Dylan Dog: Dead of Night Review

image from Amazon

Premise:
Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh) is a private eye in New Orleans, specializing in digging up dirt on cheating spouses with his sidekick, Marcus Deckler (Sam Huntington). Little does Marcus know that before Dylan was a private eye, he was a peacekeeper between all that goes bump in the night - vampires, zombies, werewolves, etc. That part of Dylan's life is dragged back up from the grave when he's forced to come out of retirement for one last case involving the murder of a wealthy importer.


Standouts:
Dire acting by most, Sam Huntington came off sounding like Shia Lebeouf only about ten times better, and some of the ideas implemented in the film were really great. Especially liked all of the twists in the plot, keeping things interesting.


My Highlights:
Each time you find out it wasn't a suspect, narrowing down who the actual bad guy is, as well as the scene from the body shop.


Overall Rating:
This movie is what it is. It's not for everyone. It's a modern day B-Movie with horror and comedy elements to it, and a ton of action and mystery. Some parts are terrible, but some parts are really enjoyable. I found myself enjoying it, and give it 3 3/4 *'s out of 5, or 7 1/2 *'s out of 10.


When You Should See It:
Only if you're a fan of B-movies. It's not a film that will cater to the mass audience. Don't go in with high expectations.
