Thoughts (beware of spoilers)

After recently watching Blade II (which I love), I decided to give Blade Trinity another viewing.  It wasn’t as good as I remembered and then I had rated Blade Trinity 3 of 5 stars.  I think my lower rating is due to Ryan Reynold’s snarky comments.  They may have seemed fresh when I first saw Blade Trinity, but it seems that’s what Reynolds does in every role.  It’s grown stale for me.

From all reports the production of Blade Trinity didn’t go well.  Snipes was reportedly upset with choices Goyer was making.  Snipes also felt that too much time was given to Reynolds and Biel at the cost to Blade.  I agree.

Blade Trinity (2004) rates 2 of 5 stars.
