8/10: Blade
Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Title: BladeDirected by: Stephen Norrington Storyline: We start off in a hospital with a pregnant woman being rushed in while covered in blood. She goes into labour while the doctors and nurses are trying to treat her, they perform a C section to take the child out. We are then introduced to a CONI (Character of no importance) as him and a vampire are driving through the city to get to a vampire nightclub/rave. But just as Blade shows up the music and sprinklers stop as everyone realizes that Blade has crashed their party, one guy tries to take him on but is shot with a silver spike before making it past the crowd. Blade opens fire on the ravers and starts killing them all one by one, until he runs out of ammo. This is where the other toys come into play. We see Quinn get set on fire regardless. He is then taken to the morgue where...

10/10: The best vampire slaying movie ever my number one favorite Blade film
Friday, October 30, 2015

Blade (1998) is the best action/horror vampire slaying movie ever made! I always have enjoyed watching Blade. My number one favorite Blade film I love this film to death. It is one of the best action sci-fi films of all time. Wesley Snipes best role till it's days ever! No one can play Blade like Wesley Snipes did! Blade is not an origin story, but it is a real world of darkness. Blade is just so bad and anti-hero which is perfect for the world he drives in. It is my favorite comic book Vampire movie. I love this film, I love the action and I love everything in it! I love Wesley Snipes and Kris Kris Kristofferson so much they have such a chemistry between each other. Wesley Snipes Kicks ass!!!!! This is the most super hero Vampire slayer film ever made! It is been so long since I last watch this film. I kept...

7/10: Very stylish and entertaining
Saturday, October 15, 2005

It seems to me that a lot of people don't know that Blade is actually a superhero movie on par with X-Men, Daredevil, Punisher and the likes. What all these heroes (and in the case of X-Men hero group) have in common is that they were all conceived in the magical world of Marvel. Blade was originally a normal person (in a blue outfit) who chased vampires because of a personal grudge and eventually facing of with Dracula himself and he was for lack of a better word boring. So boring in fact that the character was shelved and in fact never used in the Marvel universe. At least until he was reinvented.David Goyer did a stroke of genius when he took the character of Blade and turned him into a leather clad dark knight. He can't take all the credit though and much of this must go to Stephen Norrington as well who with...

10/10: Excellent vampire action
Monday, August 9, 1999

I gave this movie a "10" and I feel it is my duty to explain why. It is important first of all to realize what this movie is and what is not. It is an action movie, it is not a masterful exploration of the human condition. "Blade" is right up there as my favorite action movie of all time, with the possible exceptions of "The Rock" and "The Matrix". It does everything an action movie needs to do and then some: it has a fast-moving plot, engaging characters who drive the plot rather than bog it down, it creates a desire in the viewer for the good guy to win, and this last it does better than in any other movie I've ever seen, it creates a pulse-pounding visual experience. Another way in which "Blade" goes above and beyond is in its having a "gimmick", if you will. Just as "The Rock" had that awful poison...

6/10: A palatable offering of Snipes and dice
Sunday, January 17, 1999

Blade is everything Spawn wanted to be and wasn't. While Spawn was a loud, obnoxious, incoherent mess that should have stayed in Hell with its erstwhile hero, Blade is a relatively subdued (it's nice to actually hear the soundtrack), stylish, well-directed movie that actually tries to build empathy and pathos into the characters. While both are adaptations from comic-books, only one is a page-turner.Blade, or Eric as his mom calls him, but which superhero would command respect with the name Eric, is half-man, half-vampire, made so by his mother, who survived a vampire attack long enough to give birth to him. This gives Blade a certain edge in his understandable grudge against vampires, "all of our strengths and none of our weaknesses" as his main vampire nemesis attests. The aforementioned nemesis is Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) who wants to unleash a vampire apocalypse on the world, decrying the Mafia-type approach that...
