The second piece of this vampire hunter trilogy blurs the lines between Action, Super Hero and Horror, which personally I’m kinda liking.
This time around, Blade (Wesley Snipes; New Jack City, Chaos), Abraham Whistler (Planet of the Ape, Provinces of Night) and new arrival Scud (Norman Reedus; The Boondock Saints, Pandorum) must team up with the Blood Pack, made up of Dieter Reinhardt (Ron Perlman; Hellboy, Outlander), Nyssa Damaskinos (Hell Ride, Wrong Turn at Tahoe), Chupa (Matt Schulze; The Transporter, The Fast and the Furious), Asad (Danny-John Jules; Red Dwarf, Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels), Snowman (Donnie Yen; IP Man, Highlander: Endgame), Verlaine (Marit Kile; Doctors, Blue Murder), Priest (Tony Curran; The Midnight Meat Train, Underworld: Evolution), and Lighthammer (Daz Crawford; Hammer of the Gods, Game Over) in order to defeat UberVamp Jared Nomak (personal favourite Luke Goss; Death Race 2, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Tekken) and his army of Reaper Strain Vampires.
With me so far? No? Then go watch the damn movie! It’s very fucking good. The opening is almost as strong as the original, and pretty much everything else about it is better. Not to mention the fact that I’m a total Luke Goss fanboy. All of the characters are so much better. They interact and everything. And even though Wesley Snipes has never really impressed me as an actor, the character of Blade was a little less cheesy, which always helps, and basically just better all ’round.
SPOILERS FOR BLADE, BLADE II and TRINITY: An interesting point, without ruining anything about the trilogy is that in all three films, vampires fight vampires. Not in the whole “Blade’s half a vampire so he kills full-on vampires” way, although there is most certainly that, but in Blade, Frost kills the Elder vampires to become La Magra. In Blade II, The Blood Pack and Blade team up to take down a new, much more dangerous breed of vampires. And in Trinity, Dracula goes around killing vampires, pretty much for fun. Just food for thought. I’ve never read the comics much myself, so I don’t really know if that’s something that’s been going on for a while, or if it just turned out that way.
There were a couple of lame bits. Some very stupid lines like “they took all of our weapons. Even your sword.” Even your sword! Man, the single weapon for which you were named after that has killed more vampires than any other thing on the planet, and the vampires took it away from you? The audacity! And there’s this whole thing where Whistler is alive again, they went most of the way to explaining it, and then sort of forgot. It would have been so simple to have a four second flashback cover the lot of it. Oh well.
Still though, I’m very, very fond of this one.
Blade II is the perfect marriage of fanboy and filmmaker. Everything you’d want out of a Blade movie – gore, martial arts, gunplay, clever quips, and techno music – is here to the nth degree. Best of all, it’s filmed and choreographed with absolute mastery (thanks Donnie Yen!)
Guillermo del Toro never forgets to include his more artistic side. Detailed creature anatomy, amazing creature design, an understanding of where to put the camera, and great characters. It’s all here.
Blade II is an incredible action picture and even though some of the CGI looks dated (it really just adds to the charm), Blade II is as exhilarating today as it was in 2002.
More Advanced Than the Original.
A worthy sequel and a better experience for the Blade character adaptation in the cinema world, Blade has to form an alliance with the vampire council in order to defeat the Reapers, a new common enemy to both vampires and humans.
In an advanced plot to the original with adding a new characters and a new race of creature, this sequel is one of few to rise above its predecessor. To avoid going into details, Blade II is still have its share of good, predictable ending and illogical actions/consequences, yet it is clearly has an advanced plot concept and script writing skills and with the introduction of a new “villainous” race, the reduction level of cliché phrases, shots and fighting senses along with the notable advance of CGI and an appropriate use of a better soundtrack, makes Blade II a much better action packed experience with a higher level of creepiness and scares.
I have a weak spot for comic-book action. Something about the mix between today and the supernatural has always drawn me to it. And i found the first “Blade” to be one of the more entertaining in the genre.
Blade (Wesley Snipes) has been looking for his old-time companion Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) for a long time. Whistler was taken captive by vampires and Blade has slaughtered his way through the vampire clans of several countries to find him. Now though there is another threat to the human race that also affects the vampires themselves. Soon Blade is given an offer he can’t refuse, resulting in a unholy alliance between the vampires and their greatest enemy.
Guillermo del Toro is a man with what the Germans would term “fingerspitzengefühl”. He’s got that special feeling for what works on screen, especially when it comes to movies like this one. Blade 2 refines most of the elements seen in the first Blade movie. This is a violent and action-filled journey into a comic-book world and del Toro is not taking any prisoners. Wesley Snipes seems to enjoy himself as Blade and most of the other actors also seem to blend in nicely in the mood of the film.
There were only a few minor flaws that bothered me. Most of all the sometimes shaky CGI-work. Some of the special effects look cheap to say the least. Especially the use of digital “stand-ins” for the actors that are used in some action scenes to spice them up a bit. All in all though this is an entertaining ride in it’s overblown testosterone-rich way. I rate it 6/10.
