Interview with a vampire fan

I was asked to review this film but it wouldn't have been fair. I'm not a fan of this popular genre, so I sent along a lovely young thing who enjoys the rollicking frolicking of the long of tooth variety.
It will sell well in the cinema but for a true vampire genre lover it does not compete well with Blade or Underworld. I would rate it just under Van Helsing.
Cinematography? Some scenes were just too fake. With the technology today the scenes, especially the horse and burning bridge scenes, should have been slightly believable.
The 3D effects with the vampires were done really well. More than once, I jumped out of my skin and I wasn't the only one.
I had no idea Tim Burton had anything to do with the film. I could not see his influence in the film.
Costumes? The costumes suited the film. Simple costumes that suited that time period.
Acting? The actors played their roles well and were captivating. They made me feel like I was actually there at times.
The plot? I enjoyed the plot. It was political, which made it interesting. It was fun to believe that such an important and admired historical figure could have a secret past and really be a vampire killer.
The movie was not fast paced, but it did contain lots of action and kept you guessing.
Vampires in 3D. Some of the scariest looking vampires. So well created.
The running horse's scene was too fake for my liking.
