Uwe Boll makes a vampire movie.

Yeah this movie was pretty good, and it does get just little bit boring, but it does have some bad ass fight scenes, and the acting is pretty good too. I got to say Roman does look like a great place to film a vampire movie. When her sword her broke that make me a little disappointed, and also the ending was a little silly, but it's still an entertaining action movie to watch, so yeah it does have flaws, but it's still a pretty good movie. 3.5/5

Should have been given more attention to be a great 'Underworld' movie look alike...

I figured Bloodrayne would be crap, because despite the fact that it looks well designed on the surface and has a good cast, Uwe Boll directed it.

And Bloodrayne's downfall is the fact that its uninspired. Uwe Boll directs the actors to attempt to let the story flow naturally and say their lines in the most bare basic manner possible, making them give nothing to the film but their reputations and physical statured. The plot is uninspired and bare basic with the confusion coming from the fact that the dynamics occur in so many places at so many times with unbalanced pacing that keeping up with them loses its worthiness. And the setting becomes dull and dreary, a world supposedly full of vampires in a manner not believable as it coincidentally occurs to all the main characters yet not to what the camera does it identify. Basically, the setting is weak, and the characters are all in dull costumes with obvious wigs.
But the lack of inspiration in the action is the main problem. The action seems too improvised, and clearly had to be performed by the actors who in fear of getting injured have moved slowly and softly, resulting in things being weak and not convincingly harmful as actions of violence. The editing was also a little fast, although no worse than all the crappy action films today like Taken 2 or A Good Day to Die Hard. Still, it could have been better, and could have done without the poor quality slow motion used in half of the most important parts.
Plus, the script and plot dynamics are a boring a dreary bunch with minimal creativity or originality, or even so much as the mind it a 3-year old's efforts put into it. It leaves little for the actors to work with, but they supply little themselves do it doesn't even matter, which is a shame considering the efforts of Michael Madsen, Michelle Rodriguez and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley at some of their worst. They put the physicality into their roles, but no heart of an actor. Plus, Kristanna Loken makes a bland lead as an actress who can work the physicality and show off her breasts without so much as a thought as to what her character might be thinking as something happens in the head of Rayne as she seeks vengeance for the "rape" and murder of her mother. She just becomes a hollow shell of a Uma Thurman wannabe who fails spectacularly.
Basically, Uwe Boll was given the budget for Bloodrayne but refused to give in enough effort to bring the $25 million into creating an atmosphere that Bloodrayne could work with, and although it seems like one of his finer works, that in itself is not a credential.

Another disaster from Uwe Boll.

Great mysteries of the last 100 years:

What happened to Amelia Earhart?
Who was the Zodiac Killer?
How exactly did Uwe Boll get an actor of Ben Kingsley's pedigree to perform in this steaming pile of crap?

This was truly an awful movie. From terrible dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and a plot and motivations that make no sense, this is horribleness of epic proportions. Heck, the sex scene that takes place in the middle of the movie is simply for the purposes of seeing Kristanna Loken naked. Seriously, there is no reason for it at all, no character relationships, nothing. Even the incidental music soundtrack sounds like little more than a chimpanzee making a half-hearted attempt to bang out "Chop Sticks" on a keyboard.

Truly terrible with no redeeming value.

Upside: lot of stars. Downside: almost everything else. Good for anyone who likes the occasional action gore film putting story second...or third...or fourth. Replay value: low

Story line isn't very original. Only thing that saves this movie is blood, and Kristanna Loken's hot body.

From a production standpoint this isn't a bad looking film. That and Meat Loaf doesn't do too bad with the material he's given, but otherwise this has no redeeming factors whatsoever. Uwe Boll might be able to pull in star talent (even if they do generally phone their performance in) and on occasion he manages to pick out a good shot, but he's a bad director full stop. Sorry Uwe, but I speak truth.

Blah blah Michelle Rodriguez is awesome until underhand Hollywood sexism gets her killed and the movie goes back to sucking. Watch it if you like chicks being bad ass but otherwise don't bother and you can turn the movie off after Michelle Rodriguez kicks it

Another ludicrous video game movie from the master of garbage video game movies, complete with an ensemble of embarrassed A-list actors.

This is a good movie, it held true to the video game!
