Blade Trinity

Though Snipe's character was one-dimensional and dull as ever, Blade Trinity on a whole is actually quite enjoyable. This was pulled off by giving the great support cast more screen time. The story was thin as usual, but I don't let that get in the way of good entertainment.

Blade's two sidekicks, motormouth wise guy Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and eye candy Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel), were both good. Unbeknown to Blade their team were doing their homework killing vampires and figuring out what the vampires were up to, before coming to Blade's help busting him out of prison. The fool had managed to get his friend killed and himself arrested. Blade, ever thankful, didn't want their help at first but knew he could not carry the film alone so gave in in the end.

Of the vampires I particularly liked Parker Posey's character Danica Talos. She had a wonderful world-weary rock-star feel about her, as if she found everything dreary and almost terminally boring. Her interactions with King got her juices flowing though; you could feel him winding her up.
