I didnt have high hopes when I turned on this movie and I was not disappointed, or rather I was disappointed, because I hoped I was wrong. BloodRayne (yet another movie about Vampires) was adapted from a video game by director Uwe Boll, the latest in a long line of such marginal films, this one staring Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), and Sir Ben Kingsley of all people. Michelle Rodriguez stars as well in the only role she seems to know how to play: the quintessential female action hero with attitude.
Almost from the opening frame Bloodrayne made little sense; the screen play was plain silly and hackneyed. For instance Lokens character, a human/Vampire hybrid, was at first a docile plaything, but she suddenly turned into a semi-skilled, sword wielding Vamp leaving a (long) trail of blood in her wake. The story was bad (though the sex scene was pretty good), the acting worse, the movie a terrible amateurish mess.
