1.0 out of 5 stars Only if you love Aaliyah ..., 14 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Queen Of The Damned [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Chances are you are only going to like this film if you are a big fan of Aaliyah and even then maybe not because she is not really up to this role having neither the stage presence nor voice for this part and I feel it was unfair of the film-makers to put her in this role. But to be fair they had no idea about the rest of the casting either since only the actor playing David can actually act well in the part they've been given.

Add to that the terrible hash up of the plot ripped haphazardly from the pages of Anne Rice's two books and given the most awful corny cliched dialogue that you spend most of the film laughing and it isn't much of a film at all.

The supposed great music isn't so great either or at least the way the sound is treated in the film makes it insipid and uninspiring. Unless you are a huge fan of Aaliyah or you are having some friends round to watch a bad film for a laugh don't bother. If you've read the books then don't expect anything even vaguely resembling what you've read.

One spoiler to press this last point so stop here if you don't want to know -

In the book the vampires do not attack Leystad at the rock concert, which makes sense. They are angry with him for revealing their secrets publicly so attacking him en masse in front of a huge crowd of humans as they do in the film is, well, just a bit daft isn't it?
