The Breed (2001) Review


OK
In the near future, vampires exist peacefully alongside man until a renegade group seemingly tries to rebuild a kind of Nazi regime, with bloodsuckers herding humans into concentration camps. This strange WWII allegory is unfortunately neither very successful as a political drama nor as a monster movie; the flashbacks are too obvious, and the buddy cop plot is overwhelmingly impossible to follow. Our cop heroes (Adrian Paul and Bokeen Woodbine: one's human, one's a vampire) jump from suspect to suspect without so much as a word of explanation why. The moody atmosphere (pitch black, everywhere) and illegible computer readouts with dossiers on each character don't help.

Joe And Max Review


Very Good
A very capable film, Joe and Max explores the odd relationship between America's "brown bomber" Joe Louis and Nazi Germany's greatest fighter, Max Schmeling, on the eve of WWII. Til Schweiger was born to play the role of Schmeling, and the film is at its best when it focuses on the reluctant Nazi's torment at the hands of Hitler and his cronies. Louis's life gets a less thorough treatment, probably because it's a bit less dramatic, but either way I learned a lot about both fighters -- and the countries they represented.
