Watch True Blood, Let the Right One In or Twilight instead. Or wait for Thirst or New Moon or Daybreakers or ...

Not only isn't the new effort up to the standards of the anime, it's bloody awful by any standard.

This live-action update of a popular Japanese anime film from 2000 has a heart full of mythology, but its fangs are dulled by an anemic script and clumsy action sequences that are notable mostly for an excess of cheese, not blood.

The peculiar, comic-book-like computer graphics -- artful at first -- finally overtake Blood and make it look like a video game instead of a graceful, graphic martial arts movie.

Suffers from abusive close-ups, repetitive fight sequences and uninspired demon design.

Don't let the subtitle of Blood: The Last Vampire alarm you. The finale of this tedious piece of Asian-ish action-schlock based on a popular anime series implies an intention to make more. One was plenty for me.

Blood: The Last Vampire might be described as Kill Bill crossed with Buffy, only that would make it sound like more than the slapdash, thrill-less dud that it is.

Every scrap of footage here has been done better somewhere else.

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

Unexciting, incoherent, lamely acted, and carelessly written.
