    Lucy Liu is out for revenge in the vampire horror film Rise: Blood Hunter. When investigative reporter Sadie Blake stumbles upon a clan of vampires they brutally kill her, but she comes back as a vampire and is intent on destroying them; meanwhile a cop desperately searches for the fiend that murdered his daughter, unaware that it's the same vampire clan that Sadie's hunting. Liu gives a fairly good performance and is backed by a solid supporting cast that includes Michael Chiklis and Carla Gugino. Additionally, the film doesn't hold back on the gore and violence of the vampire attacks. But the storytelling is rather weak and doesn't do a lot of character and plot development. Yet while it's a little thin, Rise: Blood Hunter is a frightening and gritty revenge tale.

    A reporter (Lucy Liu) pursues the peculiar death of a teenage girl that both her publisher and the police refuse to investigate further. This is a pretty good vampire movie with sufficient doses of skin and blood, but I was most arrested by Liu in her best movie performance - it's true! She convincingly conveys the horrifying self-realization of what it would be like to join the ranks of the undead, which is an interesting angle you rarely find in vamp flicks. After coming to grips with her accursed fate, she sets out to destroy the nest of vampires that turned her so they cannot take another soul, and along the way becomes aligned with a renegade vampire hunter who helps her adjust and the dead girl's father who happens to be a cop. The biggest drawback is the very choppy flow to the movie - too many scenes seem rushed and bump into each other without enough explanation. I would like to see the unrated DVD version which is 22 minutes longer (twenty-two!) which I feel would flesh out, so to speak, the overall story.

    I like Lucy Liu, but the whole "good vampire" spiel has been done before, and better.

    I'll be quite brief in this review for I feel that this movie fails to provide good scares and a good story. First off, Lucy Liu is plainly a bad actress. She can't act. This movie still proves that. I'd figured she'd retire after the lame Charlie's Angels movies. Anyways, getting back to this film, the movie is full of flaws, the dialogue between the characters is completely utter garbage and the plot borrows alot of from the Blade franchise, which in my opinion was terrible. On a high note on this film, Marilyn Manson makes a cameo as a bartender. Which I found was amusing to see. At least he was better than Lucy Liu, and he had less than 5 minutes on screen. I thought the movie was bad and with Lucy liu attempting the Buffy the vampire slayer routine; it just didn't work.
