Super Reviewer

March 3, 2011
Dennis Law's Vampire Warriors doesn't have a whole lot to offer; yet, somehow it manages to get by.The plot is relatively light and it takes a while for it to get going. This results in a story that does a lot of diverging to fill 100 minutes of screen time. The film takes its time to buildup the story and characters; in doing so, scenes drag longer than they should just to get a simple point across. There are some attempts at humor along the way, but in a movie where its nature is more serious than a comedy, it only works so much.The action segments are the savior of this picture. The choreography is sublime with a lot of wire-work and fast-paced martial arts fighting. The CG effects are also good enough and used in moderation.There isn't a whole lot in the way of notable acting. Luxia Jiang's martial arts skills, which are fantastic, clearly outshine her acting. Chrissie Chau is a pretty face and she manages to put up a tolerable performance. Wah Yuen amuses from time to time as the film's main antagonist.Vampire Warriors has a passable story, mediocre characters, and excellent action. Watchable? Yes, but not highly recommendable.
