Fresh off the success of their inventive take on the zombie genre, Undead masterminds Michael and Peter Spierig direct Ethan Hawke in an ambitious tale of a futuristic Earth populated entirely by vampires, and the efforts made by the creatures to ensure that their food supply doesn't run out as humankind is faced with extinction. This movie was a okay vampire film with good action scenes and lots and lots of blood.

I usually hate every vampire flick I watch but I enjoyed Daybreakers from start to finish

I'm surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did. That's not to say it doesn't have faults, just that it turned out much better than the premise and actually made vampires seem fresh again.

While this horror film presents a unique perspective on the vampire genre, the story itself is told in slow-moving fashion without much depth or nuance. Some of the performances border on campy, as do some of the effects, but there are some good action sequences and few poignant touches. All in all, however, a disappointment.

I was a bit disappointed in this movie. The concept was good, a former Vampire finds a cure to turn Vamps back into humans, but something about the movie just fell flat for me.

"Daybreakers" by Yojimbo

Vampirism has spread throughout humanity to the point where they vastly outnumber the normal humans who have been turned into livestock to replenish the rapidly diminishing stocks of blood. Daybreakers was a really nice surprise. In the seemingly endless parade of pointless vampire films it has a really fresh feel to it as it puts a different spin on the idea rather than rehashing the same old schtick. Ethan Hawke has made a career out of playing off beat, vulnerable anti-heroes and Sam Neill and Willem Dafoe bring their usual dominating presences to the screen which combined with some really nice production design and a smart script makes for a refreshingly different fang flick. My only reservation was with the open ended conclusion which made me think that the Spierig brothers were more...
