Based on the game
of a same name, BloodRayne
is the third video game movie by Uwe Boll, released in 2005, starring Kristanna Loken
, Michelle Rodriguez
, Michael Madsen
, and Ben Kingsley
The film centers around the Dhampyr
Rayne seeking to bring down her vampire father, Kagan. Instead of centering around killing Nazis, the first film is set around the Middle Ages and features a more laid back Rayne compared to her video game counterpart. But afterall, Uwe Boll made this film and his faithfulness to source material has always been lacking.Bloodrayne
pretty much became the first franchise of films by Uwe Boll, as there are two sequels, BloodRayne II: Deliverance
and BloodRayne: The Third Reich
, and a fourth film is in development, rumored to be set in modern times.
This film contains the examples of:
- Attempted Rape: Rayne is almost raped by the one of the circus workers, but during the quarrel some blood is drawn and her powers are awakened.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Rayne's signature weapons, which are inexplicably replaced with swords in the third film.
- Coitus Ensues: There's a sex scene between Rayne and Sebastian, with no build up beforehand. The third film also features Rayne having sex with Nathaniel for no legitimate reason... in the back of a truck of a prisoner transport.
- Dual Wielding: Rayne wields two blades, just like in the games.
- Evil Is Hammy: Meat Loaf as Leonid.
- Fortune Teller: Rayne finds out about her Chosen One status when she meets one after she breaks free from the circus.
- Our Vampires Are Different: For one thing, plain; ordinary water acts like Hollywood Acid on them.
- Plot Coupon: Rayne and Kagan are looking for the holy (unholy?) body parts of an ancient vampire, that take away their weaknesses.
- Romance on the Set: Apparently Kristanna Loken and Michelle Rodriguez dated for bit during filming.
- Sad Times Montage: In the last 5 minutes, after Rayne kills Kagan and sits on the throne, the viewer is treated to about 3-4 minutes of slow motion shots of many of the gory kills in the film. But it seems more like a special effects montage showcasing the over-the-top gore effects and the fight choreography.
- Shout-Out (may be a Whole Plot Reference): To those Castle Vania games where one must collect Dracula's body parts.
- Sword Fight: Plenty of it , even the climactic action scene is one.
- Weakened by the Light: Leonid is destroyed by sunlight.
