Exploding from the pages of Marvel Comics comes the thrilling follow-up to the blockbuster “Blade.” Half Man … half vampire, and consumed by a desire to avenge the curse of his birth and save the human race from a blood-drenched Armageddon. In this newest action-packed adventure, Blade is forced to team up with the very vampires he hates in order to overcome a new type of monster which threatens to eradicate both races.
Director: Guillermo Del Toro
Cast: Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Ron Perlman, Leonor Varela, Norman Reedus
Review: Blade II is an incredibly upbeat picture, and rather than focus on Blade’s loneliness or how he’s humanity’s protector and yet can never truly be one of them, del Toro gleefully jumps into the action scenes. Del Toro’s aim is brutally simple: to give your adrenalin glands a bootcamp work-out. Granted, the spin-dry visuals and hectic tempo mean the style is the content — but what style, what energy and what a bloody great sequel.
Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
