The daywalker returns to Verbal Diorama for Sequeltember, and this time he has a Blood Pack.
Guillermo del Toro admired Stephen Norrington's Blade so much, he analysed it in depth once he took the reins for Blade II. He wanted to build on the world of Blade (1998) by upping the blood, gore, martial arts and monsters, while also staying true to Norrington's original vision.
On its release in 2002, critics were mixed on Blade II, and even now it sits at a disappointing 57% on Rotten Tomatoes, but Blade II gave us more than the return of Wesley Snipes in the role he was born to play, more than the resurrection of Whistler, more than the always perfect Ron Perlman, or more than the terrifyingly beautiful design for the Reapers. Blade II left a lasting legacy, which is still being felt today, and without it cinema would be very different and slightly less full of beautiful monsters...
