The other "Blood" movie
24 January 2010 | by (Manassas, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This mix of sex, vampires and martial arts seems like it will be a decent (if clichéd) vampire pic until the appearance of the first "wire-fu" sequence. Some fairly steamy sex and a scene in which a nude girl is bound and murdered establish an adult tone that is ruined when characters suddenly begin to fight like they're in The Matrix or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It's as if the director (who also did Shinobi: Heart Under Blade) really wanted to make a martial arts flick with plenty of sword fights, but since he had Aya Sugimoto (star of the erotic Flower & Snake films), he was obliged to throw in some gratuitous T&A. The script is extremely predictable, and the characters (with the exception of Sugimoto's young female servant) are unlikeable and keep spouting the same tired lines about how miserable it is to have eternal life. There are also some dodgy computer effects - when a character gets hit by a car and tossed into the air, you'll definitely laugh (the CG effect was like something out of Shaolin Soccer). The are some good points: the movie is well-lensed (Sugimoto usually picks projects that at least have good production values) and the wire work isn't bad, if that's your thing. I wouldn't be surprised if this gets fast-tracked for a North American release, since it's the kind of thing that seems to sell over here.
