Not nearly as bad as expected
5 September 2003 | by keiusSee all my reviews

After reading some of the comments here, i was expecting a horrible movie. However, after watching it, I was quite surprised. The Breed was alot better than i expected. I think people exagerated quite a bit when describing its faults. It isn't a gorefest or vampiric suckfest like some vampire movies. It was more like a moody detectives story set in an alternate/parallel reality type movie(I don't buy that future crap..not after watching the movie).

Anyway, I give it a 7/10. For vampire fans, definately worth watching. And hey...Ling Bai alone made this movie worth watching.
