Highly Entertaining Adventure
In 1970, the four hundred year-old skilled samurai Saya (Gianna Jun) is sent to the Kanto High School in an American military base in Tokyo by the Council, a secret society that has been hunting vampires for centuries. Saya has the appearance of a teenager but is the tormented half-breed creature with the soul of her human father and the powers and need of blood of her vampire mother. She is obsessed to face the powerful demon Onigen (Koyuki) that killed her father. In the base, Saya saves Alice McKee (Allison Miller), who is the daughter of General McKee (Larry Lamb) and commander of the base, from the attack of several vampires. When General McKee is killed by a member of the Council, Alice runs to the hotel where Saya is lodged. They join forces and go to the countryside to chase Onigen.
“Blood: The Last Vampire” is a highly entertaining adventure. The screenplay and the choreography of the fights blend many other movies and there is no originality. However, it works basically because of Gianna Jun and Allison Miller that perform very likable and charismatic characters. In the end, this film is not a masterpiece but I liked what I have seen. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Caçadores de Vampiros” (“Vampire Hunters”)
Better than I expected.
I finally got to see the one movie I have been waiting and counting the days for: BLOOD: The Last Vampire.
(SPOILERS WITHIN) Jeon Ji-Hyun, going by Gianna, was definitely the best thing about this movie. I couldn’t believe that this was her first English movie and action movie. What amazes me even more is that she is Korean, but she spoke both English and Japanese so well, and was able to portray the correct emotions when speaking in languages foreign to her. This girl poured her blood, sweat, and tears into this role and it shows. Anyone who says her acting was bad needs to watch one of Paris Hilton’s movies.
The action scenes were brilliantly choreographed. I loved Saya’s fight in the alley, and I loved Kato’s fighting in the forest; one of my favorite things about that fight, was when Saya just plowed through those demons with nothing really driving her but her grief and her desire to save the man who raised her.
People have complained about the script. I think they seemed to forget that this was a popcorn action flick. They almost seemed like they were expecting something so thought provoking. I don’t really understand when they say “cheesy lines”. The script was normal for this kind of movie. Watch the original anime movie and there isn’t a lot of spoken dialogue. Both movies were meant to show off the action scenes, and they did their jobs very well.
I really don’t understand why this movie has received so much negative criticism. Yes, the CGI demon was bad, but that was about it. It wasn’t even that bad when it was moving/fighting. And the CGI blood? Even my 54-year-old mother understood the point of that was to show the difference between human blood and demon blood (which is black) In the scenes where some of the human characters were shot, they had normal blood splats.
Comparing the online bootleg I watched and what I saw here in an American cinema, things were very different. In the online bootleg, almost all of the really gory scenes were cut; from memory, Linda’s head being sliced off, Saya splitting a guy in two, Saya cutting a guys neck and then kicking it off, Kato’s fingers being sliced off. They also left out a scene where Onigen and her retainer were all dressed up and leaving the onsen. Koyuki’s voice was also left intact.
In the version I saw here in the states, a huge goof happened right in the In the beginning; after Saya leaves the Council behind to clean up Saya’s kill, we are shown her already at her hotel room, frantically downing a bottle of blood and she’s already wearing her school uniform, which she hadn’t received yet. We then see her walking to the hotel back in her normal clothes.
A scene during Saya’s alley fight was completely cut out. It’s the scene where she is fighting to big black demons with afro’s. I’m assuming it was cut out for PC reasons, but I am kind of happy they did that just because there is a point in the scene where Saya jump kicks one of the demons in the neck, and it is so badly edited. I mean, think back to 50 and 60’s fantasy/action movies and how fake the monsters looked when edited into the movie.
Another thing I am happy about is that either they dubbed Koyuki or she was brought back in to redo her lines. Her English was pretty bad, at some points not even being able to understand her.
One thing I am disappointed about is how small of a role they gave to Sharon, who was the main villain in the original anime. We don’t even get to see how Saya took her out.
Ending this review, I have to say that I liked this movie even more than I thought I would. I would say I loved it, even. This is a movie that you have to see and judge for yourself, and take other opinions on the movie with a grain of salt; really, don’t miss this movie just because of a few bad reviews (and hey! Ebert gave it a 3 out of 4 stars!)
