Blade II is an awesome sequel to an awesome movie. With Guillermo del Toro at the helm, it was obvious that the creature effects for the Reapers would be outstanding. I was not disappointed.
Blade II is my favorite of the franchise and it stands out as not only a testament to action-horror, but as a great character piece for Guillermo del Toro to let loose with his creature designs, which definitely stands out during the House of Pain scene. It was cool to see Blade leading a pack of vampires who clearly want him dead, as well as the return of Kris Kristofferson and the introduction of a young Norman Reedus. This film clearly has a lot going for it.
