Product Description


The recipe for Blade is quite simple; you take one part Batman, one part horror flick, and two parts kung fu and frost it all over with some truly campy acting. What do you get? An action flick that will reaffirm your belief that the superhero action genre did not die in the fluorescent hands of Joel Schumacher. Blade is the story of a ruthless and supreme vampire slayer (Wesley Snipes) who makes other contemporary slayers (Buffy et al.) look like amateurs. Armed with a samurai sword made of silver and guns that shoot silver bullets, he lives to hunt and kill "Sucker Heads." Pitted against our hero is a cast of villains led by Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff), a crafty and charismatic vampire who believes that his people should be ruling the world, and that the human race is merely the food source they prey on. Born half-human and half-vampire after his mother had been attacked by a blood-sucker, Blade is brought to life by a very buff-looking Snipes in his best action performance to date. Apparent throughout the film is the fluid grace and admirable skill that Snipes brings to the many breathtaking action sequences that lift this movie into a league of its own. The influence of Hong Kong action cinema is clear, and you may even notice vague impressions of Japanese anime sprinkled innovatively throughout. Dorff holds his own against Snipes as the menacing nemesis Frost, and the grizzly Kris Kristofferson brings a tough, cynical edge to his role as Whistler, Blade's mentor and friend. Ample credit should also go to director Stephen Norrington and screenwriter David S. Goyer, who prove it is possible to adapt comic book characters to the big screen without making them look absurd. Indeed, quite the reverse happens here: Blade comes vividly to life from the moment you first see him, in an outstanding opening sequence that sets the tone for the action-packed film that follows. From that moment onward you are pulled into the world of Blade and his perpetual battle against the vampire race. --Jeremy Storey

I've been holding back on buying Blade on Blu-ray till a proper release was done. The original Blu-ray trilogy released by Alliance butchered the aspect ratios and cut the special features from all 3 movies.

I can happily say that that Blade I is now in it's original 2.35:1 aspect ratio and the remaster they did is amazing, the pq is definitely something to behold.

Blade II and III to me looked progressively worse in terms of PQ.

The special features and commentary included are the ones from the DVD's so there is nothing too new.

I cannot comment on the audio quality since I didn't watch them on my surround system.

Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase; all 3 disks are in ONE Blu-ray amray case with a decent sleeve.

4.0 out of 5 stars From The Comics to The Screen -- Vampires Beware! July 13 2004
This is a pretty good film but is not as good as the Buffy television series.
The world is secretly under the control of vampires (much like in the Vampirella stories). Blade was born of a woman who was dying from vampire bite. Thus he has many of the vampire advantages without the limitations. He has teamed up with Kris Kristofferson who was also a vampire hunter and has weapon making skills. Together they are waging a war against the vampires.
The vampires are led by a council of vampire family heads. There are two types of vampires: those born as vampires and those turned from humans by a bite. The leader of the made vampires is tired of ruling from behind the scenes and is pushing for vampires to take overt control. The ancient leaders are very wary of such actions. But the made vampire has a plan for vampiric triumph.
Some ancient vampire texts hold amazing secrets but the secret of translation has been lost long ago. Computers have made it possible to learn these secrets a la Jennie Calendar. The text reveals the existence of an ancient vampire device that can bring about the Blood God. It is to this end that the head of the made vampires is striving. With the sacrifice of the heads of the ancient vampire houses, he can become indestructible. His plans are carried out and Blade must find a way to defeat him.
While this movie has the trappings of vampires and vampire slayers, it is really an action flick with the emphasis on Blade's fighting style. There really are some very good moves here. The rest of the film is pretty good but not excellent.
I am usually pretty indifferent to most of Snipe's movies but he seems to be well-cast in this role. There are many good reasons to see this film but it is on the violent and gory side so be warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie kicks ass! June 4 2004
By Eric
Blade is cool. Ok...the movie is about Blade (Wesley Snipes) who is a part-human part vampire who has all of the vampire strengts and none of their weaknesses; he can walk into sunlight, but he's got their thirst. He is helped by Whisler (Kris something, sorry the last name is just too hard to spell) who hunt vampires. Blade's mother was bitten by a vampire when she was in labor with Blade. So now, Blade hunts down vampires and is looking for the man who made him.
Then he meet's Karen, a doctor who is bitten by one of the vampires who he sets on fire Quinn (Donald Lowe). So now as he hunt's vampires, Karen tries to find a cure for herself since she is slowing becoming a vampire herself. Blade's mission is to kill Decon Frost (Stephen Dorf) who is slowly rising in the vampire ranks and is on the hunt for La Migra (blood God). Karen is then put as bait to hunt down's Frost's follwers who is a NYPD cop who is dropping off blood to Frost. Blade then gets into some trouble, but he makes it out thanks to Whisler.
Then Karen and Whisler are found by Frost which Whisler is killed and Karen is taken by Frost. So now Frost then breaks the code for La Mirga and he get's the high members of the vampire ranks. Blade is then caught and he reunited with his mother; but she is not his mother because she is now a vampire. It is then he finds out that Frost bit his mother and Frost is the man who created Blade. Blade has to be used for La Migra because he is the 'day walker' and for La Migra to happen, Blade is used. Eventually Karen escapes from a pit where her ex-boyfriend turn into a zombie instead of a vampire. As she escapes, she rescue's Blade and now the fight is on. Blade and Frost get into a fight but now Frost is now the blood God.

4.0 out of 5 stars Move over Buffy April 17 2004
Wesley Snipes is every vampire's worst nightmare in the fantastic comic book actioner "Blade". Legendary "Day-Walker" Blade (Wesley Snipes) uses his lethal skills in his quest to exterminate the vampire underworld from the face of the earth. When the rogue vampire Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) plots a vampire uprising against all humans, humanity's only hope for survival lies in the tortured vampire hunter Blade. Based on the Marvel Comics hero, "Blade" is an exciting, action-packed comic book film that contains extreme action and rich characters. The storyline moves quite fast and the action sequences are fierce and quite dazzling. Wesley Snipes and Stephen Dorff deliver some wildly effective performances. The cast also includes N'Bushe Wright, Donal Logue, Udo Keir, Traci Lords and Kris Kristofferson.
New Line gives "Blade" an outstanding "Platinum Edition" presentation. The film is presented in its original 2.35:1 widescreen format. The DVD has a fine video transfer with rich colors and excellent sharpness. The 5.1 Dolby Digital sound is truly clear with amazing surround effects. Its supplemental features include a detailed audio commentary by cast and crew, deleted scenes, behind-the-scene featurettes, production designs and DVD-ROM extras. With such winning presentation and great supplements, "Blade" earns a solid "B+".
