Film review:- Blade II. Bloodlust...
Well it was off to the cinema again.  What a bad job.....  This time on our hit list was Blade 2.   After Blade my exportations where high and yes again.....  WOW!    Del Toro's direction is fantastic to say the least. The music well, some times a bit dry but it is still good.   The biggest problem is not with  character design and art consulting by comic-book masters Timothy Bradstreet and Mike Mignola but a week plot that has a lot of holes in it.   But nothing is perfect.   The sets, using  the decaying inner cities of Eastern Europe  gives the film has a consistently strong texture of fear that is often lacking in this type of film. The "Bloodpack's" costumes and equipment hold very strong detail that again gives added wait and makes the action very believable.  The plot outline is simple; Blade forms an uneasy alliance with the vampire council in order to combat the Reapers vampires who feed on vampires and humans alike, but all is not what is seems.  As ever the hi kicking action leads Blade to find his old long lost father finger in a vat of Blood and rescues him to help Blade rid the world of yet more evil.  With strong language, pervasive violence Blade enters a world of drug use and sex, bondage as well as torture as he explores the world of the Vampires.  Overall a good sequel that has to get four stars out of five, due to the plot being a bit week in places. Now I'm waiting for the next  film "Hell Boy" with baited breath!
