Let's take a break from the MMFF discussion to turn our focus on a film I saw this weekend, BLADE TRINITY, which is the third movie of the BLADE franchise. As many of you already know, BLADE is an action-sci-fi-horror-superhero movie that stars Wesley Snipes as the title character, and is about a daywalking vampire who hunts other vampires as his heroic quest.
This new BLADE movie is about how a vampire faction has managed to frame Blade by tricking him into killing a human. When this happens, Blade becomes a wanted felon and is being tracked down by the police. But this is only the tip of the iceberg as Blade is actually about to face the deadliest and most powerful vampire that ever walked the Earth.
This new movie is directed by David Goyer, who also wrote the script and has also written the script for the upcoming Batman movie. Although it may not stand on similar ground as how marvelously good the first and second Blade movies were, Blade Trinity is worth watching for its incredible action sequences and martial arts stunts. It also serves as a good epilogue for the Blade franchise. But on the other hand, is it really the end for the Blade saga?
Okay, honestly? It was a BAD sequel. Blame the doofus who played Dracula, and Triple H for such a wussy role.
