Even skeptical fans of the Blade franchise will enjoy sinking their teeth into Blade: Trinity. The law of diminishing returns is in full effect here, and the franchise is wearing out its welcome, but let's face it: any movie that features Jessica Biel as an ass-kicking vampire slayer and Parker Posey--yes, Parker Posey!--as a vamping vampire villainess can't be all bad, right? Those lovely ladies bring equal measures of relief and grief to Blade, the half-human, half-vampire once again played, with tongue more firmly in stone-cold cheek, by Wesley Snipes. With series writer David S. Goyer in the director's chair, the film is calculated for mainstream appeal, trading suspenseful horror for campy humor and choppy, nonsensical action. The franchise still offers some intriguing ideas, however, including Drake (Dominic Purcell), the original vampire, whose blood contains the secret that could destroy all blood-suckers in a plot that incorporates a sinister "blood farm" where humans are held--and drained--in suspended animation. And Biel's wise-cracking sidekick (Ryan Reynolds) in her cadre of "Nightstalkers" provides comic relief in a series that's grown increasingly dour. All of which makes Blade: Trinity a love-it-or-hate-it sequel... supposedly the last in a trilogy, but the ending suggests otherwise. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Things come to a head in this thrilling final chapter in the Blade Trilogy, pitting Blade against Drake aka Dracula, the king daddy of all vampires. Teaming up with Hannibal King and Abigail Whistler, the trio seeks to take down Dracula before he can create more daywalkers and eliminate Blade forever.
If you’re going to bring things to a head and have a final showdown between the good guy and a major bad guy, you need to ensure that your major bad guy is a big deal and you don’t really get any more big deal than Dracula. Created by Bram Stoker and based on the historical and infamous Vlad the Impaler, Dracula was the first vampire ever and has since become not only the most famous one, but has tons of media under his namesake including movies, books, TV shows, cartoons, songs—everything. And that’s just him never mind the countless media sporting all the vampires he inspired. Taking a vampire hunter like Blade and putting him up against Dracula makes good sense to me.
Except the Dracula in this movie is pretty so-so, which doesn’t cut it, in my opinion. I was expecting an ultra-powerful vampire, one that would give even the Reapers in Blade II a run for their money in terms of villain awesomeness. Instead, I was given a strong vampire, but not the ultimate vampire. Too bad, too, because having him as a bad guy is an awesome idea.
As always, Wesley Snipes leads the flick as the titular hero, picking up right where he left off in Blade II and staying consistent in character start to finish.
Having Ryan Reynolds as Hannibal King—I’m a Reynolds fan. Put him in the right role and you’re guaranteed something good.Read more ›
specifics.lets just say they took a different tact with this one.to say
any more would give away too much of the plot.it is still a Blade
movie,and Wesley Snipes still plays the title role.however,we have a
few new characters added to the mix this time.Ryan Reynolds plays a
prominent role as does Jessica Biel.indie film favourite Parker Posey
also appears in the film,a rare foray into mainstream for her.the story
this time out has less depth than Blade 2 has,focusing more on style
than substance.However,the villain is very strong in this film,a worthy
adversary for Blade,and a well written character.there are more gadgets
this time around.this should be the last of the Blade Franchise.if
so,it is a fitting end to the series.the changes to the film could be
construed as negative,however i prefer to think of it more as the
natural evolution of both Blade,the character and the series.this film
is a good incarnation for the series.i would have to give this one 4/5
The story is about some vampires awakening dracula and blade has to save the world. Not bad idea, but they blew it in making this movie like the first one. The acting is crap, they make this movie from a serious comic book movie into a typical crap action movie with everyone looking like they can't act or making it look like saving the world is a joke with having humerous jokes and events put in the movie.
It has some good points though, cool new weapons and fighting sequences with good special effects, but that's about it. I've pretty much already said the bad parts.
Take my advice, DON'T BUY THIS MOVIE, rent it for a night. If you want a really good comic book movie get the first blade movie, you won't be disappointed.
Now as for the movie as a whole, going with a more slapstick comedy feel from the sidekick rather than the dirty/funny sound advice from Whistler was a huge change. The villains are just pathetic in this one, not a brain among them. Only reason for the movie is to have Blade fight Dracula which comparing to the other 2 movies is quite the disappointing battle.
I give the movie 2 stars as I watch it now more for the dumb comedy then the action or story. If you're looking for good action in a dark setting stick with the first 2 films. The film is entertaining but it's more like watching Batman forever making you think... why oh why did you change a good thing.
