Blade: Trinity

Blade: Trinity is kind of a mess. A lot of that comes from the behind-the-scenes issues that have been reported since the original release. This would end up being the final film in the trilogy. There’s so much that feels different from the previous two movies. I don’t know why it has such a different feel, especially with all of the movies sharing a writer.

David S. Goyer returns as the writer but also takes over the director chair. This was only his second time directing a movie. I feel a lot of the problems come from the pacing of the movie, which part of comes from the editing. I’m sure the behind-the-scenes problems also came into play there as well.

Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson return though Kristofferson is barely more than a cameo. The new members of the cast are Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Natasha Lyonne, Dominic Purcell, Triple H, and Patton Oswalt. Parker Posey is fantastic, and I wish that there was more of her in the movie. There’s a good portion of the cast that are just there for cannon fodder, Patton Oswalt is included in that. Snipes is not nearly as good as he was in the previous movies, which sucks and is part of the behind-the-scenes mess.

There’s only one way that the CG effects look bad and that’s when Dracula’s face is doing weird stuff. I don’t really have a good way to describe it other than when his face is changing. His more monstrous form looks pretty good. It looked like it was mostly practical effects that were supported by digital effects. The music was done by both Ramin Djawadi and RZA.

Blade: Trinity is a mess of a movie that shines through in some moments. I never watched any Blade: The Series that was made after this came out. It had someone else playing Blade and I’m not sure if it was supposed to be a continuation of it. You can stream Blade: Trinity on HBO Max until the end of the month, though it was announced that all three Blade movies were coming to Netflix in April. I give Blade: Trinity 6 pairs of sunglasses out of 10.
