Blade was awesome!

A high adrenaline film however you look at it.

It was very highly concentrating on martial arts exhibition, especially sword fighting. Very predictable and pandered towards an unsophisticated audience the way it was shot, until the martial arts moves became closer to bare-hand and traditional weapons (versus sci-fi ones) and I could follow the moves as someone who's into the arts, and appreciate the choreography and the challenge that shooting those fight sequences involved. - Ah - here it is - with the vampires all turning into fire and ash when touched by Blade's silver, it was too cliche and easy for him - until he met the ghoulish zombie creatures. Then the martial arts got noticeably more interesting.

Second to that, it saw gore and special effects or make-up and costuming - almost into the Alien Autopsy stage. Also predictable, though the mad-scientist vampire and the forensics specialist vampire chic were new twists that were a lot of fun.

Next, it was poetically put together, with a romantic tragedy worked into it, and an appocalyptic countdown that had to be stopped before all the world would be dominated by the blood-suckers. Typical, but nicely done. The vampire commando team was a crazy, but great idea. Though it wonders if the writers wanted to make a vampire movie, or redo the Dirty Dozen?

Finally, the plot twists, double-crosses (if you pardon the pun and how it applies to vampire movies), and the plot feints (like not knowing who will turn) were all a lot of fun.

I totally liked this movie and would watch it in the theaters again!

It actually was BETTER than the first Blade movie, something every sequel hopes to do.

I enjoyed this movie as well. I was a fan of the Marvel Comic character before the first movie, and I liked the first movie too. But Blade II was spectacular. It was just what it should have been. It was a nice break from these "Hollywood Art" films like "In the Bedroom" and whatnot.

Blade II was the only comic based movie that I think surpassed the actual comic. It has to be the best action sci-fi hybred since Matrix. It was just a cool, bad *** action film, everything it should've been and more.

I just watched Blade for the first time today (:eek: commence flaming:eek: ) and I really liked it. I'm not sure why it took me 4 years to see it, but I'm glad I did. And I plan on seeing Blade II in a theater, probably this weekend :)

I liked it. The final battle was awsome. The only thing that I saw wrong with this movie was the fact that it didn't seem like much was at stake compared to the original movie. Then again, there isn't a lot out there more threatening than the ressurrection of a vampire god.

In the next movie, Blade is going to learn something we all knew - that to destroy the largest vampire kingdom, he is going to have to infiltrate the IRS!

-and they're going to want to know how he can afford those weapons and where that car came from! ;)

But seriously, I am enjoying these movies and hope we see more. I don't know how they can top this one, though!

Blade II was awesome!

I almost forgot - did anyone see Dracula 2000?

That movie also rocked! I like the way they took a spin on the Dracula legend and made him actually Judas!

Will Blade take him on?!

Buffy could ....well you know what I'd like HER to do. :D

This movie made me hungry for more blood. The Vampire Princess deal in Anne Rice's stuff is due out soon, too. Isn't it?

I'll miss Tom and Brad acting together. That was fun.

But I do agree that the Judas storyline was a cool idea, and the way to kill him was a satisfying resolution.

Anyways I don't think I'll see Blade 2 in theatres, I want to, but no transportation. :( Guess I'll just wait to see if a DVD boxset of Blade 2 and Blade comes out. Roeper gave it a thumbs down on that Ebert and Roeper show, the slimo. :Pirate:

I saw Blade II. Saying it is better than Blade I is a no-brainer. The first one was campy and weak. THE BADThe characters in the second one were cliche (The giant bald russian with a mallet?!!? C'mon...) The fight scenes were pretty cool until they crossed into CGI so bad it looked like video game graphics. I didn't see any twists and turns like Tycho mentioned. Well, okay I SAW them, but they were telegraphed so far in advance, they weren't really plot twists. The new sidekick turning bad, etc. It was an okay film, but I won't be buying it. THE GOODRon Pearlman, as always, rocked. And it was good to see Kris Kristofferson back, even if it was an incredulous contrivance. Old coots like him and Sam Elliot in We Were Soldiers are fun! I also liked the actor that played the main baddie/son of the old vampire. Hope to see more of him in the future. All in all the film was what it was. I've seen better. I've seen a lot worse.

