Daybreakers

In 2019, The Most Precious Natural Resource... Is Us.


Daybreakers
Set ten years into the future, most of the population has been infected and become vampires. They prey on the few remaining humans, or buy blood to satiate themselves. One of the top scientist at the blood supply company gets involved with the human underground, who are fighting for the survival of their species. One of them has developed a cheap antidote for the problem, but naturally the blood supply company does not want this to become available as it will destroy their business. This sets the stage for the hunting and killing of the humans and vampires, as the two sides embark on an epic battle to determine the dominant species once and for all.

C. Fuchs quote iconClever in its premise and a few details but not doing enough with them to make us care, Daybreakers is bled dry of fun or excitement long before the bloodletting truly sets in.

Tomatometer quote iconThough it arrives during an unfortunate glut of vampire movies, Daybreakers offers enough dark sci-fi thrills -- and enough of a unique twist on the genre -- to satisfy filmgoers.
