Blade II is a 2002 American vampire action film based on the fictional Marvel Comics character Blade. It is a sequel to the film Blade, and the second in the Blade film series. It is directed by Guillermo del Toro, and was written by David S. Goyer, who returned from the previous film. In addition, Wesley Snipes returned for the lead role and again as a producer.
The movie begins at a blood bank. A homeless man walks into the clinic and sits by another homeless man (Luke Goss) with a scar running down his chin. He sees that the scarred man looks nervous and tries to relax him by telling him that they pay well there. The other man still looks uneasy as the nurse takes him into the clinic. They walk down a very dark and deserted hallway until they reach a room with several people waiting. The man starts to panic and is forced into the medical chair in the center of the room. A vampire starts a blood draining device and is about to suck out the homeless man's blood when the man's whimpering turns into derisive laughter. The homeless man drains the blood of the female guard, and takes several bullets near the heart without serious harm before hurling the second guard against the wall. Grabbing the hapless vampire, the man's jaws open up and he looks at the surveillance camera and speaks in the vampire language, "Vampires, I hate vampires."
Two years have passed since the ending of the first film, and Blade has been keeping himself busy in the hunt for Whistler. He has been sweeping across Russia and eastern Europe searching for his old friend and mentor, enlisting the aid of a young man named Scud to design him a new line of gadgetry and weaponry. In the first scene of the film, Blade fights his way through a large gang of vampires, leaving one of their number, Rush, alive yet telling him he will be back for him. Blade finds Whistler locked in a tank of blood by a cruel gang of vampires who were keeping him alive for purposes of torture. Blade rescues him and brings him to Prague.
Meanwhile, a crisis has arisen in the vampire community. What seems to be a more developed strain of vampirism (dubbed the "Reaper virus") is sweeping through their ranks, giving its carriers fearsome new characteristics. The original carrier of the strain seems to be Jared Nomak, a one-time vampire who appears to have mutated. Far stronger than common vampires, the Reapers have three-way jaws, leech-like suckers and un-stakable hearts encased in a thick layer of bone, making them invulnerable to any weapon barring sunlight. In order to combat the virus, the vampire elder/overlord Eli Damaskinos and his lawyer Karl Kounen send their minions Asad and Nyssa (who is Damaskinos' daughter) to find and strike an uneasy treaty with Blade, proving to him that the Reapers are the greater evil and once they finish the vampire population, they will doubtlessly descend on humankind. Whilst Blade may hate vampires, the Reapers are far more dangerous and neither side can attack them without uniting first.
