I'm a fan of the series but this isn't as good as the first two. It's really a stretched out version of the brief backstory seen in the first film so we know what happens and who lives and who dies. The picture is quite good, the grain is meant to be there, but the audio is awful - it started off at a good level then suddenly dipped to almost inaudible levels - my TV has a facility to enhance dialogue but it didn't manage on this so I resorted to turning the volume up high for the film to suddenly change levels again and boom out the music. I think they forgot to have a microphone on set when they filmed it.
What I thought was the strangest part of this film was that this supposedly (almost) invincible warrior (as demonstraed in the early and youthful hand to hand combat sequenses) was so easily and repeatedly caught by 'normal' guards. Also if she had been my daughter I would have probably done the same, one of quite the most annoying characters ever to be committed to celuloid. Bill Nighy was good as a vampire but must look back on this veritable fart of a movie with great regret and be thankful he still has a career in the future. The picture and sound were decent enough but I can think of far better movies to demo a system. If you bought this it's one for the car boot sale I reckon, but price it right as there will be lots to choose from.
Oh dear. In this new age of high definition technology how on earth can a recent film look this bad! I actually had to stop the disc and take it out of my ps3 to make sure it wasn't a normal dvd. If you're looking to show off your system to your mates then please don't show them this, they'll wonder what all the fuss is about. Show them Transformers, Apocalypto, Pans labyrinth, The Dark Knight, Wall-e or Starship Troopers. The film itself is ok but not as good as the first two, only buy if you're looking to complete the trilogy.
