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: When Blade gets his serum, Whistler holds his hand, then they see the girl run. In one shot, Whistler goes right, leaving the suffering Blade. In the next shot (close up on Blade), you can see that Whistler is still holding Blade's hand. (00:26:57)

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.
