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.

Stripped down to such basics as story and dialogue, it's nothing to get excited about.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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