Critic Reviews for Lost Boys: The Thirst
Better than its predecessor, which (fine), isn't saying a whole lot.
...while Feldman's performance doesn't raise the movie beyond the ordinary, it keeps you from wanting to put your foot through the screen.
It's meager parade of drab kills and uninspired cartoon weaponry, leaning on Feldman to bring Lost Boys magic he doesn't possess.
Audience Reviews for Lost Boys: The Thirst
A slight improvement over the 2nd film, but that doesn't say much. It's good Feldman links the 3 films, but have to say his acting is pretty poor. Nice the story is centered around him more in this one. The plot is a bit silly but the effects of the Vampire kills are ok and very Blade like, along with the Vampire club idea. There are a few flash backs to the original and a nice tribute scene to Corey Haim. A better sequel for the fans than the 2nd film, but still quite average overall.
"You'll never grow old, and you'll never die." Well, at least the second part of that entreaty from 1987's The Lost Boys continues to hold true. With Lost Boys: The Thirst, gravelly voiced nostalgist Corey Feldman return for a third time to, uh, stake his claim upon a "franchise" that shouldn't even be one. A cut above 2008's bloodless second stab, The Tribe, The Thirst at least benefits from putting Feldman (and returning original Frog Brother Jamison Newlander) centre stage. So, if you can ignore the charmless directing and inept plot, there's a thin thread that can be traced to the first film. Any goodwill is all courtesy of Feldman, who's made this needless threequel feel somehow personal, from the comic-book store locale and references to old characters, to an unexpectedly moving scene that pays tribute to Corey Haim.
An improvement over the second one, with a tighter script and hey, Jamison Newlander! With an end guaranteed to make you facepalm.
