Blade II

  • Film
  • Horror films
This flashy, eye-catching sequel recaps the first film in the credit sequence, re-introducing Snipes' 'day-walker' (half-man, half-vampire), scourge of the bloodsuckers. Upping the ante on the original, Blade and Whistler (Kristofferson) are drawn into an alliance with their foe against a new, bald, cannibalistic strain that is invulnerable to garlic and silver, but unlikely to get a suntan anytime soon. The influences are eclectic as before - Marvel comics, Hong Kong martial arts and Japanese samurai movies, video games and rap music - but stripped down to such basics as story and dialogue, it's nothing to get excited about.
