This was a suprize to me, I had my doubts before I saw this movie, but was happily suprized with the result. Eddie Murphy portrays a Vampire that is truely scary and Angela Bassett is the woman he desires to be his Vampire Queen.
Set in Brooklyn, this has an unusual twist since this is one of the first Vampire films that has an African-American as the lead Vampire since Blackula was released in the late 1960's-early 1970's. Murphy has done a good job in portraying a Vampire who has class, dignity, strength and yet is a ruthless killer at the same time who will stop at nothing to find his queen.
Angela Bassett plays a tormented-haunted police officer who is an outcast in the police force, and she is trying to find answers to her life. Yet there is a secret to her past that will leave her with a life (or death) changing choice to make.
The humor is good, and Murphy dosen't use his usual sense of humor which he is famous for, which enhances this film. Overall, this is an entertaining movie that is worth watching over again.
