Movie Info

A powerful, age-old bloodsucker attempts to gather the blood essence that will enable him to walk in daylight -- and the only thing standing between his success and the forthcoming age of darkness is a trio of skilled vampire slayers in director Dante Lam's The Twins Effect. Top agent Reeve (Ekin Cheng) works for a secret organization dedicated to ridding the world of the fanged menace, and though his razor-sharp fighting skills -- not to mention and the occasional dose of vampire blood -- give

The martial arts action is frequently fun to watch...but these good bits and pieces are stitched together by means of a screenplay that is unusually incoherent, even by the diminished standards of dumb action movies.

Audience Reviews for Vampire Effect (Chin gei bin) (The Twins Effect)

Can't say much about the story here; doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But this is, well, charming. Yes, it's a charming vampire movie, and Jackie Chan adds just the right kind of humor to the whole project. He, too, is his usual charming self.

A pair of vampire hunters team up with vampire prince to thwart the plans of an evil Euro-vamp bent on unlocking the secret of vampire immortality in this hybrid of Asian style chop socky mayhem and western vampire mythology. The problem with a lot of vampire films is that they tend to take themselves far too seriously. This film does involve a lot of humour but the balance isn't quite right. The action scenes are quite well done with some nice stunt work and decent effects, but again they're a little too po-faced, whereas all the scenes in between are so broadly played they come across like a romantic sitcom. The best scenes are the ones involving a nice cameo by Jackie Chan who brings his usual blend of comedy and action in equal measure. But the fact is, the combination of broad slapstick, flashy action and MTV style direction that made it seem a little too crude and juvenile for my tastes are the very reasons why i think kids will get a real kick out of it.

Japanese pop stars are all that stands between humanity and a powerful vampire. It's closer to Buffy the Vampire Slayer than a serious horror flick, though fast-paced enough to be enjoyable. Jackie Chan's picture on the box art is justified by a 10-minute cameo as a paramedic, giving him a chance to indulge in some serious Kung-Foolery.
