Movie Review Blade Trinity 8/10Posted by:
I am stoked to hear that SuperHeidi at BD has given Blade Trinity a whopping 8/10. I am happy because I am a huge fan. Here is some of what Heidi had to say in the review: The third installment of the action-packed comic book-based Blade Films, Blade: Trinity, is just as fun and exciting, if not more so, than its predecessors. It starts off with such a huge rush, force and excitement with a spellbinding action scene that's its truly exhilarating and refreshing to just walk in to a theatre and just be entertained without a slow, boring attempt at character development or a long, artistic credit sequence.
Blade doesn't screw around; it knows that it's just an action flick, it's just a comic book sprung to life, and it's only a damn vampire movie. It doesn't waste your time with ridiculous plot ploys or badly written romance scenes. Blade delivers only what it promises; action, fun, and lots of blood. The graphics are incredible, and this is one of those rare films where the CGI looks fantastic. Cool sets and great cinematography certainly add to the appeal of Blade Trinity. It's a fearless story that doesn't take itself too seriously, but seriously enough to allow you, the viewer, to jump in your seat a few times. Blade is just what new, young horror fans need.
Trinity pits Blade, the hybrid human/vampire against that most ancient and feared horror icon: Dracula. This is no Bela Lugosi, Frank Langella, or Christopher Lee. He's not even Gary Oldman. Dominic Purcell's Dracula is a cross between The Scorpion King and Pumpkinhead. Like Queen of the Damned, Blade Trinity reaches far back into history to explain the origins of vampires.
Unlike his predecessors', Purcell's Dracula is a fierce warrior who believes in honor, duty, and strength. In essence, he is the perfect match for Blade. New to the game is Abigail Whistler, who plays the reclusive daughter of Blade's closest ally. Jessica Biel is tough, strong, and surprisingly good in her portrayal of a troubled young woman who is physically and mentally tough. She doesn't overdo it, and her fight scenes are among the best in the film.
Biel really tows the line by standing next to the muscular men in this movie and proves she's just as believable as a warrior as they are. Ryan Reynolds is Hannibal king, a smoking hot sarcastic maverick who counters Blade's tough cynicism with sardonic humor. Adding particular spice is Parker Posey, the dark, evil vampiress whose plot to bring Dracula back from his rest comes to fruition. Posey is capable of being really sarcastic and sexy at the same time.
Her work in indie films gives her a fresh take on mainstream horror villainesses, and she dominates as the most interesting character in the story. I mean, who doesn't love evil sexy gothic women who kick with their spiky black leather boots? Snipes himself is the same old Blade: cool as a cucumber, mysterious, and an amazing fighter. Snipes has Blade down: he can portray his anger and his frustration behind those thick black glassesâ€¦it's child's play to him at this point.
