V - Very Fun Movie

Welcome to day twenty-two of the A to Z Challenge. If you're here for the first time or if you've forgotten already, this year's theme is movies! I am posting a quote, a character or two, and a brief synopsis of a movie for each letter. You then get to guess the movie in the comments. Answers will be revealed in the following day's post.

Answer to U: The Usual Suspects

Today we have one of those movies that you watch just to enjoy. The effects are great and the story is simple. Here are your clues.

Synopsis
There's no chance this movie will ever be listed as Hugh Jackman's best. But that's OK, 'cause it's also got Kate Beckinsale. Interesting tidbit, Kate learned to speak Romanian so she could speak English with a Romanian accent. Kate Beckinsale in Romania? There's got to be a vampire or a werewolf involved, right?

Character
Anna Valerious is the last of her family, cursed for the last ten generations. She is determined to destroy her archenemy and end the curse. Years of preparing has made her into a formidable fighter.

Quote
"Vampires, gargoyles, warlocks, they're all the same — best when cooked well."

And there are today's clues. Like I said, not the greatest movie of all time, but it's still good mindless fun.
