This was a rather weirdly laid out movie. Transitions and change of scenes were displayed out of order, and gave the film a strange disjointed feeling. This is probably the first Jason Statham movie that I haven't really enjoyed. It has the same fighting style that we have come to love, but the characters lacked credibility. None of the characters would have received more than 10 minutes of screentime (except for Jason Statham and Michael Angarano), so the film was filled with fleeting minor characters, and many irrelevant plot points.

While I did laugh at the beginning when Statham's character Nick was listing his "qualifications", and I enjoyed the "he can kill with any common object" theme, the script felt lazy and fell flat. There was no real plot, no real danger, and most exciting plot points were resolved without the promised conflict. I had nearly watched the entire film before I realised that I had no idea what the point of the movie was. I had no idea of the end goal, no idea whether this was film about gambling, or a film about organised crime.

The final battle was short, anticlimactic, and disappointing. This film did not live up to my expectations for a Jason Statham film. I hope he does not become the new Nicolas Cage.

Product reviews for listing 1620: Perfect Creature
Directed by Glenn Standring

Product image for Perfect CreatureSet during the 1960s in an alternate New Zealand known as Nuovo Zelandia, PERFECT CREATURE imagines a world where vampires and humans peacefully co-exist, with the Vampires, known as The Brotherhood, the next step in human evolution.

This delicate balance looks to be destroyed when an influenza epidemic begins to sweep the human population and one vampire turns to preying on humans. The church sends out Silus to catch the renegade vampire, Edgar. Silus joins forces with a human police captain, and discovers that Edgar harbors dark secrets.
