Customer Review

on 26 August 2002
Blade 2 ups the action-quotient, body count and gore to provide a more violent, if slightly inferior, sequel.
The first thing that strikes you about Blade 2 is that it is very much designed to inform people who have not seen Blade what everything is, through a series of flashbacks and direct information. This can get a bit annoying if you have seen Blade, but it serves to jog the memory and isn't at all a bad thing when viewed retrospectively.
Blade 2 suffers mainly when it comes to continuity and plot. Many aspects of the first film have been either altered or left out (most notably the ommision of ANY references to Dr Karen Jensen) and the plot is weak when you consider it(although this does not make for a bad film).
However this aside Blade 2 is an intensely enjoyable and watchable experiance and Snipes and Kristofferson reprise their roles well, with solid performances from the British Danny-John-Jules (more commonly known as Cat in Red Dwarf) establishing his ability to act in a serious role in the big-time, and Luke Goss (formerly of Bros).
Blade 2 does not take itself as seriously as Blade which, in the end, saves it from failing as an action film by having any great tale of morality and instead concentrates on the superbly coreographed action sequences. The one-liners still come thick and fast and the film is very tounge-in-cheek in places. If you watched and enjoyed Blade then get this film and even if you didnt then still give it a shot, even if its only for the superb one-liners and action.