I'll give you D2K and Queen of the Damned, but don'choo go slammin Buffy LTB! :D

Blade2 was a lot of fun, although I went to go see it again and it wasn't nearly as cool as the first time. This was because I knew all of the plot twists already, but I figured with all the awesome action scenes I would like it anyway. But it just didn't excite me the second time. Oh well, still a good movie.:)

And I thought it was much better than the first. I liked the original but there were always some things about it that just annoyed me, such as why the older vampires from the council are stupid enough to get kidnapped by Frost. It seems like they would be smarter than that after all those years of plotting and planning.

Anyway, I want a boxed set too LTB. I held off on getting the first DVD for a long time, so hopefully Blade 2 will come out soon.

Fuh, fnuh, feh... This movie was a piece of flotsam that insulted the high quality of the first Blade movie. Just about everything that made the first one so great was screwed up for this Hollywood-cliche movie. This movie follows the same path of faults that Batman (1989)'s sequels befell - too many characters and too much color, not enough concentration on what made the original so good.

It seems like the more money went to everybody's heads, the effects were over the top, the fight scenes were too thoughtless and reminiscent more of video games (seen a lot in many recent over-CGed movies), too many things were inconsistent (Blade fighting with cheesy extra moves instead of efficiency, suits that let the ninja vampires... an idea which itself was doofy... walk around in the day being completely forgotten about when it was convenient to the plot, Blade popping the bomb from Reinhardt's head in Scud's hand rather than off Reinhardt's head, the "head vampire" not being able to regenerate after being bitten by his "son" and bleeding cheesy green blood, vampires congregating in large parties after the first movie said this was something the vampire heirarchy didn't want this, Blade falling in love with a vampire girl, etc.,), and I really hated the whole mutant vampires that just looked ridiculous - I mean, the first movie left so much of the best stuff to subtlty rather than overkill, this is why they scrapped the whole first ending!

The original Blade film came out BEFORE the Matrix, it's popularity is part of what gave birth to the Matrix and to X-men; yet while Blade was so much more believable than the Matrix (as it was supposed to be), Blade II seemed an awful lot more like a cheap wannabe of the Matrix rather than an honest film.

Blade worked for me also because there was a smart, believable enemy who wasn't all-powerful or all-knowing, yet had enough moxy to try to make a big change. Blade II's main villians failed for me because they were 1-dimensional, gimmicky, obviously beatable, and over-the-top for a vampire movie!!! (That's really saying something)

I'm just glade I have the original Blade on DVD now, that is one great film. The sequel makes me sad.

Rollo, I agree with you about Ron Pearlman, who was actually in the audience in the showing I was at last Friday in Burbank. I also agree with you about Whistler coming back, though I don't think it was as contrived as you did since the character actually had a wound on his neck in the first movie after his big beat-down (ok, it was contrived, but I took it because Kristoferson was the best thing in this film IMO). And heck, I agree with you about the Mutant Vampire son, he did a good job (except I hated his visual look so much that it made me wish they didn't give him that stupid separating jaw and goofy sci-fi tongue).

JediTricks makes some good points, but the movie IS still awesome from my perspective. I totally love new romps with my favorite movie characters, like Blade.

I had a question though: what were the vampires in the club doing when they had that guy with his back ripped open and they were messing in his insides. He was obviously a vampire, so what was up with that? Why are they seen eating each other, sort of, in some other scenes in the club?

Looking at the movie from both "in Blade's realm" and as a person going to see something contrived in Hollywood - sure one answer is "They wanted the effects guys to make stuff super weird." OK great...

I am more interested in some kind of "plausible" fictional answer. Anyone got any?

I think I remember the Director on one "behind the scenes" snippets talking about how that's vampires' version of tatoos or something. I thought it was just to wierd people out, and that vampires by nature are sick like that.

Tycho
04-05-2002, 12:43 AM
Maybe it's like their version of the gauntlet.

