    Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter

    ★★★

    Fun mid 70s Hammer Production. It ultimately doesn’t live up to the swashbuckling vampire killer movie I wanted, but there’s lots of good stuff in it. Caroline Munro is pretty great as Carla. Kronos travels around with a hunchback partner named Professor Grost. It plays around with the vampire genre and some of the rules. 

    Definitely worth a watch.

    Not great. Michelle Yeoh is awesome as usual, but it’s like the filmmakers didn’t think she could top line the movie without a bunch of guys in the supporting roles. And a very unnecessary romantic subplot. And Jackie Chan in a throw away cameo that has nothing to do with anything else in the movie. 

    This movie would have worked so much better if they had just filmed it as another Police Story movie but with Yeoh in the lead instead of Chan.

    Watched this with my son. We liked it. It’s a lot of setup for a second movie, but the action and fights were good. That’s what matters. And I liked how they used the characters.

    Saw this in the theater, did a rewatch last night. I get it, people hate this movie, but I still really enjoy it. It's cheesy and the graphics are WAY dated, but I think it's a lot of fun and I like the premise.
