Blade (2004)

The problems with this series have already been commented on, so I won't beat a dead horse.  That being handled, I'll say it was better than I'd feared.  There is much hyperkinetic butt-kicking, spectacular vampire deaths, some pretty decent one-liners care of Ryan Reynolds, and Jessica Biel looks great.  The action is edited a bit frantically, and characters disappear and reappear oddly enough to warp your sense of continuity a bit.  But it is hardly a disaster, and Blade fans will have fun.  I just wish...
Oh, shut up, Steve. 
For Blade fans, a "B."   General audiences, a "C".

yeah all you say it's true, specially the part of Jessica Biel she looks great as ever, but is a real shame that a good character as Blade was send to nothing.
