Most disappointing is Hark franchising his name before the sell-by date has expired on his own filmmaking career.

I loves me a good kung fu zombie vampire action horror comedy flick, and Vampire Hunters delivers.

Murky, third-rate martial-arts film.

Project has the stench less of rotting flesh than the whiff of a thoughtless quickie.
June 4, 2003
Pleasantly cheesy but undistinguished martial-arts and horror fare.

You begin to realize that whatever name they want to give this dish, the chief ingredients remain ham, cheese and corn.

Despite a few good fights, the stunts are indifferently executed.

Anything that reminds us that there are mass-entertainment options beyond Hollywood's banal formulas is worthwhile.

A passable attempt to mix the cheesy DIY effects of the first two Evil Dead movies with the... epic on a budget aesthetics of a The Bride With White Hair.

It's more silly than scary and relies excessively on surprisingly low-rent CGI effects and crude wirework to drum up interest in the slight story.
May 27, 2003
An uninspired addition to the generally endearing subgenre.

Midnight-movie-riffic, and the less sense it makes, the more fun it becomes.

The film's action sequences have been staged with a dazzling finesse, and the look of the film is splendid.

The Hong Kong movie industry is crumbling, and this painfully slack horror picture is another sign of its decay.

Good and evil duke it out with swift-moving martial arts leaps and swordplay, action that's so finely sliced and diced that it never quite connects.
