Blade finds himself alone surrounded by enemies, fighting an up hill battle with the vampire nation and now humans. He joins forces with a group of vampire hunters who call themselves the Nightstalkers. The vampire nation awakens the king of vampires Dracula from his slumber with intentions of using his primitive blood to become day-walkers. On the other side is Blade and his team manifesting a virus that could wipe out the vampire race once and for all. In the end the two sides will collide and only one will come out victorious, a battle between the ultimate vampire who never knew defeat, facing off against the greatest vampire slayer.

Quotes

[first lines]
Hannibal King: In the movies, Dracula wears a cape, and some old English guy always manages to save the day at the last minute with crosses and holy water. But everybody knows the movies are full of shit. The truth is, it started with Blade, and it ended with him. The rest of us were just along for the ride.

Amazing fighting scenes
12 April 2016 | by thimeickhofSee all my reviews

I've watched all three Blade movies as part of my personal challenge to watch every Marvel movie made. I went in with no opinion or knowledge about the story.

I liked the story, but I've definitely seen better story lines. What I personally liked most is the fighting scenes. Recent movies make a lot of heroes look like almost invincible gods. It doesn't look like throwing punches takes any effort or power. In Blade in saw the opposite, the fighting looked extremely real. Sometimes I could've sworn he actually hit the actors.

Comparing Blade: Trinity to the earlier Blade movies, the special effects became so much better too. Huge plus to me. I rated this 6 because of good fighting and special effects. It's only 6 because some of Blade's humor was switched to other characters and the story isn't very deep. It's not bad, but not deep and sometimes obvious.
