Blade's stomach-turning special effects, bone-crunching martial arts and cynical humor will more than satisfy any action-film addict's need for a fix of eye-popping escapist adrenaline.
July 15, 2015
For a while, anyway, this vampire picture flies.
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
What is unusual about the film is the way it combines high-tech violence with the more up-close-and-personal violence of vampires. These characters and the aggressive way they attack each other justify all the film's considerable noise.
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
Creative cinematography and non-stop, decently choreographed gratuitous violence make watching this comic-book movie entertaining. In fact, it's arguably the best comic-book movie of the year.
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 11, 2004
Blade would've been a lot more fun if everybody had lightened up a notch.
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.
October 8, 2001
Snipes plays his superhero character with such aching coolness that you can't wait for the next dumb-ass vampire to get in his way.
January 1, 2000
Lots of exploding heads and oceans of blood, moves fast and with no discernible meaning but looks good.
January 1, 2000
A hyper smorgasbord of a horror film!
January 1, 2000
A dull Blade indeed!
January 1, 2000
Eventually, Blade loses its edge.
January 1, 2000
The count would be rolling in his grave if only there weren't a stake in his heart!
January 1, 2000
My question is, if audiences are trying so desperately to escape whatever's got them all worked up in their daily lives, how is this any better?
January 1, 2000
A pulsing, wooshing, visceral experience that amounts to great fun and an entirely disposable movie.
