Blade

Other mistake: Smoke rises from Karen's collar while she's lying on the table before she's injected with allium sativum. It's the shot that ends with Whistler reading her ID badge.

Other mistake: Blade talks to Karen about killing vampires using a stake, silver, sunlight or garlic and says that you aim for the head or the heart, but when he fights his mother in the temple he stabs her in the stomach with a bone and she turns to ash.

Other mistake: Right before Blade confronts Frost at the end, he is shown beating up several henchmen vampires using punches and kicks, before grabbing his sword. As he grabs his sword, you see several of the henchmen vampires "burning up" in the background. However, it was earlier established that to "burn up", vampires had to be killed by traditional means. (Staked with silver, exposed to sunlight, etc.) So it makes no sense for these henchmen to burn up from only being punched/kicked. It can't be due to his sword, as he twirls it in front of them, and only after they are already burning up.

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.

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.
