I don’t think that I posted this, so here goes. I do so not because I expect the film to be that good–I don’t–but because I dig the genre. That being said, how is it that Selene was able to be captured by humans? If you take a look at the trailer, she makes short work of seven or eight armed men, so I am not quite getting it.
My thing is I don’t necessarily think that the “good guys” have to always win–in fact, sometimes things are more interesting when they don’t–but at least be consistent.
It’s also in 3D, which leads me to the conclusion that Sony/Screen Gems expect it to make its money quickly, before people realize that it will probably be a very mundane film.
And another thing: What is it with these vampires and guns? Really? Blessed (pardon the pun) with enhanced strength and speed, they still somehow feel the need to arm themselves? I get that the Underworld films are essentially The Matrix with vampires and werewolves, but even the lame vamps of Twilight (or so I hear) don’t feel the need to arm themselves.
