Vampire Warriors follows the uneasy friendship between vampire hunter Ar (Jiang Lu-Xia) and a family of “vegetarian” vampires, including Max (Chrissie Chau) and her womanizing father Lung (Chin Siu-Ho). Ar spends her days walking around hunting down bad vampires, while Max and her good vampire friends hang around town aimlessly, complaining about how bored they are. That all changes with the arrival of Mung (Yuen Wah), a vampire kills other vampires to make himself more powerful (aren’t they always?). When Ar realizes that Mung’s dragging her sister (Law regular Pinky Cheung) with him, she joins forces with the vegetarian vampires to fight their common enemy. Written by Anonymous

Pretty colorful, and nice action describes this movie. The girls have nice bodies, and they're good looking.
So this is what you expect from a good vampire movie. Hard action, and bit of sexploitation.
How this movie works for you might depend on your taste. If you're looking for a serious drama, this is not it, but you should have figured that out from its title. But if you're into Hong Kong movies, and the way they're geared to entertain, this movie is for you.
If you felt that the Twilight Saga was intellectualizing the whole vampire thing too much you came to the right place. The movie in my opinion has lot better looking chicks too.
This is a solid entertainment from the good people of Hong Kong's movie studios.
This is quite possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen. The title suggests some classic HK hokey fun, akin to, say, the obscurely named star-vehicle The Twins Effect. By the way, if anyone reading this review has seen and enjoyed Vampire Warriors, I refer you to The Twins Effect to see how it could be done SO much better. However, there is zero fun, originality or creativity in VW. I guess it's low budget, but I've seen a lot of films with equally small budgets that were much better; this is no excuse for the lame, tedious fare on display. Things I hated about this film include the stupid echo-ey quality of the vampire's voices, the really obvious wire work, the appalling lack of story, lame dialogue, pedestrian acting, uninteresting locations…..the list goes on. But perhaps the most unforgivable sin is that it was intended to be funny, or at the very least slightly amusing, but it fell flat on it's face at every turn. Admittedly, I only saw the first 25 minutes, but I was just about ready to saw off my own leg and eat it by that point, so rather than needlessly lose a limb, or stick pins in my eyes, I watched another film instead.
