I have a soft spot for this one. It has a sillier tone than the first with more over the top characters and designs, but that just makes it feel more comicbooky which suits me fine. Snipes is fun to watch, and knowing how crazy this guy can be on set makes it even more amusing. The movie starts to lose steam halfway through as it doesn't really build up to anything worth feeling invested in. And wasting Donnie Yen like this, c'mon guys. Not cool.

Richer, more thematically potent sequel to the schlocky action original, "Blade II" ups the ante with it's collection of goey, vaginal monsters and covert monster ops. An icky good time.

I know the first film wasn't great, but whatever charm it had, it's all missing here. The film is just a pointless action scene after another. Everything feels forced, cliched and the characters are entirely boring. Don't bother with this one.

Upon first glance Blade II is a relatively stupid movie. The story doesn't make sense, the enemy is ridiculous, and the moves Blade does are a little too cheesy. But after all is said and done Blade II is a thoroughly entertaining popcorn flick that knows exactly what it is and does a good job of establishing itself.

Helmed by one Guillermo del Toro, "Blade II" is a definite upgrade on the 1998 original. The choreographies are great, Wesley Snipes is more enjoyable, the supporting cast features not only Kris Kristofferson but also Ron Perlman, Norman Reedus and Donnie Yen, the plot is very engaging and the twists towards the end spice things up considerably. Overall, it's a very enjoyable actioner, not only but even more so when compared to the slightly hit-and-miss first film.

This is not a masterpiece by any stretch but del Toro brings a lot to table here. It has much better action scenes and the expanded cast doesn't hurt either. The visuals of del Toro are apparent as it gets weird, which is good. It also goes to some very interesting places plot-wise and actually makes me care for some of the still morally reprehensible vampires which is admirable.

Solid action-horror hybrid that is still rather unique. Del Toro, with the help of Carol Spier, creates wonderfully dank and dim warehouse and sewer environments to stage bloody violent mayhem. Snipes is more confident in the role than he was in the original and Luke Goss makes a surprisingly good villain. The makeup effects are still quite impressive, and the design of the vampire's bifurcated jaw with protruding tongue--seemingly inspired by Alien--was a nice touch.

Mexican horror maestro Guillermo del Toro morphs allows the titular vampire hunter into the king of all insects. Even when del Toro is under studio control, there's no suppressing his spiritual, entomological freaky-deakyness. In Blade II, signature del Toro obsessions are on fierce display: a monarch's fear of aging, his incessant desire to suspend time and his messianic opponent's own conflicted sense of past and future.

Just as good as the first. There's a few inconsistencies and some fairly bad dialogue, but del Toro really knows how to deliver interesting creatures, awesome action, and as always, Snipes is a perfect fit for the role.

Top badass moment? Along with (most of) the Terminator films, Wesley Snipes makes the wearing of sunglasses, indoors, in gloomy conditions, in the middle of a fight to the death, seem both cool AND sensible. Wish I could do that. They don’t look good on me even in sunshine. I just wasn’t born with a ‘sunglasses face’. And how does he keep them on? They don’t even seem to go behind his ears. 3 cats (running around in the blood donor centre), 1 decapitation (at least) and no chainsaws.

One-ups the basic vampire narrative by having vampires hunted by better and more ridiculous vampires - and we're using Ron Perlman as the basis for analysis, here. I wanted to kill the piss-ant Scud and the horrible computer FX, but the rest of the film is saved by del Toro's visual flair and originality. This is the highlight of the series, and one of the best Superhero sequels.

Blade II was better than the first movie in large part because of Guillermo del Toro. You can see his signature strangeness in this movie and even some of the design choices seemed to be culled from his imagination. I'm not sure if that is just in my head or if he really did help make some of those decisions. Wesley Snipes has always been a great Blade. Kristofferson is a great character actor in anything. Ron Perlman, a del Toro mainstay, made this movie great too. I don't like Reedus.

