    Blood: The Last Vampire is a short, 45-minute anime that is consequently big on action, slim on everything else. We follow the last vampire, a government agent tasked with clearing a U.S. army base in post-War Japan of monstrous, shape-shifting infiltrators. The movie is chock full of cool action beats and effective horror and gore moments, but leaves a lot of the setting's background ambiguous. I don't dislike that, but a longer running time might have helped illuminate some of the potentially niggling mysteries. Saya's vampirism isn't explicit for example, and one gets the sense that she has some relationship to the creatures she's killing. The mention of the Vietnam War seems to imply the monsters are influencing international events, but that too is left open-ended. It doesn't help that Blood did spin out into a couple series, but these are alternate takes on the concept, not sequels. But it's a wild ride while it lasts, even if you don't think it lasts quite long enough, with great lighting and animation, although turn-of-the-Millennium CG backgrounds are always distracting to me. 4 years 7 months ago
