I love creature features and Blade II
may be one of the best to come along in a while. The Reapers probably are the best movie monster since the Alien
. The action sequences, which come rapid fire one after another, are stylishly done. I especially loved the disco scene in the vampire safe house. And the plot is pretty serviceable. That the alliances are tenuous and every relationship ambiguous helps to drive the suspense pretty well. Excellent effects. If there was CGI, it didn't jump off the screen at me.
I also saw Trouble Every Day
and I must say, I was shocked, SHOCKED. There are a couple of scenes where people actually light up cigarrettes. Surely it's possible to make a movie about cannibalism without glorifying smoking.
