Don't Judge By The Concept

Most people will waste no time in scorning this film due to how outrageous the concept is. However, the creators have done an excellent job bringing this story to the big screen. Mixing the artistic splendor of '300' into this fictional, yet historical account makes for what I believe is a masterpiece and one of the best films of the year. Although the plot was a little blotchy in the beginning, all the pieces eventually come together for a rather compelling story that kept the audience at the edge of their seat in anticipation of what the conclusion to the battle between good and evil, humans and vampires, the North and the South, will be. A perfect play on the juxtaposition between the horrors of slavery by evil white men and the horrors of death by evil vampires.

Couldn't take it seriously....

This movie was totally over the top. If you're looking for plot-less sumer-time amusement, you're looking at the right movie. Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but definitely not good cinema. My boyfriend and I laughed through most of the "serious" parts. There were only about 2 scenes that made the 3D worth it, so probably for your money you should just see it in traditional format.

Serious play on a historical figure doing unnatural things

Not much to say, if you like vampire movies and ones about maturing into the hero, this is good. A similar character progression like in Wanted with the film style and action of 300. Only two sexual reference scenes and the R rating is from the blood, dismemberment, and mature themes. My teenager enjoyed it.

I read the book before I went to this movie. The book was blah, and I wasn't going to go see the movie, but I thought.. what could it hurt? So, I did. The only things in common between the book and the movie = character names, basic plot idea. The movie was dramatic at times, but shallow. The special effects were cool. I have to say the theater must have thought this would flop because it only has 3 running times on opening weekend. But overall I'd say go watch this movie when you have nothing else to do. And, if you don't have much money, it's ok to wait for this one to come out and rent - you wouldn't be missing much.
