These bad-boy auteurs will have to discover some new ideas if they don't want to end up as terminally soulless as the monsters who stalk their movie.

This is the "Reservoir Dogs" with a twist of "Near Dark" set to the tune of "Assault on Precinct 13."

Based on an early Tarantino script, Rodriguez' movie is an incoherent B-pic, in which the sensibilities of the two filmmakers clash.

It is a shame to see so much good talent giving such low-yield results.

November 18, 2008
Energetic low-budget vampire nonsense from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

A deliriously trashy, exuberantly vulgar, lavishly appointed exploitation picture, this weird combo of road-kill movie and martial-arts vampire gorefest is made to order for the stimulation of teenage boys.

On a mindless exploitation level this is pretty good, but on other levels it seems to make promises that it fails to deliver on.

A tired, humorless pastiche of various exploitation genres that is not the least bit imaginative in its campy deconstruction of conventions.

Nihilistic and initally unpleasant ... Once the vampires appear (unfortunately about 60 minutes too late), the movie becomes uproarious entertaiment with the most intense humans vs. vampires showdown since 1985's Fright Night.

Like a Cheesecake Blizzard: It's a pulpy mess loaded with empty calories, but it's so divine that once you start, you can't help but shovel it into your mouth until the last drop, brain freeze and diet be damned.

These guys were going for a B-movie feel, lots of blood, lots of guts, lots of tits and ass, and lots of fun, and for the most part, they achieved their goals.

This is a B-movie, albeit a largish budget B-movie, but with an undeniable B-movie spirit.

Rodriguez has a lot of fun dreaming up cool ways to kill people (he's making this his life's work), but he also gets something resembling a performance from Tarantino and transforms Clooney into a full-fledged movie star.

Mr. Rodriguez demonstrates his talents more clearly than ever -- he's visually inventive, quick-witted and a fabulous editor -- while still hampering himself with sophomoric material.

Ask yourself "am I the kind of person who finds topless vampire strippers a source of constant amusement?" Only those who answer an enthusiastic "YES!" need apply.

I can think of worse things to sit through than an orgy of bullets, exploding corpses, and stripper vampires.

This film is 'exploitation' in more than one sense of the word.

A weird double-bill in itself: Part one's a crime drama, part two vampire splatter flick. It's an awkward pairing, but there's fun to be had.
