Sadly it was a let down. Rather then have it as a horror movie they made an action movie.
They him hiding in the day light and going one man army at night resisting the urge to feed. I think they should have stolen from the guys who did "An American werewolf in London". They could have had the main character start seeing monsters where his friends where and loosing his mind as the days go by. Slowly giving in to the temptation as if it was a drug addiction and tying his powers to the line "The blood of your enemy's will give you strength, the power. To over come their army's. But at the cost of your eternal life".
Forget what I said about it being better then the story of Skywalker, this guy was as bad if not worse.
