"Twilight" popularly defined vampire cinema in the Zeroes. But Team Blade could execute every last sullen Cullen. When Blade turns full vampire - suplexing and flying-elbow-dropping people like a crazy Mexican luchador - 'tis pure fanboy nirvana.

Kris Kristofferson reprises his role as geezer Blade sidekick as blood splashes in all directions and legions of bodies incinerate before our eyes.

ather than a by the numbers sequel, Director Guillermo Del Toro has changed the tone by not only significantly increasing the amount of action & fighting, but adding a little bit of humour into the mix.

A totally gross-out film that has about as much depth as its comic-book inspiration, which is probably why it's so entertaining.

Surpassed the original in every way.

The joy in Blade II simply comes from watching Snipes as Blade doing his thing -- destroying vampires and whipping out martial arts on whomever gets too close.

Does anyone else miss the days when Snipes used to take chances and show his formidable stuff as both a comic and dramatic actor? Doesn't he miss those days?

The borderline-chaotic fight scenes, set to a deafeningly loud rap-rock/heavy metal score, are directed and edited for maximum kinetic impact.

Everything gets bogged down in one spectacularly gory action sequence after another.

Popcorn nonsense for sure, but shot with a wit, skill and understanding of its audience all too rarely seen in the genre.

Time Out
June 24, 2006
Stripped down to such basics as story and dialogue, it's nothing to get excited about.
Emanuel Levy
May 29, 2006
Gruseome violence, special effects, fast-moving action, and Del Torro's stylish cutting and framing can't conceal the blank space at the center of the screen, created by David Goyer's inept and uninvolving script.

It's so much adrenaline-pumped B-movie fun, it's nearly worth full price.

The fast-paced action is unnervingly fast, almost dizzying. The story is thin, the plot is predictable, but Wesley Snipes carries this comic book character off with enough clever humor and self-indulgent pathos to carry it off.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

The addition of just enough original ideas, has been, and hopefully will remain the key to keeping the franchise fresh, original and exciting.

If only as much time was spent on the script as was spent on the fight choreography.

Alas, when you're handed crap to start with, there's really no way to dress it up as anything but.
