    What a horrible movie

    The awful concept of Leage Of Extrodinary Gentlemen

    A generic hero in black with a name stolen from 500 better works

    Clothes that miraculously don't get dirty in poopy 1800's streets

    Bad vampire logic

    Bad vampire transformation

    35 seconds of existentialism

    Hacked romanian vampire accents

    Unexplained vampire powers

    The always amusing "bullet hits target, sends target flying" physics impossibility


    So to sum it up, someone read the Hellsing manga and pooped out a complete crap movie

    T has told me not to see it a hundred times. Says she fell asleep during it. I haven't seen it. Don't really plan to.

    It was a bit mainstream and heesy, but if you read any of the comic works, you know that thats actually the way it's written.

    ok you're getting mad over a movie that was made in Hollywood. not only that, but you're getting mad over some "vampire accent, transformation, and logic."

    correct me if i'm wrong, but who's to say you're right? who really knows squat about a vampire?

    i know it seems like i'm saying that you don't know what you're talking about, but who really does know anything about vampires?

    All vampire mythos is decended from the original archetype, changing it up is taking away it's definition as vampiric. Name something, and give it it's opposites definition. It ceases to reflect it's name. Even standards based on comman acceptance are adequate.

    What is that, which is not what it is, but is something else entirely? Nothing

    Imagine a vampire that can walk during the sunlinght, but decomposes slowly, feeds on living tissue, doesn't care about silver or chistian artifacts, and can only be destroyed by total fragmentation.

    Is that a vampire?

    It is similar in ways, but not in others.

    Yeah,.. I know..

    But, that's what I liked about it. Those chicks switching back and forth from winged vamp types.. to hotties, then hotties with vamp features, was kinda hot.

    Ya know .. when one of those gals went flying by, I think I saw her cooter ..

    But it could have been the lighting. :p:

    LOL.. almost snorted my tea.. is it ok to make yourself laugh? It is truely divine to be simple minded. OK, I didn't really think I saw her cooter.. but I'm trying to live up to the male stereotypical image here, so work with me.

    The girls were pretty hot.. irregaurdless
