Blade, a wonderfully loud, amazingly filmed, and… Vampires!! I love me some Vampire movies. No, not the sparkly kind, the evil no good kind. I love all Kinds of Vampire movies. Buffy the Vampire slayer, the movie not the show… sorry. John Carpenters Vampires, Nosferatu, Dracula, even documentaries (sort of) In Search Of “Dracula” This was the first time I had seen a Vampire hunter type movie. I had bought and read the comics and now there was going to be a movie.
Blade made my day when I saw it. Wesley Snipes did a good job playing the character and Stephen Dorff was a suitably evil bad guy. While the premise of the movie is fairly predictable it is still a whole lot of fun to watch. The two of them did a lot of work learning weapons and the fight scenes are pretty intense. Yes, I know the editing room but in 1998 CGI movie magic wasn’t as magical as now.
Someone had mentioned I should add ratings, I’ve never been a huge fan of ratings, it’s too rigid. I can tell you this is a fun movie to watch and you will enjoy watching it if you like Vampire movies or just action movies in general. The acting is good, especially Dorff’s character. the story is ok, but it’s a fun watch. Do you have a favorite movie that starts with the letter “B” Let me know in the comments. Not a “B” movie… I have a list of those too lol. Maybe you like Beauty and the Beast… which I had to add here since it was the movie my wife and I saw on our first date,.. and I don’t want to be killed.
I realized I forgot something… Favorite Quote from the movie. I wanted to do this originally and I forgot. SO here it is
Blade – “Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice-skate uphill”.
