Gothic action adventure prequel to the popular video game. In medieval Romania, the evil Lord Kagan (Ben Kingsley), vampire supreme, seeks to increase his dominion over the land. On hearing of three magical talismans that can bestow immortality, Kagan scours the country in his quest for ultimate power. Ranged against him are the Brimstone Society, devoted to restoring order to the land, and stripping Kagan of his power once and for all. They soon enlist the help of Bloodrayne (Kristanna Loken), a half-human, half-vampire warrior, who they train to hunt down the forces of darkness. Her lust for vengeance, and blood, eventually leads her to the man who raped and brutally murdered her mother - her father, Lord Kagan.

Lead character Rayne (Kristanna Loken on slumming duty following her stint in 'Terminator 3') is one of those half human/half vampire creatures which seemed to be prevalent in horror movies following 'Blade'. Known as a 'Dhampir' (!) she is the daughter of Kagen - King of the Vampires (Kingsley. Natch) who murdered Raynes' mother and is seeking ultimate power by annihilating the human race... On the opposing side are The Brimstone Society - a motley group of fellas who hunt and kill vampires. Led by Vladimir (Michael Madsen, sporting a look on his face that resembles a guy about to curl out a poo), Katarin (Michele Rodriguez) and hunky Sebastian (Matthew Davis) they plan to assassinate his baldness and along with a defecting Rayne - attempt to bring about the end of his reign, whilst all manner of creatures, magical powers and generally underwhelming digital effects envelope everyone in a chintzy chunk of tedium which will give your fast forward button finger a major workout.
Where to begin? Well, its pretty awful and there's no getting around it. No, 'hey, what do you expect? Its supposed to be junk' or 'give it a break you moron. Its based on a game' plea's will hide the fact that this is a turd of the highest order.Read more ›
the import Blu-ray is great quality and region free, uncut with all English extras too!!!
I liked it because it was exactly what I had expected, no more, no less. One should approach this sort of thing as one approaches comics. Never look at them? Then you probably won't like it.
You like DAWN? Or Purgatory? Or the movie "Van Helsing"? Then you're the sort of person who could appreciate this. Anyway, I did.
It's also meant for those who played the computer game. I never did, so in that respect I cannot judge it.
The acting, script and action sequences are very Zena Warrior Princess or the Mortal Kombat TV series style, so if you liked those, then you may like this. Van Helsing, this isn't -after all it was filmed on 1/7th the budget. That said it does a good turn at entertaining in the blood and schlock school of gore with plenty of squirty blood scenes and throat slitting [almost a decade before Game of Thrones]. The film has some very good set scenes, town squares, monasteries, dungeons and the like, whilst others look very staged. The script can also be somewhat limp and stilted in many places and there's even a gratuitous sex scene [with nipples] that seems quite irrelevant.
The disc itself has language options [actually 5.1 sound or subtitles -not languages], scene selection and 4 special features [Directors Commentary, CGI making off.., Dinner with Uwe Boll & storyboards]
If you're a fan of the games then this probably isn't for you.Read more ›
Director: Uwe Boll
Cast: Kristanna Loken, Michael Madsen, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Rodriguez, Billy Zane, Michael Paré, Udo Kier, Matt Davis, Will Sanderson, Meat Loaf
Production: Germany/US 2005
Taking place in 18th century Romania, the film centers on Rayne (Kristanna Loken) who is half-human and half-vampire, conceived when vampire King Kagan (Ben Kingsley) raped her mother.
At the beginning Rayne is kept as a circus attraction which draws the attention of Sebastian (Matthew Davis), Vladimir (Michael Madsen), and Katarin (Michelle Rodriguez), members of the Brimstone Society (a group of Buffy-like vampire slayers) who plan to use her to kill Kagan. Kagan himself also hunts Rayne for an amulet in her possession. She manages to escape from the circus before either of them arrive.
The three slayers do manage to catch up with Rayne and take her to their headquarters to convince her to fight with them. She accepts and seeks an audience with Kagan by using the amulet. She is captured but her slayer friends intervene.
Yes, I really liked BLOODRAYNE. Sue me!
While the story certainly is not an Oscar winner, but what to expect from a movie based on a video game?
I don't usually care much for Uwe Boll movies, but I did enjoy BLOODRAYNE. His direction of BLOODRAYNE relies much on action scenes and gory CGI effects to cover up what the script lacks. The splatter effects are - for CGI - pretty well done. Splatter fans should have a ball.
The cast does the best with what the script allows - there really isn't that much oportunity to excel.
I always liked Kristanna Loken and if you are a fan of hers you will enjoy the movie.Read more ›

Boll is a REALLY bad director, but visually it has some interesting points in its favour. Expect the worst and you might yet get something out of it.Published 4 months ago by JohnDrake67
