Blade: Trinity Adds Three Slices of Storytelling
By Glenn Bossik
Writer/Director David Goyer transforms the story of Blade, a Marvel Comics character, into a multifaceted film in Blade: Trinity.
In this film, Blade (Wesley Snipes), a superhuman man, leads a group of vampire hunters known as the
Nightstalkers in a life and death crusade against vampires led by a female vampire, Danica Talos (Parker Posey).
Danica resurrects the legendary, ancient vampire, Dracula, who is named
Drake (Dominic Purcell) and battles against Blade.
David Goyer refers to Blade as an antihero. "He is a hero in spite of himself,
but he's a conflicted hero and not even a particularly nice guy," says Goyer.
Blade faces three conflicts in his battle against the vampires. He must
reluctantly accept help from the Nightstalkers, who are vampire hunters. He must fight the FBI, which has been alerted to his existence by the vampire
leaders. And he must fight the vampires and the newly resurrected father of all vampires, Drake (Dracula).
As these three conflicts transpire, we learn that the vampire hunters have three
leaders and the vampires have three leaders. Read More
