Wesley Snipes is "Crouching Half-Vampire, Fancy Killer Sword". It is the Marvel movie that could never be made today because the action is just too intense for Disney.

One of Snipes best roles. He plays Blade as a snarky, bdazz, kckazz, no bz character. Violent, dark and horror filled, funny, ridiculous, and awesome fight sequences make this one of the best comic book character movies ever made (better than deadpool and made 16 yrs earlier)

Wesley Snipes is Blade! He's a half-vampire, half-human, all butt kicking vampire hunter. I don't expect too much from my action movies, so I enjoyed this. The original cut ran 140 minutes and even at 120 minutes, it's still a bit too long. Kris Kristofferson, Stephen "Call Me Dorff" Dorff, and Udo Kier co-star. No doubt the "Underworld" series took a few notes from this. Followed by two sequels, of which the second, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is the best. Based on a comic.

This movie's exciting action sequences and exploration of vampire lore make this an entertaining flick. Though Blade still may not be the comic book character to read, the movie is still entertaining enough on its own merits to keep it around. And at the very least it will stand as a marker for the following renaissance of comic book movies.

Deacon Frost: Maybe it's time we forgot about discretion. We should be ruling the humans, not running around making back ally treaties with them. For f**ks sake, these people are our food, not our allies.
