“Day Shift” is a vampire thriller stuffed with lock-and-load ultraviolence, starring Jamie Foxx in imperious badass mode. At heart, though, it’s a knowingly eccentric goof of a movie, to the point that it’s hard, for a while, not to find it agreeable, even as you register what a preposterous piece of fluff it is. Unfortunately, it’s also an arduous piece of fluff. It’s full of blow-you-away action scenes, and it’s also full of rules — a satirical vampire cosmology that’s fun until it starts to be just convoluted enough to give you a headache, especially when the rules are applied as inconsistently as they are here. Directed by J.J. Perry, “Day Shift” wants to be a dessert drenched in blood. That gives it flavor but also weighs it down.Day Shift 2022 Movie Download.
Foxx plays Bud Jablonski, a Los Angeles vampire hunter whose day job is driving around in an ancient pick-up truck to clean and service swimming pools in the San Fernando Valley. Bud’s one and only goal is to get his hands on $10,000, which he needs to pay for the braces and grade-school tuition of his 8-year-old daughter, Paige (Zion Broadnax). (If he doesn’t have the money by Monday, his ex-wife, played by Meagan Good, will move the kid to Florida.) He plans to get the cash by selling vampire fangs, which, once extracted, can be quite valuable, depending on which bloodsucker they come from.
Sounds simple, right? But “Day Shift,” which is at once an undead action movie, a cheeky good cop/crazy cop buddy comedy, and the tale of a tough but saintly divorced dad out to save his family, is one of the more perversely twisty vampire flicks in recent memory. There are, in this movie, five types of vampires, organized by age: Southern, Eastern, Spider, Uber, and Juvenile. Got it? Don’t worry if you don’t, because none of it comes to much.
