Overview

Wesley Snipes returns as legendary vampire hunter Blade in this, the third film inspired by the popular Marvel Comics character. A fearless warrior immune to vampires, Blade (Snipes) has become a hated enemy of the bloodsucking community, and as they gather in their desert compound, a group of vampires is plotting to eliminate Blade once and for all by turning the mortal community against him. The vampires have concocted a misinformation campaign that paints a picture of Blade as a ruthless murderer and has sent the FBI on the vampire hunter's trail, led by the relentless agent Cumberland (James Remar). At the same time, the vampires have brought their founding father, Dracula, back to his undead state, renaming him Drake (Dominic Purcell) and investing him with special powers that allow him to walk unharmed in daylight. After a dangerous encounter with Cumberland, Blade and his ally, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), form an uneasy alliance with a scruffy team of human vampire slayers, the Nighstalkers, led by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds), and Whistler's daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel. While Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne), a biologist working with the Nightstalkers, researches a scientific answer to the vampire problem, Blade and his comrades take a more hands-on approach against Drake and his minions, including Danica Talos (Parker Posey), Asher (Callum Keith Rennie), and Grimwood (Triple H). Blade: Trinity was directed by David Goyer, who also wrote the screenplay for this film, as well as the first two movies in the series.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
After writing the first two Blade movies -- which were quite successful -- David S. Goyer was rewarded with the director's chair for this sequel, which continues in the same, er, vein as the earlier series entries. Blade (Wesley Snipes) is still carrying on his war against vampires with the help of Abraham Whistler (Kris Kristofferson). The bloodsucking baddies have something big planned, though, and they'll need to distract him. So Danica Talos (Parker Posey) lets the FBI know that Blade is responsible for some 1,182 murders -- and the feds immediately go after our boy, leaving the way clear for Dracula himself (Dominic Purcell) to implement the scheme that will permanently subjugate humanity to the vampires. Attempting to keep the vamp hunter out of the hands of law enforcement are Abe's daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel), and wisecracking hotshot Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds). Hey, what did you expect -- Tolstoy? This is a movie adapted from a Marvel comic book, after all. It's supercharged with ultra-violent action, and once the plot (such as it is) has been established, Goyer keeps it racing toward an explosive climax. Don't look for any gothic atmosphere in this film; there's nothing old-school about Blade: Trinity. We're talking hard-core, heavy-metal, splatter-punk stuff here. Anyone who liked the first two installments in the franchise is bound to find favor with this one, because it's got everything they had, and more of it, especially in the DVD-only, unrated edition.
