A movie starring Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill and Ethan Hawke should be so much better than this. It's not that Daybreakers was bad. It's an enjoyable enough film. It's just not what you might expect based on the amount of talent on set. If you're sick of friendly sparkly vampires and looking for something with some bite, this is one worth getting.
Oh Paul Bettany, why have you not yet learned how to pick roles? Bettany was great in 'The DaVinci Code,' 'A Beautiful Mind,' and 'Master and Commander,' but he still manages to stumble into films that are far beneath his stature. 'Legion' is one of those. It's like 'Underworld,' but without all the good.
History of the World Part 1
If the new stuff doesn't interest you, consider a classic. 'History of the World Part 1' is one of the finest films to come from director Mel Brooks. Dom DeLuise, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Cloris Leachman, Sid Ceaser and a handful of other great comedic actors all make an appearance. If you haven't seen 'History of the World Part 1' and you enjoy comedies, you owe it to yourself.
