Wesley Snipes returns as the day-walking vampire hunter in the explosive third and final film of the Blade franchise, Blade Trinity. For years, Blade has fought against the vampires in the cover of night, with the world above unaware of the brutal ongoing war. But now, after falling into the crosshairs of the FBI, he is forced out into the daylight, where he is driven to join forces with a clan of human vampire hunters he never knew existed--the Nightstalkers. Together with Abigail (Jessica Biel) and Hannibal (Ryan Reynolds), two deftly trained Nightstalkers, Blade follows a trail of blood to the ancient creature that is also hunting him… the original vampire, Dracula. Blade Trinity is written and directed by David S. Goyer, who has written all three films in the trilogy, based on characters created for the comic book.

This film introduced two new characters Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds - X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel); Blade is played with the usual lack of emotion by Wesley Snipes.
Blade Trinity is lighter than the original Blade film, the comedy provided by Ryan Reynolds as the character Hannibal King. This comedy played well for me, most of the time. I do think that the comedy worked to a certain extent, but there are times that there seemed too many smart-alecky remarks in some areas.
The film makers decided to bring in the original vampire, Dracula (now called Drake and played by Dominic Purcell, the mean and moody brother from Prison Break. Turns out that Drac, oops sorry Drake, is also a day-walker. The modern vampires think that they can use Drake to create a new bread of vampire - they have already been experimenting on animals.
The new bread are predominately played well. Parker Posey is great fun as the scene stealing evil vamp Danica Talos, unfortunately we don't see much of the underrated Callum Keith Rennie (Harper's Island,Battlestar Galactica) who plays her brother Asher Talos. One of the new breed I thought struggled was Paul Levesque who played Jarko Grimwood - I was told that he is wrestler (and son-in-law of the boss) Triple H, which probably explains why he seemed out of his depth at times - yet he did an adequate job, he was just out shone by those around him.
The fight scenes are amazing - there is a debate at the moment as to whether or not they were filmed and then speeded up.
There are problems with the film, for example, was it truly necessary for one character to shout "Hannibal King" when he jumps through the window? It was one of those unfortunate, unnecessary, unbelievable, cringe making moments.
There is also a noticeable reduction of the role of Blade in this film. This film was meant to be a starting point for a new film and TV series about the Night Stalkers - neither film nor TV series has ever come to fruition, which is a bit of a shame really as I would have liked to have seen a Night Stalker series.
The script was changed a number of times, much to the annoyance of lead actor Wesley Snipes. This included increasing the part of wrestler Triple H, who originally had only a couple of lines. It is well known that Wesley Snipes and the film makers had a number of bust-ups during the making of the film, this is one of the reasons given for the reduction in Blade's role.
Disc one contains a choice of the theatrical version or the extended version (having now watched both the extended version is much more fulfilling than the theatrical version). Also included are 2 commentaries - one with David Goyer (writer, Director and Producer), Ryan Reynolds and Jessica Biel; the other has David Goyer, Producers Peter Frankfurt and Lynn Harris, the cinematographer, production designer and film editor.
There are a plethora of extras on the second disc, mini documentaries, making of mini films, outtakes, alternative endings, etc.
Everything taken into consideration it's not a bad film by any means; it's just not the Blade we're used to.
