Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

Product Description

Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh) is a world famous private detective who specializes in the supernatural. 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.

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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Movie, worth the watch July 10, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars NO PLAN, JUST BIGGER GUNS May 5, 2013
Format:DVD
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

I liked Dylan Dog, it was a lot better than I expected. The story was actually pretty cool and really went into detail when it came to explaining how zombies, vampires and werewolves live their lives. It was actually funny, as well; Marcus was a very funny character and had great chemistry with Dylan. The locations they went to were actually fun, like the Body shop was literally a body shop where they went to buy body parts like human arms. And the zombie support group was also a great addition. It also had a decent ending, didn't fully expect it. It did drag on a couple of times. My main complaint was Anita Briem's performance; she was very boring and bland. Most of her lines were emotionless and dull; she'd just stand around during the shots and wait to read her lines in the most tedious way possible. (like if she didn't want to be there). Brandon Routh and Sam Huntington were great though.

It's definitely not a film for everyone, but I recommend it to anyone with an open mind or plenty of free time. As of 8/10/12, this film is available on Netflix Streaming.

Dylan Dog has violence and blood.

This movie is a lot of fun. No An American Werewolf in London, of course, but well worth your time. I think you will enjoy it. Make some popcorn, get a coke, and have some fun.

Not the best movie I've ever seen, not the worst. Brandon Routh is alright, but Sam Huntington steals every scene he can and really livens up the movie.
