After finding that his thought-dead brother has been reborn as a vampire king looking to overthrow humanity, a soldier sets out to track him and his clan down before they can implement their plans.
This is altogether not-too-terrible of a vampire/action film entry. The biggest part about making this a rather enjoyable affair is due to the inclusion of a ton of action set-pieces that really drive the film along, from the car chase with motorcycles, buggies and a big rig, a great shootout in a nightclub while a raging dance track blares over the sequence and a couple of decent fights spread throughout that tend to make this one a lot more entertaining than it really should be. These tend to drive the film along at a rather impressive clip with plenty of encounters of the clan to make for a really break-neck styled effort since it's barely over an hour and doesn't even reach eighty minutes so this one tends to rush through everything to make for a rather frenetic pace along the way. That tends to make this one contain just enough blood and gore to make for quite entertaining and enjoyable efforts, although it definitely has some pretty big flaws present. One of the biggest is the rather inane plot, which is a mess and feels like a cliché that's been done over and over too many times, as this one tends to wander through several utterly stupid and nonsensical plot-lines to get back to it's main story about the now-vampire brother who seems to do almost nothing useful here beyond a little staring at the camera as the main parts of this one feature him running around with the car and not out on his main purpose and it feels incredibly haphazard as a result. While this is forgivable, there's little about the plain irritating narration that can be saved as this is quite tiresome and grows worse as time goes on as this dullard continuously narrates nonsense that's carried out right in front of us to make it seem like a wise old man is telling great secrets about the mysterious nature of the universe. That's how bad it gets and really doesn't do the film any favors beyond the clichéd story, but otherwise this one isn't that bad.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Violence and Brief Nudity.
