Yup. Hope it's better than the second one.

It won't be. The curse of Sequels you know. Though I did like the 2nd movie so who knows, but I'm predicting it won't.

I liked the second one.. just not as good as the first. One thing Trinity has going for it is Jessica Biel. Hubba hubba..

I'm all for some t&a, but given the fact that she isn't a real athletic chick, my guess is that she'll be a liability. Should have gotten Jennifer Garner or one of the chinese actresses like the chick in crouching tiger, hero or the james bond girl.

Bleh. Everyone here disses Episode 2 but they love Blade 2 (which sucked so horribly... WISTLER DIED DAMMIT). I'll see Blade Trinity only because it looks like they got more than $5 to do their special effects and write a decent plot this time :P

actually, I believe Blade III has the same budget as the previous movie.

And I think Star Wars Episode II was WAY better then Blade II

I just got back and while Blade Trinity is better than Blade 2.. it wasn't as good as the original. It's still a good flick though.

Ryan Reynolds is funny as hell. He reminds me a lot of Jason Lee.. except not as dorky looking. Best line: I ate a lot of garlic... I just farted.

Jessica Biel wasn't half bad either. It's definitely a different role for her, but she pulled it off pretty well.

Gotta love the vampire Pomeranian. #-o

Ian, you said it man!

Better then Blade II by a WIDE margin! But not quite as good as Blade I.

Ryan Reynolds helped keep the movie together in a number of scenes, and you can totally tell that they have a spin-off in mind already for the Night Stalkers.

I thought Jessica Biel did a good job, but I also think the role could have been cast a little better then it was. Still not really complaining.

The vampire pomeranian was awesome!

I highly recommend seeing this movie if you enjoyed Blade I! :D

Huh? I'll have to dig out my copy to be sure, but I remember Whistler being alive at the end, though not in very good shape.

He was meaning that Whistler died in Blade I and shouldn't have been back in Blade II.... and I agree in that.

Well, I saw it today. I actually really liked it. With the exception of gratuitous F-word use (seriously, they were putting the damn word out of style), Ipod product placement, and the human form of the Dracula dude (gay), it was on par with the first. Poor Ryan Reynolds's character sure took the shaft though...
