Product Description

Blade (Wesley Snipes) is every vampire's nightmare: possessed of the same powers as his bloodsucking brethren, but without the weaknesses that can destroy them. Acting as a modern day Van Helsing, Blade sets out to foil a plan for a legion of the undead to wipe out mankind, masterminded by vampire overlord Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff).

From Amazon.co.uk

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

This 1998 production directed by Steve Norrington is finally released on Blu-ray in the U.K.; this 50 GB disc is encoded using MPEG-4 codec and is in full 1080p resolution with English DTS master audio 6.1, there is also Dolby 5.1 Russian, German, Italian and Spanish soundtracks along with Dolby Stereo Spanish, Portuguese, Czech and there are 13 sets of subtitles including English, German, Italian, Castilian Spanish, Dutch, Latin Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Russian and Italian included in the extras are 5 featurettes which include La Magra, Designing Blade, The Origins of Blade, A Look at Dark Comics and The Blood Tide these are in standard definition, the original theatrical trailer is also included and is in standard definition also.

The first question to ask has the wait been worth it?

In my opinion it is a resounding yes this film has never looked or sounded better, I have owned this Film both on VHS and DVD and this latest incarnation on Blu-ray has made this comic book adaptation even more impressive.

The dark atmosphere of the movie is given more depth with the deeper blacks and brighter colours on Blu-ray and the battle scenes involving swords have a satisfying clang and scraping sound and the rat-tat-tat of the machine guns now leap out of the speakers as they rip across the scene along with the crunch of bones as Blade stomps and punches his opponents this brought to life by the thumping 6.1 soundtrack and the new cover art is also an improvement to the earlier DVD sleeve it is also the full 120 minute uncut version of the film...

As my review states this is an excellent blu-ray release. The picture is incredible with the image looking very sharp and clean without losing any of the atmosphere. The extras look to be the same as the UK DVD release and the audio is an English DTS-HD Master 6.1 track.
Most important for those of you in the UK this disc is Region Free - but, beware....be sure to buy the June 2012 release. This is the USA release. The Canadian release from a few years ago is region locked! The same applies to Blade 2 and Blade Trinity.
Definitely worth the upgrade to blu-ray and still one of the best vampire movies ever!

I already consider the first Blade the best of the lot, but the cheap bluray release only strenghtens it. With great pic quality and nice sounds it should be a must buy dark action/vampire movie fans.

The best way to describe Blade would be ''a bit of fun''. Usually ''a bit of fun'' means a slightly entertaining , stupid , allright-ish , forgettable film but a film you wouldn't complain about.In this case Blade is closer to ''a bit of fun'' than an epic masterpiece . But that said, Blade manages to take all the good bits of mediocre films and a good dose of stuff from good ones too.
Now to get all that bull out of the way , first and foremost Blade is a highly entertaining , thouroughly enjoyable action movie. It has SUPERB ACTION , a very good soundtrack and allthough the story isn't Shakespeare it does the job and is easy to understand. Anyone who complains about the storyline or faults of the film is in the wrong type of audience for a movie like this. The acting has been described as some people as ''wooden'' but I disagree and believe it was perfect casting.
Wesley Snipes was born to play Blade and is the perfect actor to show who Blade is: a badass mother****** who hunts down vampires and destroys them with samurai swords while being ultra cool in the process. Blade isn't a character that allows an actor to express his array of talents and therefor Wesley Snipes ( in my oppinion a good actor ) is more suited to playing Blade than any other ''more acomplished actors'' like Kev Spacey or Tom Hanks. ( for obvious reasons )
I can't talk about Blade without giving Stephen Dorff a mention too as he delivers an impressive performance as the arrogant , hotshot leader of the vampires. I don't know who S.D is and I haven't heard of him since but I will always remember his role as Deacon Frost in Blade.

Format: DVD
Half human and half vampire, Blade's function in life is to rid the world of vampire's, he is driven forward by the notion that his mother was killed by his half brethren.

This is no ordinary vampire film, this is nothing to do with bearing crosses and creatures making music of the night, this is armoured weaponry, dazzling swordplay and a protagonist that is as cool as anything that has leaped off of the comic book page. Wesley Snipes {perfect piece of casting} is Blade, a much troubled superhero {aren't they all?}, he has to take a formula suppressant to keep away his inner vampire cravings, aided by trusty pal, Whistler {Kris Kristofferson}, they wage war against all blood suckers and here they must stop the sinister Deacon Frost {Stephen Dorff} from executing his monstrous plan.

There are no cranial pondering's here in this piece, this is a joyously high velocity action horror movie, containing great choreography and retaining its comic book heart, Blade is pure popcorn fodder for the MTV generation, in fact director Stephen Norrington utilises his music video background to great effect as the combat scenes are scored with delightful sledgehammer precision. Blood brains and gore flow freely as the film hurtles towards its head splitting conclusion, loud, dark and tinged with brooding menace, Blade is hugely recommended for a ripper of a night in. 7.5/10
