Daybreakers Movie Review

This movie had so much potential that it truly hurt to see it fall flat. I blame it completely on the inexperience of the writers/directors (the Spierig Brothers) who apparently learned nothing from the success of movies like 28 Days Later and I Am Legend. These movies were able to take a supernatural theme that in the 80's would have been just plain cheesy and modernize into a believable dark masterpiece rooted in science.

Spoiler Alert: I gave up on the movie after about 10 minutes when they showed a scene of Ethan Hawke's character looking into a mirror and the only thing you saw was a shirt and tie moving around with out the face. The whole concept that Vampires can't be seen in mirrors is so lame.
