Blade: Trinity

Theatrical Release: December 8, 2004
Blade: Trinity


“Blade: Trinity” resumes the story of the dark, cold vampire hunter, Blade (Wesley Snipes). In this third episode of the Marvel Comics vampire trilogy, Blade and his partner, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), stumble into a police raid, a trap set by their vampire enemies. Blade assumes that this is their latest attempt to end his crusade against vampires until a mysterious band of slayers known as the “Nightstalkers” rescues Blade from police custody. The Nightstalkers — Abigail (Jessica Biel), Hannibal (Ryan Reynolds) and their friends — share the frightening truth: The vampires are searching for a final solution in their war against humanity, and that solution involves the return of Dracula himself. Now Blade and his companions must find a way to defeat the deadliest and most powerful vampire of all and to finally put an end to the vampires’ ceaseless blood-lust.

Dove Review

“Blade: Trinity” is by far the best of the three “Blade” films; and I really enjoyed the first two. An hour and 46 minutes of pure adrenaline action, cleverly accented with spots of humor. The focus of this film wasn’t entirely on Blade (Wesley Snipes), but spread evenly amongst him, Abigail (Jessica Biel) and Hannibal (Ryan Reynolds). Hannibal is by far the best character in this movie, with lots of witty jokes and mockery. Even Blade adds a couple spots of humor. Having enjoyed all three “Blade” films, and all Marvel films; I sure hope this is the last of the Blade series. “Blade: Trinity” used up all, of what little was left, of the storyline for this idea. I highly recommend this film for any action junkies.

It’s no surprise that this film is not Dove approved. It is basically an hour and a half of vampire killing, foul language, and sexual innuendos. There were close to sixty profanities, including several biblical profanities. Even some of the background music contained profanities. Dracula is raised from the dead by the vampires, who aspire to kill Blade and find a new way to consume human blood. I suggest keeping the children away from this one – adults only please.
