Read the book instead.

This movie was a good book turned into a brain dead vampire movie aimed at teenagers. First of all it's based on half the story (the book before it in the series "The Vampire Lestat" ended with the beginning of "Queen of the Damned") They left out main characters, omitted the histories, and even changed how Lestat became a vampire, what was left out of "Interview With The Vampire" felt like they just needed to fit into some time constraints, what they did with "Queen of the Damned" was a hack and slash job. Even taking it separately from the book, it was at best mediocre. The characters were two dimensional, and bland, and the plot was boring and unconnected. This movie's only redeeming qualities were the mood the lighting and the sets added, and the costumes, which both were wonderful, but besides that, read the book instead.

Waste of time

I've watched it disregarding anything related to the books, therefore, I wouldn't judge the movie by any fidelity with the novels (I've read The Vampire Lestat but not Queen of the Damned). Having said that, it is indeed a bad movie. Bad acting, horrible visual and sound effects. Gutural sounds when biting, no blood after feeding, blur and trails behind the vampires movements. Interview with the Vampire was able to show very elegant special effects but this movie is hard to watch. It isn't a good movie even if measured only by it's story or if you don't care about the books.

At least the vampires weren't sparkling...

"Queen of the Damned" is a vampire movie that sort of have me divided into two camps. The first is that the movie is actually fun and entertaining enough, and it does have some nice aspects to it. The second is that "Queen of the Damned" is actually one of the corniest and most stereotypical of vampire movies out there.

Now, I haven't read the book upon which this movie is based and sculpted, so how true the events and characters were to what Anne Rice constructed, I have no idea.

The story in "Queen of the Damned" is about Lestat, a vampire coming out in the open and proclaiming himself a vampire to the world in conjunction with promoting his band. A ruse to call out the elder vampires.

"Queen of the Damned" is entertaining enough for what it turned out to be. Campy and cheesy, certainly, but there still was something entertaining to it. However, the storyline was bordering on being ridiculous and did have some gaping plot holes here and there. And there is a frightful similarity between the Lestat and Jesse characters and the Edward and Bella from "Twilight". And that sort of was just ridiculous.

It is the atmosphere of the movie that works out for the best, because there is sort of a gloomy goth-like atmosphere to the movie.

"Queen of the Damned" feels like a fan service movie through and through. And the movie never shook that mantle, and it wasn't particularly promoting the enjoyment of the movie.

Stuart Townsend (playing Lestat) was really carrying this movie, and this was definitely his movie in every aspect. And while Aaliyah certainly was great in the villainous role (playing Queen Akasha), then it was hard to take her serious when she was moving. Vincent Perez (playing Marius) was also adding a lot of flavor to the movie, despite having a minor role also.

This is an entertaining enough movie, but hardly a vampire movie that stands out as being memorable.
