Everything about this is weird. It's as if a low-rent John Milius was hired by a German-Spanish co-production to shoot an epic 18th (?) century vampire story based on an obscure video game, written by the same woman that adapted American Psycho, co-starring people like Meat Loaf, Billy Zane and Ben Kingsley in quite possibly one of his most dead performances; I mean, am I the only one that is shocked by the weirdness of this picture? It almost feels like an early Jess Franco film with a bit more money on the production design.
The film also has a very FX heavy gore thing going on, with a strange, Verhoeveian sex scene outside of a prison cell, and a psychedelic, end of the world ending that makes me wonder what the hell were people complaining about. It's not like Bloodrayne is a creation by Hideo Kojima, and even then an adaptation of that would be hilarious. I mean, has anyone played MGS? A movie adaptation would be the silliest thing ever. Guillermo del toro was right when he said that video games are unadaptable. If you are going to adapt one, just do what Boll did and make weird shit and hope it's not bad. I don't think this smorgasbord of a film works completely, but it is compelling in a strange, inexplicable way that I can't describe with words.
A showcase of Uwe Boll's complete lack of talent. It has "cheap" and "dull" written all over it. Not even bad enough to be really worthwile, just a waste of time.
Minor qualities: Ben Kingsley (why???), and a sexy scene with Kristanna Loken
Not very clear to m what happens when you get bitten by a vampire. Do you die or don't you. It didn't seem very consistent.
Not very bad, might even be the best of the 3 Blodrayne movies.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
