Not really certain how to make of the German Vampire film “We Are The Night”. It has some cool moments that made the film work, the female vampires in the film really do display qualities that make the vampire what it is; able to defy gravity, enhanced strength and speed, accelerated healing and a vulnerability to sunlight. It does work on some levels as director Dennis Gansel maneuvers the story around the simple concept that take familiar elements from “Near Dark”, “The Lost Boys” and even “Sex and the City”.

Yes, this film focuses on four female vampires who enjoy who and what they are. Yet, they exhibit human qualities such as vanity, loneliness, and the need to be wanted. There are strong feminism themes but they were merely hinted upon. Much of their history is underdeveloped, but their customs are much like the ones observed by amazons. The action in the film can be stimulating as the actress who played Charlotte stole the show.

The film had some good ambition and potential going for it, but the forced elements such as the love story between Lena and Tom proved to be its downfall.

In a nutshell, “We Are The Night” is your average, standard vampire film. Not good but will prove to be a diversion for lazy evenings.

RENTAL [2 ½ Out of 5 Stars]
