    ★★★

    I fall in & out of “like” with this movie. I think it’s the screenplay, a start-stop bore of a story albeit one with punchy dialogue, the friction of which contributes to it being such a strange, conflicted beast. The rhythms are all off.

    BUT.

    There’s still a lot of serious artfulness and a committed spirit to the film. There’s really nothing else like it - a quasi-musical cartoon gangster art experiment using Disney’s big wallet and Madonna at her most Madonna-iest.

    ★★½

    It’s got a lot of great elements, and entertains at the very least, but doesn’t maximize the potential of anything within it.

    Based on a joke that no one wanted to see ("What if Bloodrayne was fat?") comes another amateur-hour Uwe Boll film. It's sub-Friedberg & Seltzer parody, complete with black face and a sympathetic Hitler (played by Boll himself). You've been warned...
