Plenty of fast-paced visual thrills; the blood-drenched vampires in the club are positively vibrant in Chapter 3, 0:05:35; the city is bleached white by the rising sun in Chapter 12, 0:29:42, yet the picture never loses its definition; as Blade's rescue party arrives in Chapter 21, 0:52:00, watch every single piece of razor sharp shattered glass become totally recognisable; brilliant sunlight and a remarkable level of detail are present as Deacon dodges bullets in Chapter 26, 1:09:10.
A thrilling mix that comes into its own during the fight scenes, with noises moving everywhere as the characters perform moves not usually seen outside Hong Kong. Try Chapter 4, 0:07:05, Chapter 21, 0:52:00 and Chapter 36, 1:42:28.
An informative cast and crew commentary track which is taken directly from the R1 release. In addition to the theatrical trailer, raw behind the scenes footage, a selection of the design work and an alternative ending are all included. While cut down substantially from the R1 release, this is still a good range of extras for a R2 disc - it's just a shame about all those horrible, dull menus.
