Count Dracula meets Matrix! That is Blade for you in a nutshell. It is a sci-fi horror action thriller. This 1998 film was one of those populist cult classics which proved so successful at the box-office that it went on to have two sequels.
Now to the far-fetched plot. For centuries, vampires have resided in this world- enjoying their immortality and quenching their blood-thirst on their unsuspecting human preys. A militant ‘half blooded’ vampire- Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff), now plans to evoke an ancient prophecy, which would help vampires rule the human race! But then there is Blade (Wesley Snipes) – the ‘Day walker’- half mortal-half vampire with all the vampire- strengths but none of their weaknesses! He is the only one who could destroy Frost’s evil plan and save the human race from being slaves! With the help of his mentor- the sworn vampire-killer Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) and a vampire-attack-survivor lady hematologist Dr. Karen (N’Bush Wright), will Blade be able to achieve his mission?
Full of eye-popping special effects and spectacular action scenes, Blade is a typical comic-strip tale of a flawed superhero helping the good overcome the evil! If you like some gory, gooey, gruesome supernatural sci-fi action, it might just be the right film for you!
