BLOOD THE LAST VAMPIRE
DVD Review by David Blackwell
 
DETAILS:  89 minutes, two featurettes
VIDEO:  2.35:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)
AUDIO:  English/ Jaspanese 5.1 Dolby Digitsl
Subtitles:  English, French
 
STUDIO:  SPHE/ Destination Films/ East Wing Holdings Corp/ SAJ/ Beijing Happy Pictures/ Cultural Communications Co LTD/ Production I.G.
RELEASE DATE:  10-20-2009

Saya (Gianna) is a half-human/ half-vampire who has hunted vampires for 400 yeras in search of the powerful vampire Onigen who killed her father.   Her hunt brings her to 1970s Japan.   She ends up saving Alice McKee, the daughter of a US Air Force General, first inside a school on a US military base.    Saya lives for revenge and kill the demons to get to Onigen.

BLOOD THE LAST VAMPIRE is a live action adaptation of the BLOOD+ anime.  The film mixes English with Japanese dialogue.   It tells the story of Saya from her origins to the end of her quest.   Gianna rocks as Saya in the latest film in the attractive girl kicks evil butt/ horror action film genre.   The action sequences are the drawing point of this film.  The back story and characters could have been more developed.  BLOOF THE LAST VAMPIRE could have used 20 to 30 more minutes develop the story. 

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Two making-of featurettes are included on the DVD-
The Making-Of featurette features interviews with cast and crew while BATTLING DEMONS goes into detail about the stuntwork including behind-the-scenes training footage and the bumps that Gianna went through while filming (including hitting a camer mounted ona crane).
 
The theatrical trailer is missing (a trailer for BLOOD+ is on the disc).
 
FINAL ANALYSIS:  BLOOD THE LAST VAMPIRE is one to see for the action.   Just wish the story was more fleshed out.
