Topic: BloodRayne Sequels
I dunno about the rest of you folks but I did enjoy Uwe Boll's adaptation of BloodRayne, to some extent. The script did go against some sections of the game such as Kagen getting killed in the Medievil Times and the destruction of Brimstone. Despite the fact that Billy Zane side story never went anywhere, Ben Kingsly lounged about, Michael Madsen mumbled, and Michelle Rodriguez playing the same character she played in Resident Evil but with a sword....I enjoyed it as a slice of bloody fun.
But the film tanked (possibly due more to the fact of a distrubution mishap that cut the theater run down from 2,500 to less than 1,600 or so) and got only about $5 million I think at the box office. So, sequels to BloodRayne...still a little sketchy imo.
Though, I must question here Boll's thinking in setting a 2nd BloodRayne film in the Old West...that doesn't go along with the games and makes little sense imo for now. So, 2nd movie for me might be a skip cause I can't picture Canada as the old West and unless he shoots it in Spain or Italy, it will be a skip for me.
3rd film, finaly....WW2. I love Monster vs Nazi movies so I'll see this no doubt. But, Boll imo should cancel 2, make 3 #2 and then make the third film set in modern day...would please the fans..a little.
Though of course this all depends on money as the tax shelter Boll used to finance his films has apparently been changed by the German gov't so the old rules don't apply any more. So...if they get made...right now #2 is a skip but #3 is a see.
I think Boll has gotten a little better since House of the Dead and I am looking forward to see In the Name of the King a Dungeon Siege Tale (they could slash the title down on this one) and it looks decent.
Any other opinions?
