Lameness on a low budget scale
9 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Vampires, fight scenes inspired by the Underworld films and a leading actress who shows her boobs a lot. That's about all you're going to get out of BLOOD, a low budget and derivative little movie that doesn't know what it wants to be. There are gun fights, repetitive sex scenes that seem tacked on to market this as an erotic thriller, a little detective work and, of course, some vampires. These vampires are of the overly familiar and utterly predictable type, although they seem happy to wander around in the daylight to no ill effect.

BLOOD is a low budget movie and it shows. The action scenes incorporate some disappointing CGI effects which make you laugh rather than gasp at the on-screen antics. The worst thing, though, is the script, which fails to make any sense of the disparate story elements. It seems that the scriptwriter is content to emulate throughout, but there's no world-building here, no conviction in the depiction of centuries-old vampires. The romantic scenes are laughable and the cast bad, and all of these detractions end up making this one a bit of a bomb, a Japanese film that copies Hollywood way too much without working out a style of its own.
