Blood: The Last Vampire

  • Film

Time Out says

Purportedly Japan's first fully digitally animated feature - although 'featurette' seems more accurate - this Team Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) effort is intermittently a marvel of computer generated and/or processed visuals. Much of the imagery has a spookily redolent industrial texture - witness the opening scenes of a desolate underground train line - yet much of it is flat and static. The story about a secret service hunt for shape-changing demons set on an American army base in Japan over Halloween 1966 is thick with cliché and po-faced exposition; and just when it's getting somewhere, the film ends.
