Queen of the Damned Reviews
Despite the general nonsense of the result, the backstory is very interesting, as we see how the vampires' Queen Akasha was once in command of massive armies in Ancient Egypt, alongside her King. Aaliyah does give a ratehr creidble performance (her last) as the parasitic seductress, only interested in enslaving, but the structure makes it very clear that the screenplay is based on two novels.
Townsend is terrible by comparison, as far as I'm concerned he watched Interview and thought he was playing Louis, the world-weary vamp reluctant to reach for the stars.
The soundtrack itself is very nu-metal (ie, rubbish), and of course gives it a very straight-to-video feel. Could have been much better.
Stuart Townsend Boo!
