Daybreakers is a film that’s synopsis sounds like a highly original take on the vampire mythos. However in viewing its quite clear that all this is regurgitated drivel from as many sources as possible. Daybreakers focuses on a world where vampires rule and humans are on the verge of extinction, as such so are the vampires due to a lack of food, so both humans and vampire are looking for alternative means of survival. Sounds original and fresh right? Wrong. This movie most notably steals from Blade (Human harvesting and a vampire cure anyone?) but takes whatever it can get from wherever it can get it. One of the reasons for viewing this film, was its cast, Willem Defoe, Sam Neil and Ethan Hawke all star, however you have to wonder if any of them read the script prior to signing on board. Defoe and Neil partially feel like they got paid a large amount, hammed it up and went home. In terms of plot this is predicable and contrived nonsense, worthy of cheap 90’s action movies that dream of having Arnie in their lead. This film really has no redeeming features, please do not watch this so called movie.
