A love triangle with fangs but no bite, the German import "We Are the Night" is mostly infatuated with its own stylish excesses.

Little White Lies

an odd - and therefore interesting - blend of genetic elitism, feminist emancipation and rave-culture hedonism, where oldworld bloodlines leave a trail imprinted in the postmodern age - all wrapped in a slickly stylish audiovisual package.

We Are the Night's primary interest seems to be wish fulfillment, but it's hard to tell at times exactly whose fantasies these are supposed to be.

Stylishly reinvents juvenile pulp with flashy pyrotechnics.

What Culture

It's stylishly constructed and a better feminist vampire yarn than Twilight, but still problematic in itself.

Brian Orndorf

Consumed with arranging a pretty picture than securing a ripe female-slanted take on seductive acts of evil and decadence. It's a fireworks display, not a meaty reinvention of a rusty genre.

Village Voice

Gansel compensates for the story's lack of emotional heft with rousing chase scenes and impressive, near-poetic CGI set pieces, and works in a sly suggestion that vampirism is the ultimate expression of consumerist indulgence.

Scott Weinberg

A slick, stylish (sometimes silly) vampire import. (Avoid the English dub version!)

Brent Simon

This feels like a Luc Besson genre knock-off in the best sense of that phrase -- a spunky, stylish mash-up of vampire flick and police procedural, with just a dash of doomed romance. Demerits for the dubbing, though.

Vampirism is for posers in junior high. This new wave of vampire movies for females and pre-teens is at least. The best movie to emerge from this latest vampire… More

It is fast, action lasting one, with a great camera image and soundtrack but the ending was a bit rushed and could have lasted a little longer. It comes off as… More
