Product Description

DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT is a new horror/comedy film based on one of the world's most popular comics (60 million copies worldwide). Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads "No Pulse? No Problem." Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.

At a time when it feels odd for a movie to not feature zombies or vampires, genre movies often need a little something extra in the tank to register. The firmly post-Whedon supernatural comedy Dylan Dog: Dead of Night doesn't exactly blaze new trails, but some appealing performances and a nicely off-kilter delivery help it glide over most of the well-trod areas. Based on the long-running comic series by Tiziano Sclavi (which also semi-inspired 1994's majestically loopy Dellamorte Dellamore), the story follows the character of Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh), an ex-paranormal investigator with a history of settling disputes between the warring paranormal factions roaming the streets of New Orleans. After a case involving a beautiful blonde (Anita Briem) reluctantly draws him back into the underworld, he discovers a plot by an upstart vampire (Taye Diggs) to rule and/or destroy the planet. Director Kevin Munroe, an animation veteran, brings a pleasantly cartoony sheen to the proceedings, maximizing his constrained budget to deliver an impressively diverse array of things that go bump in the night. (A scene involving a thrift shop catering exclusively to zombies is a gloppy highlight.) Throw in a winningly understated performance by Routh and a lulu of an extended cameo by a wolfed-out Peter Stormare, and the ingredients are there for a breezily enjoyable gore comedy. Ultimately, what makes Dylan Dog worth seeking out is the presence of Diggs, a fine actor too often suavely constrained. Here, as a double-dealing monster, he goes gloriously unhinged, creating a creature of the night that stands out among the current hordes of mopey cinematic nosferatus. More, please. --Andrew Wright

Not familiar with the comic, I found some background info on the comic on another Amazon review:
Like a James Bond of the occult--only not as suave or debonair--Dylan Dog manages to get himself in and out of trouble with finesse, while bedding a different lady with each adventure he embarks on. A self-styled "nightmare investigator," he takes on cases that normal PIs won't. Along with his assistant, Felix, a quip-spouting Groucho Marx lookalike, he tracks down some extremely dark persons (and nonpersons) for a somewhat modest fee.

Dylan Dog was created by writer Tiziano Sclavi in 1986. Originally published in Italy, the long-running series is set in London, where Dylan works as a supernatural investigator who (against type in a series like this) has a good working relationship with the police. Dylan is a former Scotland Yard investigator, and perhaps the reincarnation of the original Dylan Dog, who died in 1686.

Dylan Dog's mysteries have been published off and on over the past two decades, with Sclavi backing off and allowing others to interpret the character. The good-looking investigator has become a true star in Italy's comics publishing, as well as around the world.

This movie deviates from this description:
1) Dylan isn't a Casanova, he actually has some past that keeps him pushing women away
2) His sidekick looks nothing like Groucho and works for free vs. a fee. He does it more out a friendship for Dylan
3) No mention -- that I remember -- about his relation to Scotland Yard. His history and relationship to the undead/monsters is explained very differently in the movie.
4) No finesse in the movie...

The movie starts out great. A young girl ( Anita Briem, "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D" babe)is preparing supper for her and her dad. She is dancing in the kitchen, starting out with some good rock jams. She gets a clean plate out and sets it on the counter and then suddenly there is blood on the plate. It is dripping from the ceiling. She runs upstairs and her dad is dead. A werewolf jumps out the window...enter Dylan I. Dog (Brandon Routh), private investigator. He used to investigate weird undead things, a younger, hipper version of Kolchak, the Night Stalker. Dylan is old school. He uses snail mail. Deals with cash and checks, drives a VW Beetle (that backfires) and uses a film camera.

Dylan refuses the case until his friend Marcus (Sam Huntington) is killed. Now it has become personal. There are four werewolf clans. They operate in New Orleans like the mafia. The vampires are out to get Dylan and don't worry too much about Marcus, seems he was bitten by a zombie and becomes part of the "undead." There is a zombie support group for the recently undead. Seems all the can eat are worms, maggots and hot dogs. There is even a twist at the end.

The film has some flashbacks to a previous time/movie in order to catch the story up to date. For those who liked the old Night Stalker series, check this one out. 4 stars for adults/ 5 stars for teens

Like my title says, it is a decent movie and it is worth the watch. I won't go all gung ho like the other two reviewers about details, but the movie started out pretty good and it stayed in the good range, there was no real climax in action as it was basically all action. The ending I suppose had a sort of climax then an anti-climax/neutral area. I will say though that the movie will throw you for a loop and that's the only reason I really liked it. I didn't guess the plot at all. I also didn't know it was a comic, which I gleamed from the other reviewers review, so I suppose the fans of this comic might like or hate this movie, and if you didn't know about the comics either, then you'll probably enjoy watching it as well. It just didn't wow me, but if you like a action/horror/comedy movie, then this is worth buying. I would say rent it first, or wait until it hits the 5 dollar shelf mark.

I'm not familiar with the source material for this so I came to it without any preconceptions. This movie is a shame. Given everything I can't say it could ever have been real good but it could have been so much better.

Here's the scoop. Dylan is a private eye, in New Orleans, working on low level, grunt type cases. He's got a go-for, Marcus, who yearns to be a real partner. He gets involved in a case stuck in the middle of a war between Vampires and Werewolves. He was hoping not to work that realm again, but he gets sucked in. Seems there is a stolen relic which, when embedded in a host, will release Belial, a really evil demon who will decimate all mankind.

First off: New Orleans has a sense of mystery all it's own. It's a great setting for this type of flick, but not one character speaks with a southern accent. None of the music is of the region and they do nothing to give the viewer the flavor of the area. Not the French Quarter or the homes or the Bayou area. Attending to that alone would have raised the quality of the movie immeasurably. Then there's Dylan himself. He looks like a young Christopher Reeve and that's the problem. He looks too young for the role. And he acts too "cute." I felt the part needed way more gravity. His sidekick, Marcus, on the other hand is a hoot. He way outshines Dylan. His lines are better and he really put a stitch in me with his delivery. He makes this movie. Plus....I just didn't believe it. If Vampires, Werewolves and The Undead were that prevalent anywhere we'd all know about it. I couldn't suspend my disbelief. It might have worked in the comic, but it doesn't work here. Surprisingly, a lot of similar movies move along well only to drop the ball on the 5 yard line. This had a really good climax.
