This movie gets you from the opening club scene of vampire action. Yet another comic I hadn’t read before seeing or since. This was a fun film that had great action sequences. Wesley Snipes has fun with the title character and Stephen Dorff hams it up nicely. The vampire world created for this film is good and Donal Logue is funny as Dorff’s right hand man. Every action scene from beginning to end in this film is edited nicely and just pops off the screen. The following sequels may have brought this franchise to a lackluster conclusion, but this one could stand alone as a great action flick.
