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.

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.

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

Awesome carnage and fight scenes have no idea how close to the anime it is at all.

I liked the fight scenes. Trying to figure out who was the bad guys and who was the good guys was quite difficult. Maybe if I watch it three times.

This was a really good attempt at a very cool story. The fight scenes were really quite fun to watch. The girl that played Saya did a bang-up job. The computer… More

It contains good martial arts and cool storytelling, and it turns the vampire genre on its ear. This film based on the popular anime movie is good regardless of… More
