More fun than shooting a cannon full of razor blades into a cattle pen . . . the biggest problem I had, however, was the lack of any real compelling central villain

...The film works much better as a tongue-in-cheek comedy than a thriller, but I doubt del Toro intended that.

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

With a confidence that would verge on the arrogant if they hadn't got the smarts to back it up, del Toro and Snipes have shamed the competition with their flair, set pieces and badass wit.

Delivers killer action with its signature mix of vampire slaying and vicious grace.

Blade II merges bits and pieces from fighting games, wire fu, horror movies, mystery, James Bond, wrestling, sci-fi and anime into one big bloody stew.

The action is more heavily stylized and energetic, not to mention Del Toro gives Snipes greater opportunity to show off his martial arts moves.

Vampire epic succeeds as spooky action-packed trash of the highest order.

Benefits greatly from the presence of Mexican horror maestro director Guillermo del Toro, delivering action, blood, gore and guts in crowd-pleasing fashion.

No one can call it great art, but as bloody-vampire-shoot-'em-ups go, it is great fun.

It culminates in some pretty amazing fights and plot twists, and you may rest assured that good eventually triumphs, none the worse for wear except being drenched in blood.

Montreal Film Journal

This second instalment (in what is to be a trilogy) tries to crank things up even more than in the action packed original, which makes for an obnoxiously hyper-active movie.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Del Toro balances action and atmosphere masterfully -- it's a better video game movie than Resident Evil, even if it's based on a comic book.

Shadows on the Wall

Mexican director Del Toro takes the reins for this followup to the successful 1998 vampire thriller, and the result is considerably better. Which isn't saying much.

There's plenty of style in Guillermo Del Toro's sequel to the 1998 hit but why do we need 117 minutes to tell a tale that simply can't sustain more than 90 minutes.

Cinema em Cena

Da primeira seqüência de luta à piada que encerra a história, o espectador jamais desgruda os olhos da tela, saindo do cinema com a sensação de que gastou bem seu dinheiro.

Tiene fallas gigantescas. En su guión hay sacrificio de lógica y continuidad en pos de las escenas de acción; y las actuaciones van del estereotipo a la parodia.

| Original Score: 6/10

June 8, 2002

Take away everything that was original about BLADE, add some exploding vampires, bad acting, and vampire night at the WWF - you get BLADE II, a knock-off, rip-off waste of film, released to suck the blood (and money) out of audiences everywhere.

A little faster, a little deeper and a whole lot more grotesque than the original.
