Franchise fatigue shows in all areas of this third Blade outing, directed by series writer David S Goyer. The plot is an incoherent mess, with Wesley Snipes's half-vampire vigilante teaming up with Nightstalkers Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel) to take on a vampire leader (Parker Posey). Parker gives easily the worst performance of her career as she and her bloodsucking brethren resurrect Dracula (Dominic Purcell) to get hold of his powerful DNA. Posey can't even speak the inane dialogue properly wearing those fake fangs. Snipes is also guilty of phoning in his star turn, while Biel (playing the daughter of Kris Kristofferson's Whistler) does little else other than to offer product placement to her iPod. Compared to the previous instalments, the horror is negligible and the action scenes tepid and repetitive. Add that to the sloppy direction and the disjointed script, and this is just plain inept.

Plot Summary
