rating: ** out of five
quick shot: decent run at the vampire mythos. werewolves versus vampire war is somewhat effective, though the story gets bogged down on who did what to whom too much. dave commented that the sequel would probably be better than the original (which i kind of agree with). kate beckinsale makes a kick-ass vampire though.
what i liked about the movie: the movie looked very slick, matrix-like. the fight scenes were interesting enough.
what i didn’t like: that this is clearly setup for a second movie – which may never come. (but i could be wrong)
