Blade: Trinity Review
Written by: Ash's missing hand
I like the first two Blade movies, with Blade 2 being my favorite. This movie is a mess. It lacks a strong narrative and comic-book fun of the first two movies. It descends into one of those quick cut action movies that are annoying and give you a headache. The setup continues the earlier films. Vampires are waging war on humanity, and the best defense against them is Blade (Wesley Snipes), who is half-human and half-vampire. He has been raised from childhood by Whistler (Kris Kristofferson).
The Vampire Nation and it's leader Danica (Parker Posey), convince the FBI that Blade is responsible for 1,182 murders. Agents surround Blade headquarters, which results in the basic action scened where stuff gets blowed up real good. Whistler dies with his boots on, and Blade joins the Night Stalkers, who contact him through Whistler's daughter Abagail (Jessica Biel).
They have info that the Vampire Nation is seeking the original Dracula (Dominic Purcell) because, to spread the vampire virus, they need better DNA. Dracula's superior DNA means he can work during the day, all other vampires can only work nights. They find Dracula in Iraq, maybe he knows where the WMDs are? This is a franchise that is showing signs of running out of gas. This was nothing more than a cash-grab from a tired genre.
