The second installment in this franchise has more of what made the original so enjoyable and entertaining, but ultimately falls a little short of reaching the same level of greatness. I did enjoy seeing Norman Reedus and Ron Pearlman added to the cast, they were really fun to watch, and Wesley Snipes was still great as Blade. The plot just seemed not to be executed as well as it could have been, but there was still enough to make for a solid follow up to a really good film

This sequel doesn't really live up to the first one at all. It is still entertaining enough, but I just didn't enjoy it as much. This one has Blade teaming up with vampires to hunt a new breed of vampire that is resistant to vampire weaknesses and also feeds on other vampires. Ron Perlman is great in this one as a bad attitude, wise cracking vampire that hates Blade.

Better than the first only because the hip hop soundtrack and Norman Reedus earn it the extra half star.

Managing to be darker than its predecessor without having to sacrifice all the stylish action, Blade II, while its plot still feels a bit convoluted, successfully manages to prove Guillermo del Toro's efforts, including his second collaboration with Ron Perlman (because, let's face it, Perlman would never have been famous if it wasn't for del Toro)

Blade returns thinking his mentor Whistler is dead only to discover he's alive with the vampire virus. He sets off to save his dear friend. Much like its predecessor, this sequel is action packed entertainment.

This very well be my most watched movie of all time and I never get bored of it.

Easily the best of the Blade films and the credit clearly goes to director Guillermo del Toro who leaves his unmistakable fingerprints all over this film. The creativity he brought to the creatures in the film, particularly the reapers, the various weapons, to the costumes, and to the overall production design all have a similar look to his other films such as "Pan's Labyrinth," "Mimic," or the Hellboy series. The first Blade film had an amazing opening scene with the vampire blood bath rave, but the filmmakers made the mistake of having to subsequence scene top that one and the rest of the film was merely a slick piece of entertainment. The third film was an obvious pander to gain a wider audience with it's PG-13 rating and inclusion of more humor, with was a low point for the series. This second film is the clear high point. David S. Goyer wrote all three films, but it's all del Toro who makes this film special. The story involves Blade making an unlikely alliance with the Vampire Council to rid the world of a new breed of vampire called Reapers. Wesley Snipes is good in the lead and Kris Kristofferson is alway a treat in any role. The supporting cast is particularly strong here though with Ron Perlman as a Vampire Council special forces operative who's looking for any excuse to end the alliance and kill Blade. I was also surprised when re-watching this film to see Norman Reedus of "The Walking Dead" fame in the film. I remembered the character, but had never placed Reedus in this film, even though he still has the same Daryl Dixon hair, but he's quite good as Blade's gadget-maker helper. The top that all off with the vastly under-appreciated Donnie Yen as part of the Vampire Council fighters and gets to show off in a few excellent marital arts sequences. Yen is also credited as the film's fight choreographer and most of the fights in this film are quite a cut above the other two Blade films. I remember when this film first came out, when I read Roger Ebert's review and there was no way I could NOT see this film after seeing Ebert start his review describing the film as a "brilliant vomitorium of viscera." That sentence pretty well lets any potential viewer know if they would be interested in this film or not. I was very taken by the vomitorium.

La pelicula menos lograda de Guillermo del Toro. Si acaso vale el esfuerzo de verla es como defiende su estilo ludico, sin hacer a un lado las emocionantes coreografias.

A sequel that is as good as the original, great story and a even better effects. Great characters and the movie serves it justice.

Great action, neat characters, fun weapons, cool villains = a lot of fun. I'd buy this series if I wasn't so low on cash and buying movies didn't seem so stupid right now.

Surpasses the original in every way: Better style, better visuals, better camera work, better effects, better story, better action scenes, creative new and cool looking villain and an epic finale battle.

This movie is simply put: The best Blade movie.

The trilogy could of be better if Guillermo del Toro did all of them because this is the best of the three. B

Hey, I didn't know Guillermo del Toro directed this and Norman Reedus (Walking Dead's Darryl) is in it! Cool ultraviolet daylight weapons but the graphics looks like a few games at Dave & Busters (House of the Dead and Street Fighter).
