TOP 500 REVIEWERon 4 November 2009
I liked Blade when I saw that, I thought that the sequel Blade II was a little disappointing, this is the third film in the group and I was concerned when this appeared in the DVD player - I needn't have been as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.

I love a good vampire film and Blade does it for me! Lots of fighting and blood and what's best is Blade comes out victorious - great escapism!

I'd bought all three of the blade films which were meant to be new, but all three of the discs came scratched. Only realised a few days ago when I'd gone to watch one, it's not the first time, I've also had another disc which was meant to be brand new come scratched but that was due to it not being placed into the case properly.
