There are two kinds of Blade fans out there -- those who thought that Blade: Trinity was a gas and those who were downright depressed and frankly ticked off after seeing it. Whatever your viewpoint, this DVD will reinforce those feelings in a major way. Ryan Reynolds fans will have a laugh riot with the blooper reel as they later buy into the "great time memories" that spackle the audio commentary track with the now-stud, Jessica Biel, and writer/director David Goyer. They'll love how they all talk about how much either one kicks butt or the little games that they played on set. Maybe these same people will enjoy the Nightstalkers comic included in the package, giving them hope that one day, New Line would create a film just for them. If you're part of this audience, the good news is that this DVD was made just for you. It is a love fest for every bit of the film, with no hindsight into its performance critically or at the box office and certainly no hint of the problems that have resulted in a Wesley Snipes lawsuit against the studio and Goyer personally. Of course, those that were mentally scarred from the film probably won't waste their time with the DVD, but if they did, they'd probably bust a blood vessel in their forehead from being so angry. Worthy of mention is that the clever "Goyer on Goyer" interview was previously available before the movie opened, so many of his comments have little to do with how the film played or the feelings at the studio at the time of the DVD. This version is uncut, with ten minutes of footage cut back into the film, though none of it was cut for "uncensored" reasons, just clips that weren't good enough to make final cut. This version also exclusively includes the two audio commentaries, the second being a technical commentary with Goyer and crew. The famed Alternate "Werewolf" Ending is also supplied and it's just plain bad, while the extended ending that wraps up the uncut version isn't quite that good either. The well-done areas on the disc are the 16-part behind-the-scenes documentary and the presentation of the film. Clocking in at 105 minutes, the making-of is a reminder of previous well-done Blade discs and lets the viewer straight into the heart of the production. The picture and sound are equipped with a fine anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen transfer and action-packed Dolby Digital EX Surround Sound and DTS ES: 6.1 Stereo Surround tracks, both adding up to an incredible presentation of the flick. Again, if you loved this third flick, then this disc should be top on your list -- everyone else might just want to stick in the first or second movie instead.

Synopsis


Blade: Trinity
Wesley Snipes returns as legendary vampire hunter Blade in this, the third film inspired by the popular Marvel Comics character. A fearless warrior immune to vampires, Blade (Snipes) has become a hated enemy of the bloodsucking community, and as they gather in their desert compound, a group of vampires is plotting to eliminate Blade once and for all by turning the mortal community against him. The vampires have concocted a misinformation campaign that paints a picture of Blade as a ruthless murderer and has sent the FBI on the vampire hunter's trail, led by the relentless agent Cumberland (James Remar). At the same time, the vampires have brought their founding father, Dracula, back to his undead state, renaming him Drake (Dominic Purcell) and investing him with special powers that allow him to walk unharmed in daylight. After a dangerous encounter with Cumberland, Blade and his ally, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), form an uneasy alliance with a scruffy team of human vampire slayers, the Nighstalkers, led by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds), and Whistler's daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel. While Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne), a biologist working with the Nightstalkers, researches a scientific answer to the vampire problem, Blade and his comrades take a more hands-on approach against Drake and his minions, including Danica Talos (Parker Posey), Asher (Callum Keith Rennie), and Grimwood (Triple H). Blade: Trinity was directed by David Goyer, who also wrote the screenplay for this film, as well as the first two movies in the series. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

WRONG!!!!! the orgional version which is the only one on the disc was chopped up (missing scenes) WTF!!!! no extras . i had ordered all but cancelled the other 2 knowing full well they would be chopped too.. i'll wait for an american version

    I got this basically because I am a completist and I already had the other 2. This one is pretty bad. Snipes looks miserable and is clearly going through the motions. The rest of it kind of takes itself too seriously. The dude who plays Dracula (they call him Drake for whatever stupid reason) looks almost as miserable as Snipes. The blu ray quality is pretty good, but man what a bad movie.

    The third installment of the blade series. My favorite of the three. Jessica Beil is a great strong character. Ryan Renolds is hilarious, and gets some funny, and at time vulgar lines.And of course Westley Snipes as blade is awesome as ever.

    I like the addition of the Vamp team to assist Blade in his battle against vampires, but it falls short on storyline. To me, it seems like Wesley Snipes wasn't really trying in this movie, especially with the acting and fighting scenes
