WESLEY Snipes had some good computerised fun in the first Blade and he's back here in the imaginatively titled Blade II, tackling vampires once again.
Snipes takes it all seriously and looks pretty good as Blade, the oddball given the task of rescuing his mentor Kris Kristofferson who is being held hostage by vampires in Prague - well, it could happen.
The special effects are good and director Guillermo Del Toro keeps the action fast-paced.
As a change of pace, the vampires in this new story attack their own kind AND humans, creating havoc.
It looks as if the world as we know it is coming to an end.
But with Mr Blade in control, one suspects the world will survive.
It's good fun while it lasts, rather violent and aimed at audiences who want immediate gratification.
Those who want something more substantial will have to look elsewhere.
