In the not-too-distant future, blood supplies are running desperately low. The search for a substitute continues on, unsuccessfully. Vampires have exhausted their human harvests, and the lack of food is causing them to regress into a devolved, bat-like state. As one company attempts to develop the first blood alternative, one of its lead researchers aligns himself with the last remaining humans in order to find a cure, but as everyone knows, there's no money to be made in cures... DAYBREAKERS is a refreshingly original and topical vampire film that translates current social and political issues into the world of Fantasy and Horror. A great amount of care has been put into writing and designing a vampire-centric universe, where bloodsucking politicians debate over undead issues on TV, and where cars, houses, and workplaces are fully equipped with sun-filtering devices. It is a high concept film with an incredible scale, but everything it creates is squandered by the plodding pace and threadbare storyline that lead up to an expected conclusion. Still, the critical outlook on the health care industry and enjoyable performances make it a worthwhile watch.
