Blood: The Last Vampire

Got myself a Korean DVD (probably bootleg) of this live-action film based on the Production I.G. animated short. I loved the anime, so I was really hoping to like this new movie. I have to say, as biased as I was, I really enjoyed it! It was shot mostly in English, and the large cast of American actors playing the inhabitants of the U.S. Army base in the movie were actually decent actors, instead of the usual Godzilla-movie-bad variety. The film did a good job of taking the promising beginning that the anime gave and creating a larger story from it without getting too confusing. Jeon Ji-hyun (aka Gianna for U.S. audiences) as Sawa the ageless demon-hunter was believeable as a cool calm undead-asskicker, though the swordplay scenes didn't always giver her a chance to prove it. The CGI was very hit-or-miss...the creatures were cheesy, but the gore and bloodsprays were stylish and pretty. One action scene that was particularly enjoyable was a swordfight on a truck as it falls down a ravine. Overall, a fun time!

I am not a huge fan of anime or cartoon type movies, so I haven't seen many. The original Heavy Metal is really cool, I watched one called Barefoot Gen, it was about the bombings at Nagasaki and Hiroshima. It had lots of gore and radiation aftermath on people. it was a very good movie if you haven't seen it, check it out, it is a good watch. check ya laterLaughing

No more anime to live action movies.  Blood was a classic anime with great design and attention to detail.  The movie was garbage.  especially the blood scenes.
