Editorial Reviews

An action-packed battle against man and beast! Half-man, Half-vampire, Pure Evil! Perfect Creature is set in a world where humans genetically engineer vampires to be the next step in their evolution. Chaos breaks loose when the delicate balance is destroyed by a virus that turns one species against the other. The only way to restore peace is for the two opposing races to work together to end the chaos.

4.0 out of 5 stars What does it mean to serve? July 19, 2007
Format:DVD
What does it mean to serve? This is the moral quandry that faces the vampires of the Brotherhood, a race of genetically-engineered beings whose moral duty it is to protect their fellow sentients - mankind.

This fascinating reworking of the vampire legend is set on an Earth similar to our own, but with some notable differences. The most important, of course, is the existence of bloodsuckers, who were created by primitive science and breeding projects sometime in the early 18th century. At first, these new creatures were hunted by mankind, burned at the stake and slaughtered. However, they eventually merged somehow with the Catholic (or possibly Anglican) Church, to create a new religion, one with a main tenet espousing vampires as God's servants to mankind.

The background of this alternate Earth is a little hazy, and that's the reason why I subtracted a star (I would've liked to know more about this world), but that doesn't detract from the story, which is a neat little tale about a female detective in the city of Jamestown (Virginia? Is this a Kingdom of Virginia? Or an uber-British Empire? A queen is mentioned...) who is investigating a series of Jack the Ripper-like killings with the help of a vampire 'priest', Brother Silas.

I won't give away plot details, because this movie is so much fun, you just have to watch it yourself and enjoy! The acting is well-done, with Saffron Burrows (yummy) and Dougray Scott as the leads.

Good special effects (airships!) round out what is a very cool little gem of a movie. Why does crap like Transformers get such wide releases, and awesome flicks like this languish in obscurity? It's not fair, I tells ya...

3.0 out of 5 stars tantalizing plot but not quite complete August 18, 2007
Format:DVD
The plot is potentially tantalizing and fascinating. It's a vampire movie with more than a simple twist, it is a 180 turn, the vampires serve humanity (no not on a platter, but as the scientists and religious leaders). The whole movie feels like you are trying to catch up, having entered into the story half way through and having missed lots of important facts and details. This is not a real bother, just takes some time to put things together, the big problem is that the movie also feels like it stops a chapter short of a satisfying ending. The movie revolves around the nature of the brotherhood and the nature of the individual vampires, an individual versus collective motif. The question from the two brothers viewpoints is "is this who i really am?", either the one brother who conforms entirely to the collective's wishes or the other brother who goes rogue and kills.

It is a potentially neat and interesting theme. Even to look carefully at a piece of it would make for a spectacular movie. The problem is, despite some excellent photography and set work, the plot is fragmented enough that i really didn't get the big idea that the author intended. Resolving the movie satisfactorially must related the birth of the female vampire to the reason she is hidden from the brotherhood, a point i simply can't seem to fit into the rest of the movie, therefore being left with a serious deficiency. Now if this was a "normal" action movie or vampire movie, i'd ask myself "so what?", they don't rely much on plot and coherence for their value. This movie does, it proposes a view about service, about religion, about society that tries to make a big point, my problem is that i simply missed the point. At this point, i am blaming the movie, not myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to see more! May 19, 2008
Format:DVD
The look and the feel of "Perfect Creature" was refreshing. It is seldom that I see a movie, these days, that can make me feel the characters emotions and draws me into the story so thoroughly. I certainly would like to see more of Dougray Scott (yummy) to quote someone else. When will a sequel be made?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so bad, but a wasted opportunity October 26, 2008
Format:DVD
If what you are looking is a horror movie, you will likely be disappointed by this one. The strength of "Perfect Creature" does not lie in scares or gore (there is some of both, but likely not enough to satisfy horror fans), but in good direction and decent/good acting. And as another reviewer has written, the best quality of this movie is perhaps its being very "atmospheric".

The alternate Dickensian world where humans and genetically-engineered "vampires" coexist is interesting, well depicted and somewhat credible. At the same time, I found the movie promising but ultimately disappointing. Lots of potential depth not really exploited, with many underdeveloped and somewhat obscure metaphors scattered around the storyline. Who are these super-gifted and altruistic "vampires" supposed to represent in "our" world? The (one) Church? Science? None of these make much sense.

While the first half of the movie was compelling and promising, I found the second half (which I won't describe in any detail to avoid spoilers) too short, hurried and vastly incomplete. This could have been a great starter for a TV series, but as a self-contained movie there is not enough time to know their characters, their stories and their motivations. The ending is what I liked the least, leaving lots of questions unanswered, closing some plots but not others while opening new ones in a rushed way, blatantly to leave doors open for a sequel that may or may not appear.

Overall, not a bad movie, but the actors, the material and the direction of this movie deserved a better screenplay. It is not so surprising that in the US this one went straight to DVD, without being shown in theaters.

5.0 out of 5 stars verry good si-fi
This is one of the better vampire movies that I have seen. A mix of sci-fi, steam punk and religion. Set in a world that looks like the mid 1800 's England.