Can you take the pain?

Dracula says to LeStat: "Hey, we're bored living for 1,000 years but I've got an idea: Let's rip your spine out of your body and see how long it takes you to regenerate a new one!"

LeStat: "Hey, that sounds most-excellent, Old Dude!"

Maybe if you and I become vampires, we can shoot each other with hand guns just to see what getting shot feels like.

Well, if you're going to live forever, you might as well learn everything.

No wonder Vampires are so scientifically advanced. That's one thing that was realistic about the movie. Imagine if DeVinci or Einstein were vampires. What would they have discovered by now?

When they got bored of being vampires, they could always discover the cure for vampirism.

Now there's a plot. Perhaps Pasteur is a vampire, or someone like the doctor that discovered cures for some famous diseases.

The younger vampires don't even want to chance their fun getting interrupted by some vampire "police" that have this new cure to make them mortal again.

Blade has to protect the vampire scientists. Interesting?

Blade II rocked...I've seen it twice. The fight scenes are awesome. I liked the whole Vampire Overlord thing, i was sorry to see him die. I would have much rather him escaped and the girl and Blade kill that "vampire-gone-bad." that way they could have teamed up in next flick to kill the Overlord. But that is my cray thoughts, I really just wanted to see that girl from Chile some more:p

I do think the Overlord died WAY TOO EASY. To be that cool...you got to have some power. I know he was old and all, but he should have had more tricks then that. He was by far my favorite character in film...I mean who bathes in blood that you know and is not cool?

Wolfwood319
04-05-2002, 11:27 PM
Actually, I liked that Nomak character even better. Something about an evil guy who is even more powerful than a regular Vampire, who hunts vampires. And I loved the way his jaw opened up with that cool tongue.

The fights were the best though.

Cotasnoova
04-05-2002, 11:36 PM
Novak was cool....but come on....the Vampire Overlord. I want to know how old that guy was, where he was born, and what is up with that skn tone. It would be him, the Emperor, Mumm-Ra, and Charon all hanging out on my shelf at home.

I guess i just wish that he would not have died so cheesy. This should be a lesson to the vampires. Do not surrond yourself with weakbehind familiars, go ahead and turn them into Vampires to give yourself a better fighting chance. I would rather have 50 vampires fighting Blade then 50 dudes with shock sticks.

Can't wait for three to come out.

I saw it and was not very impressed, I like the first one much more. :) I was glad to see Scud get his comeuppance in the way he did, and Reinhardt's death was long overdue.

I thought the Blade character was underdeveloped . . . the only thing that interested me there was his relationship with the Overlord's daughter, which could have been better.

Still, it was better than alot of other movies I've seen lately :)

Tycho
04-06-2002, 12:45 AM
I loved Blade II, as I previously stated, but now an inconsistency is bothering me:

Blade's mother (in the first one) was actually younger looking than Blade (when she was a vampire).

Why did the Overlord age? Couldn't he appear as any age he wanted to? Shouldn't he have 'gotten young' to try and kick Novak's butt?

OK - I know the deal that the directors wanted Overlord to look like a father's age next to Novak, and so did the Overlord, to get Novak's sympathy appeal. But Overlord could have seen how the tides were turning. His son wouldn't have just killed 50 of the Overlord's best protectors just to get close enough to him for an apology!

I also think it was cool how there was not a final conflict between Blade and the Overlord - that part would have been too predictable. (such as make Novak ultimately the good guy like he professes to Whistler that he was, then have Overlord kill him, so the final showdown was with Blade - much more predictable than how it came down, wouldn't you agree?)

Finally, who was the Overlord? Surely not the first vampire ever? He was kind of the leader of the Vampire Nation, right? The real Master vampire (Dracula, or whoever it will be in the Blade legend) would never bother with a Vampire Nation and perhaps may be so invulnerable that they wouldn't bother with scientific experimenting such as in "Blade: The Attack of the Clones," which we saw. Perhaps the real Vampire First would also have the powers of a DayWalker, and be every bit an equal match for Blade.

