To help solve his money problems, Bud turns to his old friend, master vampire hunter Big John (Snopp Dogg, happy to play the movie’s most evil character), to return. League. Bud has a chance to prove himself a changed man – if he can survive a week of supervision by a Union representative, he’ll be allowed back in and can start making serious money. come back. Unfortunately for Bud, Union’s representative is Seth (Dave Franco) the nerdy, nervous, over-talkative, completely Not suitable for the dangerous field work that Bud drew him to.
Again: all of this is solid, in theory. I quite like the hierarchy and hint of politics going on in the vampire/hunter world. But “Day Shift” doesn’t spend enough time on any of this, and instead relies heavily on cryptic satires and a rushed script. Audrey’s backstory is insanely ambiguous (and that doesn’t help with Souza’s acting being unconvincing), as is a side episode involving one of Bud’s neighbors, Heather ( Natasha Liu Bordizzo, who was kicked several times in the butt but was still being ordered by bodyguards.) Franco’s out-of-water fish character is always offensive, to the point where he begins to take a toll on the film. And it doesn’t make any sense for Bud to be relentlessly cruel to Seth wherever he is while he’s here, since Seth is the one judging him and his only chance to return to the Alliance.
However, where “Day Shift” succeeds is because it works. Vampire’s gore is fitting for gooey, but the movie itself is never as scary (nor as funny as one might think). But when it came time for Bud to take on some vampires, Perry delivered. The filmmaker has had over 30 years of a career as a stuntman and second unit director, and he has taken his knowledge of action scenes and created countless moments. interesting. Best of all: most of the time, you really can understand action – it’s not derailed by quick cuts and unnecessary close-ups. The vampires are incredibly soft and flexible, which means they constantly do somersaults and spin all over the place while Bud fires his gun (wooden bullets, of course) at them.
