Corrected entry: When Reinhardt rips the explosive device out of his head, we can see a close shot of it on Scud's hand. Since it has been stuck in his flesh, it should be stained with blood, at least minimally.

Guillermo Calero

Correction: There is blood on it when Reinahrdt removes it, but very little, much like piercing, the blood would have been wiped off within his hand before Scud took it.

Corrected entry: When a person is turned into a reaper, their lower jaw is supposed to drop out (as is obvious when they open their mouth 'proper' and feed on someone. Look at Nomak in his final fight scene with Blade. His lower set of teeth is quite visible, but they all disappear when his mouth opens.

Correction: It is entirly possible that the teeth either retract or become obscured by the maw when the reapers "properly" open their mouths. Also, nowhere in the film is it stated that the jaw "drops out." It more than likley just disintrigrates as they transform.

Corrected entry: When Blade is poised above the pool of blood, you can see a safety wire behind him.

Sol Parker

Correction: Not, you can't. I have watched the scene over and over looking for the safety wire, even going frame by frame, and it is not there.

Corrected entry: The heavily armed heroes walk around a nightclub. One even wields a drum-fed heavy machine gun - and no one in the club seem to notice or remotely care until people start shooting. Surely armed assault teams aren't that common a sight in these places?

Correction: This is not exactly an ordinary nightclub, and judging from the display of knives and other instruments at the club entrance, things crazier than an armed assault team have probably taken place in the club. Besides, bullets (the ordinary kind) don't do a lot of damage to vampires.

Corrected entry: Nyssa, daughter of the head vampire tells Blade she is a pure breed vampire - born a vampire - yet she has a scar above her lip on the right. If she is a pure breed, she would have no scars because vampires heal themselves and don't scar. (00:22:56)

Correction: Not necessarily, it depends on how the movie makers interpret the vampire myth, and the nature of the wound she received. The vampires in the "Blade" saga are vulnerable to silver, garlic and ultraviolet light, and as we can see from Reinhardt's half-burned face in the end, injuries from these sources leave clear marks that the vampires do not heal instantaneously. It is not unlikely that injuries like these could leave scars.

Corrected entry: After Blade detonates the UV bomb he finds Nyssa lying near a pool. In an attempt to save her he slits his wrist and invites her to feed on his blood. Watch as he does this: no blood ever appears on either him or the sword he uses. (01:20:40)

Correction: This is because of the angle of Blade's hand; his hand is bent at the wrist and pointing upwards, as well as being held between the camera and the sword, so you can not tell if the sword is bloodied or not. And he immediately turns his wrist (and the wound) towards Nissa's mouth, away from the camera, so you have no chance of seeing the cut itself.

Corrected entry: Towards the end Blade is strapped to a table and has spikes run through his wrists and thighs. Later he regenerates himself in blood and the wounds are healed. Fine, but there are numerous times after (the fight with Nomak, etc.) when you can see there are no holes in his pants from the spikes in his thighs. (01:27:44)

Correction: The holes are there. They can be hard to spot since they are quite small and they blend in with the black pants but during the fight with Nomak there are two close-ups of Blade's thighs where the holes are visible.

Corrected entry: In the House of Pain, when Nomak and Blade are fighting, Nomak runs away because a ray of sunlight hits him, but before that, when he gets shot in the head, he runs down some stairs full of sunlight. The sunlight on the stairs stopped Nyssa from running down them but how come it didn't effect Nomak seeing as that hall of stairs was full of sunlight when underground, there was only a little ray of sunlight.

Correction: There is nothing to suggest it didn't hurt him. He was confronted by Blade, ran away and though he did get hurt by the sun light, he didn't want to show it as a weakness.

Corrected entry: After Blade emerges from the blood fountain, he fights a lot of henchmen in hand-to-hand combat before taking on Reinhardt with his sword. When Whistler shoots the incubator after Blade kills Reinhardt, where are the bodies of the ones Blade fought hand-to-hand? None of them were vampires, so they wouldn't have disappeared. (01:37:42)

Correction: They are simply not visible in that shot. When Whistler shoots the incubators only the top platform, where the incubator sits, are shown. Blade fought the henchmen in the lower area next to this platform.

Corrected entry: The old saying is true - blood is thicker than water. Much thicker, in fact. The blood bath Blade is thrown into is VERY obviously water dyed bright red. (01:34:12)

Correction: It's never specifically stated that it's normal blood. Vampires consume blood for the hemoglobin (stated in the first film). Pure hemoglobin in a saline solution would be more efficient for the vampires and would be this drippy.

