BloodRayne Reviews

  • It's time to start paying attention to the oeuvre of German director Uwe Boll. At this rate, he'll become the Ed Wood of this new movie century.

    Gregory Kirschling — Entertainment Weekly

  • The film might be the first of its kind: something to bring Maxim subscribers, video gamers, and loyal Logo viewers together.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • After Rayne breaks out of the circus, it's a simple story, really, about a mixed-up girl who wants to slay her father.

    Carla Blumenkranz — Village Voice

  • How fitting that director Uwe Boll (House of the Dead) would choose a vampire flick as his latest project - the man has a career that, despite the horror he continually inflicts on innocent moviegoers, simply will not die.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • There's nothing certain in life except death, taxes and ... that movies based on video games are going to stink. Cue BloodRayne.

    Tom Maurstad — Dallas Morning News

  • Just when you thought camp was dead, along comes this bizarre cross between a Tarantino knockoff and a Hammer horror film.

    Andrea Gronvall — Chicago Reader

  • Pic lurches from incident to incident at a graceless plodding place, offering little in the way of genuine excitement -- the swordfights often are confusingly cut and choreographed -- and only minimal amounts of guilty-pleasure titillation.

    Joe Leydon — Variety

  • Halfway through, the guys put Rayne through a training sequence, even though we've just seen her kick butt for 45 minutes, then there's a long, talky stretch that is woefully short of impaling - perhaps suggesting that the movie's financing was dwindling.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Who is Uwe Boll and why does he hate moviegoers so? The German hack, the one-man Blitzkrieg of Bad, is the worst filmmaker in the movies today.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Most of the budget seems to have been spent on the cast, with apparently little left over for sets or costumes.

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • At the rate Boll's improving, he'll achieve a film worthy of a thumbs up rating sometime late next decade.

    Garth Franklin — Dark Horizons

  • The fight scenes are the worst kind of editing-room cheating, meant to cover for actors who haven't been trained to wield anything more intimidating than a cell phone.

    Rob Gonsalves —

  • Turgid drama and incompetently staged action sequences...

    Scott Tobias — AV Club

  • Only as bad as ordinary bad films and not as bad as getting your eyelid caught on a nail.

    Walter Chaw — Film Freak Central

  • This is a movie that begs you not to watch it.

    David Cornelius —

  • BloodRayne is quite cheesy -- the costumes resemble something out of the cosplay closet, and the dialogue is often appalling.

    Staci Layne Wilson —

  • So how does a filmmaker bounce back from an almost universally reviled action-horror mistake? Well, if your name is Uwe Boll, you don't.

    Steve Newton — Georgia Straight

  • All in all, not as bad as you'd suspect and certainly serviceable for all who love the bloody, low-budget vamping gone wild.

    JoBlo — JoBlo's Movie Emporium

  • The supporting cast is mind-melting: Michael Madsen is as out of place in this Medieval milieu as Meat Loaf in a hoop skirt, and Meat Loaf is just out of place.

    John Beifuss — Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

  • It's as if Boll brought together the best team of talent he could possibly secure on short notice and then told them all to suck. And they do!
