Not your typical vampire film, "Blade" stars Wesley Snipes as a "funky" kung-fu fighting vampire hunter who goes around wiping out modern day vampires with an array of super high tech weaponry.
Aided by his weapons expert, an old hillbilly named Whistler (played by 70's actor and country singer Kris Kristopherson), and a young nurse named Karen Jensen (N'Bushe Wright), who he previously rescued from a vampire attack. They find themselves doing battle with a power hungry vampire named Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) who's planning some kind of vampire apocalypse.
Frost is trying to overthrow the purebloods that govern the vampire world, so that he can enslave humanity by unleashing the blood god La Magra. Of course Blade, who himself is part vampire after his mother was bitten during childbirth, isn't about to let that happen.
So the scene is set for a series of blood filled action packed battle scenes involving martial arts, medieval swords and high-tech machine guns, which should keep your average horror or action movie fan entertained for the full 115mins of the films duration.
Also featuring horror veteran Udo Keir and former "adult" movie star Traci Lords, vampire fans will have a blast!!!!
