This proves once again that any Asian masterpiece cannot be handled by Westerners because they just simply don’t get the Asian’s art. My first ultimate disappointment this year was Dragonball Evolution and now this is another.
Blood the Last Vampire is a movie adapted from a famous Japanese Animation movie of the same name. I’m not really sure how to describe this but to plainly put the movie is a very poor imitation of the anime. Well, I think it starts with the effect for me. I guess they didn’t poor enough budget on it or they didn’t intend to do so. Either way, the whole battles, slashing, blood shedding, slow motion thing all appear very much second class. As for the plot I didn’t really care .Since I’ve already seen the anime version, I already know what’s it’s about and what’s going to happen. Hence once the visual effect is not there, there’s really nothing to much to see.
