Slimy, eyeless, Alien-esque vampires at war with a clergy run society? It’s a hard sell to an audience used to seeing Twilight and True Blood vampires, even with Stephen Moyer appearing as the Priest’s brother. With an uninspired and too serious a script, Paul Bettany, as Priest, gives a quiet, stoic performance, having no chemistry with either the Priestess (Maggie Q) or Hicks the Sheriff (Cam Gigandet). Certainties are: the film is good enough for a feature showing on the SyFy channel, Bettany is sexy, Karl Urban as Black Hat is sexy, and superhero suits don’t come with padded bras.
