Synopsis:
The year is 2019. A mysterious plague has swept over the earth, transforming the majority of the world's population into vampires. Humans are now an endangered, second-class species - hunted to the brink of extinction and then farmed to feed the vampires' need for blood. The remaining humans are now in hiding and as supplies run low, the terrifying consequences of vampire starvation are becoming more apparent - the normally civilised vampire population will turn into literal blood sucking monsters if a blood substitute is not found.

A clever twist on the vampire genre. - Daybreakers review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
05/09/2010

Daybreakers takes the usual premise of vampire's as a outcast group and turns it on its head. In this film vampires have assumed the role of the worlds major civilisation. After a virus spreads over the globe most of the population is now vampire leaving humans as an endangered species. Now with a world shortage of blood vampires are becoming ill and regressing into an aggressive bat like creature called 'subsiders'. And the pressure is on for a vampire scientist called Edward Dalton, an employee of the Bromley Marks corporation, who is working to form a stable synthetic blood substitute. The Bromley Marks corporation harvests blood from humans on an industrial scale, and when Dalton discovers Bromley's plan that synthetic blood will used as a new product line rather than freedom for the human race he begins to question his own morals. This is a great movie and a clever twist on the vampire genre. The film shows a future in which vampires have essentially taken over the role of the human race, they work, socialise and play all under the cover of darkness. The only thing that lets the Daybreakers down is a lack of scares, it's more a gory thriller than an outright horror movie. Overall, it a good movie with a well thought out storyline and a must see for vampire fans.

The acting was brilliant in a story line that shouldn't be... definately worth a watched.. hoped for it to be a little longer with a few more action scenes... but hopefully the 2nd one will be a 5*

Wooden and Predictable - Daybreakers review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
07/12/2010

Dull, dull, dull. Imagine the worst bits of The Matrix combined with The Hunger. A future where vampires are the superior race and lord it over the humans who charge up their batteries. Also, reminded me a bit of that woeful drivel Equilibrium with Christian Bale

Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe are wasted in this quagmire of a film. Sam Neill struggles behind his vampire teeth and the overall relief I felt during the closing credits was the best thing about the film. Glad to be sending this one back.
