"I recommend sitting in the first 4 rows in one of those new AMCs"
Hey, it's better any other Marvel movie so far.Finally. A good Marvel movie. The powers that be realized that just because it's based on a comic book it doesnt mean it should be a vehicle for the toys. This is not the crap that the Batman movies have become. It's violent, with _lots_ of blood. Blade's mother was bitten by a vampire when she was pregnant with him, hence his DNA is human and vampire. All grown up, he hunts vampires now with the help of Whistler(Kristofferson). On the flipside, Deacon Frost who is of the new breed of vampires(sorta like the lost boys compared to Dracula) is trying to awaken 'The Blood God.' Shooting, biting, cuting, dying ensues. The ending sets up any sequels perfectly.
Snipes is perfect as Blade. I've never thought of him as anything but wooden, fortunatly, it works well in this role.and unlike those horrible tv-movies, there are no other heroes.
