Blade 2

A Film Review By Jason L. King

Starring:Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Ron Perlman 
Directed By:Guillermo del Toro 
Rated: Rated R for strong pervasive violence, language, some and drug use 

Final Grade: 

Half human, Half Vampire, all killing machine. Blade Returns to the big screen this weekend, with the slayer in a new time, where he must learn the importance of keeping your friends close, but your enemies closer. When Blade’s enemies approach him for his aid in fighting a new breed of Super Vampires that will destroy both mankind and vampires, Blade is forced to join them in their slaying quest, which leads them into a continuous spiral of action.

Blade 2 was one of the most promising sequels I have seen in a while. I was very skeptical going into the film, especially since I saw that Kris Kristofferson would return. However, the writers managed to make his return to the story, fairly believable. Blade’s new partner in slaying is no Kristofferson, so it was nice to have Kristofferson back. The only problem with the movie is that Blade must have solved the “Serum” problem he was having in the first movie, since it was never even an issue in the sequel. Snipes no BS, “ass kicking” attitude is just as entertaining as the first one, and the death count is higher, but I’m not sure if that gave Blade 2 it’s overall edge. The special effects, and the decent plot made the movie, however by the time blade slays the 20th Vampire you start to wish for a new sort of effect.

Blade overall was like I stated earlier one of the best sequels I had seen in a while. A decent flick to check out in theaters especially if you enjoyed the first one. A little less plot, and a lot more martial arts and action makes Blade lack something that makes it a great, but it’s enough to make Blade fans wish for yet another movie in the series…
