So before there was, ‘Captain America’, before there was, ‘Iron Man’, before there was, ‘The Incredible Hulk’, ‘The Avengers’… Just at the beginning of the time in which Marvel was starting to develop a cinematic universe there was, ‘Blade’!
Blade is this fantastic Action/Horror movie franchise that really does keep you on the edge of your seat and has just enough horror in it so that we can review it here on Hell In Space!
And with that said… I thought it would be fun to review the movie, Blade 2 (2002)!
Written by: David S. Goyer (Dark City) & Directed by: Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy). Starring: Wesley Snipes (Passenger 57), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Leonar Varela (Odd Thomas), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong) & Luke Goss (Tekken).
“Silver don’t do jack shit man, don’t waste the bullets!“ – Reinhardt (A quote by: Ron Perlman, from the movie, Blade 2 (2002).)
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 (Played by: Wesley Snipes), Whistler (Played by: Kris Kristofferson) and an armory expert named Scud (Played by: Norman Reedus) 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.
Now I am gonna say that the first Blade movie is always going to be my favorite… The action was great, the special effects were great and the casting was great!
The thing that I honestly loved about Blade 2, is that there was a stronger inclination toward horror… They tried to do that with Blade 3… But in this one you met one of the oldest active vampire on the planet… And that was cool… But you also got to see Vampires more as an infestation then an ancient threat!
Anyway, you should definitely run through the whole series, but if you get a chance, check out Blade 2! I think you are really going to I think you are really going to like it!
