Live action adaptation of the 2000 Japanese anime. Jeong Ji-Hyeon stars as Saya, a beautiful half-human, half-vampire who works for a clandestine government agency set up to hunt down and destroy demons in post-WWII Japan. When she is sent undercover into an American military base in Tokyo, Saya senses that this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to destroy Onigen (Koyuki), the evil matriarch of all vampires. Using her superhuman strength and her samurai sword, Saya begins to eliminate the base of its evil infection in a series of ever more elaborate showdowns. But when she becomes friends with Sharon (Masiela Lusha), the young daughter of the base's general, she realises that her greatest power over Onigen may in fact be her ability to connect with humans.

It is beautifully filmed, very well acted (at least by the Japanese actors), has a pretty good soundtrack and stays pretty much true to the original. My recommendation - BUY IT - but it's not for children!
The story is set around and American Air Base located in Japan, during the Vietnam War.
Its main character is a Japanese girl named Saya, who relentlessly hunts blood sucking Oni(Oni: in japanese is translated as demon in english).
Saya is a 400-year-old half breed who hunts other demons. Raised by her father's retainer a man named Kato, she works loosely with an organization known as "The Council" while seeking out Onigen, the highest oldest and strongest of all the beasts.
Seeking clues about Onigen, Saya transfers to a school near the Yokota Air Base.
Normally a loner, Saya forms a friendship with a young girl named Alice (Allison Miller), whom she rescues from some vampires.
This live action production is very impressive adaptation and includes spectacular battles involving katana's and fights with superhatural beings.
The picture is an improvement in comparison to the original anime. The plot is slightly altered in comparison however overall I find the production exceeding the original anime.
Most importantly the Japanese cast are really japanese looking and not caucasians something that has been a real annoyance on other Japanese titles that have been Hollywoodized (eg. dead or alive or Dragonballz)
The killing was witnessed by the general's daughter, who she now protects. The goal of her killing vampire demons to to lure out the master vampire demon and kill it. There is one scene which reminds me of Kill Bill where she fights against a large horde of demons while saving the girl.
The movie is no where in depth as is Kill Bill. Yes, Saya wears that school girl outfit pictured on the cover for much of the movie. But unlike other Japanese school girl vampire movies this one has no nudity or sex.
Wow! What a surprise this was. About half of the speech is in English, so the subtitles are less intrusive than you'd think. Full of dark, shadowed corners, lashings of spurting globular blood, limbs loped off, people sliced in half, this is typical Manga fare. Featuring women with swords, lots of demons, more demons and some fine special effects, it creates a credible alternate past from the start. The dark dry humour means this should not be taken entirely seriously as it pays homage to many well known movies and scenes from other endeavours.
The single disc offers play, scene select, extras [featurettes on the actors, photo gallery, trailer, manga trailer] and set up [English subtitles on/off, audio description].
There is no nudity or sex and only one instance of severe swearing [with a few minor words] but the gore and martial arts violence places this firmly as an 18. If you like Japanese Manga type movies with over the top violence like ‘Machine Girl’, ‘Tokyo Gore Police’ or ‘Hard Revenge Milly’, then you’ll love this so get the popcorn out and sit back, but if you want realistic action, then look elsewhere.
When I first heard of this movie in the works, I didn't know what to think. Until I saw the first released trailer online and was blown away mindlessly! After that, I couldn't eagerly wait for this movie, as I noted down so many movies to be released this 2009, X-men Origins too etc.
I finally saw this movie at the cinema day of opening. But I'm here to review the Blu-Ray version.
This Blu-Ray version is awesome, I enjoyed the movie at the cinema but enjoyed it more with this Blu-Ray version.
The picture quality is TOP NOTCH! It's so sharp, and the extensive use of the colour toning was so damn awesome. It made part of the scenes feel like how it should be in years, like the Air base feels like 60s/70s like, the delusion effect used by Onigen, the alley battle etc. In the cinema, the use of blood effect felt so ridiculous stupid, but with in HD, it looked alright and nothing to complain. In the cinema, the true forms of the demon was lame, but in HD, they looked AMAZING! You wouldn't even know it's CG but think it's a prop.
Sound effects were sick too, you won't be disappointed.
As for the features, well, I was disappointed with the features in this movie, because of the bad reviews this movie got, developers/publishers didn't spend time on extra features. Though the menu design is nice.
A lot of people didn't like this movie because of the story adaptation for this movie. Once again, people do not understand adaptation development. Just because you are making a movie out of a video game let's say Resident Evil 1.Read more ›
