Dylan Dog Dead of Night - movie review

based on Tiziano Sclavi's graphic novel


If you are a fan of the graphic novel, you'll probably hate this film and say it has not done justice to the real Dylan Dog. There is no Grocho nor Bloch and London. But if you are a fan of Brandon Routh..you'll just want to see it because..well, Brandon is in it. Possibly, not enough moments with his shirt off (I must confess). But none the less, he plays the very cool paranormal detective on the dark side of New Orleans who just doesn't have any luck with the ladies.


I must say I thought Sam Huntington stole much of the movie as Dylan's sidekick, Marcus. Sam's character has to embrace the zombie in him once he's been taken by the bad thing out there that Dylan has to take care of.



Huntington gives a fun and endearing performance as the zombie friend. Believe me, I've never seen a zombie quite like Sam's.

Perhaps so BAD of a movie that its good!


Also Taye Diggs is a pretty cool Vampire, too.


If you enjoy shows like Buffy the Vampire slayer, well..this might be right up your alley. Otherwise, you just might want to avoid it. I don't think it was a rotten movie. It just isn't for the die hard fans of Dylan Dog. But on the other hand, well...Brandon Routh is taking some risks lately, and I'm enjoying them.


STORYLINE: The adventures of supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.

credits!

Gah, what else is that guy in? He looks so familiar, but I can't place my finger on it. I know I've seen him in something... some TV show or movie... hmmm.

I've never heard of the graphic novel, but the screen version looks fantastic. I'd definitely love to see it.

To the commenter above, I think he played Superman in the most recent Superman film. Or am I wrong? :/

BTW...I sent you an e-mail, Holly! :)

Routh is or the new Superman. He was so clever and fun in Scott Pilgrim too.
