Overview

Four years after scoring a box-office touchdown with Blade (1998), actor Wesley Snipes returns to portray the Marvel Comics character again in this sequel that teams him with Mexican horror director Guillermo del Toro. A half-vampire, half-human hybrid, Blade (Snipes) is a merciless vampire hunter bent on destroying the bloodsuckers that feed on humanity. The keys to Blade's success are a serum that allows him to resist the urge for blood and an array of inventive, deadly weapons, both of which were once supplied by his mentor, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson). Since Whistler's death, Blade has relocated to Prague and recruited the pot-smoking slacker Scud (Norman Reedus) to take the place of his father figure, but then he discovers that Whistler's not dead after all: He's been infected with the vampire virus. Reunited with Whistler, Blade is dealt an even bigger surprise: His greatest enemy, vampire leader Damaskinos (Thomas Kretschmann), wants to make peace with him. It seems that the vampires are facing a greater threat than Blade and hope to persuade him to fight the Reapers, a mutated super-race of vampires on a rampage of murder, indiscriminately killing both humans and their fellow bloodsuckers while sucking their victims dry. Blade agrees to a truce and joins the Bloodpack, an elite squad of commandos originally formed to fight Blade himself. Soon, the vampire soldiers discover that the virus responsible for creating their enemies is spreading rapidly and can be traced back to a mysterious "Patient Zero." Blade 2 (2002) co-stars Ron Perlman, Leonor Varela, Donnie Yen, and Matt Schulze.

Editorial Reviews

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.
All Movie Guide
Wesley Snipes remains the perfect incarnation of the comic book vampire hunter Blade in this intense, bloody sequel that marks a new advance in the world of special effects. Director Guillermo Del Toro (Mimic, The Devil's Backbone) has a strong record in the horror genre and he manages to avoid the many traps of doing a sequel due in large part to David S. Goyer's strong script. In smartly resurrecting the half-human, half-vampire hero's seemingly dead partner, Whistler, Goyer has brought back actor Kris Kristofferson, who delivers a gritty, blue-collar performance that gives the steely, impersonal Blade a colorful foil. From there, Goyer's story puts the duo, along with a new helper (Norman Reedus), in an uneasy alignment with the vampire race against an almost indestructible super-breed of vampire. This straightforward setup allows Del Toro and his team (including noted Hong Kong fight coordinator Donnie Yen) to focus on the choreography of the film's plentiful fight scenes. The result is an action-packed hybrid of horror and martial arts that is easily one of the most exciting and most impressive displays of monster and special makeup effects to hit the screen since John Carpenter's 1982 creature extravaganza The Thing. The hundreds of effects shots reflects a collaboration of multiple effects companies doing visuals, prosthetics, makeup and CGI -- all of which come together in a seamless, visually stunning package. Throw in a fully charged club soundtrack and a Snipes performance that combines a ton of toughness with just enough sensitivity to make him (somewhat) human, and you've got a fantastic genre sequel that has style and cool to spare.
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.

    Not for the squeamish

    This movie is not for people who don't like gore. The movie did keep my interest until the end. The dvd extras are not bad either.

    A great sequel that no one should miss!

    Who says all sequels are not as good as the original? Well, Blade II is an exception. The visual effects are better than the first one and Wesley Snipes does an even better job than he did in the first one. Kris Kristofferson has a larger role but does a more impressive role of acting. The Reapers are cool and the acting of the Blood Pact make the film hard to miss. This film is surely better than the original that so many loved. If you loved the original, you will surely love this one.

    Worthy sequel

    I really enjoyed the first one (4 stars) but I didn't think the sequel was better. It was a little thin on plot and had some poor special effects. I will say Blade II was a rush to watch and there wasn't a dull moment. I can't wait for Blade III.

    The Best Action Movie Ever

    I saw this movie with my brother and cousin at the night show. And we were in aw. This is a movie to own for anyone who likes action and vampires. This is one of the few sequels that is as good or better than the first.
