Storyline Heading
Blade is half man and half vampire and consumed by a desire to avenge the curse of his birth and save the human race from a blood-drenched Armageddon. Blade must align himself with a high-powered team of vampires to take on a greater evil than either has ever faced -- a new kind of super-vampire that is itself on a vicious hunt to eradicate both races.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - Very similar to the first "Blade," with nearly nonstop action consisting of sword fights, gun battles and chases. It's very "over- the-top" in its intensity. I believe this one is even more graphic than the original. It's certainly not for those with a weak stomach.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Blade II is less obsessed with its hero as a fashion statement of new-millennium demon chic than the first Blade was. The new film seems equally influenced by videogames and open-heart surgery. (The directer) lays on the operatic head-trip gore, but his heavy-handed embrace of the ''Blade'' mythology allows Wesley Snipes to give more of a performance than he did in the first film.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "The film stays true to its unpretentious origins - it's like a comic book come to life, with an undeniable visual flair, a lot of kinetic action sequences, minimal character development, and a plot that could charitably be called "uneven". In actuality, significant chunks of the movie don't make a lot of sense, but logic was plainly not a top priority on the filmmakers' agenda.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "...a really rather brilliant vomitorium of viscera, a comic book with dreams of becoming a textbook for mad surgeons. The movie is an improvement on "Blade" (1998), which was pretty good.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "
Action-packed but ugly, the movie hasn't a shred of dead or undead humanity aside from a few funny insults. The rest is desperate: gouging, kicking, flying, stabbing, riding on an opponent's back and other stuff... Snipes gives a looser, cooler performance this time around, though emotionally, it's closer to dead than undead. Blade II is for the horror faithful only..."

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

VERY HIGH OPINIONS! An unusually high number of "Fantastic" opinions with virtually no real low opinions makes this a movie I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! While this is obviously more of a "guy" movie, it did extremely well with the ladies. If this looks like a movie you would enjoy, DON'T MISS IT!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
This is a great sequel to the original. I believe this one has even more action and graphic violence. And the special effects are outstanding. I have no doubt fans will be very pleased with the quality of "Blade II." For fans, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
