Fast Paced Vampire Flick With Too Many F Bombs.

Very violent, bloody and gory which is to be expected from a vampire movie based on a comic book. Very liberal use of the F word when it is totally unnecessary. Special effects are very good and the fight scenes are well choreographed. It's a comic book come to life and a quality production but knowing kids would be drawn to the Marvel name they should have toned down the language.

Entertaining Blood-Fest Satisfies

I have to admit, Blade is one of my guilty pleasures. I found the film to be very entertaining. Note that this movie is non-stop bloody violence and constant swearing, so whether or not you like this film, all depends on your taste. Parents should know that this a very violent and bloody movie. In the first scene, a man is lead by his girlfriend to a club, where it turns out that everyone there's a vampire. The DJ turns on the sprinklers, which drench everyone in blood. Then, Blade shows up and tears apart the vampires in a huge bloody mess. you get the idea, this movie is a very violent, hard "R", that easily offended kids will be disturbed by. There are countless vampire deaths, where once they die, they turn into bones and disintegrate. One vampire has his canine teeth removed as a act of humiliation and then disintegrates in front of the sunrise. three other vampires burst into chunks of blood and flesh and one morbidly obese vampire is incinerated. A mother dies in childbirth, but is brought back as a vampire. A main character commits suicide to prevent himself from turning into a vampire and Blade is forced to kill his mother. There are a boatload of F-words and other profanities and some partial nudity.

Deacon Frost.

The only reason I liked this movie was because of Stephen Dorff as Deacon Frost. Blade is alright but I love Deacon. He is the best any way this would be a good movie for teens 13 and up.

The butt review

This movie has a lot of action with blade slashing up vampires. There is cussing and sex and nudity in the movie. Blade is a movie for older teens then young audiences.

I do not know how or why this movie got 1 star. Don't listen to CSM, Blade has non-stop action, extreme gore, and plenty of dark humor that would impress any action movie fan. I highly recommend this movie to any action movie fan.
