  1. To appreciate the movie, you have to be okay with vampire violence. I don't mean subtle little nips at the neck and, ooooh, it's directed by Werner Herzog.
  2. Ghastly yet wonderful at the same time.

    The drawing card for Blade II is -- the promise of a blood-soaked action/horror thrill ride, and Snipes and Del Toro get the down-and-dirty job done with style.

    May be too grisly to extend its appeal beyond its fan base.

    Suffers from way too many fight scenes that last way too long and look way too computer-generated.
  6. 40
    The sequences are handsomely designed, but frankly, you might as well be watching someone play a video game.

    What I like about Guillermo Del Toro is that every movie he makes has beautifully gruesome visuals that overrides all the cons of the movie. "Blade 2" is a good example im talking about. Expand

    Even though the plot and character development have hardly improved from the original, this sequel delivers more stylish action and grimmer visuals than the original thanks to Del Toro's upscale direction. Expand

    Critics have often noted Blade 2 as the superior film in the franchise, I disagree. The amount of poorly done computer effects, overflow of characters and script make this film a lot to be desired. Expand
