Daybreakers (2009) Review:

The strength of this movie lies in its great science-fiction backbone story. It is set in a very elaborated world on which most of the population is a vampire. One can see that there were a lot of thoughts put in creating a complex universe, and it is a real pleasure to discover all the little things that make it.

The cast is superb, featuring three of the biggest modern horror-fantastic actors, namely Ethan Hawke (Sinister, Gattaca), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, American Psycho, Existenz) and the huge Sam Neill (In the Mouth of Madness, Jurassic Park, Event Horizon).

Other than that, I found the story a little slow and the action and horror scenes too scarce. Daybreakers may really disappoint hardcore horror fans like me, but overall this was a great movie, a lot deeper and more meaningful than most other vampire movies.
