Edward Dalton: Yeah well, life is a bitch ain't it? Then you don't die.
A world of vampires and no humans to feed them. Sad, isn't it? I really liked the idea from the very beginning, but the way it is carried out is frightening. These vampires live with no respect for what they were or will be - the crisis, the lack of blood brings out the human, or better said, now vampire nature, of no morals, all for "crape diem" in a "diem" they want to last forever - which brings them to no respect for what they are. It is quite interesting to think about, and the ending - that horrible battle at the ending poses some good questions - would it really be like that?
Now now, some characters are typical, some are taken out of their stereotypes, but there is some good dialogue, as well as some bad one, with classic replies, too well-thought. Some things just happen for the sake of it, and people just appear when you need them - but I guess you can't avoid it in a movie like this. The worst build character was, I would say, Lionel 'Elvis' Cormac, but the villian wasn't too good either, nor the motif of her daughter opposing him. The originality doesn't lay here in the form the plot is carried, but by the idea as it is. So, I would say the directors did a great job at hiding the bad parts with a catching atmosphere, separating daylight - bright sun, beautiful sunsets and sun rays, warm colors, mostly yellows and oranges and night time - very cold colors, mostly blue and green, with an eire feeling. The actors were believable enough and the futuristic cities were also good, with realistic tv-spots, vampire subways and all.
It is something I find disturbing, however, I cannot quite figure out what it is - I feel there is something illogical out there, as to, why didn't they think there would be no blood left, or why isn't there any revolution, but this kind of questions can be ignored as long as the movie is rolling and just feel the vibe.
