Here, a new low has arrived (until Bloodrayne 2 and 3 came by). Even if Rayne is a Damphir (a half human half vampire creature), she shows none of the talents or wisdom, thanks to a witless script and very boring conversations between characters who can do nothing else but argue instead of looking at the camera and say "want your money back?"
Uwe Boll flicks (not movies, let alone films) are pretentious, boasting an empty chest and barking without any bite. They show no substance and very little style, and once more, a video game that had "some" promises is left bleeding to death.
If you really care about special features, your best bet is to look for interviews with the man himself, who seems to like to complain why people hate him (pick a wild guess!) and answers his phone during a commentary track (I don't remember if it's this particular title). There is a meagre making-of where everyone goes EPK and says how Boll managed something and what a visionary he is.
With this much (or this less) meat to hold on to, your hopes better be very low for anything Uwe Boll related. His big-budget days are looking like they're behind him for good... all that is needed is for the man to find a true artistic voice, but there's nothing suggesting that will happen.
Well, how do you explain a movie like "BloodRayne" otherwise? The infamous Boll's new film is yet another example of cinematic ineptitude, with bad acting from B-list stars, an atrocious script, and a plot that is actually thinner than the original video game. Someone put this movie out of its misery.
Rayne (Kristanna Loken) is a dhampir -- half human, half vampire, the result of a vampire raping a human. Escaping from a life as a sideshow freak, she decides to go kill her daddy Kagan (Sir Ben Kingsley). And Kagan is trying to grab the magical body parts of an ancient vampire, which will make him invincible.
Since Rayne is a good bloodsucker (animals and bad guys) she happily joins a band of vampire-haters, the Brimstone Society. Vladimir (Michael Madson), Sebastian (Matt Davis) and Katarin (Michelle Rodriegez) join forces with Rayne. But to stop Kagan, they will have to deal with his vicious vampire hordes.
If "Buffy" had ripped off "Blade" and "Lord of the Rings," then the result might have been something like "BloodRayne." Yes, the film is that unoriginal -- Uwe Boll tears off chunks of hit movies, and splatters them together into a movie of his own. But it cannot hide this simple fact: Boll has the skills of a mentally backward Yorkie.
Well, Boll is trying hard. He really, really tries hard to make this a thrilling, stunning adventure. But the entire movie is strangled in his ineptitude -- the action is Monty Pythonesque at best, with silly wrangling and geysers of blood. Lots of dismemberment. Funny sex against the jail bars. It's all almost campy, but somehow it's too inane to be.Read more ›
an amazing peice of garbage, and i love alot of bad films.
even seeing Kristanna Loken topless did not help this film.
do not buy it, rent it or see it.
you WILL want the 95 min of your life back.
