4.0 out of 5 stars A film to sink your teeth into! May 10 2014
By Robert Badgley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Daybreakers(released Sept/09)stars,among others,Ethan Hawke,Willem Dafoe,Claudia Karvan,Michael Dorman,Sam Neill and Jay Laga'aia.This film is a pretty good vampire flick, with a nice twist.In this one the vampires,instead of being a sub class living amongst humans,are actually the dominant species.The story deals with their long term attempts at survival.And speaking of which,let's look at that.
The story finds Hawke as a blood specialist working for a pharmaceutical company run by Neill.Vampires now rule the earth with the remaining human population dwindled down to a small percentage.Because of the lack of humans from which to feed off of,the blood supply is dangerously low and getting lower everyday,as we witness vamps lining up to drink fluids that go from 20% human blood content,down to 5%.Another side effect to this shortage is that vamps who cannot afford to pay the ever rising high price,are turning back into unthinking savages(subsiders) who will prey even on their own kind.The company is bound to be the first to come up with a blood substitute.
Hawke is technically a vamp but he has never been comfortable in his own skin.On the way home from work one night he almost gets into an accident with another vehicle.It contains humans,which Hawke hustles into his own car as the police show up.After they leave the humans depart,but not without knowing his name and place of work.
Hawke's own brother is a vamp also,the one in fact that turned Hawke in the first place.He works for the military and later that night he returns from duty with a bottle of pure human blood which Hawke refuses to ingest.After a brief argument the two are confronted by a subsider, who used to be Hawke's gardener.After a close encounter they manage to kill it.

Watched this once and thought it was pretty good, so I bought it. Disappointed on the second viewing. This story has been told too many times.

2.0 out of 5 stars A New Low for Vampire Flicks Jan. 13 2012
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
A unique marketing campaign gave Daybreakers some semblance of interest when it was being prepped for release, but the final picture is one of the most worn out and stupefying vampire movies ever to grace the cinema, giving F.W. Murnau and Max Schreck complete permission to rise from their graves and slap these filmmakers silly.

Daybreakers is about as predictable as one can get. It's got the shot-grade style of the Underworld series (and a few nips from its monsters) with the poor man's excuse for a cover up story. The premise is simple enough. A vampire plague (go figure) has turned 90% of humans into the undead, leaving the remaining 10% of normal humans to be rounded up and put into blood farms to feed the masses. However, as the blood supply begins running short, the vampires begin mutating into a deadly subspecies of vicious, animal-like creatures. Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) is a researcher for a major U.S. conglomerate looking to create a synthetic blood compound that can feed the population. Things go awry when he meets up with humans who try to turn him to their cause with the promise of a cure for the vampiric plague. But all is not as it seems, and there is a sinister agenda playing out behind the scenes. Someone doesn't want the cure to work.

If the contrived and uninspired plot design doesn't bore you, the movie itself surely will. Daybreakers is about as much fun as standing in line with a group of Twilight fans. At the very least, they are watching a better example of a vampire film, and that says a lot. The problem with the film is that it could have been rather good, had it not been for some outlandishly moronic creative decisions. It all falls apart thanks to one glaring, undeniable flaw: the cure itself.

This was a very original and inventive twist on the vampire sub genre. It is a bleak look at a dystopian future where mankind has been hunted down to near extinction by the vampire majority, who now face a complete breakdown of their society as blood shortages create global chaos. Starvation cause the vampires to regress into deformed crazed cannibals that eventually die. The few human survivors take a desperate last stand against the increasingly desperate vampires. There was a lot to read into the multi-faceted story as a social and political commentary. Or if you're more so inclined, it is action packed with buckets of blood and viscera generously thrown about the screen, as well as awesome creature effects, lots of shooting, gruesome deaths, and car chases. Even a hint of romance. It also has a great cast going for it. In general, a well-rounded crowd pleaser.
