This review contains spoilers:

I have seen movies done for the fun of it and you can see the characters having fun as they go about making the movie, causing you the viewer to also enjoy the viewing. This movie felt like they were the only ones laughing and we were the joke.

Badly written, woefully directed, and other than the actors doing what they are paid to do there is nothing good to say about this movie. This movie is one of those reasons you know Netflix needs other studios to get out of the streaming market so they can give great movie makers chances to go wild.

What is the point of writing a movie with a straight to textbook buddy pairing we have seen many times over. And their way to spice it up is the weaker one will pee his pants when scared, what the hell?

Day Shift is a vampire movie about a vampire hunter (Jamie Foxx), who is down on his luck. He needs to raise money to be able to keep his ex-wife from moving to Florida and taking their daughter with her. He has been kicked out of the vampire union and for the most guessable reason, he is known to be reckless. But the only way to raise the money needed to keep the family is for him to join the union and work paired with a rookie. He was told to work the day shift and keep to all the rules of the union if he does not want to be kicked out again.

The challenge is, while working solo out of the union he killed an old woman who happens to be related to a vampire lady who has taken over everything vampire in L.A. killing off all the former leaders. So she is hunting for him for revenge.

You know that one thing we all hate in movies, when the bad guys capture someone and talk all day and do not kill them.

Well, she has been chasing him down for killing a member of her family, so you would expect her to kill one of his in return, but nope. You see she tracks him down to his ex-wife home captures, the ex and daughter, here is the icing on the cake and captures him too.

I was lost for words I was like ok, the movie still has a long way to go, so she is dragging so that someone can come and save his ass. But nope, she takes the family unhurt to her lair and leaves him alive.

No broken bones, no bite nothing – he is left alive. The writers had no idea how to make him mad so he will go save his family other than leaving him alive to come do a rescue and secure a revenge and kill the main bad guy.

I will give this a miss, it is worthless.
