The film is not a remake of Mannaja (1977) aka "A Man Called Blade". The main antagonist in that film Blade (Played in that film by Maurizio Merli) is a bounty hunter, but Blade in this film is a vampire hunter. One thing that both characters have in common: they both seek to avenge a parent. See more »

Wesley Snipes is perfectly cast as Blade, a half human, half vampire known the daywalker. He has all their strengths and his only weakness is the thirst for blood. Since he teamed up with whistler (Kris Kristofferson) he has hunted down vampires who have lived amongst us unnoticed for centuries, but omnipotent overlord Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) is tired of living in harmony with the humans (Food as he calls them) and he plans to waken the blood god and take control of the world.
This movie is well cast, written and directed; ensuring the viewer has a thrilling ride from start to finish. Packed with great fight sequences and slick dialogue, Blade is certainly more action than horror, but it definitely delivers.
