Movie Review by Movie Addict
December 8th, 2008

I want to drink your blood, Mr. Bond!

The directing/writing team of Jonathan Frakes and Marco Schnabel are back for another movie in the series.

They open with a James Bond tribute. Our little nerd (Noah Wylie) has certainly come a long way. He is no longer a nerd, and has developed an amazing capability with a sword as displayed in a fight with an ex-KGB agent (Dikran Tulaine), who wants to restore Russia to its former glory.

His plan is to restore none other than Dracula, who will lead an army of vampires. With the success of "True Blood" and Twilight, a vampire story is expected, and it really made things exciting. Our villain has the body of Vlad the Impaler, and now all he needs in the chalice made out of the 30 pieces of silver given to Judas (The first I have heard of that!) But, Flynn Carsen (Wylie) is burned out. It is up to Jane Curtin, in a much meatier role, to get him started. But it is a dream sequence with Croation Stana Katic (Quantum of Solace) that gets him moving. What? No English heroine? Not appropriate in a movie involving vampires, you see.

With vampires, the movie is a bit more exciting and the special effects are ramped up. It is set in new Orleans and that is always a plus for the atmosphere and the music.

Oscar nominee Bruce Davison (Longtime Companion, Short Cuts) gives an impressive performance.

We get the expected ending, with a tribute to 30 Days of Night, and are left wondering if this franchise has burned itself out, or if we will see our hero again two years from now.

This one sounds pretty amusing. Never heard of this series before.

Just a Noah Wylie ripoff of Indiana Jones (and several other films) on TNT. This one premiered last night. True Blood is over for the season and I really don't like too much football, so this was it.

I miss True Blood. Can't wait for the next season. Ofcourse, just about anything that Alan Ball does is great really. American Beauty, Six Feet Under, etc. have been quite worthy of all the critical acclaim.
