Overview

Marvel Comics broke new ground with an African-American superhero named Blade. The movie adaptation tweaked action-movie formulas by mixing martial arts and not quite accurate vampire legend. Appropriately, the New Line Platinum Series DVD adaptation of Blade also contains some surprises. The disc has all the trailers, bios, and commentary DVD viewers have come to expect. More unusual inclusions: a 20-minute documentary on blood and vampire folklore, an isolated movie score with commentary from the composer (great for music freaks), and Blade's screenwriter philosophizing about "dark comics." The many features devoted to comics and vampires keep the extra features from turning into a love-in for the movie, though pure cinema fans will enjoy the printable screenplay, deleted scenes, and a look at an alternate ending. Viewers who also like to read and listen will be pleased, because this is a talky disc packed with information, interviews, and trivia. It all looks and sounds good (letterboxed, 5.1 Surround Sound or Stereo, original 2.35:1 aspect ratio) and is enhanced for widescreen TVs. The back of the box exclaims, "It's More Than Just the Movie." It certainly is.

it was one of the best movies i have ever seen and it is my all time favorite movie so far andd it will take a lot to overcome this film! wesley snipes is the perfect person for the role of blade and stephen dorff is the perfect guy for the part of deaken frost. it is full of nonstop action and it keeps a good storyline throughout the film. this film overall is just about perfect and i wouldnt change a thing.

Blade is an awesome, action packed thrill ride with lots of unexpected turns! This movie is a Must-See for any Vampire Movie junkies or just a Wesly Snipes fan. Overall this movie was GREAT!

Great action flick. It's a modern vampire tale and Wesley Snipes plays the strong silent type. The villain in this movie was great, as is the final battle. Stephen Dorff should be proud of his scenes in this movie because he really pulled it off well. One of the first DVDs I have ever purchased. Best of the 3 in the series.

So it looks like everyone else really liked this movie... I thought it was ok - a little bit over the top. If you like action movies, then this movie was alright, and Stephen Dorff IS hot...but Wesley Snipes was completely monotone throughout the entire movie, which began to wear on my nerves after awhile...

Blade is surely one of the best films adapted from Marvel comics. This film is greatest of all vampire films that don't center around Dracula. Wesley Snipes was a great choice to play the cold, dark superhero. The visual effects are excellent. The acting is great. Stephen Droff was a great villian. The film really set apart from the previous vampire look that plagued film for decades. But, in short, this film is a great and hard to miss film that is surely a cult classic.

Snipes brings such charisma to the title role. The soundtrack really could not have been more appropriate, either. Every time I watch this movie I see or hear something else that I may not have noticed before. I want to destroy something evil after each veiwing. This is one of my alltime favorite films of any kind due to the graphic content and my fondness for the strong, silent hero type of characters, which Snipes plays very convincingly.

Blade is one of the very few good vampire movies ever. Stephen Dorff is so sexy as bad vamp Deacon Frost. He can bite me any day!