Corrected entry: When Blade stands up after dropping into the vat of blood, it drips right off him. If it was really blood, it wouldn't do this, it would stay on his skin.

Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when Blade carries Nyssa outside to see the sun she breaks up and dissolves slowly and serenely while at other points with Priest and Vurlines death the sunlight causes a rapid explosion.

Correction: Nyssa was still a vampire when she was carried to see the sun, not a reaper.

1

Corrected entry: In the first blade movie if blade did not take his serum he went into shock and became incredibly weak, yet in the sequel he intentionally sets his serum aside after speaking with Nyssa and can fight just as well without any noticeable change.

Correction: In the first Blade, he told Dr. Jensen if she wanted to help him, then make a stronger serum instead of a cure. She possibly made a stronger serum that doesn't have a state-of-shock side effect to it.

Corrected entry: During Blade's final battle with Nomak his clothes are completely dry, despite having soaked in a pool of blood just minutes before. (01:41:32)

Correction: Presumably, Blade's vampiric skin absorbs blood directly. This is explicitly stated in other Vampire movies, but in Blade specifically we see that the Reaper's body did so during the dissection scene.

1

Corrected entry: When the UV bombs go off in the sewers, the reapers are burned but you see their dead remains as scorched statues. Yet, when sunlight hits reapers, they completely disintegrate into ashes. What's with that? It's all UV light right? (01:18:49)

Correction: It could be that the sunlight isn't just a brief flash like the UV grenade. so the UV light from the sun is there long enough to kill them but not reduce them to complete ashes.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film, Whistler escapes from Reinhart and finds Blade on the lab table where his blood is being drained. Blade's shirt/combat vest has been removed. It was mentioned earlier by Whistler that the vamps had taken all of their weapons, but later when Whistler is escorting Blade into the blood vat chamber, under fire from Reinhart, Blade is wearing the combat vest.

Correction: In the scene were Reinhart is knocked out by Whistler, all of Blade's gear can clearly be seen on the floor. When he is crawling though the floor duct to the chamber containing Blade, Whistler has all of Blade's gear, and when he shoots the lawyer and comes out the the floor, you can see Blade's gear and his sword on the floor.

Corrected entry: In the sewer scene Reinhardt melodramatically puts his hand under one of the holes where sunlight is passing through and we see it starting to smoke. He is wearing gloves, why would his body react to the sunlight while it's covered?

Correction: As a pureblood, clothing does not protect vampires from the sun or UV light. Otherwise they would simply be able to go outside fully covered and be safe, which they never do. In Blade I, Frost does manage to go outside with sunscreen and clothes that protect him for a little bit, but Frost wasn't pureblood and still fairly young.

Corrected entry: During the fight scene in the tunnel, the cartload of UV bomb explodes, instantly killing everyone, save Blade, and the 2 vampires. But this shouldn't be possible as light cannot bend, and therefore, the UV bomb would only be effective on the reapers around Blade - it can't go around corners. (01:18:26)

Correction: Light may not be able to bend, but it can reflect. That's why you can see the light from a lamp from around the corner. Just think of that cartload as some REALLY bright lamps, and it would reflect a couple of times just from that sheer amount of light being put out.

Corrected entry: During the sewer scene, Whistler says "well some of us can't see in the dark, nipplehead". Fair enough, humans can't see in the dark, vampires can. So why do they have the lights on the guns? As a UV weapon, constantly on but filtered for quick access? That's just about OK. But that doesn't explain why Nyssa uses a flashlight in the house of pain as she searches the rooms/corridor/loft. (00:42:01)

Correction: There wasn't a scene I saw of Nyssa using the light, her guns were holstered when walking around the house of pain. There is a scene when Verlaine is searching with the light on. When she and Lighthammer first enter together, you see the filter on and then the next time we see her, the filter is off. But this makes perfect sense in the movie, she kept the light on, but filtered when walking through a room full of "friendly" vampires. When they were out of the way, she removed the filter to be ready to use the UV light as a weapon.

Bishop73

You can see her walking up a ladder and turning on a light to check the room.

Turning on the lights and using a flashlight are 2 different things.

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film, after Snipes beats the crap out of a lot of vampires, Whistler throws Blade's sunglasses to him. They show him throw them in one shot, then in the next shot they show Snipes catching them. But look in the background at Whistler, he doesn't have the glasses, but is moving his arm like he is throwing them. The glasses must have been computer animated, and bad editing contributed to this mistake. (01:37:34)
