My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

I have the 4 Film Favorites Blade Collection 4 DVD set.  I watched what I thought was the first film (the disc face didn't say anything but Blade) and it was only when the credits rolled that I discovered it was this third film.  Anyway, I got ripped off because the set was minus the first two films.  I rather liked this one.  It's got a good cast except I would have liked Drake (Dracula) to have more of a personality.  Ryan Reynolds is fucking hilarious and he's the single best reason to see this picture.  He reminds me a lot of Jason Lee and his wisecracking self.  The special effects of the vampires dying were great.  The scene with Blade (Snipes) getting tossed the baby was hilarious.  Goochee goo. It felt like that would have been in the graphic novel somewhere (which I haven't read).  Is Blade supposed to have any charisma?  He didn't have much in this picture.  If this were the first one of the series I wouldn't continue but since it's part three I think I'll check out one and two someday.  They've both got good casts.
