Thanks to the surprise success of the 1998 original, based on the Marvel comic book series about a half-human/half-vampire superhero (Wesley Snipes), this sequel boasts bigger sets, snazzier special effects and a “name” director in Mexico’s Guillermo del Toro
(Mimic, The Devil’s Backbone). Unfortunately, it shares its predecessor’s relentless
fascination with blood and guts. Unless you’re a fan of hard-core gore, avoid ordering nachos at the concession stand.
