For years, Blade has fought against the vampires in the cover of night, with the world above unaware of the brutal ongoing war. But now, after falling into the crosshairs of the FBI, he is forced out into the daylight where he is driven to join forces with a clan of human vampire hunters he never knew existed - The Nightstalkers. Together with Abigail and Hannibal, two deftly trained Nightstalkers, Blade follows a trail of blood to an ancient creature that is hunting him…the original vampire, Dracula.
Action Horror - Like the first two films, this is a violent vampire thriller with an
emphasis on action over horror. There are plenty of fight sequences
and strong violence, but this time out there is a lot more humor.
Wesley Snipes's title character isn't as central as in the last two
films since he's teamed with two new partners, tough girl Jessica
Biel and comic relief Ryan Reynolds.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average Snipes has made "Blade" his perfect cinematic alter-ego. Now if only someone could give the character a story worth telling, the pieces might all be in place for a great action/horror thriller. But, although the saying goes "third time's a charm," that's not the case here.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average I liked the first two Blade movies... "Blade: Trinity"...is a mess. It lacks the sharp narrative line and crisp comic-book clarity of the earlier films, and descends too easily into shapeless fight scenes that are chopped into so many cuts that they lack all form or rhythm.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 129 moviegoer opinions. OK, lets start with teen males. They LOVED IT! Around ninety percent rated it "Excellent" or "Fantastic." You can't get much better than that. As for the older males, you'll notice they also had a very high percentage of "Excellent" and "Fantastic" opinions. An unusual aspect is the very low percentage of "Very Good" opinions and the relatively high percentage of somewhat low opinions ("Good" to "Poor"). From these opinions it appears you will either really love this latest "Blade" or you won't enjoy it much. Fortunately, not many truly disliked it so you chances of enjoying it are quite good.
The ladies actually enjoyed it slightly more than the guys. They didn't have quite as many very high opinions but they had less low opinions, which is even more important. So ladies, don't think twice about seeing "Blade Trinity." You chances of truly enjoying it are very high.
Deep in a remote desert, vampire leaders are resurrecting Dracula, the horrific creature who spawned their race. Now known as Drake (Dominic Purcell), this awesome vampire has unique powers that allow him to exist in daylight.
To make things even more difficult for Blade, the vampiric leadership launches a smear campaign against him, targeting him as a murderous monster and sending the FBI after him. After Blade and his mentor, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), have an explosive showdown with FBI agent Cumberland (James Remar) and his men, it's evident that the Daywalker will need some assistance. Blade reluctantly teams up with the Nightstalkers, a group of human vampire hunters led by Whistler's beautiful daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel), and the wisecracking Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds).
While their blind scientist Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne) works on creating a final solution for the vampire problem, the Nightstalkers launch a relentless series of battles against Dracula's gang of the undead, led by the powerful vampire Danica Talos (Parker Posey) and her fanged acolytes Asher (Callum Keith Rennie) and Grimwood (professional WWE wrestler Triple H). Ultimately, Blade finds himself taking on the greatest vampire of all time, as his own fate and that of humanity hang in the balance.
