After penning two Blade opuses, David S. Goyer helms his own vampire-killer epic and cheerfully goes ADDA berserk. Wesley Snipes' terse 'n' tattooed hero is now supplemented by a group of next-generation vamp hunters (including Jessica Biel's wowza slayer and Ryan Reynolds' obscenity-prone nerd/hunk). Those additions allow for much Buffy-style pop-cult quipping amidst the hyper yet neatly mise-en-scned carnage. The plot has a queen-bee vamp (Parker Posey, never more pop-eyed loony) and her crew which includes an evil undead Pomeranian pup (!) teaming up with Dracula himself (Dominic Purcell) in another attempt to suck humanity dry. Goyer is casually scornful of current politics Blade dismisses our president as "an asshole" and he nearly matches the pop-transgression value director Guillermo del Toro brought to the second installment. Check out this FBI-sanctioned "final solution" for America's homeless: storage in necro-techno Saran Wrap for use as future vampire-elite meals.
