Plot Summary:
"A rare mutation has occurred within the vampire community. The Reaper. A vampire so consumed with an insatiable bloodlust that they prey on vampires as well as humans, transforming victims who are unlucky enough to survive into Reapers themselves. Now their quickly expanding population threatens the existence of vampires, and soon there won't be enough humans in the world to satisfy their bloodlust. Blade, Whistler (Yes, he's back) and an armory expert named Scud are curiously summoned by the Shadow Council. The council reluctantly admits that they are in a dire situation and they require Blade's assistance. Blade then tenuously enters into an alliance with The Bloodpack, an elite team of vampires trained in all modes of combat to defeat the Reaper threat. Blade's team and the Bloodpack are the only line of defense which can prevent the Reaper population from wiping out the vampire and human populations."

It is about time that we had a new cool superhero. I am getting tired waiting for the new Superman incarnation to surface, and the first Blade film did not give me much hope that this sequel would be worth waiting for.

This is however a surprisingly good, fun superhero film. The plot is based around some very convoluted reasoning that leads Blade to work with a gang of vampires to help destroy a new breed of vampire who are a threat to both vampires and humans.

The director, Guillermo Del Toro is a master craftsman and it is due to his vision and skill that this film is an above average horror flick. His first film, the Spanish vampire movie ''Chronos' has given Del Toro previous experience in this genre, but his first film is yet to be surpassed in its unique and compelling story and style.

Del Toro uses his expertise to grow the character of Blade and turn him into a kick ass cool superhero. The first film was a missed opportunity that cleverly made Snipes look very old and tired - Not sure that's what a superhero should be personally.

Del Toro does such a great job that he even makes Luke Goss seem cool (he plays the villain) - admittedly he is hidden under 5 inches of make-up.

OVERALL SUMMARY
'Blade 2' is a superior gore/vampire film which breathes new life into this character and sets up the possibility for this series to run and run.
