Hamfisted vampire effort with some nice ideas at times
19 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Trying to get his life back in order, a suicidal bouncer tries to protect the stripper at his club that has become the target of a religious zealot who has become a vampire threatening to unleash Armageddon on mankind through his newfound condition.

This could've been a potentially enjoyable and rousing vampire effort is instead a classic wasted opportunity. The main thing on display here is the fact that the religious zealot of a main character is one of the weakest main villains here who is thoroughly unconvincing in the role. Among the bigger issues with that is how he seems intent to mope about the shadows and yammer on in a series of clichéd Biblical quotations and verses concerning the downfall of man or being with his congregation than actually doing anything, and overall there's little here beyond being a vampire to really get anything out of him as a villain. Likewise, his status as a back-woods preacher that barely holds fifty- people in his congregation makes his posturing and world-domination plans way too comical, aided in no small part by his ineffectual human help and lack of vampiric back-up. That also brings up another big issue here in the disjointed plot which is rather chaotic throughout here with the real lack of vampiric activities overall, since there's very few scenes of confrontations between the hunter and his query as the film substitutes this lack of hunting them down for endless scenes of him trying to cope with his life or integrating himself into their family, which are nicely handled for once but lack any action. These scenes hold off the vampire activity so much that there's only a few fleeting moments of action in the whole second half which really slows it down considerably after the great opening right before the finale. These are compounded by the film's good points which signal this could've been something enjoyable, as there's an endless series of great action scenes from the rather intriguing plot that sets itself up quite nicely with the hotel ambush and his initial transformation sequence, the action in the bar and bringing along the quick attacks on the patrons which are rather enjoyable. The finale as well comes off even better with the abduction, a series of fine brawls and the shootouts along the big church confrontation all coming along with having enough vampire violence and great gore to go along with those potentially enjoyable elements. There's enough to see where this could've been great, but instead is a giant wasted opportunity.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and children-in- jeopardy.
