Blade is based on the comic by Marvel
It is about a daywalker, a vampire who is half human and not affected by sunlight. He has all their strengths and none of their weaknesses, except the thirst.
Blade was rescued from the thirst as a teenager by his mentor Abraham Whistler, who fashions special weapons for Blade to use when he hunts other vampires.
- Nothing beats the original, with Blade's nemesis Deacon Frost played by Stephen Dorff.
- Blade allies with the vampires of Russia to take on a new strain of vampire, the Reapers. They feed on human and vampire alike and are multiplying very rapidly.
- Blade is joined by other vampire hunters to battle the ultimate creature of the night... Dracula.
There was also a short lived TV series
starring Sticky Fingaz as Blade, which wasn't too bad.
