When Blade’s mother was bitten by a vampire during pregnancy, she did not know that she gave her son a special gift while dying: All the good vampire attributes in combination with the best human skills. Blade grew up to be a vampire hunter for revenge on his mother’s death. —Film Affinity
Not a movie that required a 120 minute runtime - a brisker pace during the latter two acts could have cemented this as a 5-star flick - but one gets the sense that "Blade" should have announced the arrival of director Stephen Norrington as a major voice in genre cinema. Norrington handles this pre-"Matrix," pre-"X-Men" superhero flick with aplomb; there's a confidence to the film and its dark 'n dirty atmosphere that is not unlike Alex Proyas' "The Crow." Wesley Snipes appears to be both intensely acting and not acting at the same time, exuding a kind of cavalier badass that is distinctly refreshing: Snipes is probably the only action star, and Blade the only superhero, who could get away with responding "What the fuck?! Are you outta your damn mind?!" after the police open fire on him. In fact, it's one of the best moments of the entire film!
That's how a super hero should be,he actually kill the bad guys!It was fucking FUN
