After crap like Twilight, New Moon, Vampire Diaries and True Blood this film was a welcome addition to the Vampire lore. It adds nothing new but at least returns the Vamps back to bad-asses!

Saw it Sunday morning. Pretty good flick. I felt like they might have been a touch too heavy-handed with some of the allegory/symbolism, but it still works. Add some decent creature FX and a lot more gore than I was expecting and overall it's pretty enjoyable, though I dunno if it'll find its' way onto my DVD shelf. My only gripe would be those annoying lens filters they use to simulate nighttime. I'm pretty sure it was a deliberate stylistic choice (to better contrast the bleak and lifeless "Nighttime/Vampire World" with the warm and naturally-lit "Daytime/Human World"), but it felt a little bit too over-the-top. Almost started looking like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
Anyway, it's a lot "deeper" film than it might look to be at first glance. Definitely uses the Vampires to symbolize a lot of different things about society, but not quite to the point where it gets in the way of the story. Sam Neill does a good job with the "bad guy" and Willem Dafoe is always fun to watch. Even Ethan Hawke (who I don't normally much care for) was decent as the main character.

I saw it on Saturday as well, I dug it.
I never understood why the Vampires in Blade were trying to take over the world because, well, s*** like this would happen.
I liked it better than the Underworld films, although no one in Daybreakers are as hot as the chick from Underworld.
It didn't seem rushed to me, I liked the visual effects, and Willem Dafoe is always fun.

This is actually incorrect.
I watched it tonight on DVD. Great film. A unique take on the vampire lore, plot was good, as were the effects and acting.
I watched some of the special features and it was finished in early 2009, released at the Toronto Film Festival in late 2009.

Great setup and then it turns into an ultra bloody Van Helsing halfway through. I mostly like Vampire stories only if it involves teen angst though. LOL.
