Today's review is on a home viewing of...
Against the Dark 2009 "R" 94 minutes
- Steven Seagal, Tanoai Reed, Jenna Harrison, Danny Midwinter, Emma Catherwood, Stephen Hagan, Daniel Percival, Skye Bennett, Linden Ashby, Keith David
- Action Thrillers, Action Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Vampires, Action & Adventure
- After vampires overrun planet Earth, it's up to a special ops squad leader to stamp out the bloodsuckers and save humanity. But for those who've survived and taken refuge in an abandoned hospital, hope is running out -- along with food and supplies.
- My Grade
- "C" for content
- "D" for Acting
- "No" for will I watch this again
- All I've got to say is I should have known better. While Steven Seagal was fine for his usual kick-butt martial arts, he has not aged well. The older, paunchy "savior" was found lacking with few spoken lines and heavy reliance on special effects tricks.
- While keywords such as "virus," "vampires," "horror," and "action" drew me to watch. The only interesting part was the marriage of zombie eat flesh and behaviors, and the blood sucking vampire nature of the virus's mutation.
- Say "pass" on this one unless your into martial arts and sword play for its own sake. It even gives "B" movies a bad rap.
