Wesley Snipes returns as Blade, the daywalking half-human/half-vampire who has dedicated his life to fighting the threat posed by the undead. This time he enters into an alliance with vampire chief Damaskinos in order to eradicate a new strain of vampire which preys on both the living and the undead. Leading an elite vampire combat team known as the 'Blood Pack', Blade visits the Prague nightclub where the new vampires have made their base and makes ready to attack. But this new strain is stronger and more deadly than anything the vampire hunter has come up against before.
Aptly described by critic Roger Ebert as "a vomitorium of viscera", Blade II takes the express route to sequel success. So if you enjoyed Blade, you'll probably drool over this monster mash, which is anything but boring. Set (and filmed) in Prague, the plot finds a new crop of "Reaper" vampires threatening to implement a viral breeding program, and they're nearly impervious to attacks by Blade (Wesley Snipes), his now-revived mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), and a small army of "normal" vampires who routinely combust in a constant conflagration of spectacular special effects. It's up to Blade to conquer the über-vamps, and both Snipes and director Guillermo del Toro (Mimic) serve up a nonstop smorgasbord of intensely choreographed action, creepy makeup, and graphic ultra-violence, with the ever-imposing Ron Perlman as a vampire villain. It's sadistic, juvenile, numbing, and--for those who dig this kind of thing--undeniably impressive. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

There is a rare mistake on the back of the artwork the copy I have says the film is presented in 2.35 aspect ratio this is incorrect the presentation of this film is in the original 1.85 aspect ratio that the director filmed in and the running time is still 117 minutes just like the theatrical and DVD release, there are subtitles for the hard of hearing in English and that's all the subs there are a little short-signed I would have said.
Comparing the special the earlier 2002 release which was a double disc set this 50gb disc has the same special features and a couple of new ones which includes audio commentary from the director Guillermo del Torro where he unravels the multi-layered world he created for the Blade Universe and commentary from Wesley Snipes and writer David S. Goyer.
The features that where on the DVD set also appear such as "The Blood Pact" and deleted scenes with audio from the director and music video from Cypress Hill.
The Reapers are an excellent creation, throwing the powerful vampires around like they are nothing, and when you see how they feed for the first time you will be shocked. The vampires who team up with Blade are a team that were trained to hunt down and kill Blade, they are called the Bloodpack, and the tension between them and Blade when they are working together is great. As mentioned before, the action scenes are fantastic, they just up the ante on the first and even third movie so much its unbelievable. The highlight of the whole film is the final confrontation between Blade and Nomak, which is the best superhuman vs superhuman fight you will get from any comic book movie out today. It even tops the Spiderman vs Doc Ock fight on the train in Spidey 2, thats how good it is. Brutal and excellently coreographed its just a pleasure to watch.
The character of Blade has also lightened up a bit and throughout the movie slowly makes peace with what he is, with the help of love interest and Vampire Elder daughter Nyssa, played by the truly stunning Leonor Varela. Ron Perlman (yes Hellboy himself!) also makes an appearance as one of the bloodpack.Read more ›
Snipes is as suave as ever, running around and hitting anything which has fangs and, to be fair, the uber-vampires were a lot more scary than the normal ones (and proper gross too!). I always find the 'serum' device a bit pointless though, because with all the huge collections of blood that the vampires harbour, Blade wouldn't be doing anything ethically unsound by nicking some, would he? Moreover, with all the vampires around, one would think he could just suck their blood and have done--'poetic justice' springs to mind...
Another amusing point is Whistler's complete invulnerability (oh, by the way, he's NOT dead: clearly what REALLY happened in the first film is that he shot the ceiling by mistake, missing his head) because he gets kicked about so much in this film you'd think he'd have concussion at least, but no! The man is indomitable.
Anyhow, I quite enjoyed the film; as many have suggested, it makes for very easy watching and if you like watching Snipes moving his arms and legs at bewildering speeds, this is the film for you. I don't know why people have such high expectations for an action film of this type: yes there are glaring gaps and contradictions but, really, if you look at 'Blade II' whimsically, the complete lack of sensibleness just adds to the fun.
