Customer Reviews

Blade II is probably one of the best sequels to any film ever made.
Get What We Give
I was kind of scared to go see it because it seems sequels always get screwed up but this one was pretty good.
EvilDeadKing
All in all, Blade 2 was a great movie, with awesome action scenes, tight bad guys, and a good plot.

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).

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.

What could have easily been, well, a mess, instead became as intriguing as the original. Sometimes, Hollywood needs to relax on the laurel of the success of the first movie and leave it alone. However, I am glad that they threw that advice out of the window with BLADE II. My worry would be that the sequel would not be as action-oriented or smartly written as the first; the common thread found in many "part two" flicks. What I got was more action than required and a storyline that involved a group of monsters called the Reapers, a vampiric bunch that destroyed humans and vampires alike. The best part of the movie, outside of the fight scenes, was when Blade and the vampire task force had to join forces to destroy the Reapers. How can a team work together when distrust almost becomes stronger than the common enemy? That interesting aspect, along with the betrayal of a cast member and the mystery of the lost and found Whisperer, made this one of the hottest movies around!

Overall: 4/5

A new form of vampire called Reapers are desolating the vampire population throughout Eastern Europe. In a desperate attempt to stop this seemingly impossible foe the vampire nation enlists Blade to try and stop them. He is given command of the Bloodpack, a specialized group of vampire commandos that were actually trained to kill Blade. The Reapers put the uneasy partnership between Blade and the Bloodpack to the test as they prove to be as resilient as they are bloodthirsty with a secret agenda all their own.

Blade II in some ways is a superior film to the original while in other ways it falls well short. The main villain, Nomak (Luke Goss) is nowhere near as much fun or deliciously evil as Deacon Frost. Nomak is setup as a bloodthirsty monster but by the end he's more of a tragic victim which robs the film of a certain amount of viciousness. Where Blade II excels past its predecessor is in terms of the rest of the cast, its special effects, and direction.

First off, I have to say that the director's commentary on this disc is the best damn commentary I have heard. Guillermo del Toro tells it just the way it is without any apologies. He is definitely my kind of director, and I am so glad that he has earned the well-deserved credit he needs in Hollywood to keep making his films the way he damn feels like making them.

Secondly, this is not Shakespeare ladies and gents. Simply, it is balls-out one of the best "Dirty Dozen" type action film to grace the screen in a while.

It is about the allegiances that a band of misfits must form in order to conquer over the greater evil. There are so many relationships that are formed/severed as the result of each characters action. The main characters need to re-examine who they are considering where they came from. For example, Blade's struggle against his true nature continues as Nyssa's faith in the vampire bloodline becomes questionable. The villain Nomak delivers one of the best lines to Blade as: Is the enemy of my enemy my friend, or my enemy?

Film highlights:

* If you have not seen the first film, watch this one instead; it gives you a nice re-cap of events and has a much stronger, tighter pacing.

* Blade 2 is to Blade 1 what Aliens was to Alien. It starts off with a bang right away, and it does not let up. Let us just hope that Blade 3 does not turn out like Alien 3.

* Ron Perlman is great as always; insanely perfect choice for casting him as Hellboy by the way. If you have not already seen "Chronos", also starring Ron Perlman, check it out. It's Guillermo del Toro's other "vampire" film. Keep in mind that Chronos is much more "soulful" than "action-packed".
