You can read my review of this for more details. Most important for fans of Hollywood action movies, there are no big stars in this sci-fi movie, so you don't know who is going to live or die. That gave me a whole extra bit of suspense that always seems to be missing in major releases.

Here's a documentary that made a difference. It's the story of a heavy metal band that influenced other metal bands but never really made it themselves. But as a result of this movie, Anvil got the chance to go on tour like they never did in their younger days. Michael Moore should be jealous of this kind of return on investment.
Before Twilight was a twinkle in your teen's eye, this foreign vampire flick was already out there showing the world what real young blood suckers act like. It was vampire before vampire was cool, (this time around, anyway).
A genuine, passionate, heartfelt story that brought Mickey Rourke back in the limelight. The story around the film is, granted, a good bit of the appeal. But the film is worth the watch. Not an easy film, but a good one that will stand the test of time.
