| Quite likable but not especially good Hong Kong action-comedy-horror
After a sinister late-night encounter, a geeky young guy discovers that he is immune to vampire toxins. He is, therefore, summoned by the Vampire Cleanup Department who are a small group of specialists dedicated to combatting and dispelling vampires.

This Hong Kong feature is a genre mash-up of comedy, horror and action (with even a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure). The comedy wasn't especially funny, the horror was peripheral and the action was fairly unremarkable, resulting in a middling movie. The most interesting character was the female vampire that our geeky hero develops a love affair with. She is played like a fish-out-of-water innocent and displays some of the very unusual vampire traits associated with China, i.e. the hopping vampire! This type of detail specific to China is good fun to see and the character of the girl vampire was pretty good value. But the film as a whole was a bit ho hum otherwise with nothing much else sanding out very much. It is quite a cute film though and is hard to dislike but I personally only found it sporadically entertaining.
