Movie Review: Daybreakers (2010)

Daybreakers
Released 2010
98 mins.

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Claudia Karvan

Synopsis: Welcome to America ten years after a plague turned most of the world’s population into vampires and humans are an endangered species. Don’t worry, your local Starbucks is still in business and you can get a little blood in your coffee along with the espresso triple-shot. Plus you can smoke...constantly. 

Now a critical blood shortage (due to the over-eager hunting of humans) threatens to de-volve the undead population into mindless bat-monsters. Ethan Hawke plays a vampire with a conscience and Willem Dafoe offers some comedy relief.

Mike Tells It Straight: Vampires go corporate! If you want to wash the taste of the last tweeny-debacle Twilight installment off your eyeballs then here’s your chance to see a vampire flick with some over-the-top gore. Don’t get your hopes up on a memorable plot as this movie is still just a B+
