Blade: Trinity (2004)
Pretty Good Action Movie
I must say that going into seeing Blade: Trinity I was not expecting a
masterpiece, I merely wanted to be entertained by this movie. With that
said, it did a pretty decent job. People can criticize this film with
having a thin plot, being corny at points, heck I know I will, but I
don't think the makers were going for a great plot, and great acting,
more along the lines of action/comedy and lots of fighting/explosions.
The plot is this: a group of vampires bring back Dracula to help combat
Blade, while they also get Blade to the top of the FBI's most wanted,
now Blade needs help of his own, this comes from a group of new young
vampire stalkers. These are not spoilers by the way, everything I say
is included in the trailers. I must say that many times I was saying in
this film "yeah right", but most of the time I was having a ball. I
will say that one thing I found is that Blade: Trinity was less "dark"
than the other two Blade movies, it just had a lighter feel to it. More
comedy involved than before, which was nice because it was indeed
funny, but I liked the atmosphere set by the other films that this one
did not take.
The newest additions, Ryan Renolds and Jessica Beil, do their jobs
pretty well. I must say that Renolds had me laughing almost any time he
was on screen. Beil was very nice to look at, she is just incredibly
beautiful, and she does well considering the lines she is given. Paul
Levesque, better known as Triple H makes a decent debut, I guess. He
had some funny parts, but really I can't see how his job was that hard
considering his role was to beat people up, and that's what he gets
paid to do for the WWE so it's not a real stretch. Well overall the
supporting cast did a good job and kept me entertained.
On to the meat and potatoes of this movie, the fights. Much of the work
was very well done in this film, Snipes is his usual acrobatic self and
disposes of vampires in interesting ways while showing off his martial
arts skills. Here is a part I didn't like, the fighting involving Ryan
Renolds, at times he tries to be like Snipes, and it just doesn't work.
I always say, if the actor doesn't know martial arts, don't make him
try to pretend, it's just not the same. Beil did some nice fight scenes
to. Triple H, well his fights were good, but I see it too much in the
ring to really enjoy it, the whole time I was thinking in my head, "now
when's he going to break out a pedigree ?", well that moment never
came. The gun fights were really well done, and I thoroughly enjoyed
them. Overall Blade: Trinity had awesome fight scenes.
So that pretty much sums up my feelings of this film. It was a fun
movie to watch just for the action, and comedy of Renolds, but not much
else (did I mention Jessica Beil was very beautiful). I will say that
out of the three Blade movies, this is my least favorite, but I still
like it and recommend it to anybody looking for a good action movie,
die-hard fans of the series will probably be conflicted with it. My
rating is 8/10.
