“Blade (Kirk ‘Sticky’ Jones) returns as the immortal half-man, half- vampire warrior who uses his superhuman powers and skills to fearlessly battle the demonic creatures of the night in a blood-drenched crusade to prevent their rise over mankind. With Krista Star (Jill Wagner) by his side, they fight to keep the world safe from the denizens of the dark who seek to destroy the human race.”
“Blade: The Series – The Complete Series” is not rated.
One thing did change – Jill Wagner’s performance as Krista Starr. At the end of the premiere, she was dancing the line between being a vampire and retaining her old human persona. By the final episode, she was pretty much her old self again. There was nothing really vampiric about her other than the fact that she could throw people around. It’s a shame because her character showed promise early on.
For people that watched the TV show when it originally aired, there are a few new additions. There’s a bit more language, nudity, and gore. It doesn’t add anything to the show, but I’m sure it will tempt teens to buy the DVD.
I’d recommend “Blade: The Series” to only the most die-hard Blade fans. Only the biggest fans would be willing to sit through this series for very little payoff.
There are a few bonus features included, but they are minimal. There’s a ‘making of’ documentary and some commentary with David Goyer and comic writer Geoff Johns. But otherwise there’s not a lot here for the fans.
