So anyone expecting a bona fide sequel to the classic horror movie is going to be very disappointed. "From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money" is best appreciated as a movie in its own right -- a black comedy/buddy caper that just so happens to have vampires in it. It's fun whenever it's over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek, and rather tedious when it's serious.
Buck (Robert Patrick) receives a call from his old buddy Luther (Duane Whitaker), who has just escaped from prison. He wants to get the "old gang" back together at a small motel in Mexico, and Buck dutifully rounds up C.W. Niles (Muse Watson), Jesus (Raymond Cruz) and Ray Bob (Brett Harrelson). On their trail is Otis (Bo Hopkins), a Texas ranger searching for Luther.
But when Luther stops off at an oh-so-familiar bar (for about two minutes), he makes the mistake of telling the bartender (Danny Trejo) that he hit a giant bat with his car. Turns out both the bat AND the bartender are vampires. And when Luther finally turns up at the motel, he's rocking a pair of fangs himself -- and he quickly starts turning his old friends into bloodsuckers too.
"From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money" will massively disappoint anyone who expects an actual SEQUEL. This is just an unrelated story that just happens to be set in the same universe -- and if appreciated as a silly buddy-movie with vampires, it's actually pretty entertaining at times. Well, at least when focusing on the buddy parts.Read more ›
As a vampire, he joins the rest of the team and starts converting them to vampires. For some reason they continue with the bank robbery. This is not really explained and is not like the vampire mobsters in Innocent Blood.
In the end we have a final showdown when hordes of police arrive including one policeman who has a vendetta against the one thief not to get converted. Some of this action is rather interesting. At one point in the film there is a convenient solar eclipse. This one is odd as it totally blocks out the sun and the corona and then it lasts way too long. It would have been better to leave this one out.
Although this one is not quite as good as the original it is a rather good film. The characters are really quite interesting (both good guys and bad guys) and the film wraps up in a satisfying way (even if it has been used in countless films).
Once they get into the bank, it becomes clear the sequel becomes a dud. The film has a grindhouse style and music. The dialouge isn't half bad and clever at times. The acting was decent for this type of film. The main problem with this film is that it must be compared to "Duck to Dawn" a cult grindhouse classic.
F-bomb, sex, nudity (Playmate Maria Checa)
Now the other crooks are in a hotel and their buddy shows up and they think everythings normal.... Well one by one they turn into vamps except one played by Robert Patrick. I am not going to spoil the rest but if you like hard hitting action and guns you dont want to miss the ending of this movie. Heads go flying and guns are shooting!!!

Being a teenager and a boy I like my horror movies. This one is an okay vampire movie. The person that caught my eye was Raymond Cruz, he is so hot. Read morePublished on Aug. 4 2003
Why are you guys trashing this? Sure it lacks all the suspense of other scary movies, but is VERY fun and action-packed! Read morePublished on Jan. 26 2003
Although I am a big fan of vampire movies, this was pretty sad. I say this because the first "Dusk Till Dawn" was very entertaining, both funny and sick. Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2003 by Sean Doerflinger
This film has its moments, but it is otherwise a lost sequel to the awesome original from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarentino. Read morePublished on Dec 6 2002 by L. Varnau
not a good story - just a massacre!
but watch part 3 - thats on my point of view the best of the fdtd-trioligy!
This movie has some flaws. The plot is somewhat weak, the settings are different, Robert Patrick's role is not very entertaining, and this is not a continuation of the first film. Read morePublished on June 29 2002 by Movie Dude
