  1. Del Toro ("Cronos") is a stylish horrormeister, and he has created an evocative, foreboding atmosphere. But only a fan of this kind of mayhem could find a way into the story.

    It was possible to hope that Blade II would turn out to be good. Well, forget it.
  3. Against the rest of his dramatically flimsy crew, Snipes' sunglasses-at-midnight strut conveys an almost lifelike sheen. Almost. He's more alive than the movie, which is dead on arrival.
  4. 25
    So witless it wins most of its laughs when Czech-speaking characters spout obscenities that get translated into English subtitles.
  5. The big news in Blade II is that there's something worse than vampires, but is there something worse than Blade II?

    Blade 2 is just as good as Blade 1. The action is great and plentiful as in the first movie. However this time,
    the style of the action scenes is different because the director is different. The director of Hellboy directed
    Blade 2 and he turned the movie into an action masterpiece. He was a great choice to direct the sequel,
    I would've chose him in a second.

    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.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.

    This movie gives a few good laughs, offers entertaiment, and has some action that is nothing out of the usual, but well-made nonetheless -This movie gives a few good laughs, offers entertaiment, and has some action that is nothing out of the usual, but well-made nonetheless - with good actors. Continues from "Blade", but things are pretty well explained in the beginning. Also, perhaps it was just me, or Blade had perfected his act (fighting and weaponry) from the first movie. Not much character growth can be detected, though a few twists in the plot give insight. Also, what they dismissed in the first movie was romance - for the good of the film. In "Blade II", unfortunately, that is not the case. Full Review »
