A man in a bloody shirt enters his apartment. He's Vesser. His phone rings; his friend Sam invites him to join them for dinner the next night to meet a woman newly hired at a local museum. Vesser accepts and at a restaurant the four enjoy conversation. She's Angela, the museum's new night cataloger; she describes a new artifact, an English head crusher. Vesser perks up. Dinner goes well even though Sam tries too hard to push Vesser and Angela together. Vesser offers to walk her home. They stop in an alley and kiss; she asks him what he's wearing around his neck. With some reluctance, he shows her. From there, it's a startling turn. Until that moment, have they been blind? Written by
It is what it is. A male version of Buffy. The camera work and makeup is fantastic but the acting, mainly from the male lead is absolutely horrible, hell if you didn't know better you'd think it was a comedy. This guy must have been cast for his martial arts abilities and not for his acting. The fighting is good, the gore is great but you just can't escape the over acting and pretension that this guy exudes. It really makes this film unwatchable. Could have this been good? Yeah it could have been great. But with a performance that makes William Shatner look like Marlon Brando, the whole thing becomes a complete waste of time!
