Get ready for nonstop action when a bank-robbing gang of misfits heads to Mexico with the blueprints for the perfect million-dollar heist!

Ultimately, the last fully human burglar (Robert Patrick - The Faculty, Striptease, Terminator 2) is forces to join his arch rival, a Texas sheriff (Bo Hopkins - Phantoms, The Newtown Boys, U-Turn), in an action-packed, kill-or-be-killed battle to stop these evil creatures and save their own lives!

Your Opinions and Comments
The plot follows a group of bank robbers on their way to mexico, who one-by-one are being turned into vampires by each other. It`s then up to the main protagonist (Robert Patrick) to fight off the undead and team up with the texas ranger who is hunting him down to open a good old can of whoop-ass in a standoff/bloodbath remeniscent of the original movie. There`s a decent amount of gore, but the buildup to the last 20 minutes or so is a little boring now and again
Despite several minor flaws (i.e. a very conveniently timed eclipse) i did manage to squeeze a little enjoyment from this film. Keep an eye out for living b-movie legend Bruce Campbell in the first 5 minutes by the way, and don`t expect too much and you`ll be alright!
Picture : Not bad considering it`s a straight to rental title, the picture is relatively clean throughout.
Audio : Crisp to a certain degree, but nowhere near perfect.
Extras : None to speak of.
Overall : Not a bad movie. You can see the filmmakers didn`t want to retread the original, but it`s a bit TOO loosely tied in with it to call it a sequel. It`s got vampires, Mexico and five minutes in the titty twister. It`s not as bad as you may have heard! The disc however is overall pretty poor though.
