Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
A ruthless new breed of vampires threatens both the dead and the undead in Blade II, the high-speed sequel to 1998's adaptation of the action-horror comic book. Wesley Snipes returns as the titular half-vampire, a "daywalker" sworn to eliminate all bloodsuckers in the coolest possible way. After reviving his captured mentor, Whistler Kris Kristofferson, Blade finds himself enlisted by his own enemies to help defeat the "Reapers," an evolved form of vampire that poses a serious threat to regular vamps and, quite possibly, humans. Reluctant yet cool, Blade teams with those he cannot trust, a crackerjack squad of vamps which includes a menacing Ron Perlman that prove to be as adversarial as the Reapers. The gore is intense, the action is fast-paced, and Snipes keeps up every step of the way, once again flying through the role of vampire hunter -- often literally. With so many faces returning from the first movie, the freshest aspect here is Mexican genre whiz Guillermo Del Toro Mimic in the director's chair. While maintaining the kinetic style of the original, Del Toro milks the film's Prague locale for some atmosphere and style, an approach that enhances the film's flair and makes it much more fun than your average horror sequel.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
1/2
You can sense the difference between a movie that's a technical exercise Resident Evil and one steamed in the dread cauldrons of the filmmaker's imagination.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
Like the original, Blade II has superior production values and visual and special effects. Snipes and Kristofferson build on the resonance of their original portrayals.
