Critic Reviews for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (40)

  • While he's fine playing bemused and beleaguered, Routh can't muster the edginess that Dylan is also meant to have. Diggs looks fabulous, but has his own problems with the dangerous stuff.

  • Brings vampires, werewolves, zombies, detective noir and spoofy comedy together for a murky genre gumbo with barely any flavor.

  • A monster mash and genre mash-up that leaves one pining for the swagger of Hellboy.

  • Lets the likeable erstwhile Superman do his best impression of a jaded P.I., down to one of the most ineffectually boyish attempts at a grizzled voiceover in memory.

Audience Reviews for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

  • Sep 26, 2012
    Dylan Dog(Brandon Routh) is a private investigator who specializes in domestic cases in New Orleans, along with his assistant Marcus(Sam Huntington). However, he finds himself reluctantly drawn back into the world of the supernatural when he goes to the aid of Elizabeth(Anita Briem) when her father, an importer, is found brutally murdered in their Garden District home. Come to think of it, Gabriel(Peter Stormare) is none too happy to see Dylan either while for Vargas(Taye Diggs) it is business as usual as he sells vampire blood out of his club. "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" starts badly and ends awkwardly with a denouement that does not really make a whole lot of sense. In between there is not a half bad movie that while not as good as an average episode of either "Grimm" or "Lost Girl," still manages a decent amount of world building. It is neat what it does with New Orleans but it was not necessary to set it there.(One question: What did the undead do during Katrina? Or am I better off not knowing?) And I especially liked the look into zombie culture, with the comic relief neatly offsetting some of the dourness. While Brandon Routh, whose bland charm mixes badly with the attempt to do hard boiled noir, is badly miscast, at least, Taye Diggs is having fun.

    Surprisingly not bad... campy 'who-done-it' with zombies, and werewolves, and monsters oh my!

    I really really really wish that Munroe's unproduced animated film Cat Tale was released instead of this. Crap that's absolutely trashy. I hated this movie. Cat Tale would definetely better than this. Even if its bad.

    Silly junk has ludicrous situations and mostly uninspired acting but Sam Huntington is enjoyably glib and charmingly goofy.
