CinemaSins has become notorious for their YouTube videos, where they spend some time pointing out all of the flaws in a specific movie. Their channel's slogan, "No Movie is Without Sin" is taken very seriously, as even some of the most highly regarded films have been given the treatment. Their latest victim, however, is not one of those films. The new video spends 12 minutes taking stabs at the 1998 Marvel Comics adaptation: Blade.

Starring Wesley Snipes and Stephen Dorff, Blade tells the story of a rugged vampire half-breed who is charged with keeping humanity safe. While fans of the comics enjoyed the movie, critics weren't exactly kind to it. The film scored a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 45 on Metacritic. Those aren't terrible scores by any stretch of the imagination, but CinemaSins was much less forgiving.

The video takes plenty of time to point out several plot holes throughout the film. It also takes several jabs at the movie's dialogue, special effects, and overly-serious tone. While those issues got plenty of coverage, it was the film's use of silly vampire tropes that had CinemaSins firing on all cylanders. If it wasn't clear enough that the folks over at CS didn't like the movie, one quote from their host said it all. "I'd love to forget that I've seen this movie."

Ouch, that's a tough pill to swallow. The total sins in the video tallied 120, and the film was given the sentence of "Blood God Sacrifice." What do you think? Was Blade really that bad, or are the guys over at CinemaSins being a little too harsh? You make the call.
