Granted, with a movie such as "Chinese Speaking Vampires", then I wasn't really expecting this 2021 to prove to be a phenomenal and outstanding cinema moment. But since it was a movie that I hadn't already seen, then of course I found the time to sit down and watch it.
And while I managed to sit through the entire movie, I can only claim to be mildly entertained. Writer Davy Williams didn't exactly come up with a ground-breaking storyline here. Sure, there were the odd funny moment here and there throughout the course of the movie, but it didn't feel like this was supposed to be a funny movie. So if that is the case, and "Chinese Speaking Vampires" is supposed to be a full-blown serious movie, then director Randy Kent definitely had his hands full.
The storyline in this movie was just so far out there, and it definitely had potential to be one of those movies so bad they become enjoyable and fun to watch. But "Chinese Speaking Vampires" just never fully transcended into that area. Which made for a somewhat odd movie experience. Things that took place in the storyline were so far out there and ludicrous, that I didn't know if I was supposed to take it as a spoof or actually take it seriously.
The acting in the movie was adequate, that definitely was one of the stronger sides to "Chinese Speaking Vampires". I will say that Davy Williams (playing Tony) and June Lee (playing Reika) were actually the two most outstanding performers in the movie.
While "Chinese Speaking Vampires" was watchable, it just didn't really have what mattered, and the movie fell just short of being mediocre. As such, then I am rating "Chinese Speaking Vampires" a four out of ten stars. It is hardly a movie that you'll watch more than once.
