Blade II is an incredibly upbeat picture, and rather than focus on Blade's loneliness or how he's humanity's protector and yet can never truly be one of them, del Toro gleefully jumps into the action scenes.

The best installment of the saga and one of the clearest examples of the splendid handling of the cinematographic narrative treasured by the Mexican filmmaker. [Full Review in Spanish]

There's no script to speak of, but del Toro devises every battle to wow even the most jaded martial-arts mavens; the dissolutions and implosions are beautiful.
July 14, 2015
In the inventive fight scenes, [Blade's] sword clangs, and there are sluicing sounds when it finds its target, all in keeping with the unapologetic bang! blam! pop! comic-book spin director Guillermo Del Toro brings to the film.
July 14, 2015
Del Toro's aim is brutally simple: to give your adrenalin glands a bootcamp work-out. Granted, the spin-dry visuals and hectic tempo mean the style is the content -- but what style, what energy and what a bloody great sequel.

It's a fabulous-looking package, elegantly orchestrated by del Toro, who has an unerring eye for undead iconography, which he takes to visually imaginative extremes.

The frenetic fight scenes are too fast for non-vampire eyes, but those familiar with the original should find plenty to like.

The world can always use another entertainingly trashy B-movie, and Blade II fits the bill.
July 14, 2015
Del Toro has Blade II timed to the emotional beat, and it flows from track to track like your favorite CD mix.

"Twilight" popularly defined vampire cinema in the Zeroes. But Team Blade could execute every last sullen Cullen. When Blade turns full vampire - suplexing and flying-elbow-dropping people like a crazy Mexican luchador - 'tis pure fanboy nirvana.

Kris Kristofferson reprises his role as geezer Blade sidekick as blood splashes in all directions and legions of bodies incinerate before our eyes.

ather than a by the numbers sequel, Director Guillermo Del Toro has changed the tone by not only significantly increasing the amount of action & fighting, but adding a little bit of humour into the mix.
September 8, 2009
A totally gross-out film that has about as much depth as its comic-book inspiration, which is probably why it's so entertaining.

Surpassed the original in every way.
November 21, 2008
The joy in Blade II simply comes from watching Snipes as Blade doing his thing -- destroying vampires and whipping out martial arts on whomever gets too close.

one of my favourite vampire flicks
| Original Score: 4.5/5
April 18, 2007
The borderline-chaotic fight scenes, set to a deafeningly loud rap-rock/heavy metal score, are directed and edited for maximum kinetic impact.
December 30, 2006
Popcorn nonsense for sure, but shot with a wit, skill and understanding of its audience all too rarely seen in the genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 26, 2006
It's so much adrenaline-pumped B-movie fun, it's nearly worth full price.
February 24, 2004
The fast-paced action is unnervingly fast, almost dizzying. The story is thin, the plot is predictable, but Wesley Snipes carries this comic book character off with enough clever humor and self-indulgent pathos to carry it off.
| Original Score: 3/4
