Blade makes no bones about being a B-movie and that is one of its saving graces. It's kind of silly, goes on too long, and doesn't make a great deal of sense, but there are a few moments that entertain.
Fans of mindless action and good one-liners will enjoy Blade: Trinity; but anyone who was a fan of the first two films and expected more development of Blade or a grand finale to his story will be disappointed.
It lacks the sharp narrative line and crisp comic-book clarity of the earlier films, and descends too easily into shapeless fight scenes that are chopped into so many cuts that they lack all form or rhythm.
Vampire stories are meant to be frightening. They're meant to keep us awake at night, trembling with fear at an oversexed man with overlong canines. After Blade: Trinity, it's time to put the gothic back in goth.
