Blade (1973) does not compare with the other movies of the same title. Then again it is not trying to. What Blade is is a short thriller/drama about a tough cop trying to solve a murder case. This setting sounds a little like The French Connection (ala Popeye Doyale) and the movie could be considered a poor-mans version of that movie. Blade also has Morgan Freeman in one of his earlier roles and is a quality rent. Nothing spectacular, but nothing utterly disappointing either. viewed/owned on VHS
