4-Color to 35-Millimeter: Blade, Blade II, and Blade Trinity


I take a look at Marvel’s first black superhero movie — no, not Black Panther, the actual first one released twenty years ago, which was a huge hit and spawned two sequels. (And was also R-rated, so sorry, Deadpool, you didn’t blaze any trails, either.) The great superhero movie rewatch observes Wesley Snipes grimacing his way through the three Blade movies.

An excerpt:

So does the choice in villain, which is a problem throughout all three. Neither Stephen Dorff’s flaccid Frost nor Thomas Krestchmann’s Nosferatu-lite Damaskinos nor Dominic Purcell’s utter inability to show depth and nuance as Drake serve the films well. At least they have secondary villains to pick up the slack, from Donal Logue’s batshit crazy Quinn in the first film to the always-brilliant Ron Perlman as Reinhardt in the second movie to Parker Posey vamping it up (sorry…) as Talos in Trinity.

  1. The picture is significant. After watching the movie for the first time, I’m pretty sure Hollywood can make a great movie. As a starting point, the result is in turn quoted, and part of the life is a false ideal. (Two friends also said that the draft ads worked well for Matthix, but I agree). When I see the relationship between people, the impact of TAMAM does not always encourage me. In fact, the war/robot has fought the battle around the world as a whole, but the result is that they do not need it, and movie makers deserve it. The model has a special, not a travel.

    • According to him, one of the judges killed the mother of Lod. The brush (then referred to as “Lula”) and the vampires are also annoying.
