Corrected entry: At the end when Blade defeats Frost, Frost (who has turned into the Blood God) explodes and splatters blood all over the place. But there is no blood on the walls in the next scene. (01:52:36)

Correction: Frost is a vampire, and throughout the film whenever bits fall of vampires bodies they disintegrate into ash. Surely this would explain why there is no blood on the walls, because it is probably ash on the floor.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Frost is talking to the senior, pure blood vampires he says that they shouldn't make deals with humans: "For God's sake, these people are our food." However, when he's telling Karen about the "Blood God" he says that everyone in its path will be instantly turned. If that happens, where would the vampires get their food?

Correction: Going by what Frost says at other times, and by other vampire movies, they probably could survive off animals. There's also a deleted scene showing that some humans will be kept alive in freezers to provide blood.

Corrected entry: When Drs. Jenson and Webb are looking at vampire blood on their monitor, the molecules are moving around in a liquid state. This would mean the doctors put a drop of the blood directly under the microscope. This method is antiquated and is not the routine procedure that has been in use for well over a hundred years. When blood is prepared for microscopic examination, it is smeared, dried, and stained on slides.

Jon Nicholas

Correction: This is vampire blood, however. As revealed far earlier in the movie (when Karen was saying that the cells were bi-convex, which was "impossible"), vampire blood is drastically different from human. Who knows how many differences the two have?

Corrected entry: Frost is running his computer translation of the vampire bible because "it is a dead language" - yet when Blade shows the scrap of vampiric bible to Whistler, he is able to read it no problem - it doesn't make sense that Whistler can read it when the pure-blood council members cannot.

Talon

Correction: It makes sense that perhaps over Whistler's years of hunting for vampires, he may have done heavy research, which included some of the decyphering of the "dead language" of ancient vampires. Latin, after all, is a "dead language," and is spoken all the time; in this case, the language used in the Book of Erebus is just long unused, and Frost was using a quick means of not deciphering, but translating.

Corrected entry: It's well established in the film that when a vampire dies both the body and the clothing he/she is wearing combust into ash. How then was Blade able to get his sunglasses back from the guy wearing them at the end of the film? Since they were still on his head when he died (check it for yourself, they only fly off after he's an ashen heap)they surely would've combusted as well. (01:46:55)

Correction: Likely Blade's shades are made of something much stronger and more durable than regular plastic sun glasses, he is after all a Vampire slayer.

Sol Parker

Corrected entry: In the hospital in the beginning, Blade gets shot in the back several times by cops. But when he jumps out the window and onto the roof, the holes in the back of his jacket are gone completely. He had been shot earlier that night at the rave and got holes in his jacket. They disappeared, too.

Correction: We don't get a good enough look at the back of his jacket after he's been shot to tell if the holes are gone or not.

AFosteROTC

Corrected entry: In the opening sequence, we see a woman dancing in a long white jacket, white bikini top and white hot-pants. However, in a matter of seconds her jacket disappears and reappears.

Correction: If you look closely, you can see her jacket draped around her elbows. This is evident in the widescreen DVD, but maybe not in the pan-and-scan version.

Corrected entry: Isn't an important part of the "La Magra" process that Blade should still be in the chamber when lightning strikes it? He's well away by that stage, but it doesn't seem to matter much.

Correction: It's only his blood that's needed, not him.

Corrected entry: Blade carries his at least five foot long sword on his back right? So how come, if you look after the fight with the cop against the police car, the next scene shows Blade sat in the front of his car, with the sword handle clearly in view behind his head. Thus where is the blade?

Correction: The sword used in Blade is less than 40 inches long, not 5 feet, easily short enough for a person around 6 feet to be able to sit in a car with the handle behind his head.

Corrected entry: When Whistler gives Blade the UV torch, even Blade who is really strong says that it's still heavy. Then in a later scene, Blade throws the torch to the girl who has little trouble catching it and carrying it around.

Correction: The point is not that the weapon is too heavy to handle, especially for Blade, but that when you are going to be fighting and moving quickly you need to be encumbered as little as is at all possible. Thus the UV weapon is not too heavy for Blade, or any normal person, to carry and use, the problem is simply that it will slow him down. (note the awkward, boxlike nature of the thing which could have been much more streamlined).

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie when all the head Vampires are lined in a circle, one of the Vampires is talking to Arly Jover's vampire character. She gets angry at him and stabs him through the stomach with Blade's sword, then she kicks him into the wall where he turns into ashes upon impact. Now if he is one of the head vampires, wouldn't killing him effect the "La-Magra" awakening?

Correction: If you look closely there's 13 pure-bloods - they obviously brought a spare from the same house, in case something happened.

Joey221995

Correction: He wasn't one of the important ones

Corrected entry: Near the end of the film when Blade enters the building he uses two syringes of that blue stuff but then the next time you see it, it is all there. Where did these two come from?

Correction: If you look closely at the back of his arm you can see 2 empty spaces were these came from.

Corrected entry: In the scene, at the warehouse, where Blade is getting his serum, he is tied to the chair with leather straps. When Blade and Whistler notice that the Doctor is watching them, Whistler goes after her. When he corners her, and begins to talk to her, then you see Blade "float down" and appear beside her. How did he get the leather restraints off? Surely not by force, otherwise he would have popped them off when the serum was applied to his neck and he had the semi-convulsion.

Correction: To avoid being helpless if vampires attacked when Blade was getting the serum, he would have designed the chair so he couldn't rip himself free with brute force but still be able to get out if he wanted.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Frost is holding the little girl hostage he is wearing a band-aid. Vampires are supposed to be able to regenerate.

Correction: If you listen to when he has the girl hostage in his flat, she mocks him by saying that he cannot regenerate as fast as he is not of pure vampire.

Corrected entry: In one scene where they show a cityscape sped up there is a picture of several tall buildings. On the middle building some black thing appears, hangs out a minute, then disappears.

Correction: It's a window cleaning gantry - nothing too complicated.

Corrected entry: When Frost and Blade meet at the park, Frost moves his finger across the little girl's face twice - one time he has a regular nail and the next he has a sharpened nail.

Correction: As Blade acts like he is going for his gun, Frost puts his hand around the girl's chin and strokes her cheek with his finger. You can see his index finger's fingernail grow in a special effect.

Continuity mistake: When Frost has the head pure-blood vampire on the beach, after he pulls out his first vampire tooth you see blood all over his mouth, but when it shows the closeup of him pulling out the other tooth, there is no blood. (01:04:22)

Blade: You better wake up. The world you live in is just a sugar coated topping. There is another world beneath it. The real world. And if you want to survive it, you better learn to pull the trigger.

Trivia: In the Marvel Comic series where the characters originate from, Deacon Frost was actually an elder man, and an alchemist who dabbled in vampirism and - via one of his experiments - turned himself into a unique vampire who could create doppelgangers of his victims.
