Many fans of the books have heavily voiced out how obviously this movie has no connection what’s so ever to the Manga.
The film is set in an altered Earth, where vampires and humans have fought a war for centuries. But the book jumped from different time periods, from biblical to modern while the core of the story was set in the old west.
In the books, Ivan Isaacs was portrayed a priest that turned into a demon possessed undead creature after he saw members of the vatican killed the woman he loved, his adopted sister. In the film he’s a mortal priest/vampire-hunter searching for his niece.
The books had him face a multitude of enemies such as: criminals of the old west, demons, zombies, unnatural assassins from the vatican, fallen and mutant angels. The main antogonist was a fallen angel called Temozarela. There were no vampires in the books. However, The film’s antagonists are only vampires (similar to the video game DarkWatch) led by someone who was a priest called Black Hat.
They say it’s based off the books, but so far only the title has remained unchanged. This looks more like a story that was attached to the book just for the sake it would get a better chance of being made and get the money from Hollywood. Truly the story and characters could stand on it’s own without any connection to the comics.
I think I would like this movie for fun, but I hate it how they lie about it’s connections to the books. Even the creator has to make a new book that has nothing to do with the previous ones just so it can some how be able stay true to their promotion that it’s based off the books. If this was a faithful adaptation, the Vatican would be pissed off.
