Good solid filmBy daytripper2k (12 reviews) , 15 Jun 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]After seeing an advanced preview of this film. I have decided to fill in some details that you need to know before going to see this film. Due to the fact when I told my mate its a vampire film he thought twig light
The type of film is horror vampire, not twilight. The vampires are the bad guys and they dont twinkle in the light. The world is gritty, everyone doesnt take their shirt off at a moments notice and no one looks like they spend all day in the gym.
So this film is a road/survival/coming of age film. Following the journey of two as they head to a promise land of Eden to escape the vampires and be safe.
This isnt a closet monster film so no jumps.
The film is solid in story, acting and well shot. There is a missed beat towards the end where the film starts to sneak into big bad territory like say blade but that is short lived.
One thing that I found to be a bit of a mistake on the part of the story was, mister is supposed to be a hard nut that kills vampires. Due to this he gets recognition and respect. However all through the film you see mobs of civilians (and another group) manhandling vampires like animals. So if anyone can manhandle them why is he held is so much regard.
all in all a lot better than daybreakers
