Blade II [Blu-ray]
Region 1 USA/CA (
In Guillermo del Toro's BLADE II, Wesley Snipes reprises his role as the part-human, part-vampire superhero based on the comic book character. Following a trail of blood that leads to Prague, Blade (aka the Daywalker) slays a legion of bloodsuckers in the search for his abducted mentor, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson). Soon Blade reluctantly joins forces with a band of skilled vampiric warriors called the Bloodpack to hunt down an even deadlier enemy--the monstrous Reapers, who prey on vampires and humans alike, infecting them with an incurable virus. In addition to battling these relentless new foes, Blade must deal with situations brought about by the Bloodpack's tenuous alliance --in particular, his attraction to the lovely Nyssa (Leonor Varela) and his rivalry with the brutish Reinhardt (Ron Perlman).
A hyperkinetic motion picture, BLADE II literally explodes onto the screen with hi-tech weaponry and stunning special effects. The fight sequences, choreographed by Hong Kong superstar Donnie Yen (who plays Bloodpack member Snowman), are remarkably hard-hitting and elaborate. The film also improves on the entertaining original by adding a darker, more visceral tone that's fleshed out by del Toro's stylish and brilliantly grotesque visuals. Both frightening and thrilling, BLADE II is sure to astound both horror and action fans alike.

"...BLADE II has superior production values and visual and special effects....Snipes again combines a formidable physical presence with a depth of feeling and capacity for reflection unusual for an incarnation of a comic book hero..."
Los Angeles Times
"....Dense on imagery, mood and plot. Happily, it exults in its lurid and gruesome absurdity....A 'B' picture in love with the zest of its comic-book origins, it embodies that medium's pulse-pounding spiritedness and silliness..."
New York Times
"...Snipes gives a looser, cooler performance this time around..."
"...There are twists and turns aplenty, zippy one-liners and enough firepower to flatten a major metropolis. BLADE II trumps its predecessor..."
"...Technically impressive....BLADE II is infused with maximum energy by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro..."
"...Darker, faster....There are plenty of gruesome or startling moments..."
Sight and Sound
"...What style, what energy and what a bloody great sequel..."
"...Snipes once again provides the proper amount of ultracool gravitas as he slices, dices, shoots and scores in the title role..."
"...A really rather brilliant vomitorium of viscera....The movie is an improvement on BLADE, which was pretty good..."
