PostSubject: Daybreakers   Fri Jan 29, 2010 5:31 pm

I don't want to write a long, thorough, well-thought out review on this movie. I've only seen it once so it'd be hard for me to do that. I'm just curious to hear what everyone else thought about it. I loved the storyline. Most of you would think that I wouldn't since I like Twilight, but I actually really did like the whole realistic vampires thing. Daybreakers was good but extremely, extremely gory. Gory movies like 300 normally
don't bother me but this one was seriously nauseating. That being said,
the storyline was good and the movie was entertaining. I've cleaned up poop and pee and other bodily excretions before and never been as grossed out as I was during this movie though. Most of the time I'm able to think "this isn't real." That failed me during this movie and I had to literally stare at my date for 2/3 of Daybreakers.

It's not even the vampires who didn't get enough human blood that turned into this:

that grossed me out really. There's just literally blood everywhere and people's bodies explode graphically and burn to death in a graphic matter.

The message was good and vampires are awesome, but I seriously don't see the point of all that gore. I know that I sound like a grandparent, but see the movie for yourself and then tell me what you think.

Lol. Definitely a wait-for-DVD movie. I don't know about gore. Never really bothers me.

I have yet to see it, but I keep hearing good things about it.

You do? Someone over on TG said that they kept hearing that it was horrible. I know one thing for sure..this is one movie I would NOT want to see on blu-ray. Sorry, Steve, I'm not coming over for that one

I've been waiting for them to make a REAL vampire movie.

Can't wait.

I've been wanting to go to this. Moviebob said it was awesome. Really one of the only reviewers i ever pay attention to. Since i finally saw Avatar last night, I'll work harder on seeing Daybreakers.

this movie didn't bother me all that much. the girl I took to go see this movie was horribly terrified after seeing the first few scenes I had to go back to watch it myself because I liked the storyline. *ended up having to see the lovely bones with her, which I can say was quite good. I swear i've seen that dead girl somewhere in another movie?*

its been a long time since a good vamp film came out. I think Underworld was the last good one I and in between them Van hellsing.

I saw this tonight. I enjoyed it. Nice pace, captivating. Enough suspense and action to keep me interested throughout.

it just hit me that no one discussed the sun being the cure. what was anyone's take on that aspect? truthfully I never thought that could ever have been thought up. nice twist if you ask me though.
