As a standalone film this isn't half bad. I saw it years before teh series was even commissioned and like it then. yes the TV series is more polished, but lets face it they have hours and hours to achieve the same ends. Rutger Hauer hams it up with some style, Donald Sutherland is no Giles but good as always (though not as good as he can be) and Kristy Swanson demonstrates far more attitude as Buffy than SMG was ever allowed to because this is where Buffy finds out she is the chosen one, where she wrecks her school (for the first time!) and is changed from popular into slayer...something series always alludes to, but never really demonstrates. This is a good film in it's own right and provides a good back story for some of the series plotlines. Definitely worth seeing.

This is not a great film by any measure, on the other hand it is not the worst I have ever seen. It's not a patch on the TV series, but will be interesting for hardcore buffy fans. There are numerous inconsistencies between the film and the start of the TV series (I think the biggest is that buffy doesn't get any older in the 4 or so years between the film and the TV series!). That's not really the point though, this was where it all began! There are definately a few "Joss" moments in the script, but it's not really laugh out loud funny like the TV series. It deserves a watch if you are a Buffy fan or have a couple of free hours where you don't really want to use your brain. You can get it from a marketplace seller for a couple of quid, and for that I would say it is worth it.

This film does rock. It was the original and only Buffy at the time, and although it got panned by the critics it developed a cult following, and then of course years later the Buffy we all know and love was developed from this.
This film is not meant to be taken seriously, the action scenes are well put together, and the acting is great, but it is only meant to be lighthearted fun - some of the lines from both Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry just prove this.
Nobody should really compare this with the current series as, it was a stand alone film, it gave a good insight to the beginnings of a great character, but to make a series work you have to make adjustments especially if you hope for it to run for series after series.
All in all great film, very funny, Luke Perry is to die for, definite modern classic.

this film is perfect for those who have watched the series and are interested in how buffy came to be, the action is superb and the comedy moments are perfect. fans of the series who watch this film will notice lots of differences. this is a must see for die hard buffy fans

If you have a pesky mole you may be marked for destiny.

Buffy (Kristy Swanson) is the end of a long line of failed vampire slayers. Merrick (Donald Sutherland) must teach her how to survive and do her duty. First he has a problem of convincing her that he is just not a weird old man.

Starts off slowly; soon we have a stake in the movie.

For people interested in technology more than the movie Blu-ray may add a little color to the movie but not one new gesture of word. Now if they had 3D with a blood squirter.

I first saw this film as a student in 1993 when it had a cult following and people even quoted bits out of it(how funky is your chicken?)and had Buffy theme nights. Kristy Swanson is fabulous as a shallow it-girl type who is not all that impressed she is the chosen one. Funny, entertaining and not as nauseatingly all american & PC as SMG et al. Buy it , it will be a cult classic one day!

John Wayne's real name was Marion Morrison. Why do I mention this in a review of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the movie"? Simple. Because we can't help forming stereotypes based on a person's name. Would John Wayne have achieved the success he did had he retained his original name? I think not, for the simple reason that you would not expect somebody with the effeminate name of "Marion" to be a butch, no-nonsense, tough-talking cowboy. To succeed in the movies, Marion Morrison had to become macho-sounding John Wayne. By the same token, it is almost inconceivable that anyone bearing the name "Buffy" would be a kick-ass vampire slayer and saviour of the world. With apologies to anybody of that name, "Buffy" tends to suggest a vain, vacuous blonde, with a low I.Q., a passion for shopping and clothes, and more interested in boys, looking pretty, and partying all night than spending more time than is strictly necessary for studying. But that is the point. By burdening his eponymous heroine with the unlikely name of "Buffy", writer Joss Whedon is cleverly cocking a snook at such unjust stereotypes. Reviewers who criticise the film (and later television series) for what they consider to be an incongruous title, are missing the irony.
This 1992 film was universally panned by the critics when it first appeared, who didn't quite know what to make of it. Was it horror? Was it comedy? Was it a brave attempt at blending both genres?
Now, of course, as a direct consequence of the global phenomenon of the television series, this modest, understated film is enjoying a re-emergence and is even amassing something of a cult following. Like all radical scenarios, the basic premise took time to establish itself in the public psyche.
