment. She finds the place in a complete mess and is abducted by a stranger and taken to Bishop, who wants to know what Tricia has told her. Then, Bishop and his mate Eve kill Sadie and they have a necrophilic threesome with her body. Later, Sadie awakes in the freezer of the morgue and sooner she realizes that she is a vampire and promises revenge to her sire. Written by

Lucy Liu plays Sadie Blake out for revenge for misdeeds done to her. We flash back to the origin of her thirst for vengeance,back when she was a reporter out trying to uncover the secret behind the recent upswing in missing persons in the area and their connection to secret party invitations announcing a "feeding".She finds out the hard way that vampires exist in the city, as they turn her into one.With all claims to her human life gone,Sadie vows to take down all of the vampires who've done her wrong.Believe me,"Rise" is actually better than action-packed "Blade" or "Underworld".At least it offers some lovely scenes of female nudity and plenty of blood.Of course the story is routine and forgettable and there is no suspense,but I can easily say that I enjoyed it.Grab some beer and give it a look.
