Stan Lee originally had a cameo that was ultimately cut from the film. He played one of the cops that come in to the blood club during the aftermath and discover Quinn's body on fire. See more »
(at around 1h 17 mins) When Blade is wiping off Whistler's neck, telling him he is the Key that Frost needs, Blade gets most of it off in a couple of shots, but the last one all the blood is back on his neck again. See more »

The TNT/TBS cable TV version cut the graphic violence and gory explosions and made usual adjustments to language but sometimes would omit the Moscow ending and end right after Blade and Karen say goodbye. See more »
I didn't see this movie until it appeared on television because I was doubtful about comic flicks. Ever since the "Batman" series, "Spawn," "Judge Dredd," and many other pitiful p.g.-13 bombs, I dodged everything at all cost. I would question in my mind, "why can't someone make a movie that is rated R and stays true to the story, how difficult is that?" And finally my prayers have been answered with Blade. This movie pops right out of the pages onto the screen with sheer violence, blood, martial arts, weapons, fire, the good against evil, etc. Yeah sure a lot of action flicks contain all these goodies, and most of them have bombed. But not Blade, the movie was filmed just right, not going overboard, delivering a good length and never a dull moment. Blade II is cool, but not as cool as the first. Blade is indeed one of the best real comic flicks I've seen in a long time.
