Blade Trinity

2006-03-30 12:51


Deep in a remote desert, vampire leaders are resurrecting Dracula, the horrific creature who spawned their race. Now known as Drake (Dominic Purcell), this awesome vampire has unique powers that allow him to exist in daylight. Now only one force seems capable of stopping him - Blade (Wesley Snipes), the deadliest vampire slayer in the world.

To make things more difficult for Blade, the vampiric leadership launches a smear campaign against him, branding him as a murderous monster and sending the FBI after him. After Blade and his mentor, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), have an explosive showdown with the FBI, it's clear that the Daywalker will need some assistance. Blade reluctantly teams up with the Nightstalkers, a group of human vampire hunters led by Whistler's beautiful daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel), and the wisecracking Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds).

While their blind scientist Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne) works on creating a final solution to the vampire problem, the Nightstalkers launch themselves against Dracula's gang of undead. But only Blade can defeat the greatest vampire of all time, as his own fate and that of humanity hang in the balance.

What the critics are saying:

"More rambling than slick, this just about works as a showcase for the superbly brutal martial arts scenes but softens the blows with some bizarre humour that pirouettes on the brink of self-parody."
- Jamie Russell, BBCi Film

"It lacks the sharp narrative line and crisp comic-book clarity of the earlier films, and descends too easily into shapeless fight scenes that are chopped into so many cuts that they lack all form or rhythm."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"As commanding as Snipes is, Blade: Trinity is not as involving as its predecessors, and Goyer seems increasingly to be primarily writing variations on the original."
- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

The once razor sharp Blade franchise seems to be getting blunter with each new film. This third edition has more jokes, less thrills and nowhere near the same gut-wrenching impact.

Blade - Not The Sharpest Tool In The Shed It's basically the same story retold for the third time but in a slightly different way - far less imaginitive! If you've seen the first installment then you've seen installments two and three. Pathetic attempts at humour and misplaced fight scenes show that the Blade director is not the sharpest tool in the shed! I would only recommend this movie to the desparate who have seen everything else!

Blunt weapons still do damage. Trevor is right - it's awful. Funny thing is, it'll still make money. Doesn't seem right, somehow. LOTR

wesley snipes acting like the undead The only thing that saved this film was Ryan Reynolds. His wisecracks made an otherwise boring film bearable. The CGI is laughable and it seems like Wesley Snipes is just going through the motions. Avoid. No!
