This is one of those sequels that is a bit better than the first, although most people will disagree. It is obvious that the first film did have a much higher budget and more recognizable faces, but this film, like the first, does have a good variety of characters.As far as the action goes there is about the same amount as the first film (most appearing at the end), but this flick does have better cinematography and it was more suspenseful. The story itself isn't as deep as the first but it is just as good. The ending fight scene was more enjoyable as well. It does a complete 180 compared to the first. Instead of a handful of people taking on a whole bunch of vampires there are 4 vampires taking on a whole bunch of humans (mostly cops). In the entire movie there were maybe only 5-6 vampires total, so if your looking for a bunch of vampires like the first you will be disappointed. Don't be fooled though, just because there are only 4 vampires at the end doesn't mean there isn't a blood fest. As a matter of fact this movie is as gory as the first, maybe even gorier.When all is bitten and done this movie isn't anything spectacular, but if your in the mood for a good western vampire tale then this movie should quench your thirst just fine.
