What you get is a disaster from beginning to end. The acting is horrid for most of the actors, half the scenes are shot in front of a green backdrop, the computer generated graphics (such as the ship) is worse than you would see in a video game.
The story was non-existent, and at a point the movie just ends. They pretty much tell you the ending instead of filming it...Or I think that is what happened. I couldn't really say, it was that bad of a sequence - which I think they showed you about 3 times..
If the opening titles don't scare you from watching the rest of the film, you must be dead.
I'm not a big Kevin Sorbo fan and when I found out he was in this movie, I almost didn't get it. But, like the other reviewer said, he wasn't bad in this film. Lee Horsely (I noticed they renamed his character from Talon to "The Stranger" should have declined to be in this film. Why try to connect "Sword and Sorcerer" with this garbage. It really had nothing to do with the first film.
Total, total garbage...Stay away and recommend to people you hate...
So yeah its basically like an audio book with some moving pictures.
Names; there are two associated with this lemon. Kevin Sorbo and Michael Paré as Oda. Oda is a vampire killer. He decides to spare one (Xia played by Whitney Able) and they consummate their union (in cartoon form) and she becomes pregnant.
In cartoon form? Yes, the opening of the film - 10 minutes of opening credits involve still pictures - cartoons done in a Japanese style as Hekate (Cazzy Golomb) appears at talks directly to you (breaking the fourth wall), narrating the back-story.
Hekate appears again at the end to narrate the story, and more cartoon stills appear in place of any action. Hekate appears now with blacked out eyes (she's a vampire, apparently) only the eyes are blacked out digitally and really badly so as her head moves slightly you see the blackness not quite in place where the eyes are.
Digitally done sequences such as a ship in a storm are done so bad it looks like someone using a program based on Windows 95.
The vampires all appear with their fangs permanently extended (except Hekate, for some reason) and they can appear in the day time. To hide their fangs they wear a kind of hajib that covers the mouth.
Kara (Victoria Maurette) is beautiful but you don't see enough of her or anyone to give this a second star. The film's over-all plot is executed so badly but Albert Pyun (the director of Cyborg) might not be to blame. Perhaps the fact at least 10 people have a producing credit is the cause of this mess.
The closing credits is another 10 minutes.

It's pretty bad...and I liked Naked Space. If Sorbo had a bigger part it would have been about 2 stars better.Published 3 months ago by Fletcher J. Shires
This is not a movie whatsoever. This is just a bunch of badly acted, badly choreographed, badly directed and even worse edited scenes put together. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Darkalo
This movie has a real challenge to "Blood Rayne" as the worst movie ever made. I can't believe this crap is a sequel to one of the best movies ever.Published 9 months ago by DrXenos

Mom really liked it, it was kind of cheesy for my taste, but it's a decent sequel to its original.Published 17 months ago by Isabella Hughes
