Blood: The Last Vampire Reviews
People unfamiliar with the material already will likely turn it off before the first act is done.
Especially the CG.
To be honest there isn't really anything here you haven't seen before, it has a kind of 'Blade' feel to it during the first half of the film with some very very nice sword fights resulting in lots of demon vampire deaths and plenty of the red stuff flying about :) the action is smooth and cool with the heroine vampire of the film in a cliched Japanese school girl outfit much like many old Capcom 2D beat em up characters from back in the day hehe and harking to Kill Bill atad too.
As said the first half is pretty sweet despite some VERY shitty cgi demon action going on. It all tends to fall apart in the second half really, the plot gets alittle confusing and it becomes like so many Eastern action flicks with lots of sword fighting martial arts in slow mo with plenty of high wire flying about (think 'Crouching Tiger' etc.. )
From 'Blade' with a cute half vampire half human dressed as a school girl to the usual fable, fantasy, Eastern flying about the place with swords nonsense, shame. And I gotta say..the cgi does ruin the film too, its baaaaad.
Interesting fight scenes, though nothing special, except for the forest scene. Quite messy and a bit all over the place, the visuals were dodgy, like plasticine figures last seen in movies from the lae 90's.
Anyways - I dont get how my lady friend got me to watch this, its a chick flick for chicks who are fans of horror and blood. But yeah.... moving on.
It's utterly terrible. I don't even want to write anything for it.
Should you happen to find yourself intrigued by either version, ignore them both and rent Blade instead. You'll thank me.
