About This DVD

"Vampire Cop Ricky," is an action comedy about a policeman who turns into a vampire driven by sexual urges and a thirst for blood.

The film is a star turn for Kim Su-ro, an actor who has come a long way since playing bit parts in popular films like "Two Cops" and "Shiri" in the late 1990s and larger supporting roles later on. Kim's specialty is playing frenetic, slightly psychotic not-so-good guys, and "Vampire Cop" gives him ample room to show off his stuff.

Kim plays Na Do-yol, an obnoxious detective who doesn't mind bending the law for a little cash. Do-yol's extra income comes from his questionable relationship with the owner of an illegal gambling establishment, played with the right amount of sleaze by Son Byung-ho.

Do-yol's plush life gets turned upside down when he is bitten by a vampire mosquito from Transylvania. Though the tiny bite isn't enough to make the detective into a full vampire, it does give him certain bloodsucking traits, including an inappropriate desire to lick things at a murder scene.

From the beginning, one gets the feeling that the makers of the film aren't going for highbrow comedy here. And things get even more adolescent after Do-yol realizes he has vampire superpowers when sexually aroused, which leads to a number of gratuitous shots of scantily-clad young women.

But as the saying goes, "With great powers come great responsibilities." And so, Do-yol uses his newfound powers to take on the bad guys, turning "Vampire Cop" from a comedy into a superhero action film midway into the story. At this point, the film seems to want to be a Korean version of "Blade" and "Spider-man," and Kim does his best Bruce Lee impressions _ after, of course, getting charged up ogling women's breasts.

Thrown into the mix are the usual "friends of the superhero" characters, including an older good cop (Chun Ho-jin) whom Do-yol relies on and a saintly girlfriend (Cho Yo-jung), who runs a lingerie shop.
