‘Cirque Du Freak’ Movie Brought Action And An OK Plot
Universal Pictures’ Cirque du Freak :The Vampire’s Assistant movie brought action and an ok plot . It stars: John C. Reilly, Ken Watanabe, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Massoglia, Ray Stevenson, Patrick Fugit, Orlando Jones, Willem Dafoe, and Salma Hayek.
Although the storyline/plot left something to be desired, “Cirque du Freak :The Vampire’s Assistant” did deliver more action than I had originally expected it to.
The movie focused around character , Darren Shan who is best friends with a guy named Steve. They eventually end up going to a “Cirque du Freak” show that changes young Darren’s life forever.
Darren steals a spider from Larten Crepsley who is a vampire in the show. Darren’s friend, Steve gets bitten by the spider. So in order to cure his friend, Darren must agree to become a half vampire,and be Larten Crepsley’s assistant.
Larten Crepsley’s breed of vampires are in a war with another breed. The other breed want to get Darren to join their side,but he refuses so they turn Steve into one of them,instead. They use Steve to capture Darren’s family and a girlfriend that Darren made, in the freak show. So now, Darren and Steve,who were once best friends, have a vampire showdown, and battle it out to conclude this sort of strange movie.
Overall, the movie was just ok for me. I liked that it had a lot of action, mixed with a little comedy,but the plot left much to be desired. It was the first G-rated vampire movie I’ve ever seen.
