[ Movie Page: Daybreakers (2009) ]


In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.

Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) is out for a cure to the plague that has turned most of mankind into vampires in Daybreakers. I feel like this was the Blade 2 plot that never caught on but still turned out into a good vampire movie. Daybreakers has strong bloody violent scenes, language and brief nudity.

I liked the city visuals and the vampire costumes that featured the devolving vampires. Some of the scenes were very slow and took away from the intense scenes. I would not say that Daybreakers is great but the story is well worth watching.
