Underrated Masterpieces: Blade Trinity

Underrated Masterpieces: Blade Trinity

The third and final Blade film crosses over with the legend of Dracula (1897), written by Bram Stoker as an ultimate finale called Blade: Trinity (2004), which came out a hundred and seven years after the book.

Blade (Wesley Snipes) reluctantly decided to join the Nightstalkers, a group of vampire hunters led by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and Abraham Whistler’s (Kris Kristofferson) daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel).

The Nightstalkers explained to Blade that Dracula (Dominic Purcell), the very first vampire is ready to attack Blade and begin a Vampiric Final Solution. So, the Nightstalkers prepared a virus known as the Daystar that will kill anyone who is a vampire, including Dracula’s ally, Danica Talos (Parker Posey).

Ryan Reynolds improvised some memorable parts of the film with a vampiric Pomeranian shown instead of a vampiric Russell terrier, for black comedic effect. The film was the reason why Reynolds got attached to Deadpool (2016).

Jessica Biel showed off her skills as Abigail Whistler, a character created only for the film, who can be quite the hunter.

The film featured cameos by Triple H, John Michael Higgins and Patton Oswalt.

The Unrated 2-Disc DVD is out of print and contains an alternate ending with additional scenes to make the film flow better.

Blade: Trinity is worth watching for those who want to see Wesley Snipes go against the most iconic vampire of all time.
