ReviewSource Dread Central
Review I have to give props to the people behind Shira the Vampire Samurai just for the sheer ambition to make such a fight-a-riffic female Blade knock-off on what is clearly a low budget. The stunt work and fight choreography - often clunky and appearing overtly rehearsed - is still head and shoulders above what I'm used to seeing in such low budget movies of this variety. You certainly cannot complain about the film not having enough action because, aside from one stretch during the midsection, the film can't seem to go five minutes without erupting into a kung fu battle or a sword fight. And they're not short fights either. Most last several minutes at time; many involve multiple characters battling one another. Compared to last year's similar yet infinitely worse Vampire Assassin, Shira the Vampire Samurai is quite inspired. It's a shame it couldn't maintain that inspiration throughout...By no means is this a good movie, but that isn't to say it's not without some entertainment value. It's just that the majority of its entertainment value comes from its schlocky nature, and that sense of B-movie fun is constantly being undercut by repetitious action scenes, a wet drip of a title character, and a nothing story.