While not being as consistent as the original, I do find it’s highs to be even better than the original. It admittedly gets even goofier than the original, but I’d say adding Ron Perlman and Norman Reedus make it fun as hell just from a entertainment standpoint. Ultimately, you have to have a specific lens when watching these days, and sure does character development really happen here? No, but I think we all can get behind Wesley Snipes slicing vampires up for 2 hours.

Donnie Yen is better at everything (acting, martial arts, and screen presence) compared with Wesley Snipes but he was totally wasted in this movie. It's a shame because Blade 2 could have been one step away from being a pretty good movie seeing as who was in the cast. Del Toro did create an entertaining schlock sequel but it falls short in so many ways.

Fixes most of the problems from the first one and is surprisingly good for a comic book action movie with vampires. The tone is slightly darker too and the story is okay in my book. Great performances by Snipes, Perlman and Kristofferson.

Oh, man. If they didn't have Scud in this, this'd be such an awesome movie. His character is THAT abrasive. Anyway. It's the usual fare with guns and vampires, except that we have a monsterized mutated race of vampires that our hero has to fight, along with unwanted help from the awesome Ron Perlman. Good stuff, kids.

Though flawed, I still liked this sequel to Blade quite a bit. The design of the reapers and Del Toro's treatment of their story brought Blade more toward horror than the first movie. Unfortunately, Del Toro decided to get a little silly with the special effects and digitized Snipes far too often resulting in one of the worst moments in the movie...the fight in front of the lights. Nevertheless, the movie gives just enough "Blade" to make it enjoyable.

The best in the franchise. Del Toro brought his twisted imagination to this film to make it a fun, oftentimes uneasy superhero film that broke the mould. Blade showed us that super-hero films could be serious, this showed us they can be dark, and Trinity showed us that Ryan Reynolds should be band from saying dialogue. But this film is great.

With a more pointless plot than the original, Blade II was more about going big. It's still a lot of fun for any comic book action fan. The action was more intense, but the film lost some of the intrigue that the original had going for it, because we now already know that vampires are everywhere. Meh!

Dull and dreary action effort does at least have Del Toro's signature obsession with grotesquerie (and evisceration) on display to raise the pulse, but the storytelling is disappointingly generic and Snipes, Kristofferson and Varela make for bland leads (the only actor who brings a shot of welcome charisma is Perlman).

Not a bad action/vampire flick. But the 'new' vampires looked particularly weird and it was a little silly doing an autopsy on one of them. It was still entertaining though. First movie was the best of the Trilogy, which I would say this was the worst.

I'm not sure if I would say this is better or worse than the first film, but I think I enjoyed the first more, simply due to the variety of visual spectacle. This may be the more competent entry and the central premise is good, but both films are so lacking in substance and stakes (no, not that kind of stake) that it really just comes down to how entertaining they are. Blade II isn't hugely entertaining.

del Toro's earlier vampire film in his native Mexico, Cronos, was a genuinely original and thoughtful contribution to the genre. Here the only newness is in the sense that a late model automobile is new: new gadgets and gizmos, new special effects, a new two-way mouth opening -- vertical in addition to horizontal, for lustier bloodsucking -- and new Cronenbergian degrees of ickiness.

This sequel steps up largely thanks to great fight scenes, notably the first sword fight and the latter taze squad. It doesn't slump like the first movie and has some solid CGI when it comes to the Reapers jaws. The squad Blade leads could have been reduced as some are barely window dressing. New twists on ideas from the original work well. Blade 2 is less memorable than the original, but it is the better movie.

For the most part, Blade II takes everything that Blade did and made it better. The action was better, there was more humor, it actually, at times, worked as a horror film, and its story holds your interest instead of simply being an excuse to set-up action scenes. Everything has been improved in Blade II, and as a result, it's a rewarding action movie that's definitely worthy of a watch, especially if you enjoyed Blade.
