Better than expected
10 October 2006 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

When I heard about this series I was sceptical.

But I was pleasantly surprised.

I was never a big fan of the movies, I enjoyed them but never found them to be anything special. So I actually found I enjoyed the series more. Sure he does not plough through masses of vampires like in the movies. But to me this is a good thing. I far prefer to see hero who is challenged than one who finds everything too easy.

People say he does not seem to have much personality and put that down to the acting. I disagree. The character of Blade himself on the surface does not have much personality though it is there underneath and I feel they covered this well especially with the flashbacks to his childhood.

The supporting cast is a good one. I found myself enjoying the villains as much if not more than the good guys. Though I do think chen makes a good and witty sidekick.

It is refreshing to see a series which does not hold back. Blade is not for kids. It has unrestrained violence though in moderation which adds to an interesting story.

The plot is interesting and kept me wanting to see the next episode.

I think this will run for a good few series and I am surprised to find I like another Vampire series after my all time favourite Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

This is well worth watching.
