Blade

Revealing mistake: When Karen and Whistler start to fire at Frost's men, after they discovered Blade's hideout, Whistler shoots a black guy who has a large bump under his shirt, quite obviously the squib. (01:11:00)

The-Immortal

Revealing mistake: When Blade uses his booby-trapped sword to knock down the serum from the wall at the end of the movie, you can tell the zoom in of the shot was sped up, as the rotating-timer-thing is spinning quicker than normal, and the screen is vibrating quickly.

Revealing mistake: When Blade is fighting Frost's men near the end, Blade kicks an Asian man to the ground. When he hits the ground, you see he hits some sort of mat or pillow under the dirt.

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.

Bonita Kilpatrick

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

Revealing mistake: When Traci Lords approaches Blade, he tries to shoot her with the shotgun only for it to click, empty. He then proceeds to impale her with the silver stakes mounted in the end of his gun. If you look closely (probably more noticeable in full screen), you can still see the tips on the end of his stakes when she hisses at him, meaning that they're not actually inside her, even though she disintegrates in the next shot as if they were.

Revealing mistake: When Quinn is pushing through the door after Blade has cut his arm off, the full length of the arm is visible as he pushes the door open. On the other side of the door, his arm is gone again.

Revealing mistake: In the final fight scene, Blade is fighting a bunch of guys. Before the shot goes to Karen looking down at Blade, Blade kicks a guy away, you can see the stunt wire pulling him back. (01:43:05)

Tony

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)

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.

More quotes from Blade

Trivia: The original Marvel Comics' Blade was a member of a band of vampire hunters, who mainly fought Dracula (who also was a regular at Marvel). The others included Quincy Harker and Rachel van Helsing (both descendents of Dracula's enemies from Bram Stoker's novel), and Hannibal King (a vampire detective, and a victim of the original Deacon Frost).

More trivia for Blade

Question: Why wouldn't the vampire elders just kill Deacon Frost if he's such a problem for them? It's not like they have a code of ethics to follow, plus it would send a message to any other rebellious vampires.

Chosen answer: It would seem Deacon has gathered a lot of strength around himself, in followers of "young" vampires like himself. After he kills Gitano he just abducts all the vampire elders, showing his followers are a lot stronger than the elders are. So they probably couldn't have killed him even if they wanted to, not unless they want to unleash a war. They thought his pursuit of the vampire god was totally pointless, so they let him waste his time and were probably trying to find a way to get rid of him.
