I watched Bloodrayne , starring Kristianna Loken, today. It was an entertaining bloodfest! I’ve not played the video game, but, if its like the movie, it might be a good play. There are those who don’t seem to be able to let go and be entertained by mindless short stories, as this “reviewer” at the IMDB seems to think. Nothing good to say at all. Well, I was entertained. Perhaps this wasn’t the social statement of the year. Perhaps it isn’t worthy to stand beside a Speilburg work, but Bloodrayne is watchable. The colors are vivid. The action is fairly tense. The gore happens often, but not too much. The cast is good looking. And, the story’s not too “heavy”, which many sci-fantasy or vampire movies can be.
In eighteenth century Romania, Rayne, a dhampir (half-human, half-vampire), prone to fits of blind blood rage but saddled with a compunction for humans, strives to avenge her mother’s rape by her father, Kagan, King of Vampires. Two vampire hunters, Sebastian and Vladimir, from the Brimstone Society persuade her to join their cause
I’d recommend this movie if you didn’t want to have to think and if you want to see lots of swords and stabbing.
