At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
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 (Yes, he's back) 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
In the DVD commentary, Guillermo del Toro said he paid homage to Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen and the book I am Legend. A reaper explodes similarly to the way Dr Manhattan explodes and the heroes were bombarded by reapers, much like the zombies bombardment in I am Legend. See more »
When in the House of Pain chasing Nomak, Blade tells Nyssa to wait here (in the hallway) since it's dawn outside as seen through the planks on the windows, yet it shows Scud at the same time in the plot trying to get the God lights to work on the truck since it's dark as night outside. See more »

I don't know, maybe I fucked up. Maybe you were right.

Alright. Poppa's got a brand new bang.

No real reapers were hurt during the making of this film. See more »
As of 2013, the SyFy Channel cable TV version of the film did the usual time and content editing and left the ending where Rush is attacked and killed by Blade in the adult entertainment theater venue. As of 2016 and 2017, often re-airings of the film end after Nyssa dies in Blade's arms after he mercy kills her by putting her out in the sun. See more »
This was one action-packed thrill ride. Though I would say I liked it about the same as the first one even though it had more action, the first one had a better plot. Though I understood everything and did not find any of the plot twists to confusing or anything like a lot of others complain about. The darker setting is very cool and the European setting makes this movie have a Gothic setting. It is a combination of the very old and new that gives this film great atmosphere. The plot is there is a new breed of vampire on the streets and normal vampires need Blade's help in disposing of them, but can he really trust them. I highly recommend this flick.
