Rating: B -- Go ahead, bite. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- A drama that feels both strenuously earnest and impossible to take seriously. Full Review
Globe and Mail
Rating: 2/5 -- Overall, Byzantium is an average film - the performances, story and direction are all watchable, but anti-Twihards may not embrace its unconventional approach to vampirism. Full Review

Film Comment Magazine
3 stars out of 5 -- [T]he grotty, grungy atmosphere of a coastal resort gone to seed is effectively evoked.
Neil Jordan is not trying to reinvent the vampire mythos with Byzantium, but he does manage to give us something that tries to be new and different, and while it's predictable, sometimes manages to be engaging. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Female-forward and class-conscious, allegorical and adventurous, Byzantium is almost the anti-Batman. Full Review
Globe and Mail
Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE director Neil Jordan's lavish yet decadent tale of a blood-sucking mother/daughter duo whose dark 200-year history threatens to catch up with them at a run-down hotel on the English coast. Their story begins during the Napoleonic Wars, when young Eleanor (Ronan) is abandoned as Clara (Arterton) falls into a passionate love affair. Two centuries later, demure Eleanor and extroverted Clara are on the run when they seek sanctuary in a dilapidated coastal resort. There, Clara sets her sights on a lonely soul named Noel (Daniel Mays), who has just inherited the Byzantium hotel, a once-thriving inn that has fallen into a sad state of disrepair. Before long, the elder vampire has transformed the Byzantium into a makeshift brothel where she and her young companion can quench their thirst for human blood while maintaining a low profile. Meanwhile, Eleanor falls for Frank (Caleb Landry Jones), a charming young waiter who unwittingly draws out the natural storyteller in her. Amidst a string of mysterious disappearances in the sleepy coastal town, Frank realizes that Eleanor's extraordinary tales are much more than simple fantasy. As Clara and Eleanor's sanguinary past slowly comes into focus, it's only a matter of time before the pair will be forced to either flee once again or face their fates with a sense of dark courage. Jonny Lee Miller and Sam Riley co-star.
