Maybe everyone else saw this in the theaters, but I just got this from Netflix and loved it! I thought it would be kinda lame and cliche with some big acting names thrown in it, but it really wasn't at all! The story was marvelous. I thought it had great action scenes, but written well too. I wanted to write down several quotes. I loved this: "Eternity sounds awfully lonely. Unless perhaps I had someone to share it with. Someone I loved." (something to that affect) There's some pretty good laughs in it too. It just makes you feel good.

The director says this is a fairy-tale for grown ups, but there wasn't anything too "adult" in it. Lots of killing actually, but they leave out the sound effects and most of the gore. One guy even has bright blue blood instead.

I'm curious to see if other normal people liked this too, or if I'm just turning into a fantasy-lover. (darn those vampire books)

i liked this movie, but i did thik it was kind of cheesy, and probably not something we'd watch again. it's one of those movies that you have to be in the right mood for. however, it was entertaining, and dan and i got a kick out of it..especially the brothers.

Yeah, I think I was in the mood for this one. The brothers were the best! SO funny.

Oh and that line is "everlasting life" not "eternity". Oh well, same diff.
