By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 12 2007
Format: DVD
Tsui Hark has created some of Chinese cinema's best, such as "Chinese Ghost Story," "Zu Warriors" and "Once Upon A Time in China."

So why exactly did he attach his name to this murky, incoherent action flick? "Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters" is an attempt to recapture the kung-fu/vampire magic on the 1980s, but it manages to have neither plot nor character development. But it does have some wicked vampires and creepy atmosphere... its saving grace.

China is apparently riddled with the undead -- zombies that turn into vampires, and feed on the living. Wind, Thunder, Rain, Lighting and their master roam around getting rid of them, but during one nasty attack their master vanishes.

Three months later, they come to the Jiang house, where the beautiful Sasa has just been wed to young Master Jiang -- all six of whose past brides died on their wedding night. The next morning, HE'S the one dead of a snakebite. And so the Vampire Hunters are hired to find the snake, even as one of them falls in love with Sasa.

But Master Jiang has some secrets -- he preserves all his relatives in wax, and keeps a massive store of gold somewhere in the mansion (which is why Sasa's bandit brother married her into the family). And when a zombie wrangler arrives, the waxed corpses will return to unlife -- and the arrival of the king vampire will set off the final showdown between vampires and Vampire Hunters.

Admittedly with a name like "Vampire Hunters," you're expecting a cheesy movie, probably without much plot. And this movie delivers on that score, attempting to recapture the martial-arts/vampire-hunting charm of old "Mr. Vampire" style flicks, but forgetting to include the humor and slapsticky kung-fu.

Tsui Hark is an amazing producer and director who has trained many a great action director such as John Woo. But this film? Ouch! Confusing plot. Stupid dialog. Laughable zombies (they hop). Maybe it was meant to be a comedy.
Check out the 'Once Upon A Time in China' set of DVDs with Jet Li for a better idea of what Tsui Hark is capable of and stay from this turkey! The HK equivalant of Plan 9 from Outer Space.

My family loves really stupid movies and this one actually passes out of that genre into good fun. The fight scenes were surprisingly well done; the actors were charming. And, yes, the film had almost no logic, but it got to the point that we just said "HUH?" when it would suddenly not make sense (and there were so many loose threads at the end!! What about the snake?? What about Jiao and Dragon??? What about all the bandits who got attacked???). And when the "zombie wrangler" (that is a truly masterful stupid translation) awakens the zombies and they begin to HOP everywhere -- well, stupid fun just doesn't get any better.

The master vampire in this movie looks exactly like a burnt manikin dummy being pulled through the air by a wire. The special effects in this movie is very cheesey. The acting is also bad. The actors hardly have a script, but I guess that they didn't need one since they spend 90% of the movie fighting each other.
If you want to watch a good Vampire martial arts movie, than I sugest that you get the original Blade, or From Dust till Dawn part 1.

This movie has no central point. It jumps back and forth between the war between humans and vampires and the race for the gold. And what do they mean by VAMPIRES? The monsters don't even look like blood suckers. They look like grotesque zombies, which supposed to turn into vampires after eating humans. Well, they ate plenty of flesh but did not turn into vampires.
I watched it untill the end hoping that it will get better but it didn't. Waste of time and money.

I decided to view Vampire Hunters for two reasons: Its intriguing premise of zombie/vampire hybrids invading rural China and also because the legendary Tsui Hark's name is attached to it. Little did I know that Hark did not direct this film. He produced it and wrote the script but the film is sloppily directed by a fellow by the name of Wellson Chin. In the grand scheme of things Vampire Hunters is a mess, even though there are a few things to like about this film.
In 17th century rural China during the Ching dynasty, zombies roam the land feeding on human flesh, a nasty habit that turns them into vampires. Only a handful of people dare to challenge these night-crawling demons; 4 warriors named "Wind", "Thunder", "Rain" "Lightning" and their master Mao Shan. Their mission is to hunt down and destroy the Vampire King, a floating bloodsucking demon. Using their "vampire compass", they are led to the house of a rich mortician, whose son is set to marry the beautiful woman "Sosa" and where the Vampire King is believed to be hiding. There is also another subplot involving Sosa's crazy brother "Dragon", who is determined to find the gold that is rumoured to be hidden in the mortician's household.
I found Vampire Hunter's storyline very hard to follow but soon gave up on trying to make sense of the plot after realizing that this film is just a hodge-podge of wacky martial arts, bad special effects and awkward acting that is next to impossible to make sense of. The action sequences feel cartoonish and choreographed, and the dialogue(from the English dubbed version) is choppy and robotic, similar to dialogue you get from an anime film. It also doesn't help that the characters keep uttering stupid phrases the likes of "We're in love, If we live let's get married".
