I think this is a world-class film! It contains great martial arts and great storytelling, and it turns the vampire genre on its ear.

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.

If you're willing to accept it for what it is - a hyperactive fantasy, pleasantly ridiculous and delivered with amusing conviction by director Chris Nahon - you should be suitably entertained.

This isn't a great movie. But it's sincere as an entertainment, it looks good, it's atmospheric.

[It] turns its collection of overused action/horror staples into... well... a kind of fun collection of overused action/horror staples.

Boys in the audience may groan indulgently, but their dates ought to squeal with delighted pride.
July 2, 2009
Stylishly shot and undeniably trashy, this is a strange mish-mash of a film that's actually surprisingly entertaining, despite the usual choppily-edited fight scenes.

If anything watch it for the cool vamps and powerful performance from star [Gianna] Jun...

The dialogue is horrible (sample exchange: "Little bitch is out of control"), the acting is worse.
October 19, 2009
... a bizarre mix of sensibilities that falls apart into a mess of cultural cues. The result is as tone deaf as the confused accents.

Feels like one of those Underworld sequels, but with a samurai-wielding Japanese schoolgirl instead of the tight leather outfits . . .

Really, is there supposed to be any entertainment value in this thing, or is it meant to be a ponderously stupid endurance test?

So laughably awful that it easily qualifies for so-bad-it's-good status.

The best thing that can come from this film is that it will be so poorly received both by critics and audiences that it will put a damper on Hollywood's current interest in remaking anime.
July 15, 2009
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.
July 12, 2009
If you're not familiar with this kind of live-action anime in general, Blood isn't a bad place to start, but for diehard fans it's a lot of been-there-done-that.
