A good effort, very true to the source material
2 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, first of all, for those of you who have only ever seen the movies, this rendition might not be to your liking. That being said, Geoff Johns and David Goyer wrote a very, very faithful interpretation of the original source material. Blade isn't superior to his adversaries beyond his ability to survive in sunlight and withstand silver or garlic. He is every bit as strong, fast, and agile. No more, no less.

The Blade films show an almost unrealistic version of Blade. He seems to be able to easily dispatch just about anything he fights. That's great for movie audiences who have never heard of the character, but it isn't what Marv Wolfman intended. Blade isn't indestructible, and he isn't a tank.

"Sticky Fingaz" wasn't spectacular, but he got the part right. He didn't overact, or try to make it a gangster type of role. He played it like Blade should be played. Overall, this was a pretty good pilot, and I for one am looking forward to the ongoing episodes in this series.
