Kawajiri's doom-laden action epic is a heady brew indeed.
75
The animation is rich and densely detailed, the characters well defined.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A genre pastiche that's fun to watch, although it's also frustrating.

New York Daily News
Beautiful, witty and provocative, this is one genre film that ought to appeal to fans and non-fans alike.

Austin Chronicle
As usual with anime features, just because it's animated doesn't mean it's for kids; heads roll and blood spurts, so know that going in, mom and dad. For the older crowd, though, it's gory and gorgeous bliss.
67
Exciting, gory, funny and, like much of anime, a bit cheesy.

Boston Globe
Confusing storytelling and bad dialogue.

New York Post
The film looks nifty, but the flat and unemotional English-language dialogue lessens its impact.

Baltimore Sun
Fans of anime probably will find Vampire Hunter D plenty thrilling. Non-fans, or those not familiar with the genre, will enjoy the film's gothic atmosphere, but may wonder what all the fuss is about.

It's a must-see for horror buffs and anime fans; and while it lacks the haunting thematic underpinnings of "Blood The Last Vampire," -- it's a more satisfying movie-going experience.
