The fight choreography is satisfying (if not revolutionary), the few dashes of CGI have a rubbery aftertaste, and Edo-era fetishists (quaint villages with everything made of rope and bamboo!) get their fix in an extensive series of flashback battles.
Despite inserting a jumble of backstory into his live-action take on an action experiment from Japanese animation studio Production I.G, director Chris Nahon captures some of the visceral thrills of the nine-year-old anime.
As good as any Hollywood movie, which is to say it's got lousy visual effects and generic dialogue. Since we're already forgiving that anyway, there's enough engaging action to make it plenty fun and entertaining.
Slashing swords, splashing blood, and flashy CGI - not to mention a hot chick in school uniform - sound like a cool combination, but the life bleeds out of Blood: The Last Vampire long before the final reel.
