Having watched the first one and absolutely loved it, I was optimistic despite reading reviews saying it was a poor sequel. However, unfortunately they were right, therefore regretfully I think the film is worth 2 stars.
There was however the occassional suggestion of quality. The start of the film was original yet was well integrated into the story of the previous film. The graphical aspects of the vampires were realistic and there were definate resemblances to the previous film's vampires. Despite this, the vampires in this film were more like zombies apart from the head vampire. There was no urgency in their acts.
I found the film to be extremely poorly scripted with cringe-worthy comments. There was a 'halloween' style about it, where the vampires would walk really slowly yet be right behind the characters all the time. The main character was extremely hollow in my opinion. I felt no connection to her what so ever. Whereas I couldnt help but feel sad at the end of the first one where the main character dies, and she cradles him in his last moments, I felt nothing for these characters, and the romance in this film was ridulous and unbelievable. Considering the group are meant to be seasoned vampire hunters they sure are pathetic and wimpy, especially the young girl, who I found annoying to the point of me wishing she would hurry up and die (sorry to be so sadistic).
And the ending (without spoiling it), come on!!! this is one film I wont be watching again.
If you were a fan of the first film you may want to watch it just to find out what happens after. However, on the other hand it may actually taint your impression of the original. This was a definate B-movie. Avoid unless you are an avid fan.
