Vampire vs. the Bronx offers enough kid-friendly thrills and laughs to entertain and introduce newcomers to the horror genre, while also offering a socially conscious exploration of gentrification we haven't seen in the genre before.
Originality is missing from the movie, but it has plenty of great jokes and a whole lot of people you enjoy hanging out with. When a horror-comedy is as agile, charming, and funny as this, everybody wins.
Serviceably entertaining little movie, but it's very lightweight, from the lack of character depth to the tame vampire violence (this is clearly targeting teens). There are worse ways to spend an hour and a half, but if you're looking for the next Attack the Block, this comes up a bit short.
This was really poorly executed, and the script felt like it was written by a robot. Gentrifying vampires come to the Bronx and they need to be stopped! I don’t dislike the concept at all, but vampires are so over saturated: all ideas explored here have been explored in many other films ad nauseum. And the vampires were such poor antagonists: they essentially stood around while a bunch of 10 year olds made quick work of them, and didn’t anticipate any use of your classical vampire weapons.
Wrapping social issues in other concepts is a really successful in many cases, but movies like this are so lazy so as to drown those issues in a sea of irrelevance. Another dud from Netflix throwing money at the wall hoping something, anything will stick.
From the streaming service that gave us "Cuties" here we have "Vampires vs The bronx".
This movie have strong WHITE MAN BAD vibe.
ITs a Black vs White movie in 2020, but its NETFLIX so what can you expect.
If you can look past that it starts pretty good for a vampire movie.
But it slowly drops to a halt. Therese a flying scene in the end of the movie that's so bad that i had to re watch to see if i was dreaming.
I'm Glad I Cancelled Netflix almost a year ago.
