Blade (1998)

1998 | R | Horror, Action

User Score: 84/100


A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires.

Blade is a great adaptation of a not so great comic book character Blade. Blade is set in a modern day city type where vampires are the "in crowd". There is only one being, half-vampire and half-human, that can stop one lunatic vampire, Deacon FrostĀ (Stephen Dorff), from destroying the world in his wake, that hero is Blade (Wesley Snipes).

I love the opening sequence and that is my all time favorite opening as it shows what a badass Blade is. The only problem is that Blade starts really amped up but starts sloping downward in momentum towards the end. I like the fleshing out of the Blade character but there was just a little too much self loathing at times.
