I personally thought this was better than the first movie. The action scenes were thrilling and the plot and script were well written as I didn't see any of the twists coming, particularly the one concerning Nomak's (Luke Goss) relationship to Damaskinos (Thomas Kretschmann). One of the things I liked about the first film was that the vampires were actually proper vampires and the second film improves on that. The Reapers are absolutely gross when they feed on vampires but that adds to the tension and excitement. After the first film highlighted Blade's (Wesley Snipes) hatred for vampires, it was interesting to see him work with them to bring down the Reapers. Although most vampires appear to be evil, Nyssa (Leonor Varela) proves that not all plot to dominate humanity. She was just as taken in by her father Damaskinos' lies as I was. I was surprised to see actors such as Norman Reedus (Scud) and Ron Perlman (Reinhardt) in this film but they were great additions to the cast and I also did not see them being the ones to betray Blade during the third act. Wesley Snipes proves once again why he was well cast as Blade in the first film. If Christopher Reeve was born to play Superman, then Wesley Snipes was born to play Blade. Overall, Blade 2 is a great film. You don't have to be a fan of comic book movies to like this. If you're looking for two hours of blood, gore, real vampires and action, then the Blade movies are for you.

As ever, Blade II is more about machoism than plot. The special effects also seemed a bit lame at times: you could almost see the CG in operation! However, if you watch this film with low to middling expectations, as I did, it won't be as disappointing as some critics on amazon have held it to be.

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.

Really enjoyed the sequel but got rid of it because it was dvd and not blu ray but finally decided to re purchase it since was longing to re watch this great film.
