Critic Reviews for BloodRayne
Just when you thought camp was dead, along comes this bizarre cross between a Tarantino knockoff and a Hammer horror film.
Who is Uwe Boll and why does he hate moviegoers so? The German hack, the one-man Blitzkrieg of Bad, is the worst filmmaker in the movies today.
It's time to start paying attention to the oeuvre of German director Uwe Boll. At this rate, he'll become the Ed Wood of this new movie century.
After Rayne breaks out of the circus, it's a simple story, really, about a mixed-up girl who wants to slay her father.
Most of the budget seems to have been spent on the cast, with apparently little left over for sets or costumes.
Audience Reviews for BloodRayne
Terrible film. How does Ben Kingsly live with himself? Has he no shame? The script seems like it came right out of an 8th-grade student's creative writing journal. Bleh! (Still, it gets a star because it's not as bad as director Uwe Boll's insulting film, "Alone in the Dark".)
Bloodrayne is clearly an unfocused, poorly made action horror film with some impressive names attached to it. Bloodrayne can be regarded as an exercise in bad filmmaking 101. Although not as awful as the two other entries, this film is still pretty bad. With a paper thin story, a poor cast and very poor directing, Bloodrayne is a film that delivers mediocrity in spades. I thought that the film was pretty pointless and didn't deliver anything exciting or fun in an action horror film. As far as I'm concerned, the sequels to Underworld were far better than this train wreck. With awful acting complimenting his awful directing, Uwe Boll has created one of the worst horror flicks. You won't find anything of value with this film. This is just a poorly made film that never should have been made. The film lacks of a real inventive story mixed with bad effects and a very poorly written script really don't help. This film is a waste of time, and is one of the horror films that had the misfortune to watch. If you want a good action horror film to watch Underworld instead. I can't believe that Ben Kingsley agreed to star in this; luckily for him he would make Shutter Island with the great Martin Scorsese. Don't go in with high hopes for this one because this is one awful that truly is one to avoid. Uwe Boll has sunk to a new, and he clearly can't make a good film out of a video game. Fans of the game will surely hate this one.
I expected abit more, it was pretty Plain ^_^
