Editorial Reviews

The deadliest assassin to stand the test of time. From a Producer of Hero and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon comes Blood: The Last Vampire, based on the cult hit anime series. Demons have infested Earth. And only one warrior stands between the dark and the light: Saya, a half-human, half-vampire samurai who preys on those who feast on human blood. Joining forces with the shadowy society known as the Council, Saya is dispatched to an American military base, where an intense series of swordfights leads her to the deadliest vampire of all. And now after 400 years, Saya's greatest hunt is about to begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the least bit disappointed! October 7, 2009
Format:DVD
When the animated version of this film first came out on DVD in 2002, I bought it right away. The animation at the time was amazing and beautiful compared to other anime released around the same time. The only gripe I had about it was that it was short, left us with a HUGE cliffhanger at the end and many questions unanswered. For years I had been waiting for them to make at least a sequel. My prayers were answered with the 50-episode series, Blood+. Instead of continuing the movie, Blood+ was revamped to fit a thicker story and plot. Needless to say, I was very happy with it.

So what was going through my mind when I saw a bootleg version of this live-action movie? "Nah, dont expect too much but just watch it since you have nothing better to do today". I'm an anime lover and infatuated with the Japanese culture as a whole, but 95% of their action movies have disappointed me, so I didnt expect much to begin with. As soon as I popped this in and saw the first few minutes, I thought "Wow, when was this made? Early 90's?". As the movie went along, I noticed a number of scenes from the animated version were integrated into the movie. I was very impressed that they did that on top of expanding on the story and action.

The action was absolutely great, but you have to either appreciate the anime versions or "kung-fu" movies to begin with. If you're not into this genre, don't bother wasting your time looking for a deep, twisting plot. This is purely entertainment. Especially now that the Twilight series has taken the world by storm(at least in America), you wont find any Vampire/Horror movie with an "original" plot anymore. I'm also a fan of horror movies, but the genre has become dull.

Bottom line: Watch this movie if you have somewhat interest in ANIME or KUNG-FU type films. If not, don't waste your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not here for those bottom-feeders August 8, 2009
Format:DVD
Currently movie vampires are beautiful, seductive, and opulent. Well, most of them, anyway.

Things are a bit different in "Blood: The Last Vampire," adapted from a gorgeously animated, plot-thin anime. It's a fast-moving, gory flick with plenty of vampires and swords, but it also suffers from a cluttered storyline (what's the point of the Elder again?) and a predictable plot twist at the end. Jeon Ji-hyun makes a brilliant dhampiric anti-heroine, though.

As the movie opens, we see a mysterious young girl, Saya (Jun), on a train. When the lights go out, she savagely attacks a man at the other end of the train with a sword. Turns out he's a "bloodsucker."

Half-vampire Saya works for the mysterious Council, and a kindly man-in-black named Michael -- but only until they find the vampire overlord Onigen. When people start dying on an American army base, she has to go undercover at the base high school. Unfortunately the general's daughter Alice (Allison Miller) sees Saya slaughtering a couple of vampires in the school gym, and later wanders into a vampire bar. She's as bright as a smashed lightbulb.

And some of the people working for the Council are determined to kill anyone who interferes in their work -- including Alice's father, General McKee. Alice ends up on a desperate road trip with Saya, trying to dodge the malevolent vampires that are tracking her new buddy. But Onigen is tracking them now, and it's becoming very personal. Cue a Big Reveal of epic clicheness about Onigen and Saya.

"Blood: The Last Vampire" is changed in many ways from the original OAV, such as Saya's background and her being a dhampir.

Vampires and Samurai action; a great combination. Such as the case with "Blood the Last Vampire", an anime film made in 2000. It garnered a cult following that several interpretations were made in different mediums. The one-shot (sequel to the anime film) manga by Benkyo Tamaoki was published in 2001, that was also inspired by the anime cult classic film directed by Kitakubo Hiroyuki which has also spawned a Japanese TV series called "Blood +". "BLOOD THE LAST VAMPIRE" is the live-action treatment of the anime film which was released in 2008 in Japan under the title "Last Blood" (aka. Rasuto Buraddo). Directed by Chris Nohan (Kiss of the Dragon) with screenplay written by Chris Chow, the film focuses on a half-human, half vampire girl named Saya who hunts and kills full-blooded vampires and shape-shifting demons in alliance with the humans. It stars Korean bombshell Jeon Ji-Hyeon (My Sassy Girl) in the lead, who is credited as Gianna Jun in this film. I was fortunate that the film is playing on a limited engagement in San Francisco.

Saya (Jeon Ji-Hyeon) is a 400 year old half human, half-vampire who was sired by a human demon/vampire hunter and a vampire mother. Raised and trained to become a hunter by a man called Kato, Saya is now the chief operative of a secret organization who hunts vampires called the 'Council', in her quest to seek out the most powerful vampire, Onigen--also said to be one of the oldest of the vampires. Saya is sent to go undercover at a U.S. air force base located in Japan. Saya is a loner and likes to work alone, but as fate would have it, she forms an uneasy friendship with a girl named Alice after she saved her from other demons. Saya is determined to kill her way to find Onigen, but now it seems like the hunter has become the hunted...

1.0 out of 5 stars stale, predictable plot
Boring, boring, boring. The production (setting, camera work) are first rate. But, unfortunately, that does not make up for the stale, boring, and formulaic plot. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay if you liked the Anime
Please be advised that you will only like this movie (in my own opinion) if you liked the Anime. The CGI is very variable. Some is as good as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Read more