I can see another movie coming. Whistler and Blade might be close to a cure and need another Vampire's work, but the real Master steps in to prevent them from succeeding and tempts Blade with power, especially now since a woman has lured Blade towards accepting the Vampire's sin. Blade strays to the Dark Side. I can see it now, but it would be cool! Predictably, Whistler will bring him back, btw....

Still, nice idea?

Cotasnoova
04-06-2002, 12:53 AM
They need to decide wether they are going to roll the dice and make more than 3 movies, or make just 3 movies. If they are going to make 3 movies only I think Blade needs to run into the Grandmaster of all Vampires, like the guy tycho is talking about. Someone who is just super-bad. I mean the man who first got the vampire "cancer" in his blood. I would love to see Blade have to travel to an OLD OLD city like setting. Where the super-bad vampire dwells. I think it would be neat if this vampire did not surraond himself by technology, but used old Vampire stuff. Maybe see a vampire that has a very old army to use as a defense screen. I don't know. I would just like to see Blade end it in part 3. Maybe he can try to find something that the super cool Vampire has been hiding for thousands of years that he knows can be his downfall.


Or there could be a super-bad Vampire that shows himself and thousands of years and masses the ranks of vampires up for an end all be all war with Blade.


The possiblities are endless here.

From what I've heard, the director wants Blade III to take place in the the future if they do make it. In this futuristic world, vampires would rule the world and humans will be like pets/cattle. A vampiristic twist to Planet of the Apes in a way.

The open skin thing is like an extension of the current piercing thing, "how far can you go" sort of stuff.

As for a cure for Vampirism, Blade 1 achieved that for "turned" vampires, only pure-bloods couldn't be cured. That's another annoying thing about Blade 2, the blood doctor chick from the first movie (you know, the 3rd co-star in the film) just sorta disappears completely except for the EDTA (which failed, how lame!) and Whistler's cure. Why exactly did she stop working on the issue of curing purebloods and helping Blade?

And that leads me to something else that bugged me about Blade 2, there was no sense of Blade's life-mission, he was just the head soldier who couldn't trust his crew. It wasn't epic, it was just battle after battle, it felt like Blade stopped caring about the thing he devoted his entire life to simply because it fit the plot.

Hell, I even hated the new flak vest Blade was wearing, it symbolized the core problem with the film for me: it stopped being about function and was more about how it looked. The first Blade was about getting the job done as efficiently as possible because there was always more of the job to do, but when even the buckles on Blade's vest were big and flashy and too bulky for his coat, it's missing the core of what made the first one perfect.

According to Blade 1, vampires still age, just much slower than humans. Blade adged normally though because he was a mutant, it was part of his trade-off for being a day-walker.


If they make a Blade 3, it should avoid the pitfalls Blade 2 fell into and have a realistic enemy and a final confrontation that doesn't lead to "Blade's biggest battle!!!", we KNOW that Blade isn't going to be done with the fight anytime soon, we don't need to be jerked around with bigger badder missions and enemies.

You are apalled just by the trailer? Its even more apalling watching the actual movie. Thanks to a friend, I got to see this movie several months ago at a special screening. To save you some money from watching this flop, heres a summary of the entire plot.

