There are two kinds of Blade fans out there -- those who thought that Blade: Trinity was a gas and those who were downright depressed and frankly ticked off after seeing it.

Overview

There are two kinds of Blade fans out there -- those who thought that Blade: Trinity was a gas and those who were downright depressed and frankly ticked off after seeing it. Whatever your viewpoint, this DVD will reinforce those feelings in a major way. Ryan Reynolds fans will have a laugh riot with the blooper reel as they later buy into the "great time memories" that spackle the audio commentary track with the now-stud, Jessica Biel, and writer/director David Goyer. They'll love how they all talk about how much either one kicks butt or the little games that they played on set. Maybe these same people will enjoy the Nightstalkers comic included in the package, giving them hope that one day, New Line would create a film just for them. If you're part of this audience, the good news is that this DVD was made just for you. It is a love fest for every bit of the film, with no hindsight into its performance critically or at the box office and certainly no hint of the problems that have resulted in a Wesley Snipes lawsuit against the studio and Goyer personally. Of course, those that were mentally scarred from the film probably won't waste their time with the DVD, but if they did, they'd probably bust a blood vessel in their forehead from being so angry. Worthy of mention is that the clever "Goyer on Goyer" interview was previously available before the movie opened, so many of his comments have little to do with how the film played or the feelings at the studio at the time of the DVD. This version is uncut, with ten minutes of footage cut back into the film, though none of it was cut for "uncensored" reasons, just clips that weren't good enough to make final cut. This version also exclusively includes the two audio commentaries, the second being a technical commentary with Goyer and crew. The famed Alternate "Werewolf" Ending is also supplied and it's just plain bad, while the extended ending that wraps up the uncut version isn't quite that good either. The well-done areas on the disc are the 16-part behind-the-scenes documentary and the presentation of the film. Clocking in at 105 minutes, the making-of is a reminder of previous well-done Blade discs and lets the viewer straight into the heart of the production. The picture and sound are equipped with a fine anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen transfer and action-packed Dolby Digital EX Surround Sound and DTS ES: 6.1 Stereo Surround tracks, both adding up to an incredible presentation of the flick. Again, if you loved this third flick, then this disc should be top on your list -- everyone else might just want to stick in the first or second movie instead.

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.

    A fun, exciting addition to Blade

    If you're looking to be itellectually stimulated to the point of being able to perform a task you've never thought possible, okay, don't look to this film to do that for you. But if you want to be entertained, laugh, see some awesome action sequences, and get even further into the Blade story, this is a great watch. Fast-paced and cool, the characters (believable or not) will pull you in. Snipes was intimidating and perfect as our main-title hero again, with Jessica Biel doing a good job shotgun. Ryan Reynolds may have stole the show however, with his ridiculously crude lines and that glorious three minute scene where he's shirtless. Very, VERY nice. If you liked the first two Blade movies, watch this. It's a treat.

    Blade Trinity

    It was an entertaining vampire movie that I did enjoy watching but I actually liked the original blade film as the best of the three. I thought that they tried to introduce too many new characters and did not develope each of them enough.

    Action Packed And Funny

    This was a really good movie. There were many cool gadgets and awesome fighting scenes. The funny scenes were what really made the movie worth while though. It really lightened up the mood of it all. I recommend this movie.

    3rd Times A Charm....

    The Blade series takes a sharp right turn way out into left field and I loved every minute of it!!! The plot is simple. Blade is framed for murder by a group of renegade vamps looking to get him out of the way so they can ressurect Dracula named Drake for some reason here. This doesnt work because theres a somewhat new group of hunters called The Nightstalkers who swoop in and help Blade much to his chagrin and mumbled protest. This group is lead by Reynolds and Biels a smartass and a hotty with a penchant for loud techno and ultra violence. These two indeed throw everything in the Blade universe asunder which is the point so everybody stop griping allready. These films are here to entertain and for 3 films now Blade has done just that. Not too dumb not too smart its just enough to keep the brain cells alive and the blood pumping. If the franchise ends here thats fine by me go out on a high note. If it continues I just hope its as fresh as Trinity but on a whole different level. How about that idea floating around where humans are enslaved by the vampires in a post apocolyptic future?!?! That woud be freakn sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!
