New this month 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 House of Erebus, right before Blade jumps off the ledge to fight Frost, you see that Karen is standing on the ledge above everything and Mercury is standing down below on the platform. But when Karen's shooting at her, Mercury is coming down the stairs from above.
Continuity mistake: When Blade gets back from the park after meeting with Frost and getting serum, he discovers Frost's men have been there, and sees Whistler. When Blade moves the tape, which is in a metal rotating stand, the stand rotates on its swivel, but in another shot it has only moved a little bit and hasn't rotated either. The tape would've been facing the other direction because the stand swivelled, but instead it remains in the same position.
Revealing mistake: When Blade is being put into the chamber so they can siphon his blood, there are straps for his neck and his wrists. He is placed into the chamber and his hands are placed in the wrist restraints, no one reaches for the neck restraint. In the next scene, the strap is around his neck.

Continuity mistake: When Blade drops Karen off, she walks to her apartment and as she approaches the elevator a blonde woman walks up to its doors and stops, but in the following shot the blonde woman is now just coming into view and then stands behind the black woman instead of at the elevator doors.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: During the final battle, right after Frost's arm regenerates and he says "It's too late, Blade!", Blade begins swiping his sword at Frost rapidly. You can hear the sound of Blade's sword slicing into Frost's shirt, and even see numerous pieces of fabric from the shirt flying about in the air as Blade shreds off pieces. Yet, for the rest of the scene, Frost's shirt is almost completely undamaged, save for one or two small tears. This makes no sense, as we had just seen and heard Blade slicing off numerous pieces of fabric from the shirt. The pieces seen flying through the air were actually added later using computer effects to make the scene look more dramatic, thus creating the continuity problem.
Continuity mistake: When Karen turns on the UV lamp the first time and starts to burn Pearl (the enormous record-keeper), watch closely. In the first shot from the front, Pearl has no burns yet and the air is clear. It immediately cuts to an over-the-shoulder shot and not only does Pearl's arm instantly have burns on it (that had no time to appear between cuts), but there's also smoke in the air that wasn't there in the previous shot. (And also had no time to appear between cuts).
Audio problem: Right before Blade throws his sword to retrieve his EDTA in the final battle, he leaps to his feet as Frost attempts to stomp downwards on him. As Frost's foot his the concrete ground (or Blade's shoe, as it's unclear from the shot as the impact is out-of-frame), the audio features an incredibly loud and out-of-place flesh-on-flesh punching sound effect, instead of a proper "shoe stomping concrete floor/Blade's boot" sound that should have been played.
Continuity mistake: When Whistler is giving Blade the injection, watch the vial. It starts full, then in a close up, you can see the serum level drop. Then the camera goes to a wide shot, and the fluid level is almost full and dropping, The next close up, and the serum level falls to completely empty.

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: There is a scene where Blade and Frost are having a discussion sitting across from one another. The shot changes back and forth from Blade to Frost as they speak. On the table you can see a pack of cigarettes next to frost that changes position in every shot and even disappears entirely in one of the shots.
Continuity mistake: When Blade throws the darts full of EDTA into Frost at the end of the movie, they all just sit there in Frost's flesh, not pumping the blue fluid into him (this is especially evident after Blade kicks the final one into Frost's face). This is a blooper in and of itself, because as we saw earlier (as Blade fought two vampire guards and killed them with the same darts), the darts quickly pump the fluid out upon impact. What's more, all the darts are suddenly completely empty in the zoom-out shot of Frost's body bubbling and expanding from the reaction to the EDTA.
Continuity mistake: When Blade is escaping from the police, after he jumps across the building he uses a red door as a sheild. The police shoot the red door and it splinters. After the doctor pops his shoulder back in, the cops shoot the door again but there are no visible marks from the bullets before and instead of a wooden door it's now metal.
