Review: 

I had totally forgotten that they'd made another one of these...until it magically appeared on the DVR - thanks, husband. You are the best at fulfilling all my "vampires fucking werewolves" needs.

Even though the film started with a brief "Previously on..." summary of the first four films, I had a difficult time following the threads of the plot. I had totally forgot that Theo James was in the last one - and fuck if I remember what he did there. Vampire things, I guess? Vampire gun things? I cannot tell if he is supposed to be a love interest for Selene or a son type figure? Both?

My favorite thing about Blood Wars - besides Theo James - were the Viking Vampires. The Viking Vampires were fucking badass. Don't get me wrong, I like the black, goth vampire thing...but sometimes, a white silky nightgown is more comfortable to eat people in.

So yeah, there'll be at least one more of these movies coming out. I predict they'll keep making them as long as Kate Beckinsale can squeeze into a leather catsuit.

"I have lived for a thousand years, and I may live a thousand more, or I may die tomorrow. But I no longer fear death, for I have known it once already." - Selene (Kate Beckinsale)
