A rare mutation has occurred within the vampire community. The Reaper. A vampire so consumed with an insatiable bloodlust that they prey on vampires as well as humans, transforming victims who are unlucky enough to survive into Reapers themselves. Now their quickly expanding population threatens the existence of vampires, and soon there won't be enough humans in the world to satisfy their bloodlust. Blade, Whistler and an armory expert named Scud are curiously summoned by the Shadow Council. The council reluctantly admits that they are in a dire situation and they require Blade's assistance. Blade then tenuously enters into an alliance with The Bloodpack, an elite team of vampires trained in all modes of combat to defeat the Reaper threat. Blade's team and the Bloodpack are the only line of defense which can prevent the Reaper population from wiping out the vampire and human populations.Written by
The look of Damaskinos is based off Nosferatu and the idea of his skin looking like old marble. The look for Nomak and the Reapers were based off numerous incarnations of drawings by Guillermo del Toro and concept artists, but primarily based off the mutants from Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970).

The New Line Platinum Series DVD contains several deleted scenes, including: An extended opening scene establishing Prague. A flashback sequence showing Blade's first encounter with Whistler, part of which can be seen in the film's title credits. An extended version of the ninja fight in the warehouse, with Blade using some fencing tactics to keep Asad at bay. A scene of Whistler shying away from the growing daylight outside. An alternate take of Blade's first meeting with Damaskinos, with Damaskinos wearing, according to Guillermo del Toro, a "Michael Bolton wig". A scene in which Damaskinos explains the effects vampirism has had on him. A much longer version of the House of Pain sequence, including a scene with Nyssa finding a room upstairs with a man unpacking human entrails from a box, a scene that was meant for Michael Jackson. A line by Whistler about "the power of the pussy" A Bloodpack "meeting" of sorts, with Chupa attempting to urge the others to kill Blade and go after the Reapers on their own. A scene in a bathroom after the House of Pain sequence of Lighthammer discovering how far his infection with the Reaper strain has gone. An extended scene of Damaskinos' dinner and blood bath, in which he tells of the fate of his human heart. An extended scene of the lawyer's torture of Blade A "dirty" version of the final scene, in which semen is streaked on the windows that was digitally removed in the final cut of the film because test audiences complained.

More Advanced Than the Original.
A worthy sequel and a better experience for the Blade character adaptation in the cinema world, Blade has to form an alliance with the vampire council in order to defeat the Reapers, a new common enemy to both vampires and humans.
In an advanced plot to the original with adding a new characters and a new race of creature, this sequel is one of few to rise above its predecessor. To avoid going into details, Blade II is still have its share of good, predictable ending and illogical actions/consequences, yet it is clearly has an advanced plot concept and script writing skills and with the introduction of a new "villainous" race, the reduction level of cliché phrases, shots and fighting senses along with the notable advance of CGI and an appropriate use of a better soundtrack, makes Blade II a much better action packed experience with a higher level of creepiness and scares.
