Blade II (2002)

Incredibly silly and perfunctory sequel. This exchanges the substance of the original film with bigger, faster thrills – more gore, more CGI, more kung fu. Most of it seems completely unnecessary, and the film is worryingly garbled and trashy viewing. Blade (Snipes) is recruited by the bitey critters he loathes to train the Blood Pack in their quest to take on a new monster which feeds on both humans and vampires. The writers seem to be making up the rules as they go along, and although the performances aren’t totally inept, the script lets things down. Not even Donnie Yen or Kat from Red Dwarf can salvage it.
