Could've been better, could've been worse
Well, I happened to wake up around 2 in the morning (long story) and caught Blood Angels a little less than halfway into the movie. It sounded cool (albeit too good to be true), so I read the summary. I expected it to be fairly cheesy.
I wasn't disappointed. It was.... Cheez-Nip cheesy. Which is to say not-really-but-still-somewhat cheesy. (Anyone who's ever eaten a Cheez-Nip will understand.)
However, it wasn't altogether intolerable. The Asian DJ was really funny (was he the one who played Roy in The Perfect Score?), and the girls were gorgeous. (Of course. Who'd watch a vampire movie with ugly chicks?) I like the whole grrrl-vampire team thing. Makes me feel adventurous. But that couldn't make me ignore the tragic quality of the special effects. When will they learn that if you're gonna make fake blood using CGs, it's not supposed to look radioactive? I hate it when they have that lava-lamp-looking orangey fake-tastic blood. Guess what? That's what they used. WHY??
Also, if you rip out a guy's spine, he most likely will not look at you in horror for a few seconds before falling down.
So anyway, the plot was fairly simple, and the acting was so-so. I liked how Jones was evil, but not SO evil that it was annoying. He was really funny at the end, actually. That was a pleasant surprise and a relief. And his voice was kinda cool.
Oh, but one thing: if you receive the blood of 2 half-vampires, that doesn't necessarily make you a WHOLE vampire. It just makes you.... more half-vampire. Quality over quantity, right? Ah well.
Overall, the movie wasn't spectacular, and the content was a little naughty for my conservative tastes, but it was pretty fun to watch.
(....You get that if you saw the movie, see? :D)
