March 29, 2019
Noise and martial-arts action mask its tinny pedigree.
March 29, 2019
A futuristic gore fest that spills oceans of sticky stage blood but misses in a rather anemic attempt to pierce the heart.
December 12, 2018
A silly, pumped-up techno-thriller in which Snipes spends 24-7 slaying vampires.

"Some motherf***ers are always trying to ice skate uphill." - Blade
July 15, 2015
Filter out the gloss, the gore and the insistent techno score, and all you're left with are the gleaming pecs and bulging biceps of Wesley Snipes as Buff the Vampire Slayer.
July 15, 2015
Has the comic-book movie reached the end of the line? The glumly familiar, been-there-done-that aspect of Blade certainly suggests so.
July 15, 2015
Blade is often ridiculous, mostly poorly written and, surprisingly poorly acted too.
July 15, 2015
Such techno-action may give Blade enough power for a sequel, but one is left wondering whether there's any room for its central character to sustain interest beyond this flashy debut.
July 15, 2015
Sad then to say that Blade is, at best, second-rate pulp, hampered by excessive length, a thematically meandering screenplay, and a general lack of excitement.
January 2, 2011
Boring vampire blood bath isn't for kids.
November 24, 2008
Allows Wesley Snipes to show off his athletic prowess, but the storytelling leaves quite a bit to be desired.
July 23, 2007
A reasonably diverting videogame of a movie but not successful entertainment.
April 18, 2007
Hopelessly dated before its release.
April 18, 2007
Though slick and diverting in some aspects, increasingly silly pic has trouble meshing disparate elements -- horror, superhero fantasy, straight-up action -- into a workable whole.

June 24, 2006
An attempt to redefine cutting edge horror, this techno-vampire pic is spoiled by the same weak storytelling and flashy, computer game visuals.
December 14, 2004
[It's] dopey and lifeless.
December 11, 2004
Blade would've been a lot more fun if everybody had lightened up a notch.
May 22, 2003
Guesomely dark and just plain unappealing.
April 12, 2002
There are lots of stunts, chase sequences and so much computer morphing that the effects house must have been offering it at discount.
