BRISTOL, Connecticut, U.S.A. — Wesley Snipes hits the big screen as Blade, the day-walking vampire half-breed who is out to avenge the vampire who killed his mother. In the movie, Snipes roams the cities of the world, mainly a New York-esque metropolis, sniffing out vampire hot spots, and destroying his fair share of vampire cronies.
Along the way Blade exposes the whole evil chain of vampire command that has bought out the police and is moving to a city near you. Eek!
More frightening than that is Reverend Frost (Stephen Dorff), a young revolutionary who wants vampires to take over the world by awakening the long dormant blood god. After all, vampires are at the top of the food chain.
But there’s no way Blade and his two human sidekicks are giving up that easy.
With enough severed body parts to fill up a morgue, this film is rated gory, but good. It has tons of action-packed fight scenes, a plethora of life threatening weapons, and a little bit of the sci-fi element woven in.
Blade is a perfect pick for action and horror lovers alike. Hematophobics need not apply.
