I have not see the previous movies so I did not know what to expect from this film, I guess it was alright and I was entertained while I was watching the film. My boyfriend is a fan of these movies so he was in heaven and I can see why he likes it, i think the film has a very particular audience that includes video gamers because the film kind of looks and feels like a video game. We saw the movie in 3D and I thought it was pretty good but it took me a while to get used to the constant darkness because the film is shot with blue filter and it was hard for me to make out who is who and what is going on in the beginning of the film. I think Kate Beckinsale looked great in the film but i am not sure if she is a believable vampire, she does not look dangerous at all but she does look good in that tiny leather suite. Overall, i think the film had great CGI and actions scenes and it is worth the price of the movie ticket.
