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. Unbeknownst 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.
