Summary: James Woods kick vampire butt in the desert.
While it's great fun to watch James Woods say "Padre" and kick priests around, the joke gets a little old after repititions. If only they could have written some more varied dialogue into the screenplay, it would have been a lot better. The plot is fairly straightforward, with the exception being one doesn't usually see the Vatican hiring mercenaries, at least, not since Hudson Hawk. One of the pudgier Baldwin brothers co-stars, but he's not very convincing and has some really absurd lines as well... there's 12 or 13 of these Baldwin guys, right? The gore was quite overdone as well, so if that bothers you, then you'd better give this a pass, as this is easily the goriest film I've seen this year.

Summary: Flaccid vampire action flick
OK, so James Woods goes and tries to kill the bad guy from Karate Kid 3. With the fat Baldwin brother, the dead chick from Twin Peaks, and a guy who gets turned into a zombie in Blade. There isn't really a good reason to see this - if you want to see vampires getting beat up, go watch Blade instead. If you want to watch actors stumbling their way through a ridiculous script, then Vampires might be right up your alley.
