Blade is one of the best Vampire series to watch, Ron Perlman is always fun to watch also in Blade II.

Guillermo del Toro is a genius. His later, more artsy work not withstanding, it takes a genius to make another action movie sequel about another action hero continuing a battle against another set of baddies more than it needs to be to earn back its budget.

The plot of Blade II is standard fare. Half-human, half-vamp, asskickin' vamp hunter Blade rescues his mentor and is forced into a devil's bargain with his worst enemies to hunt *another* even worst-er enemy. Backs are stabbed, allegiances are formed, bad guys snarl and threaten, Blade makes witty quips, a sidekick is amusing but unhelpful, an indistinguishably attractive actress is attractive. Every action cliche you could want. But... how to put this? Blade II rocks.

Del Toro's action scenes are hypnotic, like ballet on meth. His monsters are gargoyles worthy of Notre Dame Cathedral, and he can splash blood with the skill and enthusiasm of Jackson Pollock. Two memorable scenes (the opening sequenece in a bloodbank, and another at a monster's autopsy) are deliciously creepy. Del Toro's script may not have anything that new or interesting to say, but in this case the delivery makes it worth listening to.

As soon as I realized it was directed by Del Toro of Hellboy and Pan's Labryinth fame I went back to watch it, tihs even has the actor who plays Hellboy in it. It was more fun than what I remember 6 years ago. A real good jump from the 1st movie. A good center piece to a better than mediocre trilogy.

Forget X-Men, this is the best comic book movie ever!!!
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 03/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The original Blade was regarded as the beginning of the resurgance of comic book movies, and its sequel tops it in every way possible. I just saw this last night and my head is still spinning. Vampire hunter Blade (Wesley Snipes looking totally badass) returns two years after the original movie in search of his reincarnated mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), and after he finds him he is made an offer. A new breed of vampires called the Reapers are taking out normal vampires, and the vampire lord offers Blade a temporary truce so he can hunt them with his new associates the Blood Pack which is led by Reinhart (Ron Pearlman). The movie is slow in the first hour or so, but it builds up when secrets are revealed and Blade learns all is not what it seems, and what results are the best action scenes ever in a movie, excellent special effects, and the bloodiest goriest martial arts melee you'll ever see in a movie adapted from a comic book. My only complaint is that we didn't get to see martial arts great Donnie Yen (a member of the Blood Pack) for very long, it would have been great to see him and Snipes go at it in a fight scene. All in all, this is one of those rare cases where the sequel is better than the original, and I can't wait until this is relased on DVD, I'll be the first one in line to buy it."
Blade 2 contained jaw dropping action

"Blade 2 was diffenetly a movie that shot down the theory that sequels are worse then the first movie. Again Snipes went above and beyond during the fight scenes in this movie. It was interesting to see how the directors were able to establish moves from the wwf(or now, the wwe, and bring those moves into blade. I thought the bad guys in this movie were the best, and my hat comes off to the make-up artists. All in all, Blade 2 was a great movie, with awesome action scenes, tight bad guys, and a good plot."
A perfect sequel in every way
Andrew Olson | Macon, GA | 07/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Other than the explanation of where he (Blade) came from, who he and everyone else is, at the beginning, this film stands nicely on its own. for those of you that know the first one, then this opening explanation will be a little irritating (and a tad confusing, but it becomes clear later). The opening does smell strongly of franchise potential, being repeated in all the inevitable sequels still to come. Once past this though, we are lead through a massive fight and action scene that sets up the whole movie. and warns anyone who can't stand Hong Kong action scenes that they are probably watching the wrong screen.

The movie is essentially a platform for Snipes to have fun with his most renowned character. And he does so with very entertaining results. The movie has reasonably well rounded characters, suspicion piled on top of everyone, some amazing set pieces and a good sense of humour. The impact of all the blood and guts is reduced by the obvious fantasy of the fights (wires and SFX a lot of the time), but its still pretty powerful.

The lead performances are all very good, although some of the peripheral characters are a little too hammer horror. Luke Goss demonstrates great potential, although you would need to see him without the make up, body doubles, and special effects to really judge. and there is occasionally that urge to shout "when will I be famous." and the pure blood female vampire who takes a shine to blade is well worth being bitten by.

Overall it feels less like a sequel and more like a stand alone movie. with this in mind, I think its in fact better than the original (a rare example of the exception that proves the rule)."
