Blood - The Last Vampire

"On the surface, 'Saya' (played by Jun Ji Hyun aka Gianna Jun) is a 16 year old teenage girl, but that youthful exterior hides the tormented soul of a 400 year old 'halfling'. Born to a human father and a vampire mother, she has for centuries been a loner obsessed with using her samurai skills to rid the world of vampires. She can survive only on blood like those she hunts. When Saya is sent onto an American military base in Tokyo by a secret organisation 'Council' she works for, she immediately senses that this may be her opportunity to destroy Onigen, the evil patriarch of all vampires (Synopsis from Yahoo! Movies Singapore)."

Finally watched the movie yesterday. Although the plot is not that good, I enjoyed all the action scenes in the movie. I also felt a little disappointed when the female lead 'Saya' fought against her vampire mother "Onigen" in the ending. She can easily defeat Onigen within a few minutes but she fought very hard to rid the Onigen's henchman. Anyway, the movie is still enjoyable and my overall rating is 3/5.
