A group of vampires travels to the desert to resurrect Dracula. In his resurrected form, he is called Drake, and he has new gifts, including the ability to exist in daylight.
The vampires launch a campaign against their nemesis, Blade, and his mentor, Whistler. Blade and Whistler's only hope is to team with the Nightstalkers, a group of human vampire hunters lead by Whistler's daughter, Abigail and Hannibal King, a somewhat erratic ex-vampire.
But can Blade stand up to the father of all vampires, the original, Dracula himself?
Okay, I adored this movie, I loved the special effects, the humour, oh, and a slightly undressed Ryan Reynolds...
Admittedly the plot was rather thin in (a lot of) places, and Wesley Snipes couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag but there are things that make up for this - one of which being the previously mentioned Ryan Reynolds. The man has a delightfully dry humour that really makes this movie worth watching, not to mention exceptional comic timing. He does okay with the whole action thing as well.
But, if you want an awesome new action star? Check out Jessica Biel! She does a fantastic job as a butt-kicking vampire slayer, and she is pretty darn believeable...
Worth watching once... at least :)
OK, I LOVED the original Blade movie. It was unique, innovative, and almost believable. The sequel was a bit rank, with some seriously bad special effect scenes (particularly the ones with the jumping.) So it was with some trepidation that I sat down to watch this, the third installment of the Daywalker Saga.
About half way through I was starting to see some predictable plot elements showing up, and King's humour was really making me laugh. The guy is just messed-up in the head, giving him some seriously funny moments.
The action scenes were quite powerfully done, with some STUNNING sword scenes near the end, between Blade and Drake/Dracula... but the storyline was rather weak in places, showing obvious signs of the scriptwriters saying "Oh blast, what are we going to fill this empty bit with? Ah! Blood! Yes, more blood!" - as evidenced by the contents of the guarded warehouse. (No, I am NOT going to tell you what the vampire's "Ultimate Solution" is. But of course it'll involve blood, what doesn't in a vampire movie?)
Overall, this was not as good as the first movie, but not as sloppy or lame as the second, so it's not too bad really. I probably won't get this in my collection until it's in the bargain bins at the local DVD retailer.

John Constantine has been to hell and back.
Born with a gift he didn't want, the ability to clearly recognize the half-breed angels and demons that walk the earth in human skin, Constantine was driven to take his own life to escape the tormenting clarity of his vision. But he failed. Resuscitated against his will, he found himself cast back into the land of the living. Now, marked as an attempted suicide with a temporary lease on ... more...
