She is obsessed to face the powerful demon Onigen that killed her father. In the base, Saya saves Alice McKee, who is the daughter of General McKee and commander of the base, from the attack of several vampires. When General McKee is killed by a member of the Council, Alice runs to the hotel where Saya is lodged. They join forces and go to the countryside to chase Onigen.Written by

In May 2006, Bill Kong announced that he was producing a live-action film adaptation of Blood: The Last Vampire, directed by Ronny Yu. Like the source anime, it would be primarily filmed in English rather than Japanese. Kong and Yu originally planned to finance the project themselves, but in November 2006, Production I.G officially consented to the film and began offering financial support. Rather than being paid a straight license, Production I.G will receive a percentage of all revenues generated by the film. Through ties to Manga Entertainment, the French company Pathe became the film's co-production company, joining the Hong Kong-based Edko. Yu was retained as its producer, but Chris Nahon took over as the film's director. See more »

The story is based on the much acclaimed animae Blood. Being based on that and not have read the animae I can't really go into some issues. For example, the way the showed blood is done mostly with the use of CGI and in a special way. So if that's how it was shown in the book than it's okay. Some will hate it because monsters are done in CGI and weren't that good sometimes, it reminded me of Van Helsing and Legion were too many CGI tear the movie down. Still, they tried to kept the gore in it with real effects and the use of CGI. Of course the fights are done in Asian way, a bit like The Matrix. But that's so typical for Asian flicks. But the story enjoyed me and I was attracted to the screen the whole time. The use of English and Eastern language made it even more realistic. I liked it but I can understand that some will hate it due the CGI.
