This is what it's about:  On the surface, Saya is a stunning 16-year-old, 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, all the while knowing that she herself can survive only on blood like those she hunts. When she is sent onto an American military base in Tokyo by the clandestine organization she works for, Saya immediately senses that this may be her opportunity to finally destroy Onigen, the evil patriarch of all vampires. Using her superhman strength and her sword, she begins to rid the base of its evil infestation in a series of spectacular and elaborate showdowns. However, it is not until she forms her first human friendship in centuries with the young daughter of the base’s general that Saya learns of her greatest power over Onigen may well be her ability for human connection…

This move was basically made for me.  It's got everything that I love in it: vampires, lesbian subtext, cool fight scenes, lesbian subtext, vampires, swords, cool (if sometimes a little over done) action sequences, hotass female villians, lesbian subtext, a dreamy protector in the vein of Ivy Tamwood, spunky heroines, people flying from trees, blood sharing ... you know, all that good stuff.

The movies not brilliant, but I found it entertaining, and I really liked the relationship between Saya and Alice (Alice is like totes the new go-to name for hot chicks isn't it?)  If you liked the things I listed above, then you'll probably at least reasonably enjoy this movie.

And now ... picspam to further pimp the thing!

This is Saya (pronouced Si-ah, not Say-a like you'd think).  She is awesomeness personified.  Not only does her outfit make her look cute as button, this fabulous bitch walks around with a sword strapped to her back, and she has a dreamy ass protective streak that would make Ivy Tamwood proud.  She is also a vampire, which instantly makes me her hot like fire!

This is Michelle Benjamin Alice McKee.  She is a dumb girl with heart of gold, who gets into trouble fighting for justice and truth.  She's Saya's blood bitch the damsel in distress that Saya must save ... and oodles of chemistry with.

This is Colin Salmon.  He was in Resident Evil.  He died.  Now he's in this.  Doesn't he have lovely bone-structure?

This is an evil bitch.

This is the bitch's equally bitchy friend.

Both of them are full of fail.

This is a poor man's Jean Reno.  He is Saya's handler, and like the one non-douchey member of the super sekret Council that Saya works with (cause they are actually her blood bitches).

This is a hotass villain.  She is fierce as hell, and I loved her.

This is Saya and Alice being total lesbians.   I approve.

This is Saya's sword.  Her first love, but as the picture of her and Alice above proves, NOT her last love.

This is a link to a surprisingly good cam copy of the movie (not shaky, could see everything that was happening on screen, not lopsided, and no people walking in front of the camera every five seconds).

Change the xx to tt to download. 

Also, be warned, there are no subtitles for the flashback scenes.  Most of the movie is in English though, so you wont' miss too much, and I was able to tell what was happening in the flashbacks even without subtitles.

Edited because it seems the link works fine.  Yes!
