Rayne is back again, this time fighting a group of undead Nazi’s intent on injecting Adolf Hitler with her blood in an attempt at making him immortal. This latest entry in the video game spin-off brings Rayne back once again ready for a good fight.

With Uwe Boll directing you would expect this to be a pretty good flick with some decent horror and aberrant behavior. For the most part you would be wrong. Yes, Rayne is back as a vampire fighting vampires, zombies, and Nazi’s but that sounds better than it is. The plot lacks anything resembling depth and stumbles over itself repeatedly. The only mildly redeeming thing about the film is a minute long love scene between Rayne and Magda.
Acting was less than interesting in this one. Malthe felt flat through most of the film with only momentary displays of energy or emotion. Pare and the rest of the cast weren’t any better and the lack of connection between them was obvious.
Camera work was horrible with shaky, out of focus, grainy, and blurry shots in many places. Sets were mediocre at best while backgrounds were largely non-existent. Dialogue lacked energy and didn’t do much for the story at all. Sound and soundtrack felt weak and without depth.
Overall BloodRayne: The Third Reich is a pass. Skip this one and find something with actual entertainment value unless you are a die-hard series fan or infatuated with Malthe.
With plenty of violence, gore, some foul language, nudity, and explicit sexuality save this one for the oldest teens and above.
BloodRayne: The Third Reich is no longer showing in any Littleton, Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 1 out of 5
