Exhilarating and Exciting Action/Thriller Masterpiece!
Blade is a fantastic action/thriller that keeps you captured for the whole duration and Wesley Snipes delivers what I would say to be his best performance yet.
This film has everything that you would ask for in an action/thriller, it has plenty of blood, guts and gore, a twisted, disturbed bad buy, moments of humour but most importantly a very good story line with plenty of twists.
Their is constant action throughout the film with breathtaking stunts and effects, Wesley Snipes fighting movement is fantastic.
This film is in my opinion a must see, Wesley Snipes cool, solid appearance makes this film and I can't wait for the sequel 'BLADE 2' being released next year.
My IMDB Rating - 9 out of 10
