Bad acting, bad mullets, bad movie

  • May 31, 2006
  • by
I was fairly excited to see this movie. It has many decent actors and actresses that I like in other films, and it's a vampire movie, a plus in my book. Then I watched it and was left feeling abused. Not only was I robbed of 99 minutes of my life I will never recover, but my intelligence was insulted by a worthless plot and bad script. I can't help but feel violated I spent money to watch this.

The plot is pretty standard. The child of some big bad evil creature uses their own powers to turn around and defeat daddy. I liked that plot a LOT better when it was called Star Wars. The fight scenes are pitiful, usually just a chance for the FX department to trot out a few spurting bloody limbs and call it good. The end, if you can even call it that, was the biggest rip-off I have been victim of in quite some time.

Look, take your time and get another movie, any other movie. Even if you have to watch the worst romance movie of all time, or some movie you've already watched twenty times, I promise you it will be a better use of your time than this sad production.

Not recommended to anyone for any reason.

The Majestic Madsen Mullet
The next step in my quest to watch all 100 of Rotten Tomatoes' Worst of the Worst movies of the decade:     German director Uwe Boll is famous for two things: 1) making movies based on video games and 2) making some of the worst movies of all time. Coincedence? Doing some research, I found that according to Metacritic, the best reviewed movie based on a video game is Mortal Kombat. To repeat, Mortal Kombat is the best ever movie based on a video game. One of those movies, not directed …

Pros: None; okay the sex was pretty good; Loken's not bad to look at.     Cons: Everthing; okay the sex was pretty good.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. I didn’t 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 …

I've never played the game before but I knew of it and told myself I had to see this movie, especially because of the great cast. I had no idea what I was getting into and I wish I could get my money back for renting this DVD. One major blowup about this flick is that the fight sequences are way too sloppy and slow. You would think that nobody in this movie had training because everybody's out of shape and off on the fight choreography. There's no good soundtrack and the music they do play is boring. …

"Bloodrayne" has received nothing but poor publicity from the moment it hit the big screen. It's been written off for everything from bad acting, horrible action, and darn-near porn sequences. However, after watching this flick, I don't really see what all the fuss is about. Sure, the acting is really bad at times, but I've seen worse in many other flicks. The action looks pretty good in my opinion, though the blood and gore is actually silly at times. As far as the porn goes, there's a bunch of …

Pros: Some good action.     Cons: Stiff acting, thin plot.     The Bottom Line: If you are a fan of the genre, there are far worse films you could see.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Turning a video game into a feature film is often a daunting task. With a large built in audience, gamers tend to be very picky over film adaptations and agitate very easily over even the slightest deviation from …
