In a film set in the 1940s, Rayne says "Motherfucker" two times, even though the word was not common until the 1950's or the 1960's. See more »
Lt. Kaspar Jaeger:
I have no authority in these matters. But I will not stand by and let you kill that "creature" as part of some mandated experiment of yours, Doctor.
The fascinating caveat to this Lieutenant is that they are very difficult to kill. Only by stake, fire, holy water, decapitation, and sunlight. The vampire still stay resilient forever. It's a marvel of science. I'm on the cusp of clasping the secret to lifelong longevity. My experiments will contribute to the better endowment of the Reich... to ...

Uwe Boll strikes again. "The Third Reich" is the third film in the "Bloodrayne" franchise set this time in Europe during WW2. What drew me in wasn't that I was a fan of the films or even Boll, but the concept of a war torn backdrop with Nazis tackling the supernatural in the shape of a vampire. Even with a bad reputation, these premises I would gladly take the risk. However "The Third Reich" was a risk not worth taking. In 1943 Europe, during WW2 Rayne and a group of resistance fighters take on Nazi commandant Ekart Brand turned day-walker, who plan to grant Hitler immortality. While I was mildly amused by first two films, this entry was utterly dull with a constantly stilted, if rambling script with too little action to compensate it. Boy did Clint Howard's German scientist have plenty to say, very laborious too. For most part it's talky and with such a daft and lazy script (these characters sure do like to use phrases and sayings), best little was said, but Boll thought otherwise. It just meanders from one shot to another. Natassia Malthe returns as Rayne, rather sexed-up (just look at her outfit) oozing with confidence and angst, but a little more whinny than I remembered. Again her dialogues were often cringe-like, but when it came to the action choreography, her sword skills do deliver on the mobility and carnage. Although the gun combats, felt sluggish in its staginess. Also she does get her gear off, where Boll throws in random lesbian eroticism. Michael Pare monstrously hams it up as the German commandant who's turned by Rayne. Interesting concept, which can't hide the fact it's on the cheap and downright junky. Gotta love Rayne's nightmare sequence involving Hitler.
