my penance is to try and write a review without making any
crass and lame jokes about Luke Goss. I went in a cynical
frame of mind wondering what new way Hollywood has thought
up to show people having their entrails showered about the
Wesley Snipes was fighting vampires. Blade 2 sees him joining
forces with them to stop the Reapers, a new breed of genetically
modified uber-blood suckers lead by Luke Goss, and who are
going through both humans and vampires like Leicester's opponents
are going through their goal mouth.
The Reapers are one of the best monsters to come out of Hollywood
in a long time with a mouth that opens up at the chin which
will give you a smile with more teeth than you would have
thought necessary for sucking blood.
this is a lot better than the original Blade. Gone is the
constant gloomy outlook and in comes some genuinely black
humour and even some romance (but not much as super heroes
never really have much time to kiss).
Of course, Blade 2 isn't believable for a moment but that's
not the point. Since it is based on a graphic novel, it has
the moodiness and the atmosphere that is required for this
kind of film plus it has action sequences on a par with The
Matrix. It's an adrenaline fix for anyone who wants to stop
behaving like an adult for a couple of hours and watch blood
being sprayed here, there and everywhere. It won't win any
Oscars but it's perfect popcorn entertainment for those looking
for some nice dirty fun.
not a Bros joke in anywhere in the review!
out where to see this movie locally.
(Some films will not be shown in Leicester)
