A blood chilling, action-packed thriller about modern day vampires unlike any previously encountered. Wesley Snipes is Blade, the ultimate vampire hunter, and immortal warrior who possesses the superhuman strength and cunning of a vampire but shares none of their weakness.

Able to walk by day and stalk by night, Blade must confront his ultimate adversary, the omnipotent vampire overlord Deacon Frost, Stephen Dorff, who is intent on leading an underground legion of vampires to conquer mankind. Blade must use his awesome powers and razor-sharp weaponry like never before to prevent the annihilation of the entire human race.

Blade is right up there in my top 5 film of all time. I love every second of this film. The opening is one of the best on cinema history, its just so damn COOL!! Back when I first watched this film for the first time I knew nothing about Blades character or story but I was completely hooked for the entire film.

Wesley Snipes is brilliant in this role and once you have seen it you really can't picture anyone else being able to play this character as well as he can. Stephen Dorff is also excellent in his role. This is in my opinion the best vampire film ever made. Don't miss out on it!

 "..FANGTASTIC.."

This is just brilliant ! The night clube scene at the start is a classic movie moment, at the time nothing like it had ever been seen before. People always state that The Matrix created Bullit -Time, they are wrong, this movie did it a year before. The action is brilliant, giving way to John Woo style shoot-outs and fights. All the action is set around a techno soundtrack and sends the action into another dimention. Wesly Snipes is a revalation as Blade and creates the coolest movie character in years. Dorf is a good villan as the evil vampire wanting to take over by raising the blood god. The vampire culture is explored, and using there own language and markings creates a very unsettleing underworld. Also look out for the brilliant creation Pearl, a Jabba like vampire that should join wait watchers. The only reason I marked the film down to 4 stars is the ending, with the flying skulls, it feels out of place with the rest of the film and should belong in Raiders of the lost ark, and not this lean mean killing machine of a movie. This is a very minor gripe as the rest of the film is just sheer eye scorching brilliance.
A must buy !

 'Blade' reveals the darker side of Marvel...

'Blade' kicks off in quite stunning style with the lovely Traci Lords leading an 'innocent' young man into a warehouse. Inside, a party is taking place with loud music pumping from the speakers. And then it happens....the sprinklers kick in and literally bathe the partygoers in thick, red blood revealing them for what they really are - blood sucking vampires. And then Blade turns up and proceeds to kick ass in quite astonishing style. Back in 1998 when I first watched 'Blade' I knew little about his character and backstory but my eyes were instantly glued to the screen the second this kung-fu kicking, sword wielding badass turned up. Taking the vampire mythology and giving it a modern boost by way of Shaft results in a fantastic slice of action adventure. As the half man/half vampire Daywalker Wesley Snipes is perfectly cast, certainly not the most loquacious of fellows but damn...he sure is one cool mutha. Steven Norrington (who went on to direct the less-than-successful adaptation of 'The League of Extraordinary Gentleman') here cuts loose with an action packed film of great style and originality. Some of the effects are beginning to show their age (though the film is nearly 10 years old) but the film itself heralds a fantastic debut for one of Marvel's lesser-known creations as well as a pulse-pounding action film in its own right...
