Blood: The Last Vampire 

Directed by Chris Nahon (Sony Pictures)

Blood: The Last Vampire is a live-action adaptation of an anime of the same name. The movie expands on the anime's plot but fails to add any deeper meaning or themes to the story of Saya, a half-human, half-vampire demon killer. Then again, when the main selling point of a film is the "kickass schoolgirls" (as promised by both the cover art and blurb), deeper themes were probably never high on film creators' to-do list. The fights that take their cues from Hong Kong "wuxia" movies are well-choreographed and enjoyable, but CGI blood and monsters mar the rest.
