Synopsis


Blade: House of Chthon
The most powerful superhero ever to defang the living dead returns for an all-new adventure that was too intense for broadcast television. Blade (Sticky Fingaz) is back, and the Secrets of the Underworld are about to be revealed. But Blade can't defeat the legions of the undead all by himself, and in order to survive he's going to need a little help from Iraq war veteran Krista (Jill Wagner) and weapons expert Shen (Nelson Lee). Now, as Krista gets closer to discovering the true fate of her missing twin brother, powerful vampire Marcus (Neil Jackson) will fight to the death in order to ensure the survival of his blood-drinking brethren. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Blade II
Four years after scoring a box-office touchdown with Blade (1998), actor Wesley Snipes returns to portray the Marvel Comics character again in this sequel that teams him with Mexican horror director Guillermo del Toro. A half-vampire, half-human hybrid, Blade (Snipes) is a merciless vampire hunter bent on destroying the bloodsuckers that feed on humanity. The keys to Blade's success are a serum that allows him to resist the urge for blood and an array of inventive, deadly weapons, both of which were once supplied by his mentor, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson). Since Whistler's death, Blade has relocated to Prague and recruited the pot-smoking slacker Scud (Norman Reedus) to take the place of his father figure, but then he discovers that Whistler's not dead after all: He's been infected with the vampire virus. Reunited with Whistler, Blade is dealt an even bigger surprise: His greatest enemy, vampire leader Damaskinos (Thomas Kretschmann), wants to make peace with him. It seems that the vampires are facing a greater threat than Blade and hope to persuade him to fight the Reapers, a mutated super-race of vampires on a rampage of murder, indiscriminately killing both humans and their fellow bloodsuckers while sucking their victims dry. Blade agrees to a truce and joins the Bloodpack, an elite squad of commandos originally formed to fight Blade himself. Soon, the vampire soldiers discover that the virus responsible for creating their enemies is spreading rapidly and can be traced back to a mysterious "Patient Zero." Blade 2 (2002) co-stars Ron Perlman, Leonor Varela, Donnie Yen, and Matt Schulze. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Blade: Trinity
Wesley Snipes returns as legendary vampire hunter Blade in this, the third film inspired by the popular Marvel Comics character. A fearless warrior immune to vampires, Blade (Snipes) has become a hated enemy of the bloodsucking community, and as they gather in their desert compound, a group of vampires is plotting to eliminate Blade once and for all by turning the mortal community against him. The vampires have concocted a misinformation campaign that paints a picture of Blade as a ruthless murderer and has sent the FBI on the vampire hunter's trail, led by the relentless agent Cumberland (James Remar). At the same time, the vampires have brought their founding father, Dracula, back to his undead state, renaming him Drake (Dominic Purcell) and investing him with special powers that allow him to walk unharmed in daylight. After a dangerous encounter with Cumberland, Blade and his ally, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), form an uneasy alliance with a scruffy team of human vampire slayers, the Nighstalkers, led by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds), and Whistler's daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel. While Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne), a biologist working with the Nightstalkers, researches a scientific answer to the vampire problem, Blade and his comrades take a more hands-on approach against Drake and his minions, including Danica Talos (Parker Posey), Asher (Callum Keith Rennie), and Grimwood (Triple H). Blade: Trinity was directed by David Goyer, who also wrote the screenplay for this film, as well as the first two movies in the series. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Blade
British director Stephen Norrington helmed this David S. Goyer adaptation of the Marvel Comics character created in 1973 by scripter Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan. In the Tomb of Dracula comic book origin, just before Blade's mother gave birth to Blade, she was bitten by a vampire, which made Blade immune to vampires. Now a vampire hunter, Blade, joined by vampire detective Hannibal King and Dracula-descendent Frank Drake, stalks vampires. In the 1990s (in Marvel's Nightstalkers), Blade teamed with Drake and King in an agency created to fight a variety of supernatural beings. The Marvel origin is retold in this 1998 Norrington film, with Blade's mother dying as he is born. Thirty-some years later, Blade now exists somewhere between the two worlds, not human but not fully vampire. He has become a relentless and superhuman vampire hunter, out to avenge the death of his mother and protect the rest of humankind from the evil vampire race. In this pursuit, Blade storms a notorious vampire nightclub and in a virtual bloodbath manages to wipe out most of the blood-lusting denizens. But the burnt corpse of vampire Quinn (Donal Logue) is reanimated at the hospital morgue and bites hematologist Karen Jenson (N'Bushe Wright). Blade magically appears at the hospital just in time to whisk Karen to his hideaway, a machine-shop run by his mentor Abraham Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), who once rescued Blade and who now produces a antidote to keep Blade from turning into a full-fledged vampire and who builds custom weapons for Blade to use against his evil foes. Meanwhile, Blade's vampire arch-nemesis Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) uses computers to translate the Book of Erebus, with the ultimate aim of bringing down the old-guard vampire council, headed by Dragonetti (Udo Kier), and triggering the Blood Tide -- an event in which everyone in the world becomes a vampire. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Films are great, DVD quality is iffy

    The Blade Trilogy is an excellent set of films, for what they are—films based on a comic book about a vampire hunting vampires set to a mashup of hip-hop and trip-hop. The last film House of Cthun or whatever it's called, is B+ made for TV schlock, but that's alright as long as you're expecting it. What was disappointing was the packaging. The discs are stacked on top of each other on an extra-long nub. This will make the discs prone to scratch, so be careful handling them, or repackage them. The disc quality was pretty good except on Blade 2, the sound kept popping and the color is flat. I compared this with an older DVD copy of Blade 2 I have and the issue seems to be the disc and not my components. Since I already own this, I won't complain too loudly. But consumers should take note that you're getting what you pay for quality-wise.

    I had this Blade Collection before that was also purchased at my Best Buy location but I lost it. So when I purchased my second collection, I went home and took off packaging and unfortunately saw the first Blade DVD was scratched. I was really disappointed but also didn't want to down-rate the awesome that is Blade so I gave the rating 5 stars. Given that not all products aren't in bad condition but I don't think I could return this opened.

    Yeah, I love Wesley Snipes, what's it to ya? Big whoop - wanna fight about it? The BLADE movies won't be winning any awards for QUALITY any time soon, but they are a lot of fun - nobody ever thinks, "Man, those blade movies really pushed me emotionally.." People see movies like this because they are violent, fun, absurd, and enjoyable. Plus, Ryan Reynolds is top shelf fun in Trinity.

    Great movies. I've seen the first 2 prior to purchasing this set of 4. Great acting, special effects, plot. I like action/adventure and sci fi. Wesley Snipes is a great actor! I'd love to get the Blade Sword. My only concern is that all 4 dvd's were packaged together right up against each other so they might scratch the one beneath it. I fixed that with jewel cases.

    Got this for my mom on black friday, it was a great price for 4 movies. I remember watching blade in the theater when it came out, I was maybe 18 or 19, I thought it was great. I don't think I've sat down and watched it since then, but my mom seems to love them so I'm giving it a good review for her, lol.

    The movies are great! A little cheesy at times, but what do you expect for a vampire comic book? The packaging and DVD formatting is fine, wish there were more special features, but that's true of almost all the DVDs i buy! Overall it was a great purchase!
