Since it was Frost who bit Blade's Mother, which in turn caused his vampirism, it has been widely speculated/accepted by fans that the result makes Deacon Frost somewhat of a Father to Blade. See more »
Shortly before Blade snatches the disoriented little girl out from in front of the approaching bus, you hear it shift up and the engine speed picking up for several seconds. IOW the driver is accelerating hard on the gas. Strange reaction when somebody appears in front of your vehicle. See more »
Wesley Snipes is perfectly cast as Blade, a half human, half vampire known the daywalker. He has all their strengths and his only weakness is the thirst for blood. Since he teamed up with whistler (Kris Kristofferson) he has hunted down vampires who have lived amongst us unnoticed for centuries, but omnipotent overlord Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) is tired of living in harmony with the humans (Food as he calls them) and he plans to waken the blood god and take control of the world.
This movie is well cast, written and directed; ensuring the viewer has a thrilling ride from start to finish. Packed with great fight sequences and slick dialogue, Blade is certainly more action than horror, but it definitely delivers.
