Not bad, but nothing special,
This review is from: Dylan Dog: Dead of Night [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Never heard of Dylan Dog? Well you aren't alone, even if the character is a fairly popular Italian comic creation that even partially inspired the cult horror classic Cemetery Man, but I digress. In Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, Brandon Routh (star of other comic book movies Superman Returns and Scott Pilgrim VS The World) stars as the titular hero, who has a shattered past and finds himself drawn back into the world of paranormal monsters, which include vampires, zombies, and werewolves. The film's story is all over the place, but despite that it is a pretty fun ride for the most part. All the other actors involved, Sam Huntington, Peter Storemare, Taye Diggs, and pro wrassler Kurt Angle among others, all play with tongue firmly in cheek, while Routh plays the proceedings a little too seriously given the content here. Still, fan of the character or not, Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is worth a look at the least, and it tends to be a bit more entertaining than a number of recent big-budget comic book flicks as well.
