    There are all sorts of noteworthy people in this silly vampire epic, including acting greats Sir Ben Kingsley and Geraldine Chaplin, but the only artist this critic wants to heap praise upon is the regrettably unidentified Supervisor of Blood Splatter: Nice work, dude.
  2. The only thing left unsliced is the ham in BloodRayne, yet another video game adaptation by German genre specialist Uwe Boll and a movie with more fading - or faded - talent than an Italian basketball team.
  3. 33
    With minimal flare and maximal gore, Boll simply delivers the turgid drama and incompetently staged action sequences that have made him the unstoppable Big Boss of the gaming community.
  4. 25
    Why do moviegoers and gamers keep going to see video-game-based movies when neither group is ever happy with the results?
  5. While there's no fun in mediocrity, ludicrousness is another matter. Boll is the best at what he does, and what he does is make truly terrible films.

    All of the low ratings are very suspicious. I am flabbergasted and appalled that viewers standards and comprehension of brilliance have fallen to such low thresholds. This film puts even the classics like Maltese Falcon and Mr Smith Goes to Washington to shame. The cinematography, direction, acting, effects and philosophical meaning best every performance ever, from Humphrey Bogart to Christian Bale. After you see this movie, kill yourself, because you've already achieved the pinnacle of your life. From here on out, all that remains is a slippery precipice of failure. Expand

    Excellent film, very good plot and action! Everybody who says this film is crap is wrong

    It seems like Bloodrayne has just fizzled out. The games were good, but too seldom do games go to movies that turn out even half decent. This movie has once again demonstrated that games-to-movies just doesn't work most of the time. Forget Rayne, and forget vampires. Expand

    Huge fan of Bloodrayne 1 & 2 games. Didn't know who Uwe Boll was before this movie. This was literally the worst movie I've ever seen. PLEASE Boll - never make another movie. Expand

    This is without a doubt, one of the worst movies ever; though it competes mightily with Alone in the Dark. Bottom Line unless you are a hormonal male teen with repressed sexual or violent tendencies or a very lonely 30+ year old virgin, there are no redeeming qualities to this film, which makes it an amazing achievement in badness. Many films might have bad acting or bad directing, but only one has accomplished the complete awfulness that is BloodRayne. Bad Acting, Bad Directing, Bad Script, Bad Special Effects ... the badness just doesn't quit. When Uwe Boll reads this he can use my comments above on the marketing piece as: "... doesn Expand

    The best way to watch this movie is to be doing something else while watching, because odds are you'll have more fun doing whatever else you can think of than watching this sack of homogenized **** In fact, just do anything else. Please. I don't know what else to say other than "why, Ben Kingsley, why?" Expand

    This week's "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is yet another film adaptation of a popular videogame. Everything you've heard about the genre is true: there are a lot of terrible movies, and a lot of Uwe Boll movies. (And those categories are definitely not mutually exclusive.) We look at the "best" and worst examples of games-turned-movies.

    While it's unlikely that this week's "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" will merit consideration on our list, here are the ten movies it would have to beat out to be considered the top vampire film since 1980. We've added five additional vampire movies from the other end of the quality spectrum, but there aren't any "Twilight" films among them ... yet.
