Blade

Factual error: Whistler uses a Heckler and Koch MP5SD3 to mow down several familiars at the vampire library archives, but the muzzle flash is impossibly large and bright for a suppressed weapon.

Factual error: During the subway tunnel fight the subway train takes over 60 seconds to pass by Blade and Quinn. If the train is traveling at 30 miles per hour then the train would have to be a half mile long, or 66 train cars at 40ft per car. A standard subway train is only 8 or 10 cars long.

Continuity mistake: In the big fight scene in the end between Blade and Frost, the blood smear on Frost's face changes sides a few times. (01:43:55)

Karen: Why do you hunt them?
Whistler: I had a family once. A wife and two daughters. Then a drifter came calling one evening. A vampire. He toyed with them at first. Tried to make me decide which order they'd die in.

Trivia: During the chase with officer Krieger, the vampire on the side of the road biting the girl's neck is actually director Stephen Norrington. (00:40:15)

Question: Whistler introduces himself as 'Abraham Whistler'. Could there possibly be a connection to Abraham Van Helsing in the original Bran Stoker writings, who also fought vampires?

Answer: There could be but there doesn’t really seem to be any information about where the name came from. The Whistler character was invented by Marvel for Blade's appearance in the Spider-Man cartoon show in 1996, but there he was simply called Whistler, the first name – Abraham - came with the Blade movie. Now there has been more than one character with the last name Van Helsing in the comic books and Abigail in Blade: Trinity was originally also a Van Helsing (until the producers found out about the Van Helsing movie). So yes they might have chosen Abraham as a subtle reference to Van Helsing.
