Blood: The Last Vampire

Critics Consensus

Based on a classic anime series, Blood: The Last Vampire is a tedious, shoddily acted, amateurish picture that loses all charm in the transition to live-action.

Movie Info

Saya (Gianna) looks like an ordinary teenager on the outside, but on the inside, she's a 400-year-old half-human, half-vampire swordfighter who's made it her mission to exterminate vampires. Sent to an American military base in Tokyo, Saya learns that she may finally have a chance to destroy Onigen, the evil vampire leader. But when she forms a friendship with the daughter of the base's commander, she realizes that her ability to bond with humans may be her greatest weapon against Onigen.

  • This live-action adaptation of Hiroyuki Kitakubo's popular anime one-off from 2000 appears to have been made by a company of finches tweeting, "Cheap...cheap."

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Blood: The Last Vampire

    Won't you just look at the CGI? Blood: The Last Vampire is a silly live action adaptation of the anime film of the same name. A half blooded vampire hunts other vampires in Japan, she was sent to a military base to help get rid off the vampires causing trouble. She formed friendship with another girl and with her help they must defeat the leader of all vampires. It's utterly terrible. I don't even want to write anything for it.

    Blood: The Last Vampire is a daring and bold horror film that's packed with action. Adapted from an anime film, the story follows a half-vampire named Saya who seeks to avenge her father by killing the vampire that slayed him. The storytelling is fairly solid (except for the last act) and it has an interesting vampire lore. Additionally, the fight choreography is particularly good, and has a uniqueness to it. However, the CGI is rather weak and doesn't quite pull off the surrealism that it appears to be going for. Visually captivating and stylistic, Blood: The Last Vampire is an impressive film that delivers exciting action and a compelling story.
