Blade: Trinity

R – 113 Min – 2004

Check Out The Trailer

Starring Wesley Snipes as Blade, Ryan Reynolds as Hannibal King and Jessica Biel as Abigail Whistler, “Blade: Trinity” is the final chapter in the trilogy which follows Blade, now a wanted man by the FBI, as he must join forces with the Nightstalkers to face his most challenging enemy yet: Dracula.

Wow. This installment is armed to its vampire fang teeth with stupid. Its horribly awful story line (Dracula, really?), the Pomeranian from hell, and of course Wesley’s talent at acting, make this movie borderline mental. But yet, I liked it more than the other two. Either that’s saying something about the previous films, or there are other factors at play here.

First off, they brought in fresh meat (I guess since it’s a vampire film I should say, no pun intended). Jessica Biel, who is always yummy, added the eye candy factor. Also, she kicked some serious butt, much like the addition of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in “Iron Man 2”. Ryan Reynolds filled the smart ass comedic relief spot, while adding an incentive for female viewers, as he likes to take his shirt off. This was the first of two Marvel movies he’s been in, and the 3rd superhero movie counting his up coming “Green Lantern” (well 4th if you count “Paper Man“).  Both of these actors I like, and made this movie a lot more enjoyable for me. Also, the action was a lot more hardcore, which made for some amazing fight scenes. Aside from that though, it really followed the same formula that the other two did. A very mediocre Marvel film. When they made the main villain none other than Dracula, I kinda lost all hope in the story, it was so goofy. As a random side note, there was one cool thing I saw in the background of a scene. When Hannibal is watching television in one of the scenes, you can see that he’s watching an old black and white starring William Shatner. Being a Trekkie, I thought that was pretty cool.

So there you have it, the final Blade film (thank goodness). It was definitely better than the first two, but still so hard to get over Wesley Snipes. Yikes. I’d say you can probably skip the first two without too much problem following along, if this is a movie you really want to see.
