July 20, 2002Queen of the Damned leaves us puzzled as to why the term 'damned' applies at all, when vampirism is depicted as so cool, fashion-savvy and glamorous.
February 09, 2006Rice's complex, sprawling novel is rendered virtually incomprehensible by a combination of lacklustre direction, risible dialogue and shoddy effects.
December 30, 2006Perhaps the sole reason to see this film is to pay final tribute to Aaliyah. Too bad it isn't a better movie.
August 07, 2008Aaliyah makes a brief but memorable posthumous appearance about an hour into the nearly incoherent proceedings, which are riddled with unintentional guffaws.
April 29, 2009Aaliyah is gorgeous, but that doesn't save the film's tedious pacing, and cheesy atmosphere in the end.
September 15, 2008It isn't great entertainment or camp, but pic sets its ambitions so low, it can't help partially delivering on them.
September 22, 2007Whatever life there is to the movie is what [Aaliyah] brings to it.
August 14, 2007The film is vampire roadkill.
January 21, 2003Screenwriters Scott Abbott and Michael Petroni have turned Rice's complex Akasha into a cartoon monster.

February 08, 2014It's mainly an excuse for director Michael Rymer to unleash his arsenal of flashy, MTV-type visuals and Moulin Rouge costume designer Angus Strathie to play dress-up.
