Aptly described by critic Roger Ebert as "a vomitorium of viscera," Blade II takes the express route to sequel success.
So if you enjoyed Blade, you'll probably drool over this monster mash, which is anything but boring.
Set (and filmed) in Prague, the plot finds a new crop of "Reaper" vampires threatening to implement a viral breeding program, and they're nearly impervious to attacks by Blade (Wesley Snipes), his now-revived mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) , and a small army of "normal" vampires who routinely combust in a constant conflagration of spectacular special effects.
It's up to Blade to conquer the über-vamps, and both Snipes and director Guillermo del Toro (Mimic) serve up a nonstop smorgasbord of intensely choreographed action, creepy makeup, and graphic ultraviolence.
It's sadistic, juvenile, numbing, and--for those who dig this kind of thing--undeniably impressive. With the ever-imposing Ron Perlman as a vampire villain
