"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

A half-mortal, half-immortal is out to avenge his mother's death and rid the world of vampires. The modern-day technologically advanced vampires he is going after are in search of his special blood type needed to summon an evil god who plays a key role in their plan to execute the human race.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Not only is this an important movie for comic book films in general – it's just a f---ing blast! " – Chris Stuckmann
  • " 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
  • " For a while, anyway, this vampire picture flies. " – Jay Boyar
