In the commentary, David S. Goyer says that Stephen Norrington called him to inform him that they needed to get together to collaborate on the film. Upon meeting Goyer, Norrington began taunting Goyer about how "tattoos aren't tough." Norrington then began flaunting his various piercings and deriding Goyer. Goyer concludes by stating "...that's Norrington, in a nutshell." See more »

Dr. Karen Jenson:
Isn't this just a little high-tech?
They've got their claws into everything - politics, finance, real estate. They already own half of downtown.

Blade is a great movie. This film has so much energy that even I'm ready to go hunting vampires. For a film geek like myself, this film has it all. Wesley Snipes can finally have an action franchise and Stephen Norrington will be working in Hollywood for awhile. The screenplay is great, the cinematography is great, and the editing is awesome. The special effects are in a world of their own. This is one of th most thought out comic book based films you will ever see and it has a great cast. It's good to see Kris Kristofferson and Udo Kier. The only weak point in the whole film is the performance of Stephen Dorff. Dorff's character, Deacon Frost, seems rather weak for Blade. Can't wait for a sequel!!!!
