Get real peopleBy a customer from Uxbridge , 30 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]People saying this is 'crap', what were they expecting? Shakespeare? It's a fantastic fun piece of light entertainment. Beautifully directed and very stylish. First rate sci fi fun at it's most accessible and enjoyable

Where was the story?By lastengland (102 reviews) from Winchester , 19 Sep 2013Disappointing film & at times not very well thought through. I think they were more interested in getting to the fight scenes. As for the ending...?????? Not one for my own collection.
A passable night's viewingBy clooneyfan (21 reviews) from Bridport , 03 Feb 2013Very watchable, classy no, but a good romp for a Saturday night - Didn't need a lot of cerebral exercising to watch
Style over substanceBy NESlami (18 reviews) from Leeds , 08 Mar 2012So this film is basically one action scene interspersed with token plot and 'character development' scenes. The style and sfx were very well done, however the film is the definition of style over substance.
I would only recommend this if you are a Mila Jovovich/vampire movie fanatic. Otherwise give it a wide berth.
Steer well clearBy a customer , 20 Jan 2012Unwatchably bad. Unsympathetic main character, no atmosphere, comic book visual wash doesn't work, just makes everything look bland and whited out, pace all wrong, dull story. A real stinker, save yourself the trouble. If I could have I would have given it a zero.
Lacks Pace and OriginalityBy TheMagicCow (3 reviews) from Dorking , 19 Nov 2011This film has nice lighting and photography. However, the pace of the story is painfully slow when Milla Jovovich is not kicking butt. It lacks originality, pulling ideas from V for Vendetta, Blade, Aeon Flux, Matrix, Underworld and Equilibrium:
- Vampires. Blood. Check.
- Dystopian future. Check.
- Fascist government, Check.
- Ninja-style fight sequences. Check.
- Genetic manipulation hijinx. Check.
Its all been done before, and better. If you want to see a comic book adaptation, go for Sin City, V, 300 or Blade.
