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 whom 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 whom never knew defeat, facing off against the greatest vampire slayer. Written by
An early idea of David S. Goyer was to include not only Hannibal King, but a female character called Rachel Van Helsing from the Tomb of Dracula comics, but then he heard about the movie Van Helsing (2004) and decided against it. He ended up creating the character of Abigail Whistler, Whistler's daughter, in her place. See more »
When Blade jumps out of the window after collecting his sword from the police station a large amount of glass hits the floor where he lands. When we cut back to Blade kneeling where he landed, the smashed glass has disappeared. See more »
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.

While I had some issues with the pacing, plotting and framing of Blade: Trinity, I still thought that this movie was fun to watch. I think the only real problem is that Trinity was slated to be the final film, and writer/director David Goyer seemed to have crammed two movies worth of material into one. I think New Line was a bit hasty in selling this as the final movie and he buckled under the pressure.
There are some neat action scenes, but I would have preferred the Dracula/Blade fight to not have been intercut by Van Wilder's fight with Triple H. There was never any real characterization in the first two Blade movies so don't expect anything here, either. Back story is actually back-seated, with the exception of following up on the opening scene in the first movie.
Blade: Trinity was more fun and humorous than the first two, but it certainly doesn't measure up in quality. We certainly needed more of Blade than Abigail or King.
