    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, thoughThis 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. Expand

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Snipes gives a looser, cooler performance this time around, though emotionally, it's closer to dead than undead. Blade II is for the horror faithful only; others will be grasping their crucifixes.

    You can sense the difference between a movie that's a technical exercise ("Resident Evil") and one steamed in the dread cauldrons of the filmmaker's imagination.
  3. 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.
