The thing with sequels is you gotta go bigger and better than the first one. It’s not always easy and usually fails, however there are exceptions and Blade II is such an exception. Instead of just simply pitting Blade against more vampires, he now has to fight alongside them and stop a common enemy. How does that go? “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”? That’s what’s happening here and is a unique take on the vampire mythos and takes Blade to the next level.
Wesley Snipes is back as the Daywalker, and does everything right in this flick like he did in the first movie: tough, sweet action, martial arts, swordplay, solid acting and more. It’s always great when you can see the actor enjoys what they’re doing—or convinces you they are—instead of merely phoning it in as is sometimes the case when an actor keeps reprising a role.
Kris Kristofferson is back, too, which is awesome because Whistler is a big part of the first movie and this one might’ve felt hollow without him. How they bring him back after what happened in the last movie was also clever.Read more ›
Well, he succeeded. Grotesquely gory and full of rapid-fire violence, "Blade II" is unashamed of its animeish action sequences and tongue-in-cheek humor ("Catch you later!"). Wesley Snipes and del Toro give it a suitably monstrous charm, although David Goyer's leaden dialogue bogs down many promising scenes.
While a monstrous hooded vampire preys on other vampires, Blade (Snipes) manages to track down his vampirized mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) and cures him of his vampirism.
Then a pair of vampire ninjas arrive, bearing a message for Blade: ancient vampire lord Damaskinos (Thomas Kretschmann) wants to meet with him. Turns out there's a monstrous vampiric mutation called the Reapers loose -- highly contagious, really disgusting, and preys on humans and vampires alike. Blade reluctantly agrees to work with the elite vampire assassin squad called the Bloodpack.
Of course, tensions run high between the vampires and the little gang sworn to kill them -- especially when they arrive at the rave club House of Pain and lose some of their number. Blade takes on the Reapers' leader, Jared Nomak (Luke Goss), only to discover that there are some nasty secrets behind the Reapers' origins. And Damaskinos' plans are far nastier and further-reaching than anyone could have guessed.
Those expecting a copy of the first "Blade" movie should leave the building now. Guillermo del Toro's direction gives "Blade II" a very unique flavour all its own -- it's faster, more grotesque, more fantastical, and more infused with quirky humor.Read more ›
again wrote the script,based on characters created for Marvel Comics by
Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan.Guillermo del Torro takes over the
directing reigns from Stephen Norrington.the storyline this time around
is more complex than the original.the original had a pretty basic
storyline,which is fine for Blade's introduction.now that Blade's
character has been somewhat fleshed out,a stronger storyline has to be
established.so there is an interesting twist in this film.the stronger
story makes the movie more dramatic,so there are less action
sequences.the story is slower of course,but it is worth it.a more
human, sensitive side of blade is revealed.there are still plenty of
action scenes,many of which are more spectacular this time
around.Wesley Snipes reprises his role of "Blade",of course,and Snipes
really gets to show off his fighting prowess and athleticism in this
installment.the direction is as good as the original,though it has its
own style.the special effects are improved here,and the tone of the
film is darker in general but there are little touches of mild humour
added.the music is again well suited to the movie.overall, a good
follow up film. a solid 4/5
