Blade II (2002)

Guillermo Del Toro

Half-human, half-vampire Wesley Snipes, pictured) returns in this sequel to the blockbuster fantasy action adventure Blade.

Certain that his mentor Abraham Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) is still alive, Blade seeks him out. After a two-year search, Whistler is found, rescued and cleansed of the vampire taint. In the interim, a new breed of bloodsucker, "The Reaper Strain", has emerged.

Vampire overlord Damaskinos (Thomas Kretschmann) sends an emissary, his daughter Nyssa (Leonor Varela), to plead for Blade's intervention against this new threat. He agrees, forming a group of elite vampire warriors, and begins an assault. From the outset, it's clear this new opponent will not be easily toppled...

Unlike that other leather-and-lunge franchise, The Matrix, Blade managed one decent sequel. This was it. Everything is familiar, but comfortable: Blade has accepted his situation, Whistler's back and the script is still sharp and funny. As proven with Mimic and Hellboy, Guillermo Del Toro is perfect to direct this type of material. Injecting pace, colour and (most importantly) credibility, it's hard to imagine the film would have flowed quite so well in other hands.
