Violence, blood and gore!
Now this is a vampire brawl!
I don't know why I haven't seen From Dusk till Dawn, yet it's so popular and even George Clooney is in it.
So basically two different types of characters. The bad guys and the good guys. And then there's basically even more badder guys. Which is the vampire and reptile things, and if I'm not mistaken one rat???
The first half of the movie got me wondering if this was really a vampire movie.
The entire story of the movie is just two things, going to Mexico and being stuck in a bar. Not much of a story when the whole movie is taken place a caravan and inside a bar so the entire entertainment of the movie relies on the vampires.
Oh...it's more Rated-R than I expected!
It seemed like they were building up to an amazing end but the ending was kind of melodramatic. The entire movie had so many unexpected deaths and unexpected vampires jumping out, so having the same thing again, it wasn't that suprising. Should have been one important powerful vampire boss to beat.
Just one thing I kept thinking...
before they found out that they were vampires they were all normal people. Waking talking and all, but suddenly they were relentless creatures and when you get bitten you also become relentless violent creatures! Why couldn't they walk, talk and think normal like all the other vampires in the beginning?
The make up effects was absolutely amazing but some of the effects wasn't good. They should have just kept to practical effect on everything since majority of the vampires was actually make up and costumes.
If I was them and after all that...I would have burned that entire place to the ground!
Overall this movie is gritty and violent. It's very much rated r so you can't watch with your family. The real truth is that the end is a let down.
"Dld they look like psychos? Is that what they looked like? They were vampires, psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't give a f*ck how crazy they are"
