Vampiress Review: "Guardians of the Night"

The Gist: A young courier gets caught up in the world of the supernatural when he rescues a young girl from assassins unknowing to him that she is underworld royalty and the ones after her are vampires.

Female Vampire Factor: The vampire princess in this film is Dana (Lyubov Aksyonova)
Her blood mixed with the main antagonists apparently will result in Earth forever being dark which of course means vampires never having to hide which of course is a bad thing.

The other female vampire of the film is the sister of the main antagonist who's name is "Stefa" (Sabina Akhmedova)
She acts as a henchman in the film and mostly is seen in fight scenes.  She unfortunately gets to see the sun halfway through the film so don't get attached.

Honorable mention goes to hot snake lady Li Ven (Anastasiya Tsoy)
 She runs a massage parlor and ends up helping the main protagonist "Pasha" both understand and live up to his destiny as Dana's savior.

Final Opinion: From a Vampire Beauty standpoint it gets a 3 out of 5.  Much more an action film than anything else so there really isn't any actual vampirism outside of the one scene towards the end where Dana bites Pasha.  With that being said I really liked this film.  I'm not really a fan of the "detective action movies with vampires" genre but something about this I really did like. Maybe it's the fact that it's not as visually dark as most films in this genre that made it much better.  Basically it was a cross between Vampires: The Turning and Breed
but much more enjoyable than Breed was overall.  This definitely has high re-watchability.
