The power of an immortal. The soul of a human. The heart of a hero. Sworn to defend humanity, although not entirely human ... Born with the cunning and superhuman power of a vampire, but able to stalk by day as well as night ... Wesley Snipes stars in this action-packed thriller as the immortal vampire hunter Blade. Awakened to consciousness--and pain--before birth by the bite of the undead vampire that kills his mother, a young boy grows into a mythical warrior bearing a blood-curse: An almost insatiable desire for blood that he must fight every moment of every day. Blade uses his awesome power to battle the vampires led by his mortal enemy, the omnipotent vampire overlord Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff). The undead have infiltrated the corridors of power intent on conquering all mankind; now, against an army of immortals, one warrior must draw first blood.

Critics Consensus: Though some may find the plot a bit lacking, Blade's action is fierce, plentiful, and appropriately stylish for a comic book adaptation.

Boring vampire blood bath isn't for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is filled with violence -- in fact, violence seems to be its reason for existence. Blood falls from the ceiling onto dancing vampires. Blade graphically kills many vampires, and they in turn graphically kill many humans. There's swearing and partial nudity, as well as scenes that combine sexual lust with vampire blood lust.
