    'Blade 2' takes place two years after the original and opens with Blade looking for his mentor and weapons master, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson). When Blade last left Whistler, he believed that his friend was dead. But the truth is almost worse: he has been infected with the vampire virus. Blade eventually tracks him down and gives him an antidote. His new partner, the brilliant inventor Scud (Norman Reedus), is none too pleased at having the old man back in their fold, but the three soon learn they have bigger problems to face in the shape of The Reapers.


    With their razor sharp teeth, lightning speed and super inhuman power, this mutated form of vampire are infiltrating humanity and vampires alike with the "Reaper Strain" that will leave thousands of carriers roaming the streets. The only way for Blade to stop them is to align his skills with the Bloodpack, a crew of hardened killers originally created to hunt Blade himself.. The infected trail leads back to the Reaper's first born, Jared Nomak (Luke Goss), and Blade and the Bloodpack must destroy him before the human race is wiped out forever.


    The bonus second disc contains almost 3 hours of features. Production Workshop - Director's Notebook: an interactive reproduction of director's notes with an introduction by Del Toro, A Pack In Blood: an interactive collection of original documentaries on the production, storyline etc and Art Gallery; original theatrical press kit; deleted/alternate scenes; music video: Cypress Hill and Roni Size Child Of the Wild West and theatrical trailers.

    Neil, Goodwood. 20 January 2003

    I was fortunate to able attend a preview screening of Blade II last night courtesy of Nu Metro. In anticipation of the screening I re-watched the Blade DVD on Sunday night just to get into the right frame of mind.

    After a about a twenty minute delay before the movie started due to waiting for some video rental people to arrive, Blade II started. And the verdict is? Well I’m happy to report the only thing sucking in the movie was the vicious Reaper Vampires. J Mexican director Guillermo del Toro has made a truly excellent balls-to-the-wall all out action flick. Blade II is a superb blend of furious martial arts action combined with the mind numbing horror of a new breed of vampires called Reapers.

    After an explosive start to the movie, where Blade (Wesley Snipes) hacks, slashes and blasts to fiery bits with silver bullets a group of vampire as he tries to locate the whereabouts of his friend and mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) from the first Blade movie, the movie sets an relentless pace.

    Blade gets a request from the Vampire Nation to help find and eliminate the Reapers who represent a real threat to both vampires and humans. With a help of a specially trained group of vampire assassins, The Blood Pack, the action moves from one blood drenched epic set piece to the next.

    Guillermo del Toro, has infused Blade II with a far grittier look and feel. This is in sharp contrast to the techno glitz of the first movie. The special effects are better this time round, especially the spectacular fiery deaths of the vampires and effects of the Reapers when they feed on their victims. The bloody anatomically nature of the Reapers makes this a movie not for the squeamish of nature to watch.

    With enough plot twists amongst to all the action to help keep you guessing until the end as to what is going to happen, Blade II is a worthy follow-up to Blade and should not be missed by fans. I can’t wait to watch it again when it gets released on the cinema circuit on July.

    This is one of those rare occasions where the sequal is just as good as the original - if not better.

    Philip, South Africa. 23 April 2014

    Never could really make my mind up on this one, although the appearance of Ron Perlman has a nice switch to it and keeps the air tense. The reappearance of Kris Kristofferson had to happen I suppose, and the re-emergence is believable. I feel they tried to make the second blade more gruesome by adding a more ruthless enemy, whether it works, I am still unsure. Worth the watch, only slightly up on the first though. Snipes still consistent in his role.

    It's really good.
