Although the special effects are mostly crap (especially the ones in the second part of the movie), Blade succeeded to gain cult status. Some of Snipe's phrases are 'over the top' but its still one of that 'must see' action titles out there.
From minute number one, I enjoyed this movie. It attractively hooks the audience inside the first few scenes, and produces an urge to see out the rest of the movie and I like that. The special effects are definitely nothing special, but don't ruin the movie by any means. If you can navigate your way through the effects, or, lack thereof, the action and somewhat poor action scenes will satisfy most people.
A kick-ass film filled with 90's cheese. But in the good way.
Haven't seen it since it came out so I couldn't remember it. The action is decent even compared to more modern movies. Also a better comic book movie than the vast array of comic book movies coming out now, but that's not saying much. Some of the effects are dated and Blade can be a bit cheesy himself but it's forgivable. It starts as a fun movie but it's lack a really great story, a good villain and p interesting scenes. It slows down a lot with scenes that explain what has already been said before. A lack of ideas and its hard to see what the 45million pound budget went on. It often looks and feels low budget.
The way a comic book flick should be made.
