like the concept

Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh) is a New Orleans detective who deals with supernatural creatures. Marcus (Sam Huntington) is his assistant. Elizabeth (Anita Briem) tries to hire him to investigate his father's murder but he refuses. He recognizes it as a werewolf attack. He tries to work with vampire leader Vargas (Taye Diggs). Marcus is killed by a werewolf.

I like the concept of this supernatural world loosely adopted from an Italian comic book. I don't really like Routh as this character. He's more of a pretty face with comedic leanings. He needs to be more of a hard-boiled tough detective. The budget is also not big enough for its goals. It looks more like a B-movie. The action could be better. Overall, I like the concept but the execution is not great.

Pretty good film, worth seeing I think

I am a huge fan of Sergio Bonelli comics and this film was a pleasant surprise. Whereas the setting and the plot of the film is ... well... Americanised, it does still manage to capture some of the feel of the original comic books. Which is a good thing. If Europeans weren't so bent on everything being 100% accurate, maybe we would have more of these films and more people would familiarise themselves with Italian and French comics.

Cons: It has no plot to speak of, it fails to transfer 80% of Dylan Dog's character, it's in the wrong city, in the wrong country, on the wrong continent and lacks some major characters.

Pros: It's on the right planet! The main character is there :P And it's fun! You will actually laugh out loud. Partially because some bits are funny and partially because the plot is so silly, but you will laugh. Which is always a plus in a horror film. It does manage to capture 20% of Dylan Dog's character which is more than any other film made on European comic book heroes. Big plus for that! It doesn't take itself too seriously and is a great way to pass the time while waiting for Supernatural season 11. It has the right atmosphere. I was very impressed with that. It feels like a film based on a comic book and that's very important to me. The acting is actually decent and on occasion even good! Brandon Routh looks hot in his one Dylan Dog suit he has. What more do you want?

In short, I think anyone who likes comic books in general and is a fan of films and series like Interview with the Vampire, Supernatural and such should like this film. If you are a fan of original comics, try and watch this with an open mind (repeat after me: limited budget, must be commercial a bit). If you've never read the original comics, you'll just enjoy it and maybe you'll even grab a comic book after you've seen the film. So it's all good.

I'm not a big fan of Dylan Dog comic book series, but I've read them. That pretty much sums up my whole problem with this movie. The story is not even close to the original and the characters are all wrong presented. The story of Dylan Dog has a huge movie potential (Dylan is detective,but not just any kind of detective; he is, as he called himself,an investigator of nightmares. Although quite young, he already has a career of Scotland Yard police officer, is a recovering alcoholic, and behind him are dozens of broken hearts. But who is actually Dylan neither he does not know; his past is covered in veil of secrecy. He is a young man in a world of supernatural, but his biggest enemies are his own demons.) The writers obviously didn't put a lot of effort in this movie. They created a completely different character, and deprived him of everything we like about Dylan Dog. Something that could be unique, they turned into a forgettable flick.
