Continuity mistake: In the subway scene Blade chops off Quinn's hand again and Quinn runs off, yet when Blade picks Karen up, Quinn can be seen quite close to Blade in the background. (00:54:25)

The-Immortal

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene near the end of the film when Blade regenerates then kicks vampire butt you can see a man who looks somewhat out of place bouncing up and down in the background. (01:44:55)

Paul Jeffery

Continuity mistake: Frost says near the end of the film that the spirits of the twelve will awaken the Blood God. Fair enough, but when the prophecy is first translated, you hear twenty beeps as pictures of people pop up around the circle, implying that there are twenty people standing around it.

Continuity mistake: When Karen frees Blade, she opens the chamber he was in. But in a later shot, when lightning strikes, the chamber is closed. (01:39:49)

Continuity mistake: Close to the beginning when Dragonetti is talking to the Council he is looking at photos, then he puts them down, yet in the following shot he is holding them again. (00:19:05)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Frost leaves the meeting, as he leaves the sound from his shoes is delayed.

Continuity mistake: When Blade and Quinn are fighting in the subway Blade holds his face against the moving subway train. If you put it on slow motion you can see that before he gets his hand chopped off there is no blood or mark on his face. (00:56:33)

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot where Blade and Karen are running across the rooftop from the police firing at them from the hospital/morgue window, you can see the arms of a man holding a paintball gun on the right side of the screen. Paintball guns were used to fire projectiles that mimic the spark and smoke effects of bullet strikes. (00:15:35)

Continuity mistake: At the start in the car, Racquel's hair and facial expression changes instantly depending on the angle. (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Frost and Blade are fighting, Frost punches Blade in the stomach, making him fly back and hit the wall. If you watch closely, his fist never comes close to hitting Blade. (01:50:53)

Revealing mistake: When Blade shoots Quinn with a silver like dart, Quinn gets thrown back, and the wall behind Quinn bends when he hits. Then Quinn (stunt double?) bounces off the wall instead of being stapled to it. (00:09:10)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: In the subway, Blade and Quinn are fighting on the edge of a subway station for at LEAST two straight minutes as a train barrels by. In NYC, it takes a subway car one to two seconds to pass a stationary point when moving at normal speed. Even being generous and saying two seconds per car, what subway train has sixty cars in it? (normal is eight, I believe). (00:55:00)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Quinn's men are in front of Blade, the two men at the front are holding crowbars, yet the crowbars change from behind held by the legs to by the chest between shots. (00:08:20)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Blade kicks Quinn to the shower floor inside the club, he picks up his gun and turns around to shoot Quinn, and as he approaches his right is arm up, but in the next shot his left arm is up. (00:09:10)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Blade is kicking butt in the club, he jumps into a shower, stabs the last guy then jumps onto a side ledge and has the sword in his right hand. When the camera cuts to Quinn then back to Blade, he is switching his sword from his left hand to his right. (00:08:45)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: Right before the sword embeds the marble, it's on the right side of EDTA. When the sword handle opens it's above it. (01:51:30)

Continuity mistake: When Blade is beating up the cop on the back of the car, you can see that his tie is a real necktie when in fact all cops use a clip-on for safety reasons. (00:37:35)

Continuity mistake: When Blade chops off Quinn's hand in the hospital, we see it fall down inches from Karen's face, as she is lying on her front on the floor. After the fight is over, Blade finds Karen lying on her back. It is unlikely that, being as incapacitated as she appears, she would have the strength or inclination to turn her whole body over. (00:14:04)

Continuity mistake: During the fight between the burnt Vampire Quinn and Blade, Quinn picks up a fire extinguisher to throw at Blade. Blade cuts off Quinn's arm, but the fire extinguisher has disappeared. (00:14:02)

Continuity mistake: After Blade kills his vampiric mother, he runs with his vest in his hands. Then, suddenly his vest on, unzipped. He jumps down onto the center platform, looks up, and the vest is now zipped. (01:46:40)

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.
