"It's like a vampire movie, but better"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's always nice to discover an old classic, something that still tells a valid story with today's lens. Blade is a movie like that – sure, it's a vampire movie, but it's not cheesy and hasn't dated in the same way many of its peer movies have.

At its core, Blade is based on a comic book vampire hunter who has many of a vampire's cha­racteristics. Blade (the central character of this same-titled movie) is not your standard Van Helsing type of vampire killer – he's hard, brutal, and brings a level of ferocity normally reserved only for vampires to us on us.

It levels the playing field.

The start of this movie is truly amazing – the underground dance club within a slaughterhouse is a touch of brilliance, and Wesley Snipes' martial arts skills are well on display in this excellently choreographed sce­ne.

If you like vampire movies – titles like Underworld – then you'll love this one. It's brilliant, polished and refined as a visceral experience.

Description

Blade

Against an army of Immortals, one warrior must draw first blood.

He has sworn to defend humanity yet he is not entirely human. He possesses the superhuman strength of vampires yet he fights for their annihilation. He is Blade, an immortal warrior born with powers greater than any man or vampire, and he has just one mission: to destroy an army of vampires preying on the human race. Blade is out to eliminate the blood thirsty killers for good, but first he must eliminate their omnipotent overlord, Deacon Frost. Using his awesome powers and razor sharp weaponry, Blade steps out for the night of his life. Prepare for a blood chilling thriller you wouldn't dare imagine.

Critic Reviews:

  • " In so many ways Blade was made for today: for today's politics, for today's television screens, and for today's margi­nalized audiences. " – Sezín Koehler
  • " I found it fascinating how Blade works through a lot of that nastiness in its own way. " – VyceVictus
  • " Blade's stomach-turning special effects, bone-crunching martial arts and cynical humor will more than satisfy any action-film addict's need for a fix of eye-popping escapist adrenaline. " – Michael O'Sullivan
