GRADE 6Third and final installment right here. Blade: Trinity is considered the worst of the trilogy, and I can understand why, but I don’t think it is as bad as it has been made out to be, in all honesty. This isn’t to say that it was great, but really, not the worst vampire flick out there. However, when they were talking about “Dracula” and then “Drake”, I will not deny cringing. It was so bad. What Trinity does have going for it, however, is so much Ryan Reynolds. So. Much. I have no issues with this whatsoever. His character was sassy and snappy and had an answer for everything, every time, and he was good – awesome character. I was so over Whistler being popped again (seriously, starting to feel like a soap opera) and the cheese throughout this film was not always the good cheese, either. The action choreography was good again, but it was backed by a really weak and sad story that was embarrassing, too, when you get right down to it. The humour was entertaining – more precisely, Ryan Reynolds was entertaining. I still love the costume design, it looks awesome. Jessica Biel was such a side character for me here. Like, she had the potential to be a strong character, but was instead there to serve as some eye candy for the guys, and didn’t really contribute anything to the story. Her character was bland, and there was no development across the board on any of the characters (not that the Blade movies are renowned for that or anything, but the other movies had a little bit to show for that). Not the greatest way to close off the trilogy, undeniably, and definitely a weak movie by comparison to the others, but still an entertaining flick if you aren’t looking for anything too serious.