It begins in 2010. Apparently Jason has returned from Hell and is captured by the Crystal Lake Institute. Due to his unique DNA, he can't be executed, so the government decides to study him for a profit. He breaks free and kills soldiers by the dozens. He is then cryogenically frozen with the only remaining specialist when he punctures the cryo tube he was tricked to enter. 400 years later, they are discovered on a college field trip with space marines (think Aliens). They are brought back to the main ship and are unfrozen. The specialist is saved and Jason is believed to be dead. He then wakes up and starts killing students. Meanwhile, the College Professor decides to sell Jason to make a profit. They discover the dead bodies and realize that he is alive and they send in the troops. All but one are killed. Jason then kills the pilots and destroys a whole space colony by coliding the ship with the colony. They try to escape on the shuttle, but it colides with the ship and is destroyed by a scared student. Just when it looks like it is all over, the Android student attacks Jason and blows him apart with macine guns and rocket launchers. A breach in the hull caused by the shuttle crash forces them to destroy the various tube junctions before they can be rescued. Meanwhile Jason is revived as a cyborg with the help of nano bots. The Android tries to defeat Jason again but he beheads her. They escape and the tubes are destroyed with Jason inside. From the outside of the ship he punctures the hull and gets back on board. The remaining marine uses a space suit to open the escape hatch from the outside of the ship while a rescue ship docks. The Android's head creates a hologram of Crystal Lake to trick Jason in order to by time. They escape to the ship and the marine takes on Cyber-Jason. As the rescue ship leaves, the main ship explodes. Out of the explosion comes Cyber-Jason, knife drawn, flying directly at the rescue ship.Before he can reach the ship, the space marine tackles Cyber-Jason and rides him into the atmosphere of Earth 2. They burn up and Jason's remains fall into a camp's local lake. A couple of campers decide to check out the so called "falling star". THE END.

LOL - right on, JarJar!

I wonder, is there any point to any of the Jason movies? I guess it's fun to be scared with killer characters that "jump out at you," but Aliens has messages behind the madness, as did the Terminator films, and they can still scare you.

Heck, Star Trek: First Contact did that, too.

OK, so now Jason has had his share! What's next? Jason does a Talk Show? - That would be SCARY!

Back to Blade, I agree with JediTricks that we don't always have to see the Boss-Man Bad Guy, bigger and badder than the last time, sort of like the way video games advance each level.

But making too many Blade movies also cheapens each of them, if the series isn't handled very carefully.

Anyone know how much (or not) Wesley Snipes likes playing this character? Would he continue the Blade movies?

One thing this past movie barely took notice of was Blade's teeth. In fact, many of the Vampire Commandos didn't look like Vampires but only Commandos. Their unique powers and abilities could have been elaborated on a little more. Great: one guy was a Ninja. No! He was a Ninja Vampire! They could have made more of a deal over that!

I loved this movie, but Commandos that can't go out in the sunlight? I think you could watch a Navy SEALS night ops movie and see the same thing.

But my criticism was a minor thing. This was a vampire movie no doubt! And Blade II was a great job! I hope to see it my 2nd time this weekend.

What is next should be what was supposed to be next, a few years ago. "Freddy vs. Jason". For cripes sake they set it up in the "last" Friday the 13th film when Freddy's glove pops out of the ground and pulls Jason's mask down to hell.

Went to see Blade II at the cinema last night...it was pretty cool. It was nothing compared the the origional though, and what is it with movies these days using CGI humans in some action scenes when they managed those sorts of scenes a couple of years ago with real actors. When Blade is doing all those jumps and spins you can tell he is fake.

PENDO!

04-13-2002, 01:26 PM
Pendo, I couldn't agree more about that CGI actor thing!!! From the ads, it appears a lot of the action in the upcoming Spider-Man movie will be like that as well, the shot of Spidey swinging up out of the bridge looks especially like a cheesy CGI cartoon. I hate it, it detracts from a film IMO, makes it look more like a cartoon and takes me out of the realm of belief.

I don't mind the wait. What bothers me is that I'm sure they'll package it in one of those damn snap-cases like New Line always does. :rolleyes: Will Warner Brothers and New Line ever learn?

It's a platinum edition, so I believe it's going to have a keep case. New Line has been moving away from snappers on it's Infinitim and Platinum releases. I wish Warner would dump the snappers also. But since they own the company that created them, I don't see it happening anytime soon. :(

well since blade 2 is finally screening here (since 19.6 to be exactly) I finally got to see it today and I must say, I love it
the first one is better though, but the fight are still pretty cool and Nomak is pretty cool with that opening jaw

can't believe I saw it here in the cinemas and 2 months later you guys can already watch it at home on DVD

I missed this in the theaters, but saw it last Sunday. I thought it rocked! The fight scenes were well done, CGI parts were ok, and almost all action. The DTS track was off the hook!
