Mini-Movie Review: 30 Days of Night

Haven’t done a movie review for awhile, so what the heck, have at ye.

30 Days of Night

Overall I rather enjoyed this film, although I was so wound up from all the slaughtering that I trembled through most of the movie. In case you didn’t get the hint, there’s a lot of blood. Pretty much a town full, really…

Excellent heroes carry the movie, but you also get to see a couple instances of fruitless cowardice (I’ll be blunt: it didn’t help them live longer.) The plot has several gaps:

Spoilers
What’s the background of the Vampire Mafia? Who’s the little girl vampire? Why does the lead vampire not have weird creepy slanted eyes like all of the others? Why weren’t the vampires actually removing the victims’ heads like the leader instructed at one point, so that they wouldn’t turn?

Be warned: the ending made me cry. I’ll forgive it, as long as I don’t have nightmares tonight.

If you like horror vampires and you don’t mind lots of violence, not a bad movie. For those of us more easily shocked, I recommend a movie buddy (there’s no way I’d watch this by myself).

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

PS: Josh Hartnett is totally turning into Tommy Lee Jones.
