(Review originally written at 12 September 2004)

Blade is back! And unlike many other sequels this movie doesn't disappoint.

The movie is just as entertaining as the first Blade movie was. However they tried a bit too hard to surpass the first movie. They added a bigger budget, a more complex story, more fancy special effects and more deadly vampires but in this case bigger is not better...

Blade (Wesley Snipes) is as cool as ever. Also returning in this movie is the character Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), which in my opinion was not a that good idea. I never have been a big fan of characters returning from the dead for a sequel. Added in this movie are some more cool vampires. The bloodpack is awesome especially Ron Perlman as Reinhardt of course but I also liked Tony Curran (Priest) and Donny Yen (Snowman). The main villain might be a little bit disappointing compared to Deacon Frost from the first Blade movie but there are still some nice scene's and some spectacular fights with the main villain from this movie; Nomak (Luke Goss).

Yet again it are especially the fights and action sequence's that impress although there is some overuse of special effects during some action sequences at times.

Compared to the first movie, this one is more horror like which is thanks to Mexican director Guillermo del Toro who knows to create an even darker atmosphere and adds some good and gross horror scene's.

Maybe not as good as the first but still very entertaining and cool. Bring on "Blade: Trinity"!
