Who is Uwe Boll and why does he hate moviegoers so? The German hack, the one-man Blitzkrieg of Bad, is the worst filmmaker in the movies today.

Flip to any random sequence in BloodRayne and you'll see a film professor's most vibrant nightmare.

Less pleasurable than the throbbing bladder pain begat by too much movie theater soda, BloodRayne ably continues Uwe Boll's indisputable reign as the worst filmmaker on the planet.

At the rate Boll's improving, he'll achieve a film worthy of a thumbs up rating sometime late next decade.

It never occurs to you to think of the film as anything other than a silly swords-and-castles tale, and a particularly ineffective one at that.

Michael Madsen? Michelle Rodriguez? 'I'll take "Actors Who Should Never Appear in Period Pieces" for $500, Alex.'

BloodRayne is a movie of unconnected plot dots. In the hands of director Uwe "German Tax Dodge" Boll, a simple sword and sorcery story with vampiric overtones turns into genre-jumping attempts to find an audience.

BloodRayne is a visual joke, with Boll limply organizing a period horror/action film with all the confidence and subtlety of Baby Huey, and with about the same level of literacy.

The fight scenes are the worst kind of editing-room cheating, meant to cover for actors who haven't been trained to wield anything more intimidating than a cell phone.

Halfway through, the guys put Rayne through a training sequence, even though we've just seen her kick butt for 45 minutes, then there's a long, talky stretch that is woefully short of impaling - perhaps suggesting that the movie's financing was dwindling.

Madsen sounds like Mike Myer's "SNL" character "Lothar of the Hill people".

...[an] undercooked formulaic fright fable...why would anyone let him (Boll) get three feet within the range of an operating movie camera?

This is a movie that begs you not to watch it.

BloodRayne is quite cheesy -- the costumes resemble something out of the cosplay closet, and the dialogue is often appalling.

BloodRayne makes me wish that Mystery-Science Theater 3000 was still on the air. This would be perfect for them.

There isn't much more of a story. In fact, there isn't any story. Luckily, Loken is there to provide something to stare at, vacantly.

'You don't know the meaning of pain!' our heroine hisses at one point. Oh, honey, believe us, we do.

Just when you thought camp was dead, along comes this bizarre cross between a Tarantino knockoff and a Hammer horror film.

There's nothing certain in life except death, taxes and ... that movies based on video games are going to stink. Cue BloodRayne.

After Rayne breaks out of the circus, it's a simple story, really, about a mixed-up girl who wants to slay her father.
